Postman cat?

Imagine That monthly challenge featured a lovely image of a couple of playful kittens in a mail box. Here is my take on it.

Materials used:
Imagine That Mailbox Kitties digi stamp
white stamping card
white and yellow card
Spectrum Noir pens
sentiment stamps
cream paper rose
skeleton leaves
cutting dies

I printed out the design and coloured it with the pens before cutting it with the die. I cut a slightly larger rectangle out of the yellow card. I attached both rectangles to the front of an A5 white card blank making them off set. I used a pen to colour the edges of the rose then attached it to the bottom left corner of the image along with two leaves. Finally I used two sentiment stamps to make up the greeting and stamped it at the bottom right of the card blank.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.


I would like to enter my card into the Imagine That Stamp of the Month Challenge


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

      Thank you Sarn. You are right about Spring, there are snowdrops, daffodils and primroses around all at the same time, and some of the trees are showing signs of waking up.

  4. Wow love your card. This is one of my favorite images. Thanks for joining us at Imagine That progressive Challenges.
