Thinking of you

Have you ever gone to CASE someone's card only to find out you are missing supplies to do it? And where I live I can't just run to my local craft store and pick up the missing items. Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Midweek Throwdown this week is fall themed cards. I haven't been having very good mojo with cards involving leaves so I decided to CASE a card from PapertreyInk's own Nicole Heady. Her cards are ALWAYS perfect. Found out I was missing the woodgrain template and the mat stack 4 die (they are now on my shopping list for this month's release purchase.) So I substituted a cuttlebug folder and a different PTI die. I don't have their inks and couldn't find the right color combo in my own ink pads so I used SU! markers. The ink beads up on the acrylic stamps but for this stamp I think it was ok. I pulled out my embossing powders and low and behold NO gold powder. I havent heat embossed in forever and I am guessing it was probably one of those jars that fell into toddler hands and dumped. Overall I think it turned out ok. Still havent found my mojo.


  1. Pretty textures, colors and your card...thank you for sharing.

  2. Hi Stacie, I can relate to not running over to the craft store when you "need" something. Maybe that's a good thing ;)

    Your card turned out really nice, I love the colors and the clean look it has. Thanks for playing along with us at Operation Write Home!

  3. Very nice card and perfect for fall even it it isn't exactly what you first envisioned!
