Hello everyone! Today I would like to share with you the DT cards I made for the current Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge! You can find the most amazing images in Jan’s Digi Stamp Store and Jan is adding NEW ones all the time! This card was made with one of her new sets for March, called Birthday Buddies. Isn’t this just the cutest?!? The best part about Jan’s sets are how many images come in them… this particular set comes with 20 including black/white outline images, pre-colored images, and multiple sentiments. I couldn’t pick just 1 from this set so I ended up making multiple cards!!!
I *had* to use this super sweet image from the set. Not only do you get the image in both b/w and color, you get it both with and without a additional banner in the scene. I printed both the image and sentiment on the same panel, then used Prismacolor pencils to color the images. I contemplated making the critters fun, stuffed animal colors but decided to go more realistic this time. After assembling the card, I decided to make my own embellishment from scrap paper and Flower Soft (remember that stuff?!?) and popped it up on foam tape for dimension. I added a line of adhesive gems to the bottom to add more green to pull out the color from the patterned paper. Man oh man, were those gems fiddly, but I like how it turned out!
Next up is this CAS card using the birthday cake image and 1 of the sentiments. I colored the cake with Prismacolor pencils and matted the card front on coordinating patterned paper and cardstock. Quick and easy to pull off with these digi stamps. It would be even faster had I used the pre-colored image, but knowing 1 of my teamies would likely use that, I opted to personalize the color here and coordinated it with my patterned paper. I’m proud of myself because all of the patterned paper and colored cardstock came from my scrap bin! Whoo-hoo, making a tiny dent in the pile! I rounded the corners on all pieces, and added some adhesive pearls to finish it off! This one is my favorite of the 2 cards. 😊
There you have it! Now, take a moment to pop on over to Jan’s Digi Stamp Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT created. Then, create a project of your own… *any kind of project*… it doesn’t even need to be a paper project and doesn’t have to use Jan’s digi stamps… and upload it to the challenge. Just remember, to win the challenge you need to be a follower of the challenge blog! That’s it… and be sure to come back because you can enter up to 5 times and enter as many other challenges as you like! And be sure to take time to browse the Shop to get some of Jan’s fun sets for yourself!!!
Karen these are both so beautifully coloured. I love them.

Hi, Karen! Your birthday cards are full of cuteness and joy! Loving the use of flower soft… not only do I remember it, I know exactly where it is in my craft room! Definitely need to get it out and play. It’s been fun having time to utilize things from my old stash, and this will be one of them! Thanks for the inspiration. And thanks for sharing your sweet cards today! Hugs, de
Adorable card, such a cute image. Hope you get that little donkey you want. Thanks for the visit. x
