Santa's List {Jan's Digi Shop}

Welcome to the Grand Opening of the JDS Challenge Blog

I'm so excited to let you know that I've been asked to join the design team of a brand new challenge blog, Jan's Digi Stamp Challenges.  The design team will feature the images of the very talented artist, Jan Mahew

I have used many of her rubber and digital stamp images in the past when I was the DT Coordinator for another company (which is no longer in business).  As a result of the store closing, Jan embarked on a new journey and opened her own digi shop, Jan's Digi Stamps.  Now you can get her eclectic, fun images any time you want!

For today's project, I created a fun Christmas card with the Santa's List digi stamp set.  All of Jan's files come with black and white images (both jpeg and pngs) as well as pre-colored images, which were hand colored by Jan herself, and various sentiments.

I used two of the images from this set as well as one of the sentiments.  I added digital paper to create my background "wall" and then inserted Santa, his bag of toys, and the sentiment to create my card front.  After printing it out, I colored the images with Copic markers and added a bit of Glossy Accents to his glasses and the candy cane. 

Now it's your turn to come play with us.  Jan's Digi Stamp Challenges will be held the first and third Monday of every month.  Winners will be chosen randomly and will have two weeks to collect their prize - a $9 store gift card.  (All the details are under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top of the page.)

Come get social with us:

Until next time.....

Awesome Christmas card! That sure is one long list that Santa has! I sure hope it is the Nice List and not the Naughty one! Love the color of the chair he is sitting in!

Spectacular card, Anne! Your coloring is superb and the holly paper was such a great choice for the background frame. I'm delighted to be serving on another DT with you. :-D
