Paintbox Poppets

Evening all hope you have all had a good day, mine has been a bit hectic to say the least, I had to go out but I shouldn't have it really took it out of me, but never mind..
Well last night I went through my Paintbox Poppet's cd and printed of a design, I must say it's a stunning cd, I started cutting out and glueing and sticking as you do, made the decoupage up and it looked gorgeous and I was really pleased, I pick it up admiring it and omg I was distressed how many of you have done it and stuck it on the wrong way it was upside down, Now wouldn't you think doing this before you would learn by your mistakes, I bet you do, but me! no I never learn, get so carried away but it's so annoying .I just couldn't believe I had done it again.
Anyway I sat this afternoon and re printed another one out and made sure it was the right way up this time.
I printed of a backing paper and co-ordinating paper and decoupage topper, I used some mirri card for matting ans layering, I also used a MS punch on the co-ordinating paper and used some dotty ribbon and little pearls.

So here is my card I eventually got right.It is a Mothers Day card Jodie and Nick's Grans, they always send them cards too.
So the challenges I would like to enter my card into are-

Ginger Snap Creations - Border Punch.
My Mums Craft Shop- Mums or Special Ladies.

I hope I've given you a smile tonight,I can laugh about it now but I was really cross with myself.
Thank you for popping by.

Hugs Julie x


  1. Oh Man! I've done that too ... luckily I'd used sticky pads and was able to peel them off quickly without damaging the card underneath. I've been "playing" with my CD too, looking yesterday and then printed some stuff off today and also did a Mother's Day card.
    Love this card Julie - it's very elegant. Helen x

  2. Gosh Julie I'm always sticking things on the wrong way then trying to quickly rip them off before they stick lol! Your card is so pretty even though you had to do it twice. Sorry to hear you have been unwell hope you recover soon xx

  3. I think we all make those sorts of mistakes Julie. Can you not cut the front off the card and apply it to another one, it seems a shame to waste all that hard work?

    This card is totally beautiful. It's beautifully put together and all the elements just come together to make a really pretty card.
