Nah, I’m not on the road again – we just got home!
But I’m imagining myself in Japan, riding the Shinkansen and gazing out the windows at Mt. Fuji. We made that trip in 2012 (oh, can it be that long ago??) and the UNESCO World Heritage site was unfortunately hidden in the clouds. However, today the clouds are high in the sky and Fuji-san is clearly visible:
- Stamps: New Year Celebrations
- Color palette: Whisper White, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Basic Black, Metallic Copper
- Accessories: Stamparatus, Copper Foil Sheets, 1/4″ Copper Trim, Stampin’ Dimensionals
Without getting too personal here, let’s just say that my eyesight isn’t quite what it used to be (ahem). I was having a little trouble aligning the images, despite the fact that they’re photopolymer and theoretically I should have no problem.
(Distraction: theories aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.)
After a couple of unsatisfactory attempts at aligning the outline of the mountain, the interior, and the glorious rising moon, it occurred to me that the solution was within an arm’s reach. I got out my Stamparatus and the problem was solved nearly instantaneously.
This stamp set was originally designed for the Stampin’ Up! Japanese market, but was released to the US market just until January 31, 2020. It’s product #146391 and it’s $25. If you’d like to see a graphic that documents all of the images and their significance, click HERE.
Are you ready to ride the Shinkansen? Or just take a paper-and-ink trip?

Beautiful!! I’ve been playing around with the Mt. Fuji stamp and you’ve nailed it! I think the Stamparatus is key! And your colors are “kirei desu ne”.
