I am using a Freebie by Trinity from our hop back in 2019..
.link below 

For this card, I printed out the image and sized it to fit my card.
Then, all I had to do was a bit of coloring on the cups..I used my white Posca Marker pen (a new to me discovery) ...The heart paper is from Doodlebugs
I tied some thin jute from PTI around it, then cut a little tag with the same paper!
Brown Gift Card Holder

For this card, I watched a Youtube video by Ashley Hughes
YouTube Video
For This shape card I used Trinity Stamps Summertime Sips die
The bottom lifts up to the sentiment inside. It could also hold a gift card, too...
The bow keeps this one closed, but slides off like a belly band.

Blue Faux Shaker Crad

I used a dotted stencil and some paste.
Then again with the Summertime Sips die
I added clear card stock over the top for a faux shaker look. I absolutely love this die set. I love the domed lid and the straw. So many options 


 Another card with Summertime Sips

This time I use some yellows and greens. I did do some color blending with 2 Oxides and Trinity's amazing blending brushes!!

Did I mention the flowers are from Pink & Main?

 I hope you're having fun Hopping with us!

I love how fast this mini slimline card came together
I first printed the image and sentiment together~
as you can see, I just made it with the scalloped die (from Trinity Stamps)
Then I added some color to the cup with a few Copic markers.
What you cannot see very well (because I covered it up) is the pretty shinny paper under the top layer. So I cut out the presents from the paper and added them to the right side of the card front.
AND, that was it.
It was fun and easy

Friends of Unity April 2021~ Birds and Bees


Hey there everyone!!
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
It's the first full weekend of the month and time for another FOU blog hop!
If you hopped with us last month, then you know I have 2 giveaways up for grabs!!
I used to select the winners! 
#1 Carla from Utah
#10 Sue D
Please email me at 
Subject~ FOU Winner
I'll need your mailing address, please
Carla, I have yours 😍
Isn't this the cutest???!!

 For this sweet card, I used the bird from the Kit of the Month April 2017 ~ "be my bird"
 I stamped him with Memento black and colored him with a few Copics in a flicking motion to resemble feathers...I'm ok with how he turned out, but, it could have been better..then I fussy cut the entire image. (Yes, it took a good while to do 💪)
 I used pop dots to adhere him to this piece of card stock I had already cut out (Sizzix dies I think)
 The sentiment is from ______ I have no idea which kit I grabbed it from...but, when I figure it out, I will jump back here and add that info for you...sorry, but I do this A LOT!!
 I have a bowl of stamps that need to go back into their kit.
 I have started writing on the backing of that stamp, which kit I got it from...
This card is a 4 1/4 X 4 1/4. A good size for this guy I think.
Next up is a little fun!!! 


I stamped the flamingo from the Kit of the Month July 2013~"stand tall"~ in Tim Holtz's newest color
 Kitsch flamingo, and picked raspberry..., then used clear embossing powder!! 
SO cute!! 
The frame is from Impression Obsession, and the flowers are from Prima.
 I love using Gina Marie enamel dots, and scatter them on my cards, and I think they are still around $3.00 a sheet. 💖
OK, then...that's it from me this month!! 
Thanks for getting all the way to the end!!!
