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.

So many choices, and I cannot pick a favorite. They are all so different yet all so beautiful. Wonderful cards. Thanks for all the inspirations.

Donna Ellis said...

What a marvelous job you have done depicting the usefulness of the images themselves, and developing such "fantastic" backgrounds with embossing powder and rich colors! Simply beautiful! We ended up using the same plate, but with different effects! How cool is that? I will miss hopping with you in future blog hops, Miss I-live-for-glitter Patti! (hugs!)

You no longer need to be nervous about using Asian stamps. You did a magnificent job on all your cards. They are simply gorgeous!

Jann said...

One stamp three images so different and each holding it's own weight.. What a great idea. Cannot call one out for being better I love all three.
The second series is just as great.
I still think that pink is becoming the oriental red for 2012.

Patti, you're like a runaway train! I guess you really got inspired! These are all very lovely. Great job.

The color combinations of the middle two cards speak to me. I also like the dangling heart.

Kathy Vogel said...

That is definitely intriguing how you've used the plate stamp in three different ways. I'll have to put this set on my wish list. I particularly like your first card with the center flowers & how you've colored them & the pretty background.

Dawn said...

I love how you used the same stamp to get three different looks. It shows the versatility of this stamp. Wonderful cards!

Wow! You really went all out with all the different cards. Sometimes I look at the stamps in the store and think that they would work for me. However you have taken one stamp and done exceptional cards. I also loved the techniaues you used to highlight different elements in your cars. Beautiful!

Julie Z said...

Wow you have been busy Patti! Great collection of cards - I'm not even sure which one I like the best! They're all very pretty & you've definitely shown how versatile the stamps are!
