Don't you think the combination has a slight metallic look?  One of the best experiences of my life was a 3 week educator's tour of Japan.  since that time I've loved the Japanese look, so I was thrilled when I was able to purchase the retired CTMH stamp set Kanji Phrases.  I've also included another card I made with this set.



  1. Josie - do you have the retired stamps number and name? I WOULD LOVE TO FIND ONE!!!! I am big into the Japanese style and only have wood block style available. Thanks! (We should put a bug in CTMH ear that we'd like to see a new set including kanji!)

    1. It is C1339, Kanji Phrases. I found it on a facebook site called CTMH Beg, Borrow, Buy, or Trade.
