{ stephanie card }

Here's a card I made this afternoon for Stephanie! 'Looking forward to stamping with you later! Woohoo a fest-a-bella!

Jen said: "Can you confirm how you made this card? I rec'd my Big Blossom stamp the other day too... love it. Thanks, cindy! "

Here's how I made this card...

1. I stamped the smaller flower by Hero Arts with Pixie Pink classic ink on confetti white card stock and immediately spread the ink around using an aqua painter.
2. While the card stock was still wet I cut out the flower... and as it dried the petals curled up nicely all by themselves.
3. I applied stickles to the petals and set it aside to dry.
4. Next I inked up the big blossom stamp with Pixie Pink classic ink and then "kissed" it with a clean stamp from the Big Pieces stamp set. I cleaned the stamp between each smooch. Then I put the big blossom stamp rubber side up on the table and put some white confetti card stock over it and rubbed it with a closed ink pad (you could use your hand or a brayer).
5. Then I drew the dashes around the edge with a black SU marker and then cut out the flower and attached it to a black card. I trimmed off the pieces of flower than were hanging over the edge.
6. Then I added the brad to the center of the hero arts flower and attached it to the big blossom with a couple of glue dots.


  1. Great idea to use Big Pieces for kissing this one!

  2. Wow, that's a beautiful card!!

  3. Wow Cindy, this is a beautiful card!

  4. Nice idea with the flower in the middle of the Big Blossom.

  5. Just lovin' your cards. Awesome girl!

  8. Stunning Cindy! I love the black and pink together. My Big Blossom stamp arrives on Wed. with some other new SU toys...I can hardly wait!

    Beautiful work as always!


  9. So pretty! I love the button in the center and the Big Pieces on the edges of the Blossom.

  10. Can you confirm how you made this card? I rec'd my Big Blossom stamp the other day too... love it.
    Thanks, cindy!

  11. Cindy, This is so pretty. When I first saw the BIG blossom set in the SAB catalog I thought it was, "Ugly" but now I've seen so many great cards using it that I'm rethinking that thought. Love your colors and the brad in the middle is a nice touch. Ida

  12. IMHO, you have created the very best Best Blossom of any I've seen to date! This is drop dead gorgeous...thanks for sharing.
