Club Anya Blog Hop - Welcome!

I have several pictures so please make sure to scroll all the way to the end of the post.

DOWN BY THE SEA

I know this doesn't look like an Anya project on the outside but just hold on to your seahorses and take a look inside.....




When the lid is removed - POOF!
Anya is swimming with the fishes. The images are suspended on acetate strips that pop out of the box when the lid is removed. The lady from whom I got the tutorial has THE most amazing boxes. She was even comissioned to make one for the queen. Now THAT is talent. Check out her BLOG.
I got the fish in a set from TGF because I liked the frog but the little fish swam his way right into my heart.
















This is what it sounds like when the doves cry....






This was supposed to be an entry in the club anya rocker contest but I didn't finish in time. Since I had it half done I thought it would be good for the blog hop. I love Prince - IMHO some of the best dance music of that era. Who among us can stop their booties from shakin to 1999?

I used the two pics as inspiration for a stair step card. Prince is rockin with Wendy as his backup. I wanted to put in Lisa too but didn't have time. Yes, that is my double helix stamp that I used for the stairs (just ignore the base pairs). I combined Ian and Anya for my man Prince and added a few jheri curls. I also made a guitar by shaping anya's to look like his (made out of shrink plastic of course).

SWIMMIN WITH THE FISHES PART TWO

I have to admit that this looks far worse in person than it does on the picture so you know its bad. But for all the time that went into it, I was determined to put it on the blog. Whatever you do, DO NOT click on a closeup.
I wanted a serene, water scene, and I pretty much got a mess.
Using stazon, I tried stamping mermaid anya onto a glass vase. That part worked really well and then everything went straight down hill from there. It is safe to say I will never work as a glass decorator. To top it off the very last thing I did was put a huge fingerprint right on anya's sweet little face. If you have this type of talent I think this would be a cute idea for a girl's room.

I stamped a couple of my favorite fishes around the vase to keep anya company.
HEY, I told you not to click for a closeup and you did it anyway didn't you;}!













HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS GIFT ISN'T FOR SOMEONE EXPECTING A BABY GIRL?

(Hint - Nothing to do with Dress up Ian or the colors, it has to do with the chocolate inside the box).

I thought this would be a cute, personal gift for someone who is expecting. A little sumthin sumthin for the one doing all the work. If you have seen my blog you know I LOVE shrinkies so I had to do one for the blog hop. I used the SCS acetate box tutorial and the Dress up Ian/Anya set for this project.



I think those teeny little outfits are adorable.

So.....did you figure it out?
The chocolate has nuts (tee hee).










A Pink Tink
I know this isn't anya/ian but a request was made for a PINK shrink fairy and I thought it would be a good time to post her. I got the cupcake at a place called the The Sweet House Bake Shop in Mars, Pa (yes I said Mars, didn't know I lived that close to martians did you?). They have amazingly unique and scrumptious stuff. This cupcake didn't last more than a few seconds after the picture was taken mmmmmmm.

If you have hung with me through all this you deserve a prize. I have a coveted Elf Anya up for grabs. Just leave a comment tonight and I will put all the names in a hat and have one of my kids pick. Stop back tomorrow to find out if you won. I hope you enjoyed yourself and thanks bunches for bloppin by (get it? BLog hOPPIN, I crack myself up;}).

stephanne said...

Kim,
Okay, now that I've done a significant amount of gawking, I can move along to leaving evidence that I was here. Holy geeze, these creations are amazing. My eyes popped out of my head when I saw your Prince card, or I guess that was the NPG era, right? So to be fair, your Prince and the New Power Generation creation just knocked my socks off!! Really, really neat.
Stephanne

Barb said...
