Oops! And A Do-Over for 52CCT24-18

Hello Everyone!

So glad you stopped by today!

I will warn you…this Post is lengthy!


Today’s Card is for a Christmas Card Challenge from

52 Christmas Card Throwdown!

Here is the Challenge…!


June stash challenge___Wood Background


I made a Card and then realized, I read the Challenge


Hmm, maybe I need to get new glasses…

Any way here is my Oops! Card!


It is my Oops! Because I made a wood item, not a wood background!

Here is the inside of the Oops! Card!


I added the tree to the inside. I played with putting the tree

at the end of the dock…but it didn’t look right. So the inside

got a little gussied up!


Here is the Card I will be submitting for the Challenge!



A wood background!!!

I took a piece of Wood Textures DSP and using the Woodgrain TIEF

I added the grain texture to the DSP!


Here is the inside of the Card!

I’M going to share, a new line of toys I purchased at the

Stamp & Scrapbook Expo!

This man was demonstrating this line called

“Local King Rubber Stamp”

The Company is out of Canada and it was amazing to see how

this man used the markers  right onto the stamps and then stamped

the image and then used his dies to cut them out!

It seemed that all he did was scribble over the stamp with several

different colors and then stamped and cut and…Voila’!

I perused his wares in the booth and found several “Nautical”

Stamp Sets and Dies…yes, I bought them!

Here are the markers and a Stamp Set and Die Set!



Love this one!

I made the Oops! Card with this set!

Here is another Set!


I like the ship AND the pier buildings!

These are just 2 stamp sets, no dies!

Loved the beachy feel and the net will make great backgrounds!


I am looking forward to playing with the rest of this line!

I will be sure to share them with you ALL!


Until the next Post…Many Blessings to you ALL!

  2. I love the look of you Oops card, beautiful. The wood is the perfect backdrop for your greenery on the second card. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT
