Time to Play ............I Made a BooBoo!

Darnell's blog

 

"If you have ever completed a card, and then discovered a boo boo that made you feel like an April Fool, this hop is for YOU!!"

 
Well, it seems like Darnell knows me all to well and has arranged for a "HOP" of Boo Boos.

BACK TO THE BEGINING.....

Last week I was hard at work (well, play...) making an Easter card for a friend.  I stamped, and water colored ...............die cut bits and pieces.........even used the Cricut for the sentiment.............put it all together for a very lovely card......(IMHO.....*grin*) I was already to take a photo and post it to my blog............
 
Then I flipped it open to sign the back of the card...................
 
 
Well, what do ya know?!! I had already used this card base for a trial run......then quickly cleaned up the mess......and stuck the trial run back into the card base pile....LOL!! There was NO way to peel anything off and rescue it to an other card........ Lesson Learned: Check the backs and centers of all card bases BEFORE assembling.....and gluing ANYTHING to it. 
 
Yes, I could have closed the card and posted it to my blog...............but I DID try to rescue a few elements and totally mangled the card......LOL!
 
So there's my GIANT BOO BOO!  Now I'm away from my PC today, doing some volunteer work, but I'll be a "hop'n" tonight and tomorrow to see if you topped my BOO BOO!

  2. Well, dear Krisha, I'm not sure I can top THAT one, but the first card I ran through my printer last year, I loaded it in horizontal position and the image I had chosen for the front was a vertical position. I DO think yours definitely topped mine, because it was a card from my friend Sally who understands me!

  3. LOL, you could have done what I do in this common situation (common to me that is) cut the back off and used the card front as a layer on another card base! TFS! Hazel xx

  5. You must have been screaming Nooooooooooo when you saw that. Both sides look amazing. Glad it's not just me that does things like that! Cara x

  7. Oh dear. Disaster, especially after creating that gorgeous jar of blooms and color. Aarg! I'd have to walk away at this point.

  8. Well it certainly is a lovely card. I think I would have cut both sides in two and made two cards with just adding them to a layer or another card front. Both look to be beautiful to me.

  9. This is great! Lovely card, both ends..but I understand the struggle for sure~ Thanks for sharing!

  10. Oh now I remember, I made that mistake before too! : )

  11. Whew! Glad I'm not alone in having done exactly the same thing once or twice *grin*! Still, you do have two pretty panels here that, separated, would make for a duo of delight...Your vase of flowers...WOW! Thanks for sharing your 'oopsie' with us!

  12. Oh, Krisha, this is a Big Fat Boo Boo! But I'm sad that you didn't just cut the card in two and glue your beautiful bouquet front onto another card base. It really was a gorgeous front! Actually, come to that, IMHO, it's a gorgeous back, too, for yet a second card! I have done that sort of thing, but thankfully, it's been some random small stamp or ink splotch so I sent it anyway, hoping the recipient would just think I was being extra "arty!" Happy April Fool's Day and thank you so much for playing in my first BFCBB Hop!! Hugs, Darnell

  13. Both sides being beautiful I think you can say you invented a new technique - the two-sided, topsy turvy card!

  14. I am so enjoying this blog hop, seeing so many mistakes that I have made over time. Its good to know there are others that also have one of those days. Don't you hate it when you decide alright I cant use this, what can I save and in the end it all ends up in the bin and you end up thinking 'what a waste of ....time'. It was a very pretty card too.

  15. Oh, no!!! That's something we've all done, I'm sure! I have a bad habit of reusing the backs of things and sometimes it bites ME in the back end! Both sides are really pretty and will be salvageable. TFS!

  16. What a beautiful back and front! Pity you couldn't save it. I like a couple of the fellow hoppers suggestions to cut in half and have two card fronts! It certainly is up there with one of the best boo boos. TFS with us.

  17. Ughhh...that is so frustrating. I would have cut them apart and you would have had the starts of two beauties!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yup, done that! It sure would have been an beautiful back-of-the-card to sign your name, Krisha. hahaha

  19. I've lost count of the number of times I've done that! And I'll probably do it again - we don't seem to learn, do we?

  20. I've done a few scrapbook pages this way. lol It IS a lovely card for sure. I hope you savaged a lot of it. Was there a way to cut the front of the card off and just use the front and back on another card as a mat? I love that jar of flowers and I am so loving that watercolored tulip. Hugs, Brenda

  21. Oh dear, I can just imagine what you said when you realised it! Look at it this way though, you now have two card fronts ready to use!

  22. Two pretty cards from one - lots of layering onto new bases ... easy to make this boo boo Kirsha, might just have done this myself. Have a great weekend

  23. Pretty card (even with part of it being upside down (and Yes, I have done that same thing...MANY times!) Thanks for sharing.

  24. Ohhh, both sides are so pretty! You could have easily rescued that - cutting the thing in half and glueing both panels on separate folded pieces of cardstock, making two card from one.
