Club Anya "Blog Hoppin' Bash!

This is my very first time participating in a blog hop and what better way to get my feet wet than to particiapte in the First Ever Club Anya Blog Hoppin' Bash. To see a list of all participants, please visit the Club Anya Blog.

When I saw The Greeting Farm Stamps I absolutely fell in love with their adorable images. Anya, Ian, the Fairies, the animals....they are all so cute, who could resist!?! I got my first order early this month, my second order on Monday, and, well, let's just say that with a brand new release tonight at 10:00 pm, my third order may not be far off ;)



For this card I picked Rockstar Anya. I stamped Anya onto Gina K Luxury White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her in with my copics (E00, E11, R20, R81, R83, R85, R89, C1, C3) and then cut her out. To add some sparkle to Anya, I used silver glitter glue (Duncan) on her headband and guitar. I wanted it to look like Anya was on a stage, so I added two ovals (SU punch) before placing her on the polka dotted paper (layered with SU Basic Black and Pretty in Pink). Since I wanted this card to have a lot of bling, I used DCWV "All Dressed Up" papers, a Metal rimmed tag with a silver star brad, and even stamped the words (Sudio G) in Encore Metallic Silver ink. The finishing touch on this card is the leather trim with the silver eyelets (Walmart ~ and yes, it came with the eyelets already in it) .



Since I made an Anya Card, I also had to make one of Ian. I stamped Skater Ian on Gina K Luxury White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him in with my copics (E00, R20, Y23, Y26, G82, G85, B32, B34, B39). I added a layer of Garden Green and Chocolate Chip (SU) to the back. For the card base I chose Really Rust (SU) layered with a fun patterned paper from DCWV. The sentiment is from SU's stamp set So Cool, which was stamped in Really Rust and layered on Chocolate Chip (SU). For embellishments, I chose to use stars (SU punches) cut from the same colors I used on the card. The large star has a vintage button with twine through it and I also added twine in place of ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my cards and have fun hoppin' along.
