Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Addicts Retiring Stamp Set Blog Hop! We are excited to be featuring some fun stamp sets from the new Occasions Catalog. You may have arrived here from Rhonda Griffin’s Blog where she featured Gifts of Kindness or perhaps Mary Trautner’s Blog (if you are going backwards), or you may be starting here. In any case, all of the blogs link together in a circle so you won’t miss a stop!

I am excited to be featuring the super cute Happy Hour stamp set. I love this one! My first card uses the colors from the current Fab Friday Challenge, which are all of the retiring In Colors.

Happy Hour Birthday by Yapha

Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding

Other: Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker’s Twine, Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine, Coastal Cabana Thick Baker’s Twine, Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine, Pistachio Pudding Thick Baker’s Twine

My second card uses a technique that I have used before with this set before and some of the other drink sets as well. These cute punch art olives are made with the Small Oval Punch (also retiring) and the biggest eyeball from the Owl Builder Punch.
