Thursday This and That...

I told you last week about the cards I made but then.......Oh you know.....!!!

Cards have all been delivered now so I can show you those.
First a new baby card!
I coloured in the socks, but everything else on the washing line is paper pieced! The stamp is an old one.
The flowers were punched out of the same papers that the clothes were cut from.

I would like to enter at 
Stamping Sensations - In My Garden (not that this line of baby clothes is actually in my garden but I would love it if it was!)

Next came a new Grandparents card
 I kept this simple and I know that the new Grandma loves Zinski stamps!
Next came a card for our great nephew!
I used Paper Artsy Elenazinski stamps here too!
He loves monsters etc and loved this card - and got the humour too!
I would like to enter this card at 
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes

Finally another page for Art Journal Journey.
I used a gelli print that I made when I took part in the Gelliplate challenge organised by Brigit Koopsen.
It was made by spraying inks on my gelliplate and placing on some torn paper towel in strips.
I added stamping using some Paper Artsy Hotpicks, a Woodware quote and some doodling!

Thanks for looking, Chris

You have been a really creative roll Chris. I've enjoyed seeing all your journal pages this month. It's been a good challenge. I can't believe this month is almost over-where did it go to? Hope you are enjoying not too hot weather. Hugs-Erika

I think your cards are simply wonderful. I love how they care both creative and mailable.

Your art journal page is fabulous. I wish now I had taken that gelli plate challenge. Your latest entry is proof you make great art regardless of the challenge. You are such a great host this month and I am in total awe of the wonderful art you have shared with us and how you have taken your hosting skills so seriously. You have certainly made great art for us and we are proud that you are hosting Art Journal Journey this month.

Just catching up, Chris - you've been BUSY! I love this paper towel effect. I'm really envious I missed that challenge - I've given up on my Gelli plate for now, but your samples have really been inspiring me to try again!

Love the colours, too - maybe I should try spraying it...h'mm!

Such a beautiful display of cards. I love how you used patterned paper so flawlessly in the designs. Lovely idea of die cutting floral dies from it. I love all three cards, the new baby one the most. Thank you so much for joining us on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. xx Ankita
