Miss Anya and My Guy Ian

Good afternoon all! For today I wanted to share with you these two fun cards I created for the wonderful Miss Gabby’s Miss Anya and My Guy Ian’s swap! I have a pretty large collection of stamps from The Greeting Farm, in fact I think I need to order some more after seeing their newest release, but a of now I am being ‘good’ and not ordering anything. When Gabby posted this swap I totally wanted to play along, in fact I had yet to ink up the My Guy Ian set so that had to be remedied! I tried to make his card sort of manly, so I stuck with a grey and maroon color combination plus I pulled out my diamond plate embossing folder to make it even more ‘manly’. I had no idea how to finish this card though, I finally decided that I would create an overlapping of satin ribbon and offset the main image in the upper right corner.

For my second spot I used Rain Miss Anya image from the set Rain Snow Shine. I think this may be one of my favorite Miss Anya’s in fact after I made this card I love this stamp even more. You know I have been on a bit of a ‘where is spring’ kick and this card is just perfect for spring! I used yellows and blues to create this super fun and cute Rainy day card! I also used my Swiss Dots embossing folder for the background on this card to go with the dots in her little umbrella. After I finished all the cards for the swap I realized that I didn’t even use any decorative paper, and that never seems to happen anymore! I do hope you liked both cards for today; I had a lot of fun with them!
