At first, I was a bit nervous using these Asian stamps, but once I got started I found they were lots of fun to work with and versatile for any occasion.
My cards are from Stamp Set 181 Asian - Carp and Stamp Set 300 Asian - Umbrella Geisha. There are 13 images included in Stamp Set 181, however, you can get more just by cutting the stamped images apart. 

The 1st card is made using the center of the larger circle image, colored and attached to sheer ribbon with pop-dots.

The 2nd card is using the middle image of the same stamp. I added small rhinestones around the inner edge of the circle and attached a heart charm to ribbon.

The 3rd card uses the largest outside image as a frame for the lattice and flowers.

 One Stamp ~ Three looks
 Now That's a good deal!


Tear-i-fic Tape is not just for securing images. Here I've used it as a sparkly "ribbon" background by coating with Dazzling Rose Glitter .  I added the stamped flowers to Sticker Paper, coating with Sparkling Snow Glitter .  The Outer Space Embossing Powder,  gives a simple, yet elegant pattern background.
Have fun creating your own, Asian experience!
For complete directions to create these cards, please see my gallery here.
