Day 4, Phoenix Paper Crafters Create Daily Challenge

Hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural. There are no batteries to replace, it's inflation-proof and non-fattening with no monthly payments. It's non-taxable, non-polluting, and is, of course, fully returnable. ~Author unknown

Today is day 4 of the Phoenix Paper Crafters Create Daily Challenge located HERE and I am playing along best I can this month.

For my day 4 project I did not make another Christmas Card but I’m sure there will be more in the future as I have lots Christmas Type bits & pieces to use!

Anyway … I seem to have a terrible problem dropping ink pads on finished cards. I have no clue why but I guess I have about 10 cards sitting in a pile waiting to be checked over to see if I can salvage anything of of them

My card today was actually made for a challenge last year. (You can see the original post HERE). I had made it with someone specific in mind and while I was getting the stamp for the inside inked up, I hit the pad just right and yep … there it was, splat! Sometimes I get lucky and the mishap can been swiftly and easily covered with no one but me the wiser, but not this time!

Needless to say, I was not happy so set the card aside for a later recovery effort and here it is.

The card was a 5 x 7 card so I had to trim quit a bit off the top and along the right side to get the ink streaks off. I had a bit of the original DP I used to die cut the tea cup and sentiment so it made a great layering piece.

Supplies (best I can recall)
  • Repurposed item: Damaged card front
  • Card stock (base) unknown, “vapor” cut from a Bazzill scrap
  • Design paper from Stampin up
  • Dies: Unknown
  • Lace order embossing folder from Darice
  • Silk from Fun Stampers Journey
Thanks for stopping by!
