So today I am featuring one of my *favourite* stamp sets... Big Blooms: Poinsettias from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I use this one all.the.time. And for tons of non-holiday projects, which is what makes it so great.
First up, I used one of the poinsettia images to create a bit of a toile background for my card.
Next, I used the medium illustrated bloom and coloured it - I *love* colouring this image. It's always so impactful.
I actually started out by colouring a red bloom, but halfway through decided I wanted to go a different route, and started over. I stamped the image in grey so that it would be softer, and I love how it turned out!

And finally, I also made an all-occasion card using this one. I used the set to create a background for my WMS February Blog Party post, and loved it so much, I did another version of the same pattern.
You'd never know it was a Christmas set, would you?
