Imagine That Progressive Challenge

It’s not long now until Christmas although at the moment most craft challenges are focusing on Halloween or Thanksgiving. However Imagine That Stamps have come up with a cute Christmas image for this month, purrfect for cat lovers!

Materials used:SAM_2349(watermarked)
Imagine That Digi Stamp – Mistletoe Kitty
Polychromo pencils
scalloped circle die
white A4 card
Canson Mi-Teintes white paper
Do-Crafts Christmas 12×12 designer paper

Using the A4 white card I made a Z fold card blank then covered the top flap and the right hand side part with the designer paper. I managed to cut the paper so that the design from it went down the side and along the bottom. I printed out my image, and two smaller ones for ATC’s, along with the sentiment onto the Canson paper then coloured my images in with the Polychromos. I used the scalloped circle die to cut out my image and then drew around the outside edge of the same die onto the left over designer paper and cut it out with a knife to make a mat. I ran a black pen around the edges of the image and the mat before sticking them together. I then trimmed and matted the sentiment. Finally I arranged my two elements onto the card front and stuck them down.

The great thing about Imagine That Digi sets is that you get the outline images and the coloured ones in the same set, which means if you are not a colourist you can still make great cards with the pre-coloured images. The current challenge runs until the end of the month so why not join in, there is still plenty of time. If you enter this month you will get the image for next month free and so on for as long as you keep going. If you manage to enter every month at the end of the year you will have 12 free sets to play with as well as any extra freebies that pop up now and then with the challenge posts. So what are you waiting for, everyone’s a winner!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.


I forgot to say, I gave my kitty a blue hat because it reminded me of my youngest daughters blue Christmas hat, although hers was somewhat more sparkly!

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.

  14. Very cute card! So delighted that you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. A new challenge is starting today and I hope you visit us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word found in Jeremiah 29:12-13 and the Lord tells us, “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Have an awesome day!
