To make card base, cut a 2-7/8" x 11-7/8" piece of card stock...score at 2-3/8" intervals. Each season scene is stamped on a 2" x 2-1/2" piece and mounted on a black piece that's just 1/16" larger on each side. Before you glue each scene onto the card...cut a 14" piece of ribbon...use double stick tape to adhere it to the top panel...allow 4-1/2" of the ribbon to stick out of the right side of the card. Accordian fold your card and glue your scenes on. All images of Emi are from MC-24 (Tea Time).
Snowflake stamps are from MC-9 (Snowflakes)
Branch and Cherry Blossom stamps are from CL-11 (Keiko).
Cloud stamp is from CL-2 (Happy Thoughts) and Sun stamp is from CL-6 (Sunny Days)

Just for fun I made a bunch of pens...I'm getting hooked on using those kokeshi faces...
I have a foam dot between the 2 flowers and between the top flower and the kokeshi face (for added dimension). I used Glossy Accents to coat each face, and for a secure hold between layers...and finally, to glue the flower to the pen.
I used Emi's face from stamp #6026:

One more idea using cling set CL-15 (Kokeshi)...cupcakes!!
Click here for a pattern. Simply cut 2 pattern pieces out of contrasting papers. Glue the belt onto the main piece, matching the bottom edge. Then simply wrap around a cupcake and secure the end with double stick tape (you might want to put a couple of pieces of tape to hold it securely). Mount faces on a toothpick and add a ribbon...that's it!!
