The Heart Of Christmas

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Some new goodies arrived yesterday!
Wplus9 had a really fantastic release this month.

Somehow I smudged a little kraft ink on the L. 
 Part of me says, "Rip it off and fix it!" 
The other part of me says, "Leave it! Stop wasting paper, no one will notice anyway." 
What would you do?
See you later!

Cardstock: Vintage Cream, Kraft
Stamps: Wplus9 Iconic Christmas, Pretty Patches: Christmas
Ink: Simply Chartreuse, Kraft
Dies: Wplus9 Simple Snowflake, Seasonal Sentiments

  3. YAY!!!
    Got my goodies yesterday too...
    played a little last night...
    aren't they fabulous?!! :)
    LOVE this card in neutrals...
    really gives it that rustic, country feel that I think Dawn does so well!:)

  4. The card is so pretty. Don't worry about the smudge. I would not have seen it if you hadn't mentioned it!

  5. LOVE love this card Kara, those colours are fantastic. No worries about the smudge that no one will see. Like you I would probably fret. Don't waste paper because your card is beautiful!

  6. Beautiful card, Kara! I LOVE the Simple Snowflake die. I am trying to resist, but I am not sure I can after seeing your card. ;)

  7. Hi Kara! Pretty card! I love the layers on your snowflake embellishment and your perfectly stamped background!

  8. Great card, Kara! I can't even see where you smudged the ink. Sometimes, if this happens to me, I'll take a kraft knife and scrap off the ink.... and then go over it with a white eraser to smooth it out.

  9. My order came yesterday too and I couldn't wait to try something out either. It was such a fabulous release this month!! Your card is wonderful! Love the neutrals! Don't worry about the smudge. I'm like you though about fretting over what to do about mistakes. Trying to figure out what new direction to go with errors is just part of the creative process!

  10. This is amazing Kara! The smudge? I didn't even notice it! But I completely understand. ;) If I smudged it after it was done, it would stay. If I did it before adhering...I would cover the word in glitter. I'm too lazy to die cut it again! :)

  11. Love it! I like the muted colors . I must be the only one who did not order. I will !

  12. Oh my goodness...a kraft snowflake?! Looks awesome!! I love it with the love sentiment and then the tiny snowflake in the "o"!

  13. Love the craft snowflake. I would leave the smudge...that's part of it being hand made.

  14. Love your card, Kara! I couldn't see a smudge in the photo, but I've been saved more than once by a tip from Lisa (Poppypaperie). Use a tiny, tiny brush and just a dab of bleach. I use straight up bleach and just a little bit so the paper doesn't get soaked. HIH!

  15. how about using a white pen to go over the smudge? Believe it'll be less noticeable then.

  16. OH! i love your card! so sweet! :)

  17. GORGEOUS design and card.
    Hugs and smiles

  18. This has gone straight on my Pinterest board! I love everything about it especially the natural colour scheme, so lovely!

    Love Beth xx

  19. I don't see the smudge...that's what I call a "grandma" card, I send it to my grandma cause she won't see it either :) It's gorgeous! Thanks for playing along with the Dies and/or Punches challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!

  20. You have an amazing eye and your cards are so inspiring! *sigh* Love it all!

  21. Love your beautiful card
