Paper Smooches Nautical Trend Watch Challenge!! =)

Pin It

Okay on to my Project for the Paper Smooches Trend Watch Nautical Challenge!!
I don't have any of the Sea/Nautical Sets from Paper Smooches, but I did just get the New Retail Therapy Stamp Set and I thought it would be FUN to make a FUN Nautical Themed Bag card!!
I was going for a Store Front Window that was all decked out with the New Beach/Nautical Themed Bags. I used the FUN 6x6 paper pad Down By The Shore by Fancy Pants!! I LOVE it and the size of the elements fit perfectly with the stamps!! I then wanted to create a FUNNY Sentiment for either a Birthday or Travel/Vacation Card!! So I die cut the letters BEACH and layered them for a FUN Shadow look and then I also stamped three different stamps for the rest of the sentiment!! More Than and 24/7 from the Retail Therapy Set and Beautiful (Beautifully) from the Knick Knack Stamp Set!!  I used the Hot Spots SM One Dies (the dash Die) for my shelves!! I folded them in half and then trimmed the extra dash marks that were sticking up in the middle!! I inked the edges and I really LOVE the way these shelves look and turned out!!
I wanted to make it really Girly and Pretty so I added the sweet little bows to all of the bags and to the edges of my sentiment to tie it all together!! I stamped all of the bags and added the buckles and latches and handles this is such a FUN Stamp Set!! I added foam tape to the back of the bags for some dimension and I LOVE the way it turned out!!
Here are some pictures of my finished card!! Hope you LOVE it as much as I do!!??
