Seaside Wonders

     Hello everyone,  the cards that I have to share is from the brand new Stampin Up Occasions spring catalog 2016.  I fell absolutely in love with this stamp set. I live on the east coast in a beach town, so the starfish in this stamp set was a must have.  The depth and detail that these stamps get from their multi layer stamping technique is awesome. I will tell you that some of the DSP that you will see on these cards is retired and therefore so are the ink and card stock colors quite  possibly.  As always I hope you get inspiration and ideas from the cards  Enjoy!
