Today we are taking a look at a cardmaking color trend that's floating around the world of paper crafting; using neutrals with a spot of color.
Notice that I didn't use the term "pop of color"? With this trend, I've noticed subdued colors rather than bright or bold colors. In Stampin' Up! terms, these would include colors from our Subtles or Neutrals Color Collections. I've enjoyed challenging myself to follow this trend and hope you will be inspired to do so after seeing this video and these samples.
This video was a Premiere video on YouTube which is a series that I hope you will watch every Thursday evening at 6 PM Central. These videos will vary in length from a few minutes to an hour and will remain on YouTube if you aren't able to join us for the Premiere. However, if you are able to join at the Premiere time, you can participate in the LIVE chat if you are signed in to your Google or Gmail account.
If you missed it on YouTube, here's the video!
