Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop!

Anya-Double-Stairstep-wm

Hi everyone,

Today is Club Anya’s Holiday Blog Hop, and I thought it was about time I signed up to participate in one of their customer blog hops,  after all I have tons of their stamps so why not!

The list of participating blogs is posted on the Club Anya blog so be sure to hop on over there so that you can hop around to all the other blogs that are participating in this hop, I am sure there are some amazing creations for you to see out there in blog land today.

To participate we had to create a holiday themed card that uses Anya or Ian stamps. I decided to use both Anya & Ian to create my card …. mine are digital stamps Miss Anya Autumn and My Guy Autumn.

I decided to make a Double Side Stair step card for today’s blog hop. I have seen lots of Side Stair step cards around the place and hadn’t gotten around to creating one even though I have made a few Stair step cards and recently I discovered what I am calling the Double Side Stair Step card … I am not sure if this is the official name for it, but as it has a side step on both sides it works for me.

Anya-Double-Stairstep2-wm Here is another pic of my card …. the Christmas tress and Santa hats are both brads. I attached the trees onto my card the normal way you attach brads, but I wanted to ensure that the hats were positioned in the correct place so I cut off the prongs and attached them to the heads using foam tape.

Well that is all for me … don’t forget to visit Club Anya’s blog so that you can continue on the hop.

Recipe:

Stamps: Miss Anya Autumn & My Guy Autumn Digital Stamps – The Greeting Farm

Paper: White; Red; Green; DP – Kaisercraft

Other: Black Ink; Modern Label Tag Punch & Die; Christmas Tree & Santa Hat Brads; Red Ribbon; Foam Tape; Copics
