Friends of Unity December 2020

Hey there!! 
Welcome to Robyn's Nest 
Well, by now, you know that we are celebrating our 3rd anniversary of the Friends of Unity Blog Hop! It really is hard to believe all that has happened in the last 3 years, but we have enjoyed having all of our regulars with us for the wild ride, that started by loving a certain stamp company!!
Id like to do a little shout out of my top 10 commenters!!

Thank you ladies for your continuous support of our hop!!
Ok, onto the rest of the hop!!
Our cue this month is
 My Favorite Things...

For this card I used 

The sentiment is heat embossed in gold
I used a swirly embossing folder from Darice
and Specturm Noir clear shimmer pen over the glass and stem
I tied a knot (idea from Crystal M. ) from some plaid ribbon and added it for more color
The sentiment that comes with this set was too big for the front of this card, so I stamped it on vellum in red and heat embossed it with Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin' Up
 I did add a bit of color to the glass with Copic R0000
and E0000 for the bubbly ;)  

 Thanks for hanging to the end!!
I am having a few giveaways this time so be sure to leave a comment along the way to be entered!

  1. I had not seen that stamp set before. Very nice! I like your addition of the ribbon to add color and the smart way you added the sentiment. This card captures a bit of holiday cheer so well. Happy Anniversary!!

  2. Gorgeous card, Robyn! Love the CAS style and I really love that beautiful wine glass... I must find mine and play! Thanks for the stunning inspiration! Happy Anniversary my friend!

  3. A fabulous card, I love the bow for the finishing touch!

    1. And thank you for the shout out, I love your creativity.

  5. Thanks for sharing this lovely card. I love Tierra's images, but I don't own this stamp set, yet. (...Adds to wish list!).

  6. A very classy card, Robyn. And I love this image for New Year's cards. The sparkle is so pretty and yes, that bow is darling and finishes it off nicely for a bit of color. (And thanks for the shout out! I love all the Unity Girls & admire the inspiration). ;-)

  7. AWWWWWWWWW Robyn you are so sweet for mentioning me as one of your biggest fans! Your card is just so precious too!

  8. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    friend! Merry Christmas.

  10. You know it that I'm a top fan of my favorite blog hop! Even though my commenting isn't working right lately!! Love your card Robyn and the hop! Vannessa Osbourn

  11. Very neat!!! What a nice card! I was thinking a glass of wine would be good right about

  12. Lovely card Robyn! So elegant and festive! 💕

  13. I love this image. I have it and it is a favorite. I love how you chose a few colors and mounted on the textured background. The bow is a perfect embellishment. Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. Pretty card! I love the idea of the ribbon around the stem!

  15. Such a beautiful card! I would never have thought to put a ribbon on the stem. You’re so creative!

  16. This is awesome! I love this stamp and your layout! Thank you for the shout out too!

  17. Happy Anniversary Robyn! I love the elegance of this card. It is quite lovely my friend. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  18. I like your pretty card design.

  19. Pretty layering and design on your card!
    Happy to see that I'm one of your top commenters! I always enjoy your cards!

  20. Lovely design to celebrate the holidays, the plaid knot is the perfect finishing touch!

  21. Love your card! It is a perfect stamp for all my crafty, wine drinking friends!! The knotted ribbon is just the perfect detail to add - I'll have to remember that for my own cards!

  22. Another great card! I really love the added ribbon on the stem... the perfect touch! (And here's another stamp for my wishlist! LOL)

  23. I absolutely love your card using cheers by Tierra Jackson. The ribbon and the stem adds an extra added Dimension to the card. The only thing different I would have done is I would have used glossy accents on the glass part to make it look more shiny as if it was a glass. Amazing hap and great inspiration. Stay safe.

  24. Happy Anniversary! Beautiful card. Love the b/w and just a touch of color. Great design. Thanks for the inspiration! Happy Holidays!

  25. Cheers to you on this wonderful Anniversary... many more. I love how you colored this glass. The pen sparkle looks very realistic. Oooo and bubbles make a party! The bow and sentiment add that perfect pop. Love this card. This was fun again... Merry Christmas!!

  26. How have I never seen that stamp set before?! This would make a wonderful anniversary or New Years card as well as for Christmas. I love the way you left it partially uncolored, with the pop of red for the bow and cherries. The shimmer is such a pretty touch. Have a wonderful holiday season and stay well!

  27. So pretty, and I'll bet it really shines in person. Love that you stamped the sentiment on vellum and added that bow for color. I'll have to remember to do that for my New Year cards. Happy holidays to you!

  28. Thank you for sharing this beautiful card and how-to info!! I love it!!!

  29. Beautiful card. I was not familiar with this stamp set. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Happy New Year!
