Ahoy Matey!

Hi there! It's the final day of the new release sneak peaks for The Greeting Farm! I am thrilled to show you Pirate Anya and Pirate Ian from the new set Matey! Aren't they FANTASTIC!?! I loved these guys so much I had to make a card using each one, and I am in the middle of working on another one right now (well, until I stopped to post to my blog!) Hopefully I'll have it finished in time to show you at tonight's Virtual Stamping Luau at the Club Anya PCP page (8 PM CST). For more details, you can check out the Club Anya blog.

My first card, made with Pirate Anya uses DP from Creative Imaginations. I cut the treasure chest using my Cricut machine and the Paper Doll cartridge. It is colored with Copics and a gold leafing pen and layered on a piece of cardstock that is covered with different jewel colored seed beads and gold stickles. She is colored with Copics:


My second card, using Pirate Ian (isn't he just the cutest!?) also has DP from Creative Imaginations. The skull and crossbones for the Jolly Roger are cut with my Cricut and the Indie Art cartridge. Ian is colored with Copics:

Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hat and Boots: E21,E25,E27,E29
Vest and Bandana: R24,R27,R29
Hair: E53,E55,E57
Shirt: C1,C3

These cuties (along with the other new releases - Rain, Snow, Shine ; Hula Anya; and Surfer Ian) will be available after midnight tonight at The Greeting Farm!

If you haven't already had a chance to see what the other DT members have made with this set, you should head over to their blogs to have a look! They never fail to amaze me with their talent and creativity!

Traci these are soooo much fun. How can Marie keep making these stamps cuter and cuter. My wallet is going to be broke! Can I borrow some of that treasure Pirate Anya has? Oh and the hat on Pirate Ian looks like it could be real leather. Fabulous coloring doll.
