Wise Kiddos by Stampendous - Card design by Frances

Hi, Friends!
Today we are showcasing a lovely image by Stampendous called "Wise Kiddos". They are so cute and very easy to color!

First I stamped my image on Cryogen White paper wit Memento Ink, then colored them with Copic Markers, and to highlight some parts of their costume I used some Diamond Stickles and Diamond Glaze.  Also used the Spellbinders fall leaves to die cut some leaves, added some pearls and ribbon.

Thanks for your visit, hope you get inspired!

November Guest Designer Karen with Whimsy Stamps, Copic Markers, Distres Ink & Spellbinders

Hi everyone! We're so excited to introduce our fabulous November guest designer - Karen! We are thrilled with her amazing work and hope you will be inspired as well. We asked her to share a bit of herself with us so here she is! And her stunning project is to follow.

Hi!  My name is Karen and I'm a mother of two boys, 26 and 29.   I have been married to my high school sweet heart for 32 years he means the world to me and supports my paper craft addiction. I have three four legged girls who are my best friends and enjoy hanging out in the craft room.

I really enjoy creating cards, books and different projects. I love coloring, as it is so relaxing. I also love to visit others blogs to see what people are creating or what products they are using. I am very honored to be a guest designer for 7 Kids College Fund!

Greetings, I hope everyone is having a great week! This is my second post for 7 College Kids as a guest designer.  I created the Christmas card with this adorable Winter Fairy from Whimsy Stamps. The holidays are coming quickly and there is so much to get done. This card is a nice addition to what I have completed to date. Below are the items I used that you can purchase at 7 College Kids Fund.

Stampendous Distress Ink Flower Soft 3D Project by Rhea

Hi everyone! Some of our DT have been affected by Hurricane Sandy so Rhea has graciously stepped in and shared another project for us. Today we're sharing this stunning 3D craft. I'm kinda speechless at the amount of detail that went into this gorgeous project! I LOVE how she stamped and colored the image 3 times creating 3 unique little froggie dancers. Then the way she built up the greenery with Flowersoft around the images is just stunning & really draws your eye in for a closer look. 

Do you create 3D projects very often? Please share with us your projects on our Facebook page so we can ooh and ahh over your crafty cleverness!
