STAMP HIGHLIGHT : ORIGAMI

We have Origami as our Stamp Highlight today. The art of paper folding has been an all time favorite activity for me when I was a child. Now that I'm an adult, I still enjoy folding little animals for my kids. We now can have the art of origami without the folding!




Let's take a look at what our Design Team have folded up for us!

Elena created a graphic valentine with a striped angled panel frame. Her origami animal looks perfectly foxy in those colors.


Emily watercolored the Origami swans and masked off the sentiment so it stamped around the swans and along the edge of the waves. Adding silver stars from Confetti - Creative Cuts complements the sentiment perfectly. Emily also used the Landscape Trio and Femme Frames - Creative Cuts to create her scene.


Geralyn created a cute and simple card using the Origami set. To mimic the sketchy letters of the sentiment, she colored in the origami cranes with pencil crayons. A little foam adhesive behind them adds dimension.


Jenn created a small card by stamping the sketchy sentiment onto a pre-printed diecut and then popping up the festive polka-dotted origami cat.


JJ went wild with the fussy cutting and created a string of lucky origami cranes! Each crane is stamped on different patterned paper and strung together on gold twine.






Laura created a tag using the Embellished Tag die. She stamped the origami fox and colored it in with Copics. Then she added a little polka dotted tag behind for a little pop of color.


 Nichol stamped the Origami image three times and cut it two into additional pieces to layer on top of the original image to give the illusion of depth and dimension. She also stamped a scene for the image using Sunny Skies as the background, die cut the waves using the Landscape Trio dies and stamped them with the polka dots from Basic Borders. She finished the card by stamping the greeting and adding three Origami hearts stamped onto red cardstock, cut out and embellished with Glossy Accents.





Leave it to Kathy Racoosin to think outside the box! Love the frame within a frame look she created... and you have got to check out her butterfly pin board!
