Welcome to the Creatively Redeeming Treasures Blog Hop!  If you are coming from Angelina's Blog you're in the right place!  

I am so excited to have a new Idea Book coming out from Close To My Heart on August 1, 2013.  However, all good things must come to an end, and there are a bunch of spectacular stamps that are retiring come July 31st!  I made two cards for today, both featuring the Dream Big Stamp Set and a few other stamp sets that are going to retire:

This card is a cute children's birthday card made only with white card stock.   The frogs, bursts, and sentiment are all from the Dream Big Stamp Set.  The cake has been cut down from the Chantilly Cardmaking Kit.  Colors used were Pear, Sunset, & Sunny Yellow.

This card is really simple and an easy formula from which to make many different cards.  What I love about the Dream Big Stamp Set, is that the shapes coordinate with the Perfect Fit Frames and the CTMH 1 1/4 inch circle punch.  The Lady Bug & Flourish are from Dream Big Stamp Set and the flower shape is from Circle Together Stamp Set.  This is another great set that coordinates well with the punch.  Also, notice that I used the brand new Bronze Shimmer Trim which I LOVE!

So Hurry Up and order these stamps before they leave us forever!  

Well that wraps it up!  To start back at the beginning, go to Elizabeth's Blog.
