Oh, My Stars

Here’s my card for this week’s sketch from Retro Sketches. This one came together quickly using stamps and dies from Lil’ Inker Designs.

Oh, My Stars-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lil' Inker Designs
I went with a star theme on my card, using Lil’ Inker’s stitched star dies and the coordinating Shiny Happy Sentiments stamp set. I die cut the largest star from a piece of chevron patterned paper, being careful to keep the extra pieces so I could reassemble the star on my card. To fill in the negative space, I backed the cut panel with a piece of silver glitter paper, then matted the panel with teal cardstock. The teal contrasts nicely with the mint card base.

Once the panel was in place, I stamped the “oh, my stars” sentiment beneath it in black ink. I finished the design with a trio of silver sequins around the star die cut.

Materials Used:
Shiny Happy Sentiments stamp set and stitched star dies (Lil’ Inker Designs); Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko); Spearmint cardstock (My Favorite Things); Tropical Teal cardstock (Papertrey Ink); silver glitter cardstock, silver sequins (Michaels); So Sophie “Family Ties” Giving Floral designer paper (My Mind’s Eye)
