A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

We Three Stars

The current Jingle Belles challenge is "We Three Kings" - nothing to do with the Three Kings but rather a card with three of one element.  I chose stars.

I sprayed a piece of black cs with a couple of different gold sprays - one that came out in a mist and one that made bigger blobs.

I die cut three stitched stars out of gold shimmer cs.  Then I stamped the vertical sentiment in Delicata Golden Glitz.  I am really pleased with how all the golds match so well.

Thanks, Jingle Belles, for a fun challenge!

Stamps - Impression Obsession sentiment
Ink - Delicata Golden Glitz
Paper - black and white cs, gold shimmer cs
Size - A2
Accessories - different gold sprays, Ali Express stitched star dies


  1. I love the effect of the gold spray on black. It reminds me of a night sky. The gold is often hard to match but how great that this worked out that well. Love the look of the Delicata ink for the vertical sentiment too.

  2. The gold shimmery stars are so pretty on that dark splattered background, Susan! You are doing great on getting those Christmas cards done!

  3. LOVE the gold sprays on the black card stock Susan!! Great background to show off your shimmery gold stars. xx
