From a "Mistake" to "Unique"

Hello friends! 
The Charming Doodles from Altenew July latest release is absolutely charming!
I am popping in with a quick post about turning a "mistake" around...

First, I stamped the flowers in various colors and die cut the flowers as usual. I decided to stamp the stems in black. I actually love the look!

thankful for you
You may not see my "mistake" right away....

You see, there is the "double" stamping of the stems on the top?
Well, that's when the mistake happened. 
thankful for you-002

With the card stock in the MISTI, I stamped my first time as usual. I didn't know the card stock got moved a little bit even though I did use a magnet to hold it down.
When I stamped the 2nd time...oops!  I was not happy about that, to say the least. But then I thought since this is a Doodle set and why not just double stamp all of the stems ?? 

thankful for you-001

The double stamping of the stems seem to give this card an unique look. I no longer deem it as mistakes any more.  Isn't it funny how things can change just by changing our perspective?
thankful for you-003

Hope you find today's card "charming"!

This card is adorable, Virginia! Good correction of a stamping "mistake", which rather than starting over added to the design. Like the black and white with the colored flower pops too! said...

Another gorgeous card! Love the stamp set and the double-stamped stems
are fine, not a mistake at all! Just a Virginia-added touch!

Pretty card and great way to fix this "mistake".

What a good "save" how fresh and clean it looks, anyway. And the colors just add the right amount of pizzazz while maintaining that fresh look.

Lovely Virginia. I would never have noticed it as a mistake unless you pointed it out. It looks like it was planned that way! All in all a very charming card!

The double stamped stems look like they were part of the original idea for your card. I usually end up tossing stamping that is slightly shifted when the paper "moves". Will try your idea when this happens the next time.

Great idea, Virginia! I do find that often my "mistakes" turn out to be better than my original plan! By the way--I'm really loving using the Sizzix Sticky Grid sheets in my stamp positioners. Seems to have the perfect amount of hold so no magnets needed & yet no torn cardstock.
