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!

Friends of Unity~ September 2022

 

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 
and
*Ray of Sunshine

I did a small amount of Copic coloring with the
 E family ;) 
E-36-37-40-41-42
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 
 
ok...well, I have enjoyed this months cue very much

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

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/

 

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??)

Now, let's see some details that card, ok!! 

This months cue is so fun!!! I needed a few "men" cards, but only made this one :(
Life gets so busy, eh?
I used Kit of the Month from February 2022
Such an amazing KOM!!
Did you notice that fabulous guitar??

First I grabbed a piece of kraft card stock, then using Versafine watermark stamp pad I randomly stamped a few guitars to the paper as a background...then I used clear embossing powder from WOW and heat embossed to set it...
while that was drying, I colored, then fussy cut the guitar out...
Using Versafine Sepia, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed
I literally had this piece of burlap on my work table, added it behind the guitar
Loved that much so far, so I added some jute and I was finished!! 
 
I really hope you have enjoyed the hop!!!

Friends of Unity~ May 2022

Hey there, everyone!!
Today starts the May 2022 Friends of Unity Blog Hop
Our cue this month is 
"Things With Wings"
First I'd like to announce my winner from April 2022
Kelsey Thomas!!

Your cards are gorgeous! Love how you colored the tulips, and that butterfly card is amazing. :) 

Congrats, girl!!!!

 
 
Please email me at 

robyn6420@aol.com to claim your prize!!

Use FOU winner in the subject, please and 

Congratulations!!!

For my May card, I use the Kit of the Month for March 2022

This kit is GORGEOUS!!! 

I have stamped off almost all the images! What a nice assortment, and the best part....A new Angie's Girl with a cup!! YAY!

Here's how it all went down ( 😉

After stamping and coloring the flowers, I chose a pretty background paper, then I was stuck...I couldn't get a good matching color for the butterflies because I am almost always a monochromatic kind of girl, and, well, using a different color is hard for me, so I went to my experts (Crystal & Eileen) for some help!! 

The suggestion of red worked very well for me because of the tiny red splatters on the paper

~ paper pad is from Not 2 Shabby called So Refreshing  

I hope you like the card

here's a link to the March KOM
That's it for me!!
I sure hope you had fun hopping with us this month
Remember to comment along the way, and leave us all some lovin's
