As promised, here is the 2nd class that we made at this month's card class.
If you missed yesterday's post, the cards this month all focus on the inside of the card, rather than all the detail being just on the outside! I make so may cards that are quick and simple, but it was really nice to do something a bit more involved and have that wow factor when the recipient opens their card!
When closed this card measures 4" x 4" and is made from a 4" x 8" piece of cardstock.
The arrows paper comes from the Naturally Eclectic Deigner Series Paper range and showcases some of the new 2017-2019 in-colours and previous 2016 - 2018 in-colours.
I have also used the Lovely Inside and Out bundle which includes the Lovely Words Thinlit Dies and Lovely Inside and Out stamp set. .
Now I will admit that this card doesn't photograph all that well and I'm still not confident enough to start videoing....but basically when you open the card it reveals diagonal folds with the diamond shape in the middle. It is very effective and provided some excellent sound effects from the ladies at class last night!
These are the products that I used to create this card...
Come back tomorrow to see the final of the 3 cards from this months card class...and my personal favourite!
One of my favourite things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the constant cycle of new products that I get to play with and share with you all!
The main reason that I joined Stampin' Up! is for their colours! Beforehand I would spend what felt like hours matching colours of card, paper, embellishments etc for a project but now that pain is no more!
Stampin' Up! have a base of 40 colours ranging from Brights, Subtles, Neutrals and Regals and for every colour you can have ink, cardstock, ribbons, embellishments, marker pens, papers and more! Every colour within a range compliment each other brilliantly and they are all lovely and rich!
As if 40 colours are not enough they also launch 5 additional colours every year that last for 2 years and these are known as "in-colours". All the in-colours compliment the existing base of colours really well and it's always exciting as a demonstrator to see what colours they will be!
These colours are launched with every Annual Catalogue in June and this year they have release 3 colours early!! You will be able to order these colours from the 1st May, and the additional 2 colours will be available from the 1st June!
I have really enjoyed playing with the 3 new colours and have added a sample below for you!
This year we have
FRESH FIG - a gorgeous rich purple
LEMON & LIME TWIST - a really bright lime colour & my personal favourite!
TRANQUIL TIDE - a deep blue/green
What do you think???

Have a great day!
