CAS "Best Wishes"

Hello! I tried to get myself out of my stamping funk and it took me 4 tries to get this card finished! LOL

#1 Stamped sentiment crooked.... How did that happen? I had "test stamped" on a piece of scrap paper to make sure my clear stamp was on the block straight.
#2 Crooked again...but only a tiny bit. This one will pass; I don't think a non-stamper would notice. Now I'm not sure if I like the choice of ink...gray. Also, I think I am going to go with another sentiment.
#3 Ooops! I stamped part of the sentiment on the striped strip.... Good grief! What is my problem?
#4 Stamped the sentiment first; thought this would be a good plan since I keep "wasting" good DP. Woo hoo...I got it straight! Now I am back to wondering if I should have stamped it in gray?

Did I mention I have been in a stamping funk? LOL

Sentiment: SU! Sincere Salutations
Ink: SU! Soft Sky
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: My Mind's Eye Bling

I am thinking that I can make some kind of flower to cover my stamping faux pas. I would like to salvage the cards I messed up...maybe another day....

I am really wondering if any of you other card makers have this problem? I am really hoping I am not alone. Please leave a comment and tell me about your biggest stamping mishap! It will make my day to know I am not alone....

Thanks for stopping by today!

Now I can comment. I tried 3 times and it finally let me. I love this card. I think it is beautiful. I have had so many mistakes I can't even remember any specific ones but the worst I do is crooked stamping and that happens a lot. I try to cover it up, repair etc.

OMG you can't imagine all the goofs I've made over the years. On this one card .. which was such an awesome teen guy card I accidently got a small red cs heart glued crooked onto the front. the heart came from a different card and I have no idea how it got on the masculine card but it totally ruined the card. and crooked stamping ...happens all the time! sometimes I just leave it!! heheehe! I love the end result of this card!

Angela, you sound like me! One of those days..I think your mojo is just out of practice--you'll get warmed up! Anyway, I think this card is stunning--love the clean and simple sketch and I def. prefer Soft Sky over gray, any day!
