You are my True North

September 11, 2013

Happy Wednesday, blog friends!!  How was your day yesterday?  We went and had burgers, fries & beers {well, I had hand crafted rootbeer because I don't like beer} at JL Beers, then caught up on Master Chef on Hulu.  We have been trying to spend time together as much as possible, because I go back to Montana on Monday for two weeks.

I have another card to share with you today using some new WPlus9 product from the August/September release!  Today I am using Dockside, Dockside Backgrounds, & Clear Cut Stackers: Circles.  I've combined them with the Uncharted Waters collection from Glitz Design, and it was a perfect match!  Here is the card I created!

1. Make A2 card from kraft cardstock.
2. Cut blue paper slightly smaller, stamp the X border to the left side, then adhere.
3. Stamp the sentiment to a tan ombre paper strip, then cut a banner edge to it.
4. Adhere with three other banners to the front.
5. Diecut two circles, & stamp the compass to the smaller one.
6. Adhere the circles to the front, popping the stamped one with foam adhesive.
7. Accent with the white flair, glittered stars & enamel dots.
8. Add the "remember this" paper strip with a paper clip to the upper right corner to finish.

Nautical themed items are such a big trend right now, and this stamp set goes perfectly with all the paper & embellishments out there right now!  Love it!

I looked around on some of my favorite challenge blogs looking for some inspiration...and I found it in the form of the Sweet Sunday Sketch #191 this time around!  I added some things here & there, but the sketch was a great jumping off point!  I was also inspired by the Fusion #17 challenge, Moxie Fab "All That Glitters is Gold" challenge, & The Pink Elephant #216 "Nautical" challenge as well!

I will be back tomorrow for my last day of WPlus9 inspiration for you!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Until later,
