I've made 3 cards with one stamp set called 
Hot Coffee  << Link in red<< 
This is such a funny set! I love the snarky sentiments!
I also used their 
Coffee Cup Fri-dies << link here<<< 
I love these dies! This set of 3 dies allows so many possibilities as you will see on my cards.

For my first card, I used a scrap piece pf pattern paper, to cut the cup, and the word coffee.
I added some "steam" with a flourish stamp I have, and used versamark, and clear glittery embossing powder for texture. I added pink sheer ribbon, tied it into a bow. This card was super quick, and easy to make...

On my second card, I used 3 different Fall colors of SU! cardstock. 
I used a coffee bean embossing folder from Sizzix on the top layer
Stamped the sentiment onto a matching piece, and cut out  the small cup with coordinating cardstock. As you can see, the handle of these dies are cut out into a heart shape. So I added the little heart to match. Adding a couple Pretty Pink Posh sequins here and there..  

I am playing along with 2 challenges over at Cas-ual Fridays 
First is with Calling All Sistahs (link below)

and their Friday Challenge 

I made this next card for the challenges

My last card for the hop and my challenge entry is my favorite! 
I used a brick background stamp, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder on gray cardstock.
Cut the big cup from pink cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto the cup, then heat embossed. Added the sheer pink ribbon tied into a knot.

Well, I sure hop you're having fun hopping along with us this weekend!

I hope you arrived her from 

Up next after me is

Coffee Loving Cardmakers- October

Hey there, what's brewin'? 
Welcome back to Robyn's nest! 
Can you believe Halloween is in 2 weeks? 
I love to make Halloween cards, but hardly ever mail them out (so sad)
For this months card, I used more of my pattern paper for fast and simple cards.
I used Mug Life from The Ink Road Stamps 
I stamped the sentiment on green paper to match the pattern paper, and mounted it on black, then punched out some "drippy goo" from a Martha Stewart punch..
I stamped and fussy cut out the coffee cup, then glued it next to the sentiment. I have this green sequins that is on a string and decided to take a few off, then I cut some off the roll, and glued it under the sentiment. 
That's it for me this month! 
I hope you like this card :) 

Inky Hugs!!

Friends of Unity~ October Leaves

Hey there, and welcome back to Robyn's Nest!!
First off, I like to announce the winner of my giveaway for September!!
Please PM me (Robyn Jordan) on Facebook with your mailing address!!

Don't you just love Fall?? I do, so much!
As a  transplanted Floridian, from Baltimore,  I longed for Fall again.
 To see the trees change color.
To jump into, and kick up leaves we raked up into a pile!!
and tulips in the Spring...
When we decided to move to Georgia, I couldn't wait, because it was already Fall!
October 15th marks 22 years since we left Sarasota behind, and I have never want to live there again! Best move of my life....
ok..probably TMI, right?? LOL

I made 2 cards again this month, because, why not!! LOL
My first card is a coffee cup from
September 2018 ~KOM
I used Copics to color the leaf, and liquid snow on the marshmallows
Pink & Main Pumpkin Spice cs
Lawn Fawn stitched leaves, and for the sentiment, I used Pretty Pink Posh dies, and lastly,
some sheer pumpkin colored ribbon

For my second card, I used

I think she is the very definition of Fall in the
 Angie's Girls collection

 Colored with Copics, and highlighted with chalks
I love how she turned out!!

I sure hope you've enjoyed this months blog hop!!
