I loved coloring the beautiful flowers on this stamp
Using two different pieces of cardstock, and changing up the main flower color, gave me exactly what I wanted.
The die set, comes with two word dies, too. 
Thanks, and Tea
Here's a link to  A Cup Of Thanks, Dies
I love that this die cuts the space in the handle.
It was VERY easy to line the die up, before cutting.
Plenty of room around the image too! I LOVE that!!

Studio Katia sells the most 
beautiful embellishments, too! 
I am kind of a sequins snob, 
and their sequins and jeweled crystals are so
 beautiful that I want them all!
 I used Gold sparkle crystals, and Sunny Topaz ..below is a link

Both of my cards we very easy to make, and will be mailed out Monday!
That's it for me  :)

December Coffee Loving Cradmakers DT Post

Hey there! What's brewin'?
Welcome back to Robyn's Nest!!

I sure hope you were able to join us for the Fall/Winter blog hop
at Coffee Loving Cardmakers! 
We had a blast! So many amazing cards were linked up! I saw a few of my friends link their cards up for the very first time! YAY! I love seeing my friends join in.
Crystal Minkler (my bestie) 
Jeanie Marie Hays, Joyce Verdon, Laura Jata, and Kim Klinkovsky to mention a few! 

The winners of my blog candy are
#4~ Billie A
#28 Shell B

Both of you can reach me on FB messenger, or email me

My card this month is by...yep, Unity Stamp Co!
It seems like I am always reaching for their stamps. Probably because they are always releasing new ones, and I am a member of their Kit of the Month..
This stamp set is not new though. But, it's seasonal, so it's like "new to me" each year
Joy To Go << Link 
I love it! Keeping this card simple, all I did was stamp the image and sentiment 
with Iridescent Ice holographic embossing powder from Stampin' UP!
Any brand will give you the same effect 
I'm pretty bummed that my snowflakes look like dirty smudges, though.. :( 
well, that's it for me this time!!

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!! 

Inky Hugs, Robyn

My teamie Kathy posted all her cards from the hop, and I thought I'd do the same! 
Thanks for looking. I posted these to Instagram
You can follow me there, too @  Robyn_nest_

Thanks for looking, and getting down this far!
