My BFF left yesterday for a trip to Verona, Italy. I know she will have a wonderful time. I wanted to send her off with a few treats and, of course, a hand made travel card. It was easy to think of the Waterfront stamp set to create an Italian countryside picture. I had to search a bit to come upon the sentiment. Do you know which stamp set it is from?

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer, the sentiment is from Sea of Textures. Did you guess that?



Design Notes for Waterfront Travel Card:

I think it took me longer to select the colors than to actually make the card! It’s so easy to create a tranquil scene with the Waterfront stamps – mountains, lakes, rivers, evergreen trees, palm trees, little cottage – all are possible with this set. Here’s a close up look at the stamps in the Waterfront stamp set.

This stamp set is photopolymer and so it was easy to line up the palm tree trunks and branches. When you look at the Supply List below, you will notice that I’ve listed a Stampin’ Pierce Mat in the supplies. When you use photopolymer stamps, it’s best to stamp on a mat. You will get a nice clear image that way.

I know you probably can’t see it, but I added some Wink of Stella on the water. It’s never a mistake to add some Wink of Stella!
