Friends of Unity~ March is Creativity

Hey there!!
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!
Our theme for this month is Creativity!!
At first I was stumped, then one of these wonderful ladies said we could "be creative" and use a technique...well that's all I needed to brainstorm! 
I chose to use the Shaving Cream technique for my background
All you do is squirt any type of shave cream
on a paper plate
next you use your reinkers and drip them randomly onto the shave cream
Then using a butter knife, you swirl the ink into the shave cream
here is a video from Gina K's under 5 minutes, so check it out. ok 😉
I used 
Whatever Comes Next stamp set..
 red and chocolate brown cardstock from PTI
some pretty green crinkle ribbon, and a matching brad to hold the sentiment to the ribbon.
 Sometimes I like my sentiments to move and not be stationary 
I sent this card to sweet Bobbie Sue (i heart you)


March is my birthday month, and it's also my beautiful daughters, too
She will be 22, and guess what?? 
She is pregnant with a boy
I cannot wait to meet the little guy at the beginning of July 👶

I hope you try this technique!!
It was super easy, and fast!
Up next is Dawn

to see what she has for your viewing pleasure 😉
To start from the beginning, 

Until next month!
Inky Hugs, Robyn

CLC February DT with Graciellie Design

Hey there!! Welcome back to Robyn's Nest!!
I don't know about you, but February means Valentine's Day to me!
I don't have many friends, or family with February birthdays 
so I make pretty Valentine cards!! 
For this card, I am using a digital stamp set from 
Graciellie Design (Link to store)
This pretty set is called Coffee Lovers <LINK<<
and you can get it by clicking that link

I started this card with my absolute favorite cardstock, 
Papertrey Ink, Berry Sorbet cut length wise in half
Most of my cards these days open from the bottom, and not the side
I then used a sheet of white PTI cs and a 
3D embossing folder I recently got from Sizzix
After embossing, I cut the white piece out with
Such a beautiful set of dies!! 
You just Cannot beat her prices @ $10.00 
I mounted the white to the Berry Sorbet
I colored the cups using Copic sketch marker
Prawn/R24~ I buy most of my Copics from
Back in the Fall I bought THE most beautiful assortment of ribbon from
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
They have so many gorgeous ribbons to choose from,
 but this "Color of the Year" caught my eye!
I had to have it! Once I got there, there were also some pretty
flowers from Petaloo that matched the ribbon well..
Here's a link for a closer look
Below is a closer look, under the cups

Well, that's it for me this month!
I hope you like my card!!
Until next month, 
Inky Hugs, Robyn

Friends Of Unity~ January is a New Year

Happy New Year!!
This is the first weekend of the new year!!
Friends of Unity's cue this month is..
New Year!
For my card, I used 
Celebrate the New" by Angie Blom

Click this LINK 

For this card, I used distress inks for the backgrounk
I heat embossed the fireworks from the set in white, then took my watercolor pens, and lightly went over them to add some color
I stamped,  then water colored the girl, and fussy cut her out. I don't like the white edges much, so I took my Memento pen and lightly went around them.. I even water colored her hair, too
I really like how this one turned out :) 

The for my next card, I used the same sentiment stamp and fireworks. This time I gold embossed 
I added some embellishments to the upper left corner, 
such as, star shaped brads, and gold thread from SU!. 
The shiny gold washi tape helped with the raw looking folded edge...
this was a super quick card

Here are the two of them together
Well, that's it for me this..
There are a few giveaways again this month!!!

I loved coloring the beautiful flowers on this stamp
Using two different pieces of cardstock, and changing up the main flower color, gave me exactly what I wanted.
The die set, comes with two word dies, too. 
Thanks, and Tea
Here's a link to  A Cup Of Thanks, Dies
I love that this die cuts the space in the handle.
It was VERY easy to line the die up, before cutting.
Plenty of room around the image too! I LOVE that!!

Studio Katia sells the most 
beautiful embellishments, too! 
I am kind of a sequins snob, 
and their sequins and jeweled crystals are so
 beautiful that I want them all!
 I used Gold sparkle crystals, and Sunny Topaz ..below is a link
