One Mistake After Another



Melissa made some beautiful cards on the Papertrey Ink 
 MIM video.


If only I had a video of me making this card. Oh my gosh ...... each time I would add the embossing powder to my die cut it would fall and get messed up , then when I would go to heat it up..same thing. ( I do know how to prevent this from happening)  I was going to give up but decided an imperfect card was what I was making today.  Not that I think my other cards are perfect, just sharing all the mistakes today. :) I might remake it!

  1. Ha! Mistake making could fill volumes in my craft room! This is lovely, lovely lovely! Your arranging of blooms should be a tutorial. Always perfect results! Love the kraft on a white bg too! Stand out gorgeous!!!

  2. Had to laugh at reading this post Marybeth, as I can't tell you how many times I mess up with embossing! I am constantly dropping or smudging things (or stamping/gluing them upside down....grrrrrr!), so you definitely are NOT alone!! Guess we just have to laugh about it and move on! But anyway, I love your sweet and CAS card...perfection (to me) as always!! :0)

  5. Your 'mistake' card looks like my 'best effort' cards, Marybeth! I don't EVER get embossing right :( I Love this card and think the Doodlie Do stamps/dies are just perfect for this technique!

  6. Just lovely Marybeth, and there are no imperfections to me. And what a lovely choice of colors too! (I also used the notecard from DFTW, can't stop using it!)

  12. You are so cute, Marybeth! We can all relate! I'm so proud of you for persevering, but um, guess my eyesight is failing me now cuz I think this is a perfect and perfectly adorable card!! But, if you DO make a big fat boo-boo this month, please remember to take a photo and share it on my April Fool's Boo Boo Hop/NBUS Challenge #11! (Shameless plug!) Hugs, Darnell

  13. Oh, this card looks awesome to me, Marybeth - can't see anywhere that you couldn't get you embossing perfect!!!! I really love the idea to have the white on the kraft base and then the coloured kraft flowers on top - it really looks great!!!! How you have arranged the flowers is very beautiful!!!!! This is a very pretty card, my friend!!! Love it!!!
    Have a great day!!!

  16. What a beautiful card Marybeth. I think making mistakes is all part of making cards. I know I throw out more than I keep...yours is definitely a keeper! Cheers.

  17. So strange how sometimes that just happens. I'm glad you posted this. To me it looks like you used a Distress embossing powder (intentionally, of course), and it's a great look with the pencil on kraft!

  18. I don't see anything but pretty blooms here, Marybeth! Love the kraft! And the white just looks soft and lovely with your coloring!

  19. I can't see ANY mistakes! It's Beautiful! I want to pull out that stamp set again!

  20. Really, you might remake this lovely card, Marybeth?? Goodness, it's so pretty ... the soft, subtle colours on that delicious Doodlie Do bouquet are gorgeous! It sounds as though it was one of those frustrating card making moments ... though it was so worth keeping at it to create this beauty! Bon weekend! Hugs, Anita :)

  22. Bob Ross always said there are no mistakes, only happy
    accidents. This was a happy accident that looks
    wonderful.
    thanks for sharing.

  23. WOWZER, Marybeth, I only wish my mistakes were half as good as yours. This is beautiful and wouldn't think to use Kraft flowers on white, but your coloring pops them off the card. I love this. Now I need line image stamps and think Doodle-Do is perfect for this technique.
