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".

Snowflakes on a Sketch

I'm not usually a fan of sketch challenges but the latest Less is More sparked an idea in me so I went with it.

I saw snowflakes when I saw the sketch so used a variety of sizes of snowflake dies with SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter cs.

The background is navy cs sprayed with a white Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.  Most of it got absorbed into the cs but a faint splatter shows.

Here's a close-up:

One more for the Christmas card fundraiser!

Stamps - Penny Black sentiment
Ink - Ranger Archival Cobalt
Paper - white and navy cs, SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Lindy's Stamp Gang Frozen Jack Frost spray, various snowflake dies, label die, fun foam


  1. What a lot of shimmer, Susan! A perfect interpretation of the sketch!

  2. Beautiful shimmer for the navy card, also love that sentiment :)

  3. Wow loving the nuit sky, glitter feel, to your card Susan. Lots of shine and perfect for those fluttery flakes... each one different! xx

  4. I would have never thought to even try and spray a navy background but love the snowy look you achieved. Great card for that sketch!

  5. So pretty! I can really see the white dots from the spray ... makes it so sparkly too. And love your collage of glittery snowflakes. Beautiful card Susan!! xx
