Our lovely coordinators over at OWH have asked for "Friend" cards. I can do that. I find if I have some direction, it's easier for me to make a card for a certain occasion. Sometimes, not always. But I took this opportunity to play with washi tape knowing I needed a Friend sentiment. Easy peasy.
Unless you're me, of course. Oh, the washi part was fine; it's the stamping part - specifically straight stamping - that stumped this chump. I made four beautiful card fronts last night, then stamped all four of them crooked. Okay, I was using a rubber stamp instead of a clear one, so I must just be spoiled. Yeah, so it's not my fault. Sigh.
Tonight I decided to make four more card fronts, but this time I'd employ the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. It's amazing how that works, isn't it? ;/
Here is one of the four SAMJ'd cards:
Now, about the first four card fronts... I needed to save them, so I went into SYFY (Save Yourself From Yourself) mode and decided I could cover up the sentiments with another panel. And I did:
The other cool thing about this is I got to overlap the sentiment over the top piece of washi tape, and also have it stick out over the edge of the panel:
Since I saved the first four cards, I now have eight more cards for OWH. WIN!
Okay, I may or may not have received a few new items in the mail today, so I'm going to go play. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Cute and simple! :)ReplyDelete
It never fails. You make a card, you look at it and think all is well. You take a picture and go to blog it and realize you adhered something crooked or stamped something wonky. Love your fixes. :)ReplyDelete
great card - love how you can combine different patterned washi tapes :)ReplyDelete
SYFY...that's a great way to phrase it :) Most of my cards have such an element on them somewhere!ReplyDelete
I love that circle-patterned washi - the colours are awesome!
Cute washi friendship card :)ReplyDelete
At least the washi tape went on straight -- even in the closeup shot the distance between the tapes is impressively uniform!ReplyDelete
hee hee, half the battle is knowing how to hide the oopsies! Nice CAS cards :-)ReplyDelete
