Hi Everyone! Are you ready to see some sneak peaks of the new Anya's (and Ian's, too, starting tomorrow!)? I love, love, love all of the new stamps The Greeting Farm is releasing on the 15th! I was so excited when I saw this one in particular! My daughter is in love with the idea of Hawaii! She's never been (yet! We were trying to plan a trip for last Christmas and things just didn't work out!) Her favorite music is by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole and she talks about going to Hawaii all of the time! She fell in love with this stamp as soon as I showed it to her. In fact, at school last week all of her class made Mother's Day cards for their mom's and on hers she drew her version of this stamp (and tomorrow's sneak peak!) because she didn't have the stamps there to stamp with!

This new stamp is called Hula Anya! Isn't she adorable!? I used my Cricut to cut out a Palm tree and some coconuts (it's from the Paper Doll cartridge. That one has a lot more than is shown on the box!) The DP is K&Company and I used Pink Passion SU card stock. Anya has Prima's over the stamped flowers for extra texture. I colored everything with Copics:

Skin: R00,E11,E13, R81
Hair: C3,C5,C7,C9
Tree (and Skirt): YG23,YG25,YG17,E25,E27,E29
Flowers and Top: R81,R83,R85,YR21,YR14,YR16,Y04,Y08,BG02,BG05

All of the Club Anya DT will be having sneak peaks of these cute new stamps through Thursday and then on Thursday night (before they are released!) we are having a Virtual Stamp night! (You can get all of the details at THIS Club Anya post!)

Okay Traci, You are going to have to do a tutorial on how you do hair, espcially black. That is the hardest hair color to pull off I think and you do it so perfectly. I feel like I need a pina colada now. Anyone want to join me?
