Default ughh ink splotches on your finished card

So you finish a card, all nice and pristine, then you see it! smack in the white area of the card ( of course) plus, you are in a hurry and don't have time to create another occasion card for the event you are going to! eih!!!!!!

What do you do? Do they make a correcting fluid type of thing for card making? I have tried erasers, and they make it worse. Sometimes I have just stamped a butterfly etc on that spot, but maybe you ladies have a better idea?

I haven't found any type of white-out that matches my cardstocks, so I usually go for a butterfly if one will fit. Or bling...sequins, pearls, a scattering of Liquid Pearls...
Sometimes some very careful sanding or scraping with a scalpel will do the job, but that depends a lot on what type of cardstock it is whether it improves it or just looks worse afterwards. I'm sorry for you - but I think it's happened to all of us.

Yelp! Add a pearl, bling, dots of stickles, bow, etc. When I first began cardmaking, I was told, "there are no mistakes, just embellishment opportunities."

This just happened to me last night and the eraser made it worse since the paper was cream and the spot is now white, so I added two small stamped images, one above the other since my ink was on the left side of the card not in the middle. Usually I add some bling or enamel dots.

I don't have the detailing tool, but plan to get it.

So far I have been using the Tombow Mono Sand eraser that Jennifer used before she got the detailing tool. It works well...sand/erase gently until smudge is gone. I use white CS 95% of the time and never have issues with seeing the erasure.

I got one at Ali Express and it works beautifully. But I haven't used it for large blotches, only small and medium ones. Here's mine. (Wow, that's some long link!) There are others at Ali Express now that are even cheaper:

At the very end I got a dot of black ink on a white 3D pizza box card that took a long time to make (measurements!), and I didn’t have extra previously made Distress Oxide/photo paper for the balloons. I covered the dot with a stamped star or burst, stamping more on the top, inside and the edge to look on purpose. Two pics in my gallery.

I’ve used a sand eraser and another hard rubbery eraser (don’t know its name) and sometimes they’ve worked, sometimes not. My electric eraser died but it was old.

ugh. Yeah, been there, done that. So upsetting.

another sand eraser here. but I just buff it gently to avoid too much surface mess. and then the fall back is bling. If I have not attached my sentiment yet I might put it there..including switching to a circle from a strip.
there is white out but I dont think it matches and really wont cover it. (I dont even know why we still have it-it does not cover anything in my mind) tiny ones maybe you could use a white gel pen....or maybe a metallic pen and make a few dots?

I am sooo glad I am not alone with this problem! Thank you , I thought it was just me.

I saw that Jenny McGuire video and I found a similar electric eraser on AMazon, but it made it worst. Did I get a bad eraser?

If it made it worse, is it possible the ink was still wet so smeared? Or maybe too much pressure? You want an extremely light touch. The eraser also needs to be clean before use. You can run it on a clean piece of scrap paper.

You can look at a reviews on Amazon to see if there was a common problem.

Hobby Lobby has a Master's Touch brand of the same battery eraser, and you can use the coupon on it - just in case anyone is still looking.

I've used a sand eraser successfully if it's just a surface smudge.

Gesso works sometimes.

Another vote for the sand eraser. OK, it doesn't always work, but it certainly does the job well. I find using it gently, in first one direction, then the other is best. I have some very old Jones Tones confetti dots that I have used to camouflage spots, also Stickles, Liquid Pearls, gems, etc. But my go to is the sand eraser.

I use a very fine sanding pad (made for nails - almost no grit). Works OK if ink has not gone below a layer or two of the CS. Leaves no frayed edge.

I use the Tombow sand eraser tool. It works most of the time and I also have covered the spot with a white paint pen by just dabbing it on until it is covered. If neither of those methods work I add extra pearls or rhinestones to make it look as if it was always part of the design to add them. Or try to stamp an image over the area to cover it.

I forgot to mention sometimes using the white marker to try and cover up. Again, sometimes it works, sometimes not.

I’ve used a sand eraser and it works for smaller, lighter or less deep spots. I got Distress oxide on a card, pink over yellow, and there was no way I could sand it off because 1) the ink was very wet so the fingerprint soaked in 2) I risked removing the base layer of yellow and changing the texture of the paper so more yellow ink would look different.

I did mask some of it by adding more yellow ink (3 layers but still not enough) so in the end I covered it with a sequin. Of course I added more sequins, not just the one. In some cases a small die cut will cover it up and any dimensional paint like Nuvo drops or Liquid Pearls will cover it. If it’s near the edge some sponging might cover it. Or a small border. There are pearls, gems etc depending on the design. Sometimes some ribbon or twine works.

I don’t really understand how a regular eraser would remove ink. I looked into the detailer Jennifer McG recommends but it’s just a normal eraser that shouldn’t remove ink. I can only guess that by using it long enough it wears away a tiny bit of the paper? I have an excellent one but haven’t tried it on an ink smudge.

They spin pretty fast, so there's more friction than you can apply with your hand - still though - it's just a regular eraser and that type tends to be soft as well.

Hi. I've used the motorized eraser promoted by Jennifer McGuire. It works well on dye ink and doesn't leave a spot---but if the ink spot dry and large you are better off looking for a BIG butterfly to cover it. Sand erasers work too but can leave a mess behind.
I just finished a Halloween card that took an hour to make and two hours to clean up. I guess that's part of learning, but I've had my scary story early.

I've used the motorized eraser (Jennifer McGuire recommendation) as well. Worked fine on a small spot. Have also tried the sand eraser, but apparently I have a heavy hand so I usually wasn't happy with the outcome. Some cards artists say tried the eraser first and then if there's still a small spot you could use a white gel pen (or white marker). Done that. Not perfect either but sometimes it looked ok enough. My embellishment of choice is usually Nuvo drops but depends on the size of the spot. Welcome to crafting. I tell people all the time that card making is forcing me to be less of a perfectionist. LOL.

I recently used my Battery operated eraser to removed stray dots of foil on a cream colored envelope. It did not damage the finish of the paper, and I successfully removed the stray foil. I don't have the kind Jennifer McGuire has. I bought mine from the art section of Hobby Lobby. The price point is cheaper than the Couture Creations. I read that some were not successful in using this type of eraser. I haven't encountered any problems yet. I don't know if being light handed and letting the rotation motion of the eraser do its job are the tricks to using it without damaging the area.

Hobby Lobby also has one of those eraser tools for 9.95. I got mine for half off when they had 50 per cent off their Paper Studio line. I also got the package of refills for 2.00 which were half off .

I just did a card yesterday & the ink got smudged where I didn't want it, AND the water color bleeding I wanted went too far. LOL (Experimenting on Christmas Cards...) Well, I covered some with sequins & the other with another image (tree). The others....? Well, it IS a handmade card! LOL It just adds character & uniqueness! No one can "copy" those marks! LOL (AND for now, it is a "sample!") It did show me though, the troubles I will have when I do more in assembly line.... STILL EXPERIMENTING HERE! <3

Spinny eraser thing, sand eraser, or white gel pen.
If none of those work, yep it's time for some bling! Sequins are larger and cover more of the bigger oopsies.

If they are tiny blotches, I grab for Stampin Up's itty bitty background stamp with the random spots and add some more in a color that fits the card. Also adding a little bit of stenciling will cover up blothed. Sometimes the blotches might be next to a stamped sentiment, in this case I stamp the sentiment on an extra piece of paper and attach to the card over the mistake, or again use the itty bitty background stamp. Over the years I learned how to deal with those types of mistakes so I no longer throw things out.
