Awesome 18!

I think it is an Awesome stamp, hope the card lives up to it!
8
here is the  sketch that the Woodware team are following this week
52-April_2016
a very simple sketch for us, as usual, but I do like a sketch to get me thinking.
3
I have used Francoise's Awesome 18 Clear Magic stamp. I have embossed it with Grape embossing powder from Stampendous.
4
I also stamped the  18 on some textura card from the great 6 x 6 pads I love the texture under the stamping, this time I used the really pretty Ice Blue, which is a pearly metallic Frantage powder. Then punched it with the Huge Oval punch.
5
The greeting comes from the same stamp I have mounted it on some white card that I have punched with the fantastic (my favourite product at the moment, you may have noticed) Tag Top Punch I used the Woodware Mini Stapler to attach the ribbon, which I have zapped with my heat tool.
6
I have layered the pieces on to paper from the 6 x 6 pad Lavender Mist and again stapled.
1
I could only find orange star buttons
2
but they look great Frantaged
7
all of my papers have been given a scuff up with the Woodware Edger.
I am rather pleased with the finished results, I hope that you like it too!

Meadow Flowers - sketch

Kim showing off her talent with our sketch today
Kim
Kim has used Jane's Clear Magic Meadow Flower, it has been stamped and embossed in black.
Kim2
 Kim has stamped on some handmade background card from her stash. Kim is the Queen of Backgrounds, I think that she must have boxes of them just waiting to be used.
Kim has then coloured the flowers with Sakura Stardust pens and a white Sakura Glaze pen.
Kim1
The dotty paper can be found in the 6 x 6 Perfect Prints pads. I like the way that Kim has stamped and embossed the dark blue card that runs down the sides with a portion of the same stamp and coloured in the same way.
The fun Happy Birthday comes from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Birthday Assortment.
a great take on the sketch
52-April_2016
So thanks for visiting, and don't forget to keep an eye on Kim's blog, although she is a bit quiet at the moment as she is working on top secret samples!
