Blog Hop with TAWS: Wish Big

It's that time of the month!  New stamps from The Alley Way Stamps!!!

As always there are three new full-size stamps and a mini that's free with a $40 purchase.  If you started with me, be sure to go back to the beginning of the hop at The Alley Way Stamps blog so you can see peeks of all of the sets! 

I have chosen to show you some of the big and bold stamps from the new birthday set - Wish Big.

TAWS Let's Celebrate

Their big, bold size makes them perfect for stamping on patterned paper!!  

For this card I used the current sketch at Fab Friday.



Then the paper pad with all of the bold prints also comes with a wonderful olivey green (quite a bit more olive than my photo shows!) - so I decided to go masculine too!  This gives me a chance to show you even more images from Wish Big!!

TAWS HB Dad
The sketch for this card came from Seize the Birthday.

Oh my goodness, Kim - these cards are 'swoon-makers' they're so adorable! I'm totally excited about this new release, especially since I received my first sets of TAWS stamps yesterday. In BEND!! The awesome Alison sent them here, so the 2-3 week wait was but a matter of days. This collection already on my 'must have' list!
