Sneak Peek and Video: Picture Palette and Thoughtful Banners


Hi Friends.  I'm so busy with the last month of our retiring products that I normally don't do too many sneak peeks. But when my pre-order of new items arrived today I simply couldn't resist creating a card. Well, lemme tell ya, I had so much fun making that card that I promptly made a second one, this time filming it so that you could see the new stamps in action too!

I also got my fingers inky with 5 new gorgeous colours today...yup, the 2016-2018 In Colours were in my pre-order too. Fabulous new shades this year - I think you're going to like them as much as I do!  Check them out:

Ok - on with the card. Today's card features two new stamp sets "Picture Palette" and "Thoughtful Banners". Picture Palette is going to be a blast to play with - I already have lots of ideas on how I want to use this set. And Thoughtful Banners, with it's coordinating punch is an absolute MUST HAVE! Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about versatile - there are 53 images in this stamp set so that makes for a lot of different sentiments. 

Here's the first card I made:

 I created a little banner, wrapped with a bakers twine bow.

Here are the supplies and instructions for the above card and the video with the second card, which is very similar, follows the tutorial:
