I took inspiration today from the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
I'd purchased a quietly unassuming set from the July-December Mini Catalogue, Sunkissed because of the beach images and the summery Christmas greeting and was looking to give it a try out.
I stamped two of the images and coloured them with Stampin' Blends before cutting them out with a stitched circle die. Mine was from the retired Stitched Shapes.
I made the centre sentiment circle into a luggage label, in keeping with the holiday feel of this set. I used the Painted Texture embossing folder because it had the feel of waves about it. The So Saffron circle for the tag came from my bits box but I think originally came from leftovers from Tailor Made Tags,
