Friends of Unity~ Febuary 2021


Hey there!! Welcome to Robyn's Nest!! I hope you are doing well!
This months cue is Paper Piecing!! YAY!!
I absolutely LoveLOVE paper piecing!
 I know it's not for everyone, but I don't mind fussy cutting most things, so to me, it's no big deal. Plus, I love the result + + right?

For this card, I busted out my Kit of the Month from May 2019 called
I made a mini slimline card...actually, I've made 2 for this hop, but the other one is below..
A mini slimline card...This! This is THE (in my humble opinion) perfect size for most Angie's girls! I cannot believe how nice they have turned out for me. I bought the mini slimline die from Trinity Stamps last year. It was only a scalloped card front. But since then, the have set, with the envelope builder die too for one price. I believe you can still buy the scalloped one pictured above at Simon Says Stamp, last I checked
I'll link you to Trinity below
 Mini Slimline Card and Envelope Die Set

I really love how this card turned out. I bowed out the sentiment after embossing it with black.
I colored her up with a few Copic markers
Putty is my newest favorite Copic color to use. That's what I colored her skirt with
I used C-3 on her shirt...which is apparently drying out (See how smudged her shirt looks? That's because the tip was dry and I used it anyway (I liked it ;) Ha! I went out of lines here and there~that pesky, dry tip was hard to control~
 I stamped more of the balloons on vellum. I have some that has a swirly pattern on it... then fussy cut them out. Initially, they were for the balloons she's holding, but I didn't like it after I layered it over them, so I set them aside, until found a place to stick them.
My next card is from the same Kit of the Month
You're my kind of Jam!!
I love this!! I am making one of those "You're the Balm" chap-stick things from My Favorite Things, and I'll use that super cute apron shown here. I colored the trim to match. Sending this set to my favorite Aunty in Kissimmee! She collects all things strawberries, so every time I see a new strawberry stamp, or paper I have to buy it! GinaK had a nice paper pack. Not sure if she still sells it :/ 
But I used this pretty paper from *Queen and Company
I did paper piece the strawberries, too, but it's hard to tell.
 I colored my jam a bit too much like the flowers AND the strawberries~ oh well pssst, she won't even care ;) 

Next up, and my final card for this month is 

Another mini slimline card
I used
*Stampin Up Pool Party colored DSP
*Martha Stewart butterfly punches on pink vellum, 
then added a bit of *Stickles to their body. 
Yes, I totally forgot to add a center to the flower in her hair, LOL...need to fix that ;)
 Well, that' is it for this girl, and I'm the final stop in the hop!
