What you are referring to is a consonant blend. This is different from a digraph in that you hear both sounds in "bl", "sn" and "st;" whereas, in "sh", "th", "ch" and "wh" the combinations make one new sound.

As Naomi mentions above, digraphs refer to consonant combinations that create a new sound. Some of your examples are consonant blends, not consonant digraphs.
