Jan’s Digi Stamps August DT Post


What a year! Its August, and while that seems crazy, we all know the days this year have run together more than usual!!! Hard to believe, but its time to kick off another monthly challenge at Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenges, where its always a truly Anything Goes challenge! Cards, scrapbook pages, jewelry, sculpting, sewing, knitting, even baking… if you made it, you can enter it in the challenge. Be sure to follow the challenge to be eligible to win though! Speaking of winners, there are always 2 winners drawn… 1 from all the entries and a 2nd from the entries that use a Jan’s Digi Stamps image! So if you use a JDS image, you have 2 chances to win!!! For today’s challenge, I used a set Jan released last month called Wild Flower Blossoms and I couldn’t help myself… I ended up making a 4 card set with this set just to show you how versatile it is! First let’s talk about what you get with the set: 5 b/w images, 5 pre-colored images, 5 sentiments and a sentiment frame! Wow! Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself:


For my first card, I had to color up one of these images for myself as they are so beautiful!


Since I planned on making the card set, I opted to stick with a similar color combo. I printed the image larger than usual, along with the sentiment, on the same panel which I die cut with a stitched die.  I used Tombow markers to watercolor the images, adding some white gel pen details to the flower centers. I added iridescent gems that coordinated so pretty and affixed the card focal to pretty dot embossed paper from BoBunny.


For the remaining 3 cards, I kept the paper and stitched die detail the same, but changes up my embellishments, hopefully showing how versatile this set can be. My 2nd card uses the pre-colored image of 3 blossoms and a sentiment from the set. This card is embellished with Pale Periwinkle Nuvo Jewel Drops. I love how translucent and glossy they are!


My 3rd card uses the pre-colored single blossom, another sentiment from the set, and clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for an super CAS look. I also added clear shimmer pen detail to the flower center for added sparkle.


My 4th and final card uses the pre-colored vase image, yet another sentiment from the set, and this one uses iridescent rhinestones as the embellishment.

I was truly inspired by this set, and I know you will be too! I’m hoping Jan does more floral sets as they are so much fun to color, and she always provides such beautiful pre-colored images for when you don’t have the time or mojo to color it yourself. You just can’t lose! Time to hop over to the Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge site to see all the beautiful creations from my amazing teamies! You’ll want to come back and link up your projects too! And be sure to pop into the Jan’s Digi Stamps store where you can pick up this awesome set and check out the rest of her sets too! Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you have a fabulous day!

  6. wow girl you’re on fire! So many pretty cards! I usually prefer bright colors but your cards are stunning!


    • I really wanted to go bright, but I really wanted to make a matching card set, so I stayed with the purple but pumped up the saturation a bit. That set makes cardmaking super easy and fast. I may be using this set again in August just so I can go bold with the color!!! Thanks for the sweet words. I *was* on fire but its been put out and I’m having trouble kindling up a spark right now!


  7. Hi Karen! Your cards are so beautifully designed. The colors are perfect and of course, Jan’s Digis, well what can I say? I worked with Jan at SNS, and truly miss that business. Thanks for entering our challenge at Artsystamper Digitals Challenge! I truly hope we see you again


    • Bev, I used to shop at SNS back in the day when I lived in FL. I remember being there late one day and Margaret was showing my friend and I the vulcanizer in the back room. Then after moving to GA, I would sometimes see her at the Expos. Breaks my heart when we lose a LSS! Was so happy to be brought it with Jan, and while Donna Ellis was still helping. Donna and NC brought me in to 2 Crafty Critter Crazies, then Jan’s from there. Hope Margaret is doing well and that you still get to chat with her. She was just awesome. And I’m happy you have an Etsy shop to sell your designs! Best wishes!!!
