Fun with Kamigami no Asobi

Don’t know what Kamigami no Asobi is?  Well I didn’t either until a staff member asked me to make a birthday card for his wife. Last year I made her a Hello Kitty card that she loved.  He didn’t want to repeat so he had been thinking for several weeks on what to use for this years card when one evening they were watching this Japanese animation show called Kamigami no Asobi and it hit him.  He provided me with a sketch and a .JPEG file of the eight characters from the show.  He wanted all the characters, stars and rainbows incorporated as well as Happy Birthday written in Japanese.   Here’s my card.


I printed on card stock the picture of the characters and paper snipped them out.  I used the icing portion of the Cupcake Builder punch to create the clouds they are standing in.

I had to think a bit more on how to do the rainbow.  I initially thought I would use one of the stamps from the Work of Art stamp set to make the rainbow but when I pulled them out, they were just too too big.  The card would have been 12×12.  I found the stem stamp from Everything Eleanor, a slight curve and thin.  I honestly don’t think I’ve ever even used that part of Everything Eleanor but I use the swirl stamp from that set ALL THE TIME.



IMG_1486-001I also wanted to use slightly muted IMG_1485-001rainbow colors, not bright and cheery. If you notice, the Kamigami characters are not ubber happy, kinda scowly faced and bright and cheery rainbows would not do.  So I pulled out Cherry Cobbler, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss to make my rainbows.  I stamped them all on whisper white then cut them out. The little yellow guy in the bottom right corner represent the husband, that’s his signature. 

The Japanese symbol for Happy Birthday I just printed on my computer.   He loved the card and so did she!!

  1. You pulled this challenge off beautifully!

  2. Oh, and as we learned at convention, “kawaii!” I am not sure that I spelled this right but Rich Jutkins shared with us his stamping experience in Japan. That is what one woman exclaimed after she finished her card. She was so excited with how it turned out she exclaimed, “kawaii!”

  3. I love this card and all the work you put into it. It seems like it was fun figuring it all out. They colors are fantastic. I love the clouds. What a special gift.
