SA 2016 Retiring Stamp Sets Blog Hop: Sea Street
Wow, the 2015-16 Annual Catalog is almost gone! And with it, lots of great sets with be retired. The Stampin' Addicts don't want you to miss some of our favorites from this catalog, so we are each picking a set and highlighting it on this blog hop. I kind of wish I could have chosen more than one, but I have been sharing many of my favorites all year long :)

If you are following along in order, then you just arrived from Twila Davis' blog, and she sure had some inspiring things to show us with Hello Life!

The first card I made is a shaker card with a whole bunch of die cut images. You guessed it, Dies by Dave makes a set of dies for this stamp set!! I just love that guy :) The birthday sentiment is from another retiring favorite of mine, Boys Will Be Boys. You can't really see it in the picture, but I used some Clear Wink of Stella on the flags.

Next up is a cute little thank you card. It is a 2¾"x3¾" card, so it is perfect to pop in as a thank you for purchasing from me :) The "thanks" is from Endless Thanks, which is NOT retiring!

Now, you know I had to do some watercolor! And it may surprise you to know that the darkest green here is the new In-Color, Emerald Envy. I love how it worked with the Soft Sky and Pool Party on this card! The little fish are heat embossed in silver, as is the sentiment. And the sentiment is from Bear Hugs, which will be in the new catalog!!

Last up is a card I threw together with stuff that was just laying on my desk :) I thought the sentiment "many thanks" was perfect with the many arms of the octopus. I know, I am so very dorky! And the Softly Falling embossing folder added some fun bubbles in the background without competing with the fun It's My Party DSP.

That's all for me! Now it's time to go see what Rhonda Griffin has created for us!

Such great projects, Tanya! I will miss this set with the adorable octopus! I really love the shaker card you made. It is super cute!

What a great collection! You always add such fun little details to your cards. I LOVE the colors in the watercolor card--I will have to remember that color combo. And the "many thanks" octopus is too funny!!
