Oops! Card and Blog Candy Winner

Yesterday I shared a spring wreath birthday card I made using the Stamparatus.  If you missed that post, you can see it HERE.  I love the Stamparatus for many reasons, one of which is I get a “do over” if I don’t get a good image the first time I stamp.  It’s so easy to just reink and stamp again…it stamps in the exact spot making it look great every time! Here’s a video showcasing the Stamparatus if you want to see it in action.

So, what do you do if you get too much ink? I’m sure we’ve all experienced inky fingers getting on our project after it was finished! I prefer not to start over again so I try to turn my “boo boos” in to new creations.  Let’s face it, the recipient had no idea what my first attempt was supposed to look like (right?). Most times I just add an embellishment to cover it up (which is why I’m in love with the new Butterfly Duet Punch and Bitty Blooms Punch Pack).  Unfortunately, that wouldn’t work with this particular oops! Look what happened when I stamped the sentiment (after I had stamped my pretty spring wreath).

I hate it when ink gets on the rim of the stamp and transfers to the paper! I did not want to toss my pretty wreath! So a quick fix was to stamp the sentiment again on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, punch it out with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and cut a navy layer with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Just adhere on top and mission accomplished!

I like to challenge myself to find a way to “make it work” before tossing it in the trash and starting over. My friend Susan gave me a Tombow sand eraser and it helps to fix little smudges.

I can’t decide which card I like better. Do you have a preference?

  1. Congratulations Beth!!! As far as your boo-boo, I think I kind of like that border around the sentiment. Either card is great though. My problem yesterday was that I was using the Stamparatus and the front of the card was using a red rubber stamp and I had removed the shim etc for it and then on the inside I was using a photopolymer stamp. I could not figure out why it was stamping so bad. Then, after the fourth try and getting part of it so dark it dawned on me. But, I couldn’t just add in the shim thing as I was not stamping with the paper in the corner. Oh well, I ended up stamping a another piece of whisper white and then cut it bigger than the area and then used a strip of the gingham under the sentiment going across the card like I did on the front. Turned out ok.

  2. Hi Jeanie,
    While both cards are lovely.. I really like the one with the navy circle… makes the card just pop..
    Thank you.

  3. Both cards are beautiful, but if I had to choose my favorite it would be the boo boo card. It has more of a finished look with the navy layer around the sentiment. Enjoy your weekend, Jeanie.

  4. Well, Jeanie, it looks like it’s unanimous so far: the boo-boo card takes the prize. It really is fortuitous sometimes to make a mistake. Love both cards [couldn’t imagine making the original better but I think you did] Thanks for sharing your fix. Enjoy your weekend with your daughter, and Happy Birthday!

  5. I like both cards, but the oops card is my favorite. I tend to “hide” my oops spots, too! Thanks for the chance to win the birthday prize! I emailed my address to you. Happy March!

  6. Oh yes ! I had the same thing happen yesterday . So depressing and no way could I add something to cover . Thank you for sharing because we all have OH NO s happen , I really like the navy addition because I am a subtle details lover and that hint of navy is just perfect !
    Happy B`Day !
