social stamping blog hop with IN Colours and a fun fold

Hello and welcome to the social stamping hop for March.
...Wow How is it March already?

As the year rolls on we are getting closer to the end of the Annual Catalogue , which means the launch of a brand new set of 5 In Colours and the retirement of the 5 listed for June 2019- June 2021. I will be very sad to see Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray leave us particularly, but at the same time I am intrigued to know what the new ones might be.

I have used Pretty Peacock for this week's card- a fancy fold. This is the card closed

and when you open it - a wiper pops up with a decoration- in this case another butterfly.

Of course there's a little stamping on the reverse, and the envelope.

So we are all creating using In colours and I would like to share a Wiper Card with you. If you follow me you will know I love a fun fold or interactive card. As most card tutorials are for imperial measurements I always try and remake the card using Australian metric measurements and I have done this again today.

You will need

there are plenty of video tutorials for a wiper card and I found Dawn Griffiths the simplest to follow. The trickiest part is adhering the corner of the wiper. Be sure to only adhere it next to the first score line not the second ( I may have had to bin a few versions!)

I also had fun punching out a few smaller butterflies from the DSP. Sadly the paper is no longer available, but you can certainly purchase the gorgeous butterfly stamp and the thinlits. 

The Butterfly punch is on the retiring list but is still available while stocks last. 

I look forward to seeing what everyone else has created using the In colours, there are so many super talented crafters in this lovely group.I

If you get lost you can link back to Kelly's Main Page with the full list of participants.

Next on the hop this week is Kathryn

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"
cheers, Liz
