It’s time for the 2nd challenge of the month at Jan’s Digi Stamp Challenge Blog! Remember, the challenge is truly Anything Goes… any project of any kind! The DT team is making papercrafting projects with one of Jan’s Digi Stamps latest releases, but you could submit an entry to sewing, jewelry, or even baking! Now let’s talk about Jan’s new image sets. In time for Easter, she released a set called Cottontail Easter that was so much fun to play with that I made 2 cards and still didn’t get to use all the images included! My card’s feature this adorable bunny (both with and without a bowtie!) which I printed in black and white but the set also comes with precolored images. The set includes a variety of Easter eggs, some plain and others with florals. I was sad I ran out of time to play with the floral eggs! Let’s take a look at the cards, shall we?
I used the (naked) bunny for a traditional Easter card. I used the Silhouette to print and die cut the images and added the included sentiment to one of the eggs for fun. The bunny is colored with Prismacolor pencils and the eggs, as well as the background, are ink blended with Distress Oxides. I used a stencil to create the grassy bottom.
For my 2nd card, I also used the Silhouette to die cut my bowtie bunny for a love card, perfect for just about anyone! This one was also colored with Prismacolor pencils and the background is relatively similar, but with the focus on the banner cut sentiment, also included in the set. With another 3 sentiments to choose from, I could easily have made another 3 cards, all with the variety of floral eggs!
Now, I would be remiss if I didn’t share the other new sets Jan released this month. Its called Block Sentiments and Block Alphabets, and as their names implies they are a variety of useful sentiments and alphas that look like blocks placed next to each other. I ran out of time to play with this set but hope to in the coming months! Jan is adding new sets all the time so be sure to check out the new sets frequently!
From here you want to head to the Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge blog to see how the rest of the DT used the new image sets. Then you’ll want to hit Jan’s Digi Stamps shop to browse all of her amazing digi stamp sets packed with images and sentiments in so many themes!
