HAPPY ANYAversary BLOG HOPPIN' BASH!!!


I couldn't miss Anya's birthday, so I decided to participate in the Happy Anyaversary Blog Hoppin Bash. To see a list of all participants, please visit the Club Anya Blog or The Greeting Farm Blog. I got my first Anya's in April, and have added to my collection a few times since. All four of my kids love Anya and Ian, so they enjoy sitting alongside me and making their own creations.

Here is my Happy Birthday Card using Space Ian. This card was made for my son Trevor. I always tell him I love him to the moon, so this image was very fitting.


I wanted to do a space type scene, so I started with a base of cardstock in Night of Navy, added a layer of Brushed Silver and then another layer of Night of Navy with stars stamped in Silver ink. I cut the moon from Sahara Sand cardstock, embossed it with the Dots & Spots embossing folder and then sponged White craft ink over the top. Space Ian was colored in with copics and then cut out to stand on the moon. I hand wrote the sentiment since I don't have any similar stamps.


I carried the space theme to the inside with a few punched stars, but forgot to take a picture of it before we wrote inside it.

Card Recipe~ all items SU unless indicated
Stamps: Space Ian ~ The Greeting Farm; Background Basics; Sentiment ~ handwritten
Ink/Coloring: Encore Silver; Memento Tuxedo Black; White Craft; Copics (E00, E11, R20, Y21, Y23, Y28, B34, B37, B39, R29, N0, N2, N4, N6); Marvy Metallic Silver Gel Pen

Embellishments:

I also wanted to do an Anya Birthday card, but unfortunately didn't get around to finishing it in time....
