WPlus9 August/September Release - Day 3

Hi there! I'm back for Day 3 of the WPlus9 August/September Release. It's my last day today, but I hope you've enjoyed everything and have found some inspiration. I'm featuring Dockside ,Dockside Backgrounds, Dockside Die and Nautical Notions Die today, so please join me!

I just love cards with navy blue stripes on it. LOVE the bold look it gives the cards. If you can believe it, I'm actually featuring a lot of CAS cards today. lol. I would never have thought that because of how hard the CAS style is for me. Heehee. But Nautical goes so well with it that I gave it a go. :)

I used the Nautical Navy cardstock to make the bold stripes on the background. Then stamped the circle image and die cut it with Clear Cut Stackers: Circle. I attached the crab from Nautical Notions Die with foam tape and heat embossed my sentiment below it.

My second card is similar to the first, but this one I made using Borders & Backgrounds 2. Then I heat embossed Monogrammed in silver and added the same a smaller crab die from Dockside Dies.

This is one of my favorites. I saw a cute anchor necklace and thought I would translate it into a card. I used the anchor die from Nautical Notions Die. I made a shadow behind it by die cutting two in different shades of gray and then adhering them off center.

For this card, I used Dockside Backgrounds to make the wooden slats. I used the sentiment from Dockside as well as the beautiful compass. 

I finished it off by tying some jute twine around the card and attaching an anchor below the ribbon.

Finally, one last CAS card for today. I saw something similar on Pinterest and thought it was really pretty. So I tried to make my version of it. I hope it's ok. My CAS cards are always hit and miss. When my sister saw this (we were Skyping while I was making cards) she said that it looked like something was missing from it. lol! What do you think? Please back me up here. Hahahaha. :)

There you go! I hope you enjoyed that a lot! Thank you so much for joining me these past three days. I had so much fun with these new sets that I'm pretty sure you'll see me using them often here. See you again soon!
