Calender {part 2}

Happy New Years Eve to you all!! :D hope you enjoy all the celebrations....
As promised, here is part 2 of my calendar, if you didn't see the first part, take a look at yesterday's post.
I'm entering it again for this challenge:

So, here's July - December:

Who doesn't love BBQ in the summer?? Well, this stamp is from Unity. It's called Retro BBQ, but I'm not sure.

I love this flip-flop die from Lil'Inker Designs....

I really like the autumn colors, especially the leaves :) These stamps are from the craft's meow.

My friend's birthday is in October, so I thought she'd like this. The die is again from Lil'Inker Designs. After cutting out the balloons, I colored them using Copics and then I drew the strings.

As soon as I saw this background paper, I HAD to use it. As it often snows in November, I thought this snowflake from Lil' Inker Designs would look nice.

And, last but not least, December is here! This die is from Memory Box. To make the wreath pop, I added some gold liquid pearls.

Hope you liked my first handmade calendar! I hope you all have a wonderful 2013!!!

within 10 minutes

Hello everyone! It's been a very long time since my last post. I was really busy with my new school but now I've got holidays :)

So, the challenge for this card was to create something within 10 minutes. It took me 9 minutes and 40 seconds to make this one. To save time, I almost did a flat copic coloring without much shading.

Stamps coming to life...

Well, not really, but I'm coming back to that later. First, I want to share some exciting news with you all: I got accepted at my school of choice! Can't wait till August when the term will ;)
My project which I'm sharing today is for this challenge:

 - Lawnscaping Challenges: Use dimension - I thought it would be cool to make a dimensional project (yes, I know that a card has a dimension too but you know what I mean), so I made a little purse.

And here's my purse:

Here are more views:

But that's not all! As you can see in the first picture, I popped only the turtle with 3D foam, but to make it even more special and dimensional, look what's beneath all the blue paper:

Isn't this little guy adorable? It's as if the turtle stamp has come to life, hence the title :) I really enjoyed making both, the purse and the turtle, the stamp set is from Lawn Fawn, Critters in The Sea. Thanks for stopping by! (:
