Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Blog Hop 2020

Hey There!! 
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
Well, it's the final day of the CLC blog hop!
I sure hope you had a chance to link something up and play along with us! Can you believe all those amazing coffee cards?? OMGoodness! Inspiration for years!!!
I am back today to share my last card using Super Sponsor Three Room Studio~ "Let's Hygge" Stamp set <<Link

I must admit that the only way I saw this chair, was paper pieced. I love this set and had to have it for the Hop!! I am really liking scene building here lately, and this set give you plenty to "decorate" the room. Throw pillows, and basket with snugly blanket throws inside!
 Let's not forget that warm cuppa!! 
I stamped the image on pattern paper, then carefully cut it out, then glued it on top of the stamped and colored image, then fussy cut it all out. I should have knocked down those white edges I left, but, sadly, I didn't notice them as much as I do now... 😖
I stamped (more than a few) throw pillows,on matching colored card stock and fussy cut them out
  For the basket, I  colored it with Copics to match the pattern paper (from Papertrey Ink)
That's all there is to it! 
Such a relaxing set to have for any occasion, really.

Hey there!!
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
I am so glad you are here for our monthly blog hop!!

***Announcing the winner of last months Hop...
Karen Ladd!!
Please send me your address in an email to
subject FOU Winner
if anyone knows Karen, could you let her know :)

Onto my card...
This months cue is Favorite Angie Girl or Guy!!
Well that's difficult!!
I love them all. I do, however, have my favs :) and I have narrowed it down to 6... 😏
I'm sure by now you have heard the news that
 Angie Blom and USCo have separated.
I know 😭
I can say with all honesty, I will miss Angie Blom's Unity stamps!
I do love digital stamping, and will follow Angie wherever she goes!! 💛
I wish her well 

Onto my card for this month...
Now, don't be too jealous, but I have the highly coveted March 2015 Kit of the Month!!
So lucky!! I bought it before they removed it.
 I am using the Angie girl from that kit!!
Sorry, the picture looks rough :/ 
Pretty In Pink

I am so happy with how she turned out!
At first, I was afraid I had overworked her hair, but the pictures looked ok, so I went with it
I used Copics to color her, and a die from Papertrey Ink to cut out the finished image..glued her onto  pink card stock, then found a matching piece of pattern paper
I used rectangle dies I bought from Elizabeth Craft back in the Fall.
The ribbon is from Close to my Heart, and the sweet little flower is from Jolee's
