Bright & Beautiful Balloons DSP NOT Retiring – Hooray!
Mar 29, 2024
Stampin' Up! Bright & Beautiful Balloons DSP card, congratulations message, multi-colored circles and gold stars in background

Let’s talk about the Bright & Beautiful suite in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog (that’s the one retiring on 4/30). It’s unusual for Stampin’ Up!, but in this case the fun Bright & Beautiful DSP is NOT RETIRING! Hooray! This designer series paper (DSP) is so bright and fun and perfect for any celebration. It’s my current go-to for birthdays and more.

But, the Beautiful Balloons stamps and dies are – boo! So, grab them while you can for a great versatile celebration bundle to have on hand. The balloons alone are worth it – the stamps can be added to envelopes and you can easily die cut bunches of them as well. Again, my go-to for birthdays and more!

Since the Beautiful Balloons bundle is retiring on 4/30, you’ll want to grab it here before it’s gone – it will be available only while supplies last.
