Dockside with WPlus9

Welcome back to my last day showing you some fun with WPlus9 products! As if the anchors weren’t enough nautical fun yesterday…check out these two little “crabbie” projects.


How fun are those little nautical guys? I made this card for my stepson’s upcoming birthday. I started this card by stamping the rope pattern from Dockside Backgrounds on a white card stock base. Then I stamped the sentiments on a circle from Clear Cut Stackers: Circles I just love the “Lil’ Skipper” sentiment with the fun rope text from Dockside.


Some twine and a die cut (adorable) crab and anchor from Dockside Die finish this little guy up. I hope my favorite lil’ skipper likes it!

Next up some feminine fun with the Dockside collection.


I love how navy, pink, and orange have become such a popular color combo. It’s not one I would usually put together, but think it works great with this card theme.

I started with a pink card stock base. Then I stamped a strip of white card stock with the diamond pattern from Borders & Backgrounds 2 and the sentiments from Dockside. One super cute navy crabbie from Nautical Notions Die and some pink jewels to top it off.

That’s all from me for the August / September WPlus9 release for now. Hope you’ve enjoyed these products as much as me! Make sure to check back with Dawn the rest of this month and next to see what the Design Team has cooked up for you with the latest goodies!

Now back to the baby waiting game – 38 weeks on Monday and SO ready to meet our baby girl!


Day 2 with WPlus9

Yes I am back with more of the latest yummy products from WPlus9! I have to say I’m pretty impressed that I’m still cranking out cards being 9 1/2 months pregnant. It’s really not so bad other than the swelling and lack of sleep from being uncomfortable. Maybe the delerious-ness is making me even more creative! 🙂

When I saw these adorable banner stamps from Basic Banners I knew I wanted to keep it simple. Then of course I fell in LOVE with the anchor die cut from Nautical Notions Die.


As an alumni of Delta Gamma sorority, we are kind of obsessed with anchors. For the sorority they represent “Hope” and are such a fun symbol. I love how the patterned paper really makes the anchor pop with a little bit of twine.


And speaking of “Thanks” my little sister in the sorority was sweet enough to send a care package for baby Betty of darling “anchor” themed clothes! I can’t wait to see our little girl represent for Delta Gamma!

Next up something even a bit more nautical, but featuring the fabulous Monogrammed stamp set.


Kraft goes beauitfully with the navy blue color of Nautical Navy CardstockI love the background on this card, even though the photograph doesn’t do it justice. I used Dockside Backgrounds with some gold embossing powder to create a pattern of little anchors and diamonds. 


You’ll see more of the Nautical Notions Die as well on this card. I used the life preserver as a frame for one of the die cuts from Clear Cut Stackers: CirclesAnd of course the gorgeous sailboat die cut as well.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for even more “nautical” themed cards. I even feature some crabs…which I’m obsessed with those little critters right now!
