My first card for the hop!!

I used pink & Main 6X6 paper pack called 
Pumpkin Spice
and their newest stamp set 
Pumpkin Spice 
(available for PRE-ORDER now with this 
My second card

My third card

All 3 cards were colored with Copics
I used the Stitched leaves from Lawn Fawn on all 3 cards

This stamp on my 4th and 5th card for the hop is from
Ink Road Stamps~ Michelle is now sold out .. 

I colored Michelle with Copics and used pretty (retired) Papertrey Ink pattern paper.. I try to always use ribbon or burlap on my cards. I found I had sage green sheer ribbon in my growing stash and it added a soft touch to this card. Adding some Paper Studio flowers and leaves finished it off!

My 5th card

I couldn't wait to make this Fall scene card with Michelle!!
It turned out so cute (I wish you could see it in person) 
here's a few close ups 


Well, that's it for me!!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers~ September

Hey there, what's brewin'?? 
Welcome back to Robyn's Nest

For this months card I used Spring To Go
from Unity Stamp Company
Spring to Go  
I started off with pattern paper from 
 I used the stitched scalloped frame die from Poppy
stamped the image, then used copics to color in the flowers to match.
I used some glitter tulle off to the side. 
Punched a couple butterflies from my Martha Stewart punch and added some bling to their middle.
the "hello" die is something I've had a while and I cannot remember who makes it ..
I hope you like my card for this month!!

Inky Hugs!!

Friends of Unity~ September is Wings

Hey there!! 
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!! 

We are growing here at Friends of Unity!! 
We are thrilled to announce the addition of 
Kim Van Zant Klinklovsky
Bobbie Sue McConathy
Both ladies are such amazing crafters that share our love for Unity Stamp Company!!
We are lucky to have them accept our invitation!! 
Welcome ladies!!!

My 1st card for this months hop is keeping a little bit of Summer .. 
To make this card, all I did was swirl 5 different distress inks for the background..
mounted it onto black cardstock
Then, using the butterfly, and sentiment  from the KOM 5/17
 Free Your Dreams {kom 5/17}
 I stamped the image directly onto the background piece~
For the sentiment, I did emboss it with clear ep, 
As an afterthought, I used white acrylic paint , watered down a bit and flicked it onto the entire card 
(I kinda wish I had done that before I did my stamping) 
then tied the eyelash ribbon around the middle...

For my second card...
I used the KOM 7/17
 Glittering Eyes {kom 7/16}
I started out with kraft cardstock, and matching pattern paper from 
Papertrey Ink
I stamped the butterflies directly onto the pattern paper, and then clear embossed it
On a second piece of kraft cs, I stamped the sentiment, and clear embossed it as well
then I distressed the edges of the paper with matching ink.. (love doing that )
I had to think on this card for a long time.. 
the sentiment needed to be boardered and I just couldn't find anything that looked good....
so, when I get stuck, I start cleaning~ LOL~ never know what you'll find under that mess.. 
then I spotted my roll of burlap!! 
The sentiment is from Lilli Girl~ Link <<<   
 Lilli Girl

I sat back down, and started layering..
First I cut the burlap long enough to be seen..
 I bought some burlap flowers at Michael's and they always come in handy!! 
I cut  some leaves from a Sizzix die set
Glued down the leaves, then added the flowers!!
I love using ribbon! 
I had this espresso colored sheer ribbon from
 CTMH and it looked perfect..I did put a little curl in the ribbon ;)

If you look closely, you can see the word "love" that is in the stamp..
 I never noticed it until I stamped it!! 
That just made my day!
 It is so a hidden message you hope the recipient of the card notices, too.
The little blue bird is from a 3D sticker pack I've had a long time!!

I like to mention that the sweet basket weave coffee was a gift from Lisa Burton Bradford 

Well, that's it for me!! 
I hope we have given you some inspiration with our love for Unity stamps!!
