Dream Big Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends – It is a bit of a blast from the past today on my blog.  I’m playing along with the Baker’s Dozen of Taylored Expressions (one of my favorite companies), sharing a sample of the fabulous Dream Big stamp set that was released a while back.

Taylored Expressions is gearing up for a great release on Thursday and Dream Big will be 25% off -OR- FREE with any order of $100 or more.  This special will be in effect Thursday through Sunday, or while supplies last.

So, if you need a great graduation set… you might want to add this one to your shopping cart. :)  And if you need a bit of inspiration, here is a card I made:


I paired the set with one of my favorite paper pads: Seen & Noted. See that piece of notepaper?  That was created from some of the designer paper and the fantastic Notepaper & Clipboard dies.

I stamped various images from the set in different colors on Choice Snow White cardstock and then cut out using a Circle Nestabilities die. I then used the number stamps from the set to create a stamped background behind the focal point.


I embellished the card with some ribbon, a little green clip and a few rhinestones. Of course I added some machine stitching. ;)


That is it from me. Check out more fabulous samples using Dream Big and the new coordinating stamps and dies:
