My wonderful team to the rescue...

My upline Jacque's team (which I am a part of) is known as the Creative Inkers & they certainly hit the SPOT with inspiration for card class last Monday.

My favourite set in the new catalogue is Baroque Motifs & at $46.95 it is great valuePLUS I fell in love with the new in-colour Groovy Guava - it rocks all right especially with River Rock (another in-colour for '08). Which is what the samples in the new Ideas Book have been created with but my very talented upline Jacque added some Always Artichoke to the mix in one of her cards which looked stunning.

The 2nd card Anne Dil prepared for our demo swap & we finished them off just after midnight on Saturday night in Napier. Needless to say I was too tired to get it right so it was rather fortuitous that I had card class in my home the following day & I could repeat (reinforce) how it was made. Anne's original card/stand was made using textured card stock but apart from that mine is the same design & colours which are stunning.

Groovy Baroque Rocks:



Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Card stock: Groovy Guava, Always Artichoke, River Rock
Inks: as above
Other: twill, hodgepodge hardware, sponging, spritzer (Cameo Coral, A Artichoke)

Anne's fabulous card:

Other: Clear embossing powder, Purely Pomegranate double stitched grosgrain, linen thread, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, dimensionals, 2-way glue pen, circle punch, lots of sponging & distressing.

Thanks "guys" they were a major hit.
