Taylored Expressions April Release Day: Dream Big

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the Taylored Expressions April Release Day Celebration

Today on my blog, I made a card using the previously released stamp set called Dream Big which is an amazing graduation stamp set - so many awesome sentiments, collegiate number fonts to create the year of graduation and awesome images! The Dream Big stamp set will be 25% off - OR FREE with any order of a $100 or more! This special will be in effect today (this thursday) through Sunday or while supplies last!!

I love the circle image in this stamp set - so many possibilities of what to put in it :) I chose to put the stack of books colored with copics and then popped up with dimensionals. I stamped the row of graduation hats with three shades of blue inks and then cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals. I made this card for my little wee daughter as she moves from Kindergarten to the big First Grade!! (HOW did that happen??!!)
 Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Dream Big from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Pebbles (Family Ties) and Choice Buttercream cardstock
Inks: Memento Nautical Blue, Danube Blue and Bahama Blue and copics
Accessories: circle nesties, ribbon from stash, corner chomper, and dimensionals

And here is a look back to when this the Dream Big stamp set was first released - this was the card that I made almost two years ago for my son as he moved from Kindergarten to First Grade! I can't believe that he will be moving into third grade this year - so happy and so sad as they start to grow bigger... I love making cards for my children celebrating their milestones :)
 Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Dream Big from Taylored Expressions
Paper: October Afternoon (Schoolhouse)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ladybug red
Accessories: circle nesties, button from stash, Baker's Twine, Taylored Dies: Scalloped Eyelet border

I can't wait to see all the amazing creations that the Baker's Dozen have created with all the amazing stamp sets and dies from this month's release - trust me they are all amazing!!! Hop on over with me and check them out:
