Have a Great Vacation.....{MCT Sneak Day 2}

Good Morning and 
Welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 33rd  Release!
This is such an AWESOME release as you saw from Day 1 of sneaks, right????
Well there is so much more!!!!!

 Today the DT is showcasing projects using the 
Surf's up and Sit back & Relax 
stamp and die sets.

You already saw projects from the DT using the Sit Back & Relax set from the Flip Flop Blog Hop and just to recap here are the 2 cards I made from that set...
If you missed that hop you can see all the details HERE on how I made these.

Of course I have another project using both of the new sets and dies, this one I made as a gift for a friend heading out on a beach vacation.....Hope you like it!
I just love how easy My Creative Time stamps and dies make decorating a gift. Just alittle something personal makes all the difference, don't you think?
I do for sure! So I found this fun oversized beach shovel at Target and thought this would make a great gift with a bottle of suntan lotion and a cute tag. Miss Emma's new release could not have come at a better time too :)

Here is what the tag looks like up close. And to make this tag I used a bunch of older dies and well as some of the new ones for this release.
Ok here is how I made this. I started off using the Tag Die for my base. Using all designer papers from Echo Park~Paradise Beach, I cut the waves from the Make a Splash Die and the surf board and beach ball from the new Surf's Up set. For the "sand" part of my tag, I used some coordination cardstock and inked up the distressed edges for a little more texture. Finally, I finished off my tag with the stamped sentiment from the new Sit Back & Relax set.

My Creative Time Products Used:
Sit Back & Relax (New Release)
Surf's Up (New Release)

Additional Products Used:
3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon
