I love mermaids and this one by Stampotique is so cool- she has so much attitude! I decided to have a go at the Stampotique Designer Challenge this week- it's for a FLAT card...no layers *gasps* this is hard as I'm a layer girl!! Anyways I stamped the mermaid, masked her embossed so chicken wire with Crafters Workshop template and white embossing powder and then swirled on various Distress Inks to create a sea background! I stamped with Kaisercraft stamps on the edges of the card Numbers Background and Script and I stamped with a lovely HEro Arts swirly stamp too! I couldn't resist adding some STickles glitter! I coloured the mermaid with Copic Ciao pens!

So that's it...off to upload to the Stampotique Blog now LOVE their work! Happy Crafting! GlitteryKatie xxx

"Little things....

....please little minds,"  is probably very true for me as I've always loved miniatures; I've always collected miniatures, loved dolls houses and made mini toys. So I thought after my shrink plastic experiments the other week I'd try miniaturising a Bombshell Mermaid!
I used Mermaid Anchor stamp set and Lotus Garden set:

Tutorial details are HERE

Hope you enjoyed my project!
Happy Crafting!

Red, White 'n' Blue

As you may have noticed there's a little sporting event taking place here in London called the 2012 Olympics!!
Well everyone's feeling very patriotic what with the Queen's diamond Jubilee in June so there's lots of Union Jack flags and bunting around.
Emilie over on Merly Impressions blog came up with a patriotic themed card challenge- which I had fun taking part in.
I used some of the Collections from Kaisercraft including Check In and Miss Match. I used papers from Papermania's Portabello Road collection and some Kaisercraft stamps and a Hero Arts stamp.

Here's Emilie's Challenge over on the Merly Impressions blog, go look at Emilie's cool card!

Happy Crafting!
