Clean and simple Bday card

June is almost over and I really enjoyed my holiday spent back home with my parents. I was born in Sibenik and it has always been known for its International Children's Festival, so we came just in time for its opening and enjoyed many shows around the town's squares. Stella is still in Sibenik and is now part of a children's art workshop which makes her very happy, she loves drawing ... Some photos of the Festival's atmosphere are below, we enjoyed seeing many street performers and I am in awe how dedicated and skilled they all are

Back to usual, for our monthly Anything Goes challenge over at  I have given my version of clean and simple card made for my dear friend Ana's Bday. I just went as simple as I could .... stamping a sentiment given to me by my dear pal Tracie craft with SSS White pigment Ink on a craft paper, then used Zig clean brush to add some color to the sentiment, die cutting butterflies from Sizzix Starter Kit and then placing several sequins all over the the card ... Simple yet beautiful, at least to me ...;)


So join us again on a new challenge, can not wait to check what will make you :)

Back to reality now, love

June, my favourite month...

Dear readers, so May is behind us ... And now the favorite month of mine is here ... June. I really like it cause it holds birthdays of several people that I love so much and is also mostly full of beautiful, sunny days, sudden spring showers and also .... I got married in June, I actually married on my birthday, so double the fun, right? But I got way out of the real subject ...

We girls in Crafting By Design have new challenges ahead of us and I hope you will join us and show us your creations .... we have many sponsors and prizes and so if you are a type and crafting you wish to show your projects, this is a great opportunity ....

For our Anything Goes challenge I made two cards, using digi stamps of our sponsors:

first is  bugaboostamps  and I chose the stamp  Teddy-bear-block-trio  which is so fun and versatile stamp, a bear and a ladybug - such good friends ... I really think you can use it to create birthday cards, baby shower cards or just to say hello cards :) I used it with a sentiment that shows how important friends are and it is a sentiment by Crafting Desert Divas. I used it to remind myself that I have so many wonderful people around me who are there when I need them most! Friends are family that you chose for yourself and I am lucky to have them in my life, especially those in my crafting world, like Tina, Jessica, Stephanie, Irena and many many more ...

I just went the best way I know how ... Just cut out the images, colored it with my simply Graph Markers and mounted it on the white card on which I had stamped the sentiment in Simon Says Stamp Sunshine Ink and then placed it on a beige cardstock. I used Rabger Glossy Accents just to add some dimension ... Simple, yet true ... I am CAS girl and heart :)

Here it is the CAS result:


The second digi stamp is from lovely sponsor:  oddballartco  and I chose the digi called:  We are here for the Baby . Since I am more of the real stamp girl, I struggled a bit with dimensions of the stamp and the overall idea of what I wanted to use for the stamp and I am quite happy with the result, cause I made it in a hurry, trying to catch more sun outside :) Again I colored the image with my Graphit markers, blended Simon says Audrey Stamp Blue sky for illusion and used Janes' s Doodles  grass from her stamp set  seamus  well as her sentiment from the set  special-delivery . Several sequins are added just for fun :) Hope you like it:


Hope you like my projects, please comment and leave some love or hate, your opinion matters ...

Take care,

Your Majtolina :)
