And here's a card from the same time period, I made this for my parents when they visited and gave them a kokeshi doll too. So I pulled these two out of the archives and I was absolutely SURE I had made at least one more card with this stamp set, I remembered it quite vividly so I just spent 15 minutes looking for the picture of it in my Splitcoast gallery only to find out that for the card in question, I used a different Asian-themed stamp set. *sheepish grin* So that's it for the flashback part, let's see some new stuff!
This card was the combination of three different challenges, starting with the latest from CAS(E) This Sketch:
I turned the sketch on its side, but I kept my card CAS because it's only two layers of white cardstock and the strips behind the oval are stamped red lanterns. Speaking of red, the Retro Rubber Challenge this week is a color combination:
So for Retro Rubber-ness, I've had Gifts from the Orient since 2008, and I got Rough Type when it was first released in 2010. Both well over a year old, though that alphabet never has time to get dusty in my house ;)
Anyway, just one more challenge, the theme at the Male Room:
Yep, I used pink on a dude card. Granted, not a lot of pink, but I did use pink :) I'm sending this card to my dad because it's punny and he appreciates a good pun. "Hai" sounds like "hi" but means yes in Japanese (or if you want to get more nit-picky, it's more like "I acknowledge what you're saying" rather than "I agree with you") but it just made me giggle a bit when I thought of it and yep, Dad will like it.
After I finished my hai card, I just wasn't quite ready to stop for the day so I made one more:
When I do the Friday Flashback posts, I almost never look at the older project pictures first so it's just coincidence that I used the same two stamps from the set on my two new projects. That, and those are my favorite stamps in the set. Anyway, this one is for the challenge at Fusion:
I went with the sketch more than the paper hearts picture, though I think I could do some thing with green, orange and purple. Maybe another time. Anyway, this good luck card I think also counts for the Male Room challenge again.
So that's it for me today. Hope you have a great weekend, y'all! I think we might go see Kung Fu Panda 3...
