Teal and White Stars on Text Background

For the Papertrey Ink "Create Along with Us" July challenge, I chose the first project in this post by Nichole Heady as my starting point.  As she explained it, "Stamp any kind of text or sentiments and then add a bold clear embossed image on top.  Follow this with sponging with the same ink color you used for stamped text."

I like the results on my card today, and I'll try this technique again sometime.  Thank you, Nichole, for your inspiration!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) tropical teal, stamper's select white, and a striped print from PTI pure poppy (red) "+ white basics" patterned paper (retired).
  • Dies are PTI seeing stars (medium and small sizes) and stitched rectangles.
  • The sentiment "thank you" is from PTI fill in the blank, stamped with PTI tropical teal and pure poppy ink cubes
  • The stamped stars are all from PTI military stars (retired).  I used the backs of three stamps for my large stars, which are stamped with Versamark, then clear heat embossed.  The small star under the red sentiment is stamped with PTI Hawaiian shores (medium turquoise) ink cube.
  • After heat embossing my three large stars, I added a turquoise background with PTI Hawaiian Shores ink cube, using an e.l.f total face brush to apply the ink.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.

This came out so gorgeous! The repeated text in the background adds so much but doesn't take away from the overall feel. A favorite for sure!
