Greg has done nice things with the Big Blossom stamp. For me, ordering the stamp seemed like a good idea at the time, but I have trouble using it. I just donít like having to cut out a stamped image to use it, but this seems to be the only way this blossom will behave.
Greg has a number of Big Blossom cards, and this one inspired me for my card:
Things that I especially loved about his card which I copied were the layout, the piercing, the doodling, and stamping the sentiment on a tab and attaching it to the card with a ribbon. Things I changed were the colors, the type of tag (a CB slider, instead of a tag) and I Ďkissedí the blossom with my Canvas stamp. Greg also distressed his pierced layer, but I chose to leave well enough alone.
I chose the colors by grabbing ones I rarely use: Ruby Red and Cameo Coral. I find that I donít use Handsome Hunter much either.
