Friends of Unity July is Vintage

Hey there :)

Welcome back to Robyn's Nest
I really hope you have enjoyed this months Hop! 
We also hope we have inspired you in some way, too
My post is going to have to be short and sweet this month
Ok, now for this months card...
Man, did I struggle with the theme this month...
what I call vintage is not what Pinterest would call it.
 I searched "handmade vintage cards"...
to me, that is called Shabby Chic~ other than some vintage photos, 
Pinterest was no help for inspiration.. 
I guess my card is more Retro than anything... 
I used Adventures on the Bright Side<<link
Colored the image with Copics in the W/1-7 family
Added some Gina Marie enamel dots, and the
 sentiment is from Unity's set called Good Vibes 
ok...well, if you got this far, you made it to the end of the Hop!! 
Yay!! Congratulations

Let's get this party started!!

I LOVE iced tea!
I make at least one gallon of sweet tea per day for my family!
The sweeter, the better, too!

For my first card, I used SugarPea Designs 
I started out by creating the background with Oxides
I used a brown pen to draw the wonky lines boarder
I  dipped my fingers in water, and flicked the water over the background, then using my water pen, I grabber some of the Oxide colors and dipped the pen in some water, and flicked the color on top of the water marks until I reached my desired effect.
 I used my heat gun to help dry it a bit faster

I also used the stamp set 
Such a cute set!! I love it!!
I love the fonts, and the super cute sentiments!! 

Here is a second card I made for the hop
I decided to cut the cup from velum for this card...
I colored on top the velum with Copic markers...then I get this bright idea...yeah, right?! I will use my colorless blender to "make ice" 
It doesn't look great, but, I didn't hate it. 
I used a flourish I had, and some little flowers
I had a small piece of glittered tulle just laying on my table,
 so I added it to the lemon, and lime then I trimmed it

I sure hop you are Hopping along with us and arrived here to my blog from

 Friends of Unity Blog Hop!!

I think lots of couples pick June to "tie the knot"
I did, too!
June 17th will be our 35th wedding anniversary 

For this months card, I chose to use 
After stamping this image, I just thought it should be cut with an oval die. 
As you can imagine, cutting off her beautiful, long flowing dress was a bit risky, but I do love how it turned out :)
I think this is a beautiful set!!
I used hand died crinkle ribbon, matching flowers, and doily all hand-made by my crafty friend,
 Jessica Pickeral Burnham from Polka Dot Orchard 
You all know Jess. This past week was her GUI week
Jessica is going to be taking special orders for these flowers, and ribbon in the near future!
