Hi, this is Emily. I have some exciting news!! I’ve joined the Studio Katia Design Team and today’s my first post on their blog! I’m very honoured to be joining so many of my talented friends on this team and I’m also thrilled to be promoting a Canadian company. Yay!
Today’s card uses several stamp and die sets. I’ve missed travelling so much these last few months and I spent quite a bit of time reminiscing about our trip to Portugal last summer. That trip was the inspiration for this card. I started with the European Window Die to frame my scene and I glued two layers of watercolour cardstock and gave the top layer a wash of pumice stone distress ink.
To create the background scene, I used the Brush Stroke Waves Stencil to create the ocean and the Underwater Sun Rays to create the sunrise. Then I stamped and heat embossed three buildings from Whimsical Town and watercolored them with distress inks.
The potted plant on the windowsill inside the room is from the Potted Plants stamp set and the custom sentiment is from the Flourishing Note stamp set. The bottom of the pot is glued to the window frame and the top is popped up with foam tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
