Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Feeling Nautical

feeling nautical card edited



For weeks, the Curtain Call Crew Design Team has been diligently preparing and anxiously awaiting "Curtain Time."  The day has finally arrived and we are thrilled to present our first inspiration challenge, Feeling Nautical.

To start the show, we have a fabulous sponsor, Verve Stamps!  Verve generously provided our crew with the versatile and classic, yet trendy Strong Anchor stamp set with coordinating Nautical Die Set to inspire us even further with our first challenge.
That's not all, folks!  Verve is also offering the Strong Anchor stamp set and coordinating Nautical Die Set to "The Lead" of the Feeling Nautical challenge! 


The Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #302 was PERFECT to showcase these fabulous Verve products and bring out all of the amazing elements from the challenge!  The Crazy 4 Challenges #194: Marine Life and Sizzlin' Summer Colors at Really Reasonable Ribbon will match up nicely to your nautical creations this week, too!  




Feeling Nautical Designers

Our Special Guest:  Julee Tilman, Verve Owner
Stacey Schafer - That's Me!
Tracey McNeely

Stop in over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog to see how you can play along!  Can't wait to see how you are inspired by Feeling Nautical!

The framed panel allowed me to use the Occasions Frame Die with sentiment from Strong Anchor as a focal point; while the anchor and wheel from the Nautical Die Set displayed in the upper left corner served as the add-on embellishment!   Of course, the seam binding from Summer Sailing Ribbon Bundle was just right to add a splash of yellow!
