Default Made my own replica of Big Blossom!

I like the stamp but not enough to make it one of my top choices. Using a piece of scrap rubber from Home Depot (plumbing dept.) I cut out a single petal and mounted on EZ Mount. Voila! Just stamp repeatedly in a circle and you've got it!!!!!!!

My camera is on a trip with my son and our scanner is broken! Will post one when I can find a way to do it. I have a piece of left over background stamp (much like flannel) and I am going to cut out a petal like that too. Too much fun!

Another hint. I had a bit of trouble cutting the curve on the top completely round and smooth. A sanding disk around the edge made it perfect!

Since I don't own this yet, I think I will try. Thanks for the idea.

I am having fun making those petals out of all kinds of things and getting lots of cool textures! I ran an old cheese grater over some rubber and got the greatest texture!

I got a Cricut for Christmas and the cartridge that comes with it makes a flower that's perfect. It looks to me like the big blossom flower. I made it today on size 3 (or 4) and put it on the card I made.

Great idea! A little "add on" idea might be to use a good dremel tool for sanding the edges. I use my dremel for an unreal amount of things, and I believe it would work very well for this purpose.

My husband is very happy that I won't "need" to spend ANOTHER $50 to get that particular one when there were 2 others ahead of it on the SAB list!

You can buy different thicknesses at Home Depot and they all seem to work just fine. I used 3/16" for this one because it was just what was on top of the pile.

Default My version....

I had some scraps left from sheets of rubber stamps. Found one big enough to cut out a petal. Here is my card... Faux Big Blossom

Thanks, housefan! I am such a cheapskate (whenever possible). Have to save money somewhere, so that I can blow it on something else.

TFS, Housefan! I love enablers that don't make me spend $$$ . I'm so tickled that CASEing is allowed/encouraged here. I have some of that fun foam stuff.. and old mouse pads.. I think I'll play around w/ it tomorrow! Please post a pic when you can!

Great flower, Garnet! I love the single petal on the tag.. and that the tag is attached to the big flower!

Darn it! I have the Big Blossom on it's way! I wish I would have seen this thread two days ago! lol

The mousepad idea is great...i think that would make a great stamp, if you could cut it out to the shape you want.

TFS everyone!

I just now made a second one of these and punched it full of tiny holes with a tiny hole punch and now I can have a polka dotted big blossom! People are emailing asking where I get the rubber. It comes in varying thicknesses at Home Depot in the plumbing department. I run the thinnest rubber through my Cuttlebug with my dies to make additional stamps in the die cut shapes too.

You can buy 12" x 12" sheets in varying thicknesses.

My Home Depot (plumbing dept) had only 1 thickness. Around $2.50 for 2 shts in pkg - 6"x6"x3/32" made by PlumbShop, Novi, MI. Pkg states its Gasket Rubber for making gaskets and washers. Since I found this and don't have CB, I haven't checked at Lowes for thinner rubba.

What a great idea GarnetJ and lovely samples ladies! I've been very tempted by the Big Blossom stamp but now I can avoid getting it thanks to you! Thanks for sharing the idea and samples.

I may have to visit this PlumbShop in Novi and see what they have It's about two mile from my house.

I actually like using the really thick rubber for making shape stamps. You may need to sand it though. There is a less shiny side that works better, but I get amazingly good impressions with the stuff!

Did this card using a stencil which I cut and then stippled the image. Will get some rubber and make a stamp too. Thanks for the ideas everyone.
