All that Glitters …

Peace On Earth Challenge #17

This mood board had so many ideas to choose from and essentially combined two of them into my card. Obviously the bear was one and the 2nd was the mailbox. I used a variety of stamps from different sets as well as a Sissix folder. The main stamps are from Unity Stamps (mailbox) and the little bear is a very old stamp by a company I’m not sure is around any longer, Petaluma. The trees and mailbox decor are from some GKD sets and the sentiment is from Kaiser. The mailbox and decor were fussy cut. The bear was also fussy cut and is wearing a hat by Hero Arts and a bow from a Sissix Tim Holtz set. To ground the bear and the mailbox I used a Distress crayon that I smoothed with my finger and then added a bit of water. I coloured with glitter pens, inks and Inktense pencils. Although it doesn’t show I added a small amount of glitter, using a pen, to some of the falling snow here and there. Initially when I started this card I didn’t really have a specific design in mind so I let it evolve as I worked. I quite like the result. Have a great day!

  1. Love your adorable Christmas theme card, Johanna, and that you were inspired by different inspiration tiles. Your mailbox and Teddy depicted in the foreground are sweet. I have that falling snow embossing folder too and it creates a great background.

    1. I agree about the folder. It is good for winter scenes for sure. Glad you like this and thanks.


    1. He is so old and purchased before I hardly knew how to use a stamp let alone create what I do these days. I think some of my older stamps would really date me, sigh! Thanks by the way.
