Friends of Unity~ October 2022

Hey everyone!
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!
I love when the new month starts. That's when my friends, and I get together to show our love of our Unity stamps!!
This months cue "Anything But a Card"

I went with a bag topper and gift card holder
I use this tea set I've had for years!
Tea Love  <<link to Unity
For the bag topper base, I used a scalloped die set from Papertrey Ink..
I folded it in half and stapled it to the clear cello bag
I stamped the sentiment onto a separate piece of card stock, then clued it over the staples
I hope you have enjoyed this months hop!

Hey there! Welcome to Robyn's Nest
I'm back again this month with my friends, and teamies at
 Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers
This months cue is Coffee, Tea, and Cocoa
OMG, YAY!!!!! 

I am quite coffee obsessed (can you tell?)
For this first card, I used a couple of cute,
 cup holding owls.
*Great Day Owl 
*Ray of Sunshine

I did a small amount of Copic coloring with the
 E family ;) 
The branches they are sitting on are from,
 My Favorite Things
So cute
The coffee circled paper is from Stampin Up (retired)
Next up is...

this frazzled girl..
 the set is called
 Planner Girl: Liquid Hug
I also used the larger 2 dies from Unity's Scalloped dies (love them)
...and lastly, we have.....

Y'all, I gasped when I saw this stamp!!
I pretty much have, or have had every coffee stamp Unity makes, and this went in my cart so fast!! Campers, thermos' and s'mores
 are ya kidding???!!! 
Thank you Angie Blom ;)
I don't actually "go" camping, but, I love everything crafty camping
(I have 2 campers, too LOL one is vintage)...nope, never camped with them

Welcome to the team!!!


For this card, I stamped out the image

I colored her up with a few copics

C-3-5-7 on the dress and went over the dress with BV-000 to give it a purplish hue

Her hair is colored with E50-52 flicks of E-17 and Y19  and that , my friends, is it! 

I fussy cut her out and using a sketch by Crystal, I popped her up a bit so she didn't get lost in all that purdy" crinkle ribbon 

My papers are from Echo Park, called

 Halloween Party

Also!!! Have you bought Unity's Scallops and Rectangles {nesting dies} 

Scallops & Rectangles {nesting dies}  <<link

Game changer for me!! I love that they take the guess work right out of having to measure layers! I just know I'll be using the a lot!! I did, in fact use them for the first time on this card!

 Easy peasy

That's it from me this month!!

I love this card!!! What a beautiful one it is. 😍


Thank you, Martha!! 

Please email me at

put in the subject space, FOU winner 



So the cue this month is "Stencils "

I don't use many stencils, usually, so I was excited to get Distress Oxide inky for this month, when

 lo, and behold, my SSS Kit of the month came in...can you say, inspiration!!

In this months Simon Says Stamp kit is the beautiful sunburst stencil

I paired it with Unity's Kit of the Month from May 2021 called 



Summer Vibes {kom 5/21} 


This beachy kit get SO much use from me!!!

For this card, ...
 I grabbed so many ink pads, I'd hate to try and list them. so just have some fun with color..

I stamped, then colored, then fussy cut her, and the beach out. 

I stamped the sentiment so many times on so many things, such as velum, and clear card stock, blue cs and white too, but in the end, I simply stamped the sentiment directly onto the card front (eeep, because there's no going back, right?) 

Perfect! I loved it! 

Then I wrapped it around the bottom of the stenciled layer, and Bam! Done...

well, sorta.. I added the blue'ish layer then added it my card base (Slimline)

This was a fun card to make and I've already sent it a friend in Florida who needs some good juju 😉

(remember the "shroom" lady??) 


here's a link to Simon Says Stamp (SSS)
