{Sneak Peek} This Weekend's Projects

I hope you had a great weekend.  In our neck of the woods, it was uncharacteristically warm and sunny, so between baseball/softball and Mother's Day, it was a terrific weekend!

As we're counting down the final weeks before some favorite stamps and accessories retire, I thought I'd focus most of my efforts on retiring items.  Here are a few things I was working on this weekend:

Here's Cottage Garden, a favorite which will be retiring at the end of May.  Love that tag stamp!
Tiny Teacup is a single stamp ("a la carte") which will retire on May 31.  It's got a sentiment "Hello" attached, but I inked just the cup for this project.

Bling, bling!  A rhinestone brad adds a bit of shimmer and twinkle to Pendant Park, which *SADLY* retires at the end of May.
Grunge Rock (another retiree) is the stamp set I used for this final project.  What is marketed as a set for the tween/teen set,  I've had a lot of success using it for grown men, too!  I love the distressed look of its images and the useful diamond pattern stamp (you can see it in the lower left corner).
Thankfully, this sweet stamp set, Easy Events, is not retiring (the tree and cupcake below are from this terrific set).  I love both the line images and the sweet sentiments!
You can see a sliver of the Lattice Bigz die in this picture; I love how versatile it is (nothing on this card is retiring -- phew!)!
Looking forward to telling you more!  Check this post for how you can earn a free Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 Annual Catalog from Studio Sara...
