Coffee Loving Cardmakers Ellen Hutson~ National Coffee Day 2021

Hey there, what's brewin'?
Happy National Coffee Day

We have been celebrating National Coffee WEEK since September 22nd, featuring one Super Sponsor per day

Today, the last day, we have Sponsor

Ellen Hutson

Ellen is having TWO giveaways 

This sweet Bear Cozy 

How cute is this die set?? So many possibilities!!! 
When I cut out my first piece, I saw it could be a frog...
 What do you think??
I have 2 sisters that are "into" frogs...they have them scattered all over their home. that's probably why those bumps turned into eyes for me Ha!
 I gave her eyelashes
She looked more like a frog before I wrapped her around the cup
I made everything from paper with the dies provided in the kit (except the mouth)
When I got to the mouth, I wasn't all that happy with it...I liked the boy frogs mouth better
but, I know my sister will love it.
It's so fast, and easy enough to make them, that I am sending her a few extra to give away, too
Below is the other (darker) frog


Here's a link to Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog where all the fun is happening!!!

Friends of Unity September 2021

 Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!

This month's cue is a color challenge!
Love this fabulous combination

We'll have an album in the Unity Show & Tell group on Facebook where you can enter a card or other paper craft  project using our color palette above
Sage~ white~~ Kraft

It will run from September 4th-30th. Share your card and be sure to add it to the album. There will be a lucky prize winner who will receive a $25 gift card.
Before we get started, I want to announce the winner of my BIG giveaway for August 2021
After reading all the comments, I put the number into
Amy Williams
I started out by using this new Uniquely Unity set, Season Of Inspiration
2 gorgeous pumpkins and 2 sentiments in this kit~ perfect for Fall/September cards

Super easy card!
I stamped on PTI kraft card stock with white ink, then heat embossed with white as well

I used an older Sizzix die to cut the image out 

I added it to the sage mat then tied some matching jute into a bow
After mounting it to my card base, I used Gina Marie enamel dots to finish it off

I had some extra time and made a second card for the hop 

This card is just a combination of elements I cut out or had out looking for the right color combo~
This is a mini slimline card ~
I used sage cardstock, and kraft, both from Papertrey Ink (PTI) 
I stamped the oak leaf from the August 2021 Kit of the Month onto a scrap piece of pattern paper from PTI (fussy cute it out)... and used that beautiful "give thanks" from the Uniquely Unity August 2021~ Stamped, embossed, and fussy cut)
The matching bow is also ribbon from PTI...
More of those enamel dots 😍  

I hope you've enjoyed this months hop!!
