DIY: Valentine Card F-A-I-L

Confession:

I read blogs and I find that I compare myself to their genius and then I start getting down on myself because I think there’s no way I could ever be that caliber of blogger/writer/diy-er/crafter/photographer. That’s an issue I’m working through *uhthankyouverymuch*. But I always find it refreshing when people share their mistakes because it’s a reminder that they are human.

I made these cute Valentine cards with stamps I carved out of rubber erasers.

As I was carving a basic heart, “o,” and “x” I got ambitious (and a little cocky) and decided to try something a little more advanced.

I managed to carve everything without chopping a leg off a letter or butcher the middle of the “A.”

I was feeling very accomplished until this…

I seriously did not think about what it would look like until I pulled the painted stamp off of the paper.

This was too funny not to share.

And I like making people laugh.

Feel free to laugh.

I sure did.

  • Emily - This gave me a laugh. I didn't even think about it as I looked at your pics that it would stamp backwards, so I would've been right there with you. Thanks for keeping it real! ReplyCancel
