Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team~ July

 Hey there, welcome back to Robyn's Nest!!  

For this months card, I wanted to use a stamp set I bought a few months back from Super Sponsor Altenew, called Dancing in the Rain <<LINK
I love each and every stamp in this wonderful set! 
I started off by stamping the "rain" in soft blue, on watercolor paper.
I used the window die from SU!, and baked brown sugar cs
For the background paper, I used a sheet from Webster's Pages called
Sweet Notes (Allison Kraft Designs) ~ I just love this bookcase background

The kitty and the coffee cups were stamped, and fussy cut, then popped up onto the windowsill.

I love this sentiment! It fits "me" so well....

Well, that's it for me this month!!
I hope you like my card!
See you again in August 
Inky Hugs!!!

May CLC Design Team

Hey there! 
Welcome back to my blog for my May card for
Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. 
I am really excited about this card. 
I cannot remember where I saw a card that had a tea pot pouring flowers into a tea cup, but I really loved that idea and wanted to make one too!! 
For my card, I started with Blueberry Sky cardstock as my base,
then added the design paper with a gingham pattern. 
I used a die from Papertrey Ink called Plaid Die
I colored the inside of the die with gray and blue Copic markers to make them pop. 
For the teapot and cup, I used some DSP from SU! and the dies from Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte stamp and die set.. (so cute) 
The sentiment came from  Unity Stamp Co. called My Cup of Tea...

I used it on my card from last month too..
The sheer ribbon is from CTMH.. I LOVE their sheer ribbon colors! 
And lastly, I added these tiny flowers from The Paper Studio. You will be seeing these a lot on my cards because I love them so much! 
Thanks for stopping by!!

For my first card, I started out by using SU!'s Crumb Cake cs, and DSP! I think this color is just gorgeous!
I used Joy Clair's Coffee Lover stamps..
I used some Mellow Moss ink for the heart on the cup, fussy cut it out and popped it up.
I love the Papertrey Ink Basic bookmark 3 DIE <<Link highlighted in red<<
I used a piece of burlap, and coordinating ribbon, and some vellum flowers.
Pretty Pink Posh sequins here and there...
This card is big (5x6 1/2)  I love having a bit more room sometimes, for embellishments.. :)

For this second card for the hop, I used Joy Clair Christmas Coffee..
I stamped the coffee cup onto a piece of cs from PTI.. 

I wanted this card to have a lot of texture!! 
I fussy cut the cup out, then added some Nuvo Crystal clear drops to the spots on the cup.
I mounted the cup, once it was dry to a burlap tag given to me by my friend Bobbie Sue!!
I used DSP from SU! and Mellow Moss cs as my base.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers ~ April

Welcome back to
What's Brewin; From Robyn's Nest
for my April blog post with Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog!
I am so happy to share my card with you all this month! 
I have been a busy blogger lately, but loving it!! 

For this card, I went to my K&Company paper packs for some inspiration! 
Then, I went thought my ever growing
Unity Stamp Co stamps. 
I have just recently bought this tea bag stamp called
 Cup Of Tea. <<You can find it with this link in red :) 
I water colored the stamped image with my Arteza water color pens.
I mounted it on some Close to Cocoa cs from SU! after cutting it out with a die. 
Then, I used velum to cut out the flourish die and some tiny hearts..
the small rose at the bottom right was a gift from a friend,....
I think the font on the sentiment is so pretty <3 
I hope you like my card. I have so much fun making it.  
Please leave a comment and let me know how I'm doing! 
I love reading and responding to them!

Friends of Unity~ April Showers

Hey there!!
Welcome back to Friends of Unity, a monthly Blog Hop featuring Unity Stamp Company stamps and our love of them! 
I hope you came here to me from Dawn Fields blog
I am last on the list this month!! 
If you'd like to start at the beginning, the click here to go to Amber's blog!!
This month we decided to use the theme
"April Showers"
Here is what I made using Harmony Girl,
by Angie Blom
I have been collecting Angie's Girls for over 10 years.
Truth be told, I don't remember which Angie I bought first, but I do know I was hooked!! LOL
ok, onto this card

 But first, I wanted to say...
I LOVE this sentiment

For the card, I used Island Indigo cs as my base.
Then I went through my K&Co cs, and found this beautiful pattern paper. 
I stamped Harmony Girl on plain white cs,
then used Creamy Caramel craft ink from SU! around the edges.
Then mounted her to a scrap piece of
Creamy Caramel cs. 
Colored her with Copics 
I added some "dew drops" for a rain look 
That is pretty much it. The cardstock (cs) is so busy, that I didn't feel the card needed many embellishments.. 

Well, I hope you enjoyed the Hop this month! 
Please leave us a comment along the way to let us know if you enjoy our cards! 
Someone is having a giveaway this month, so be sure to comment if you want a chance to win!! 

On a side note~ I like to thank Crystal Minkler for creating us all, this amazing watermark! She worked very hard on them, and we all appreciate her so much!! MUAHH

I am IN LOVE with this amazing digital set called, Hug in a Mug
I used the stacked cups and sentiment Let's catch up over coffee! 
Papertrey Ink cardstock, and printed paper.
Scalloped edge die is also from PTI...
Some sheer ribbon, and a few Prima tiny flowers were the perfect embellishments to compliment this pretty card! 

For this one, I used a stencil sent to me by my sweet
friend Crystal Minkler.
It is from Tim  Holtz. Coffee rings and splotches were my base.
Then I colored the ice coffee cups, and added the ice cubes here and there.
Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and some twine from PTI..
