Coffee Loving Cardmakers~ National Iced Tea Day 2021

Hey there!! Welcome to Robyn's Nest!! 
Happy National Iced Tea Day!!
I hope you are having a good day so far! 
The design team over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers are hopping with our teamie Dana today to celebrate!!
**Side Note**
If you come to my house, you will always be asked if you want some sweet tea.
 I make gallons of this liquid gold every week. 
We live in the south and you'd probably find it very hard to find a fridge without a gallon or two!! 
(Channeling my inner Paula Dean accent...Ya'll" )
Here's how I was inspired!! 
For my card, I used Unity Stamp Company, who are Super Sponsors of our fun Blog Hops!
I used a stamp from one of their Kit of the Month's _ have you ever seen the size of those KOM's?
 What an great value!! 
Look how BIG they are, too..the stamp I used is at the bottom, left
Sweetness, Miracles & Wishes {kom 5/19}

I stamped this image onto Papertrey Ink white card stock
Using a few Copic markers, I colored it up!
I colored the lemons with Y-00 & Y-15
and used the following for the sweet tea- E-00 & E02
I used this amazing frame fro Impression Obsession to cut out some textured vellum from Stampin Up. 
Then choosing some Design Series Paper from my stash, I simply cut to fit.
The sentiment I used is my absolute favorite Southern Sayings from Paper Sweeties called 
Lastly, I used some of my gorgeous sheer ribbon from Close to My Heart, I tied a pretty bow

I love how it turned out!!

Did you arrive here from Erin??

I hope you are enjoying your favorite beverage today, even if you aren't a sweet iced tea fan
Inky Hugs, Robyn

Friends of Unity Blog Hop June 2021~ Masculine


Hey there!! Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!!
Today the team is hopping with a new theme~ 
A lot of us struggle with masculine cards.
I hope you find some inspiration this month!! 
To start this month off I have chosen this motorcycle from June 2018 Kit of the month

For this card I only did embossing.
No coloring

I embossed the motorcycle in gold and the sentiment in black
I used my Tim Holtz paper shredding tool on the edges and some SU DSP
A bit of black paint splatters (looks like an oil spill) 😀

Using PTI kraft paper, and Versamark black ink and more black embossing powder, I again, did not have to color this one
 Like last month, I love using black on kraft for a clean, simple look 
I used a few stamp sets here...
The sentiment "You and Me" is from the January 2020 
The camper and sunshine are from (link below)
I used Kat Scrappiness mini slimline embossed edge for the main layer
Here's a link to KS and all her amazing Mini Slimline products

I plucked the branch out of a different KOTM and will post when I find THAT kit LOL 

The tire swing is from Rubbernecker
~I'm giving this last card to my husband
We will celebrate 37 years of marriage, June 17th

I sure hope you had fun with us this month
