More {Retiring} Favorites

We are edging ever closer to the close of the Stampin' Up! 2013-14 Annual Catalog and I thought I'd share a few more projects made from a retiring stamp set, Delicate Doilies.  While this set is no longer available in clear- or wood-mount, it is available as a digital download for use with My Digital Studio (MDS).

{Retiring Favorites} Day One: Create a Cupcake

Create a Cupcake is the first set I'm highlighting in this, our last week with the 2013-14 Annual Catalog.  This stamp set is retiring (though, thankfully, the coordinating Cupcake Builder Punch is not!).  Stamp sets are available only as supplies last.

This card was made using the Fresh Prints DSP Stack from the Occasions Catalog, which will also be unavailable at the end of the week.  And that Coastal Cabana Ruffled Trim?  Yup, retiring...

This card's sentiment is one of my favorite stamps and is from Create a Cupcake.  The beautiful images that you see on the left are from the retiring set, Hello, Lovely.

Here's another sentiment from the Create a Cupcake stamp set...

The Memorial Day weekend meant no baseball/softball/teeball for my busy clan, so I had a lot of time to play in the Studio. Here are some other projects I've been working on:

This patriotic card was inspired by the day on which it was made {Memorial Day}.  "Thank you" to service people and their families seems woefully inadequate...
