First Ever Anya/Ian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the first offical Blog hop for Anya and Ian (The Greeting Farm/Club Anya). If by chance you are not familiar with these two, head on over to THIS LINK and check these cuties out. New stamps will be released this evening at 10PM CST after the Hop. You are not going to wanna miss the new stamps out of Anya and Ian...THEY ARE TO DIE FOR lol.

If you weren't aware of the hop and would like to see the other wonderful and talented participants invloved, please head on over to Club Anya and there will be a list of all the blog hop participants that you can follow. This way you can start at the beginning and not miss any of the amazing talents that will be on display!

I myself am new to Anya's/Ian's, and truthfully stamping in general lol. I just started stamping in February of this year, never touched a stamp prior to that point (wow I was missing a lot lol). I have to say this line is one of my fav of all stamps. I know many of you feel the same. So, without further ado here is what I created for todays Hop....


I love Princess Anya the most! She is so pretty and she sure does sparkle lol. I stayed with a simple layout, as I wanted her to be the focal point on this card.

Some details on the card:
- She was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Oderless Mineral Spirits.
- The sentimanet is chipboard which I painted white then stamped with 'you simply sparkle' (from the spunky princess set/Unity) and heat embossed it with clear EP. It looks so sparkly up close, hard to tell in the photo.
-I added a lil bling to her crown and wand. Both have Sugar Coating (aka glitter) from Doodlebug Designs on it. BLING BLING :) We had to make her a REAL princess and a real princess has Bling lol.
- I sponged around her with Momento Dew Drop Ink to make her 'glow'.
- I finally added a clip to hold on the sentiment tag. I have been obssesed with these clips lately, so don't be suprised to see them on a lot more of my designs this week. It's the 'IN' item for me this week lol. Here is a close up of all the details.....


Thank you so much for stoping by my blog today, I always love new and returning guests. I was honored to be part of this Hop this evening. Please feel free to leave a comment (I'm new so I need friends ..hehehehe - teasing). I love comments cuz I love to hear what you all think! Have a great day and enjoy the rest of your hop!

Dee said...

YOU GUYS ARE SO SWEEEEEEEET ...each and every one of you. I even had tears reading the praises I got here tonight (silly I know lol). It's true I just started and I never even stamped anything ever before seriously. I think I tried for fun maybe once years ago and it was for a scrapbook (letters) not to even be colored in. It was mess lol, I got ink all over my hands, my shirt, my face!!! I'm sure it was in my hair too lol. I just walked away. Then I found SCS two months back and I just had to try. So many of you have inspired me and made this new found love of mine so enjoyable. HUGZ and KISSES to you all!!!
