Stampin' Up! Starburst Sayings on the 2015 Retiring List

Stampin-up-starburst-sayings-oh-happy-day-cardAs I look through the 2015 Retiring List from Stampin' Up!, there are several products that are on my list of favorites with two being the Starburst Sayings stamp set and the coordinating Starburst Framelits for the Big Shot.

This combo is fun and festive and I enjoyed creating handmade cards with this bundle to share with friends and family.

Starburst-sayings-stampin-up-cardsThe sentiments and images in this set are versatile and work for birthday cards to "I-think-you're-special" cards. The Starburst shape make these designer papers really stand out in the card above!  See the original post HERE.

Starburst-sayings-life-in-the-forestHere's another sample above with another retiring favorite, "Life in the Forest". Combining different sizes of Starburst shapes makes for an interesting backdrop for your main image.  See the original story on this card HERE.

You will love having these retiring products in your craft area so be sure to grab 'em up before they are gone!

If I can help you with your order, please let me know.  These bundles are only available while supplies last!
