Circle Sayings is my Favorite Retiring Stamp Set
Apr 12, 2024
Stampin' UP! Circle Sayings in blues and circle sentiment "because you're awesome"

Stampin’ Up!’s Circle Sayings stamp set is retiring as of 4/30, and I’m not sure why but I am only just realizing the hole this is going to make in my cardmaking designs. This was my #1 go-to stamp set of the year! Looking back, I realized I used it every month for classes and in blog posts like this one.

The Circle Sayings sentiments are versatile, and the way some of them are curved allows them to fit perfectly in the 2 3/8″ Circle Punch with which the stamp set is currently bundled for savings. Fortunately, the punch will be available in our online store ongoing.

The card shown above is one that could be used for a man – blues and grays for a masculine tone. It also uses a treat bag to provide the background Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is a fun twist, showing that you can find DSP in unusual places! Also, two of the sentiments from the Circle Sayings stamp set were combined to create the focal point for the card.

Below are all the details for this card. For more ideas every month, be sure to sign up for my weekly newsletter at the bottom of this page. For info about my upcoming in-person and virtual classes, check out my class descriptions here and my calendar here. Thanks for checking this out!
