The Greeting Farm's "Awareness Anya" Sneak Peek

I am thrilled to have been invited to be part of the Greeting Farm's "Premiere Guest Design Team" to help them kick of their very first release of 2013!  

A whopping FIVE new stamps will be released on January 1st!  If you missed my sneak peek of Lovey Bean from the other  day, you can click HERE to see it!  

Today I am helping to show off the soon to be released "Awareness Anya!"  
This image is great because you can color up to any way you'd like to support any cause!
I have a couple of cards to share with you.

First up is a card I made for Colon Cancer Awareness. An old friend of mine from high school has a dark blue ribbon with her mom's name and date of death as her avatar on Facebook.  I've been thinking of her lately because I know the Holidays make you miss those we've lost all the more.  So, here is a card I made with my old friend Robin in mind.


I colored the image with copics. I paired some Bazzill Card Shoppe peanut cluster and licorice twist CS with some PP from the Echo Park For the Record 2 Documented 6x6 paper pad.  I added some black twill ribbon, a blue button from my stash, and some black hemp cord to embellish.

skin - E21, E00, E000
cheeks - R20, R30
hair - E19, E18, E08, E02
ribbon - B 26, B24, B23
dress - B23, B21
boots - C1

For my second card, I colored Anya up for Alzheimer's Awareness.  As a Social Worker on a geriatric psych unit, I have seen so many people affected by this disease.


This time I paired some Bazzill Card Shoppe sour lemon and gummy bear CS with some PP from the Doodlebug Designs Hello Spring 6x6 paper pad.  I printed the sentiment from my computer. I used the PTI double ended banner die and I did some fussy cutting so I could pop Anya up with foam dimensionals and layer her over the banners.  

skin - E21, E00, E000
cheeks - R20, R30
hair - E37, E35, E53, E51
ribbon - BV17, BV13, BV11
dress - BV02, BV01, BV00
boots - C1

  10. Hi Kim, Don't let the other stamps know, but I think Awareness Anya is my favorite this time. She is so cute and I love that littel bob hairstyle of hers. :O) I really think both your cards are just fantastic. I did not know that alzheimer's has a ribbon as well. My Mother-in-law has that terrible diease and I can not begin to imagine how hard you must work everyday. Anyway, I wanted to stop by and tell you that I think your coloring is fantastic. I really love your girl's hair on your second card and I am so going to give your color combo a go. lol... I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Lisa G
