The Tale of a Halloween Oops Card

The Tale of a Halloween Oops Card

Turning this Gelli print in to a card was supposed to be a quick and easy. Then there was an Oops thanks to my handwriting. Then another.

That probably doesn’t surprise you one bit. I make all sorts of mistakes, I mean Oopsies, as I play. It didn’t go as planned but every Oops was a opportunity that led me here.

Fair warning about this video: I use some ribbon and I have not been certified as a bow and ribbon specialist so I just wing it and add more glue!

Watch Oops after Oops on a Gelli Printed Halloween Card on YouTube.

You can see how I made the Gelli prints that I turned into this card in this video.

Supplies Used:
Rembrandt's Words stencil by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products

    Love the card – it was great to see it from the stickers on Gelli plate to finished product too!

    Carolyn, you inspire me every time I watch you. Your oopsies are endearing and your final product is always wonderful. Thank you for sharing your talent.

    What a fantastic card, Carolyn, I loved what you created from the witch prints, and the oops this time really added to it, that ribbon embellishment idea is great!

    Carolyn, will you email me? I sent you one on FB, but it probably didn’t get to you. I have something to visit about.

    Oh if only I had you with me when I make Oops, you are so charm, I just go into panic mode and I am rubbish mode! A great card.

      I so used to do that too Kathy! Thank heavens for mixed media and lots of layers!

    I love the Pigment IZINK you used. I don’t remember seeing you use that product before. I plan on checking out the ink.
    Love your BLOG and your YouTube videos.

    I am the person who measures, draws lines and cuts! I think I need to learn to try not doing that all the time. And I have more than my share of Ooops. I need to be more calm about them and learn to work with them. Thanks Carolyn!

    Great card. I loved the use of stickers. I have so many that I no longer need/want but this technique gives them new life! !!

    LOL, I like your definition of OOPS! I struggle with precision as well! It’s good to know that oopsies happen to people like you too! The card turned out great in the end!
