Ori Kami


How is your week going so far?  I am just popping in to post a few cards that I have made with a fantastic new set of stamps from Jen Rzasa and Tasnim Ahmed who have teamed up to form Altenew.  The first release from their new stamp company is just great - I have only got a few so far but will definitely be back for more :)

The set that I have been playing with is called Ori Kami and features origami style images:

Sorry again for the poor quality light :(
I paper pieced the elephant with some Studio Calico paper that I have had for a long time - I do like grey and yellow as a combination.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.
I sponged Squeezed Lemonade and Pumice Stone distress inks through a Memory Box mesh stencil in the shape of a heart for this card.
Given the distressed effect of the mesh heart I will join up with the current challenge at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Grunge.
I also used the sketch over at Less Is More for the layout of the butterfly card.
I hope you like these cards - they were fun to make :)
Enjoy the rest of your week!
