JDS-Patriotic Poppies

 Mid-month post for Jan's Digi Stamps using Patriotic Poppies.

 I kept this card simple for the message - in the USA we wear red
poppies to remember those who served for us. I colored my image 
with Copics, did a simple mounting on a die cuts and added one
small embellishment.

I hope you will join the challenge here for a chance to win a
gift certificate to Jan's store.

Happy Birthday Assortment


Some children's birthday cards I made for my daughter in law. I went with
a balloon theme to make choosing easier and tried to make most of the cards
neutral. The elephants are from My Favorite Things Adorable Elephants
set, the panda's are Stampin Up Party Panda's and the third is done with a
punch and MFT sentiment.

A few fun challenges:

JDS-Butterfly Frame


 Time for two new releases and a new challenge at: Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge:


I printed out the butterflies from the new set: Butterfly Frames on
watercolor paper, as soon as they came off the printer I
embossed them with Transcendence clear embossing powder.
I cut the butterflies out and then sprinkled them with
red and orange Brusho's.  My background is a blend of Distress
Oxides: seedless preserves, worn lipstick and mustard seed.  
The leaf die is SSS Fiddly Leaf.  I had cut out lots of it
from snippets of card stock and vellum on a low mojo day. 
 The grass die was also already cut and is from Amuse.  

I was quite pleased with this set and my card, if you
follow my blog you know I have a fondness for
