Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Dream Big Day 1 Blog Hop!
Today I have a set of four beautiful cards featuring lots of new products from the Dream Big Release: Talavera Vine, Big & Bold Stamp/Die Combo, Layered Hummingbird, Blossom Vine, Alstroemeria Stem, and Sword Fern. The bright, lovely colors of these cards are perfect for many different occasions. You could even leave the sentiments off until you need a card and add the sentiment for the occasion!

The Thank YouText Background was stamped over the embossed panel with Pawsitively Saturated Field Ink. The ink on the embossed areas was wiped away with a soft dry cloth. More Field Ink was applied over the design to darken the background as really make the embossed area pop! The excess ink was wiped away to finish the backgrounds.
