Merry and Bright

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thank you so much for stopping today!

I can't believe that we are over half way through November.  It's (past) time for me to get serious with those Christmas cards and gift tags!  I thought it would be fun and motivational for me to play along with a challenge or two and get myself busy on these Christmas projects.  So, today's card was inspired by the current Sketch Challenge going on over at My Favorite Things:

I used the "Perfect Poinsettia" die set and inked up my cuts with several shades of red and green Distress Ink.  I couldn't get the deep, rich red I wanted until I mixed in a little "Ground Espresso" ink and that did the trick.

My sentiments are from the MFT stamp set, "Hand Lettered Holiday".

I stamped my sentiments in black ink then Versamark clear and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I love the shiny look this method creates.

That about wraps things up!
I'm off to link up my project. Thank you so much for visiting with me today.
Have a great day and I hope to see  you soon.

Happiest of Holidays

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I have a couple of projects that I have completed in the last few days but haven't had a chance to post to my blog.  I find that I spend less and less time on my blog these days. It seems everyone has gone to Facebook and Instagram to share their projects, myself included. It's so much faster and easier to share on those platforms.  How do you feel about blog posts and blog visits these days? Too much time and trouble involved or do you still enjoy your blog time?  Some days I think I'm ready to give up my blog completely, but I'm pretty sure I would end up regretting it.  So I guess I'll continue on for now and just see how the trends continue.  In the meantime, I truly appreciate your visits and your sweet comments - they mean so much to me!
Ok...on with today's card....
This adorable Santa is from the "Santa & Friends" stamp set by My Favorite Things. I colored him up with my Copic Markers and added a little glitter to his suit for some holiday sparkle. My background was created with the "English Brick Wall" stencil from MFT.

Isn't that deer the sweetest?
To turn my card into a shaker, I used the MFT die set, "Classic Window".  I added a Christmas tree and some gold star shaped sequins behind the window.
And there you go!
Again...thank you so much for dropping in for a visit.  Have a wonderful day and I hope to see you again very soon.

Have A Cool Christmas

Hi there!
Welcome to Studio 5380 - thanks for dropping by.

I finally put together my first Christmas card for the season and I think it turned out pretty cute. It's hard to go wrong with the adorable "Cool Christmas" stamp set from My Favorite Things....

This set is seriously adorable!

All my images are colored with Copic Markers and I added a little sparkle here and there with a Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen.

This was a fun card to put together!
Thanks again for stopping by today, I hope to see you soon!

Christmas Gift Tags

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

I don't know how November got here so quickly - September is a blur and October went by in a snap! But, here it is and it's time to begin getting things ready for Christmas. So, today I would like to share my first Christmas 2018 project with you....

I put together these sweet, shaker gift tags using a few Lawn Fawn products:

"Say What? Christmas Critters" stamp set/dies
"Say What?" Gift Tags die set

I colored all my images with Copic Markers and added a bit of bling here and there.

I filled the shaker portion of the tag with some cute metallic snowflakes made by Recollections. I've had them for years and am happy to have found a use for them!

And there you go - the start of my Christmas 2018 collection - better late than never!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!
