well the signal from that compass is not suited to illuminate anything... you need a circuit that gives current to whatever will illuminate your carpet on the right signal from the compass...

Rather than printing, it may be easier to weave or sew electroluminescent wire into the carpet, triggered by something like Arano's suggestion.

the first step i think would be an electronic compass... i found one here http://www.roboticsconnection.com/p-59-cmps03-electronic-compass.aspx ... now you need a cicuit that iluminates your carpet on the right signal...
