I Thank My Lucky Stars

This week's blogger challenge theme is stencils.  I used a star stencil and some embossing paste for this friendship themed design.

I Thank My Lucky Stars card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from WPlus9After the embossing paste I applied to the white paper dried, I used two shades of blue distress inks to cover the panel.  The stars resisted the ink, popping nicely against the blue background.  I stamped the friendship sentiment from the WPlus9 Lucky Stars set in navy blue ink next to the stars.  To bring in some contrast, I added a pair of narrow cardstock strips to the panel, anchoring them with a blue button tied with sparkly baker's twine.  The panel was matted on blue cardstock, then adhered on an angle to a navy panel on a white card base.

Materials Used:
Lucky Stars stamp set (WPlus9); Memento Luxe Nautical Blue ink (Tsukineko); Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean distress inks (Ranger); Night of Navy and Pacific Point cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Maya Road silver twine; blue button (Michaels); star stencil (Memory Box); embossing paste


  1. Absolutely gorgeous Lori. Love the movement the banners create on the card.
