  1. Oh my, Vicki – I’m crushing on this card in a major way! The eye-catching cup with the lovely orange heart certainly is the star of the show, and pairing it with the striking patterned paper, sentiment and sequin ‘steam’, adds to the WOW factor immensely. Gorgeous! As always, your video is an extra, most appreciated treat.

  2. Pretty card. I like the tone on tone for the steam and the addition of glossy accents to the orange to make it really pop!

  3. Vicky: I continue to be amazed with your creations! Your relaxed demeanour and how you make things look so easy inspire me. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us!

  4. As soon as I saw this stamp set I thought of your “take life one cup at a time” art journal page, and I love how you utilized the kit! The card is super cute and yet simple/easy to make. As usual your work is an insperation!!

  5. Just love the die that comes in the kit. Love all the added touches as well that you included with your card. Sweet!

  6. Hi Vicky~ I love your card and how you added sequins to the steam from the cup! You’re always and inspiration : )

  7. Lovely! Absolutely! I was kind of hesitant about this kit, but after all of the great cards in the hop I am looking forward to receiving it. Thanks for sharing, Vicky.

  8. I look forward to see what you will create next! This is my first video hop. I’m already excited about this card kit! Thank you for sharing. Your talent

  9. Hi Vicky, I was on holiday for some weeks and I have really missed your cards and creativity. I am happy to see them all on YouTube again. Thank you!

  10. Vicki.
    Another fabulous card and very well done video. I feel that my card making skills have improved so much from watching your videos. You are such a creative soul. Thank you!

  11. What a sweet card. Just love the sequins added as for steam. Love the glossy accents details. Thank you for sharing you’re lovely ideas.

  12. Thanks for the inspiration. Can’t wait to get my kit. I’m anxious to get going now that I see everyone’s cards.

  13. Ha ha, the cutting of stamps, and the comment they dont scream is so true, I love the card, thank you so much for sharing this with us 🙂

  14. Very nice card. I like how you used the tone on tone method for stamping the steam coming out of the coffee cup.

  15. Vicky you sound like you might have a cold or some sickness going on. I hope not. Your card turned out awesome. Thanks.

  16. Your card is so sweet I just love the way you created your mug and the background….you sure did a beautiful creative job. I am in love with all the colors. I just so am in love with this card kit……I could just picture myself enjoying one of my Kuppa Kuppa’s using your sweet mug.
    Vicky you are just so creative and talented your video was sure fun thanks girl for all you do!!

  17. This has to be one of my favorite SSS kits. I’m never without a cup in my hand, be it coffee, tea, water…. I haven’t jumped on the sequin bandwagon, but your use of them is perfect. I may have to reconsider. 😉

  18. Love the sequins as the steam coming up from your adorable coffee cup. Love the background paper and the solid brown layer. They really make your image pop! 🙂

  19. love the way you used the die to get two colors, you are so so creative, and the fact that you used the ink almost similar to the background to give the feeling of steam it great

  20. I love the bright colors you chose for your card. And I like that you added the orange strips to “ground” your cup. I don’t like when objects are floating on a card! Thanks.

  21. Very quick but very eye catching. I love the paper for the background and the design of the card. Your “table” is great.

  22. Thanks for sharing your card. I just joined the SSS card kit club several weeks ago, so,this kit will be my first and im so excited.

  23. I so love your blog and get lots of inspiration of your cards. I’ve seen almost all your video’s and love the way you are making your cards and your video’s! I can’t wait to see some new video’s and some new cards! Thanks for the inspiration!

  24. So glad to have found your blog and YouTube channel. Your card is great and I’m going to love watching your art journal videos. Thanks for sharing!

  25. Another super card. I enjoy your videos. I totally need to get a wink of sella clear glitter pen. Thanks you for sharing your creativity.

  26. You seem to always know how to balance a very busy background to your cards. You are very talented and that’s why you are my favorite …thank you for the inspiration 🙂

  27. Another inspiration, another lovely surprise….calming and full of happiness. Thank you and cannot wait for another one:(((

  28. Last hop stop-Oh! I have enjoyed hopping from one blog to the other. Thank you for sharing your card and the video. Very nice card.

  29. I love that you just “eyeball” the placement of pieces because I do that too! Love the table idea too. I never thought about my pieces just looking like they were floating before.

  30. Love your card. I like how you made the sequins look like the steam coming from the coffee cup. Love the papers you used.

  31. I used to try masking off my sentiment stamps but always seemed to mess them up until I saw you cut them apart, now I only have a select few that have escaped my snips. As always, love the card!

  32. I like your card. wasn’t crazy about the background paper when I first saw it in the kit, but I like how you used it. Just enough seen without being overly busy.

  33. What a cute set. Love the coffee cup. I have some sequins and now I have another cute way to use them. Thanks for all your great ideas.

  34. I love how you used the sequins for the steam coming out of the cup.
    This is a great kit for giving Starbucks gift cards for Christmas!

  35. Such a cute card! I like your subtle steam (with versamark, I think?) and use of the sequins. I’ll be CASEing your card when my kit comes–thanks for the inspiration!

  36. Vicky, I have been following your blog for over a year now and love your creating and ideas. This kit look fabulous – can’t wait for it to arrive!

  37. Ahhhhh!! I LOVE Vicky and her uber fabulous cards!! You have the cutest accent and I LOVE that you just used stuff from the kit instead of $800 worth of other supplies!! You are amaze balls!! (That’s a real word added to the dictionary my daughter informed me) 😉 thanks for being sooo creative and darling!! Xoxo Gabby

  38. I must say You are My Absolute Fav!! I watch you on youtube all the time. I am a Newbie and do not have a lot of the supplies but I know in time I will. Lil by Lil. <3 You inspire me to step out and try. Thank You for putting yourself out there for people like me! <3 <3

  39. I love the cards and your you tube channel! I’ve been a subscriber for a while and I’m so happy you are back from vacation and posting videos again. SSS has such wonderful products and you do an incredible job showcasing them on your channel. Thanks so much for sharing!

  40. I love all things coffee! I usually comment on the videos, I’m over here just in case I win! 🙂 It seems silly to me actually, but I loved your card — I would have been so daunted by that busy patterned paper but you made it look so easy! Beautiful card and I loved the sequined steam!

  41. How pretty!!!!!! I would love to win….I need cheering up. But I will enjoy hopping around to these great crafters

  42. I love that you only used supplies from the kit. When you get a kit, you don’t want to find out that something extra is needed. And this is a great way to build a collection for your crafting.

  43. I love the smell of coffee, especially when it is brewing. The colors in this set are so rich and perfect for autumn. I like your heart inside the cup. Cool idea to use sequins for the steam.

  44. SUPER CUTE card Vicky 🙂
    I ALWAYS enjoy watching you CREATE and listening to your commentary too – I think your brown panel was placed perfectly, the coffee cup and sentiment balance it perfectly!!! LOVE the shine & dimension of the glossy accents and your misty steam looks fabulous with the sequins!!!

  70. Hi Vicky,
    I think I might have already posted a comment on your YouTube Channel, but I cannot honestly remember….Augh…getting older stinks….my memory is like a sift…..lol I always enjoy watching you make cards. I love how you created this card and the colorful panel you used. I mentioned this in one or two of the other ladies in this blog hop about how I have a hard time combining patterned card stock. This October Kit has lovely Patterned Paper and you used it very nicely. As always, I enjoy your blog and YouTube channels, and your October Kit card. TFS 🙂

  71. Vicky, I follow all your card and art journal videos and have learned so much from you. Thanks so much and keep on sharing!

  72. Adorable card! I didn’t scream when you cut that stamp. I do it all the time! LOL Love the Glossy Accents on the heart and stripes.

  77. Vicky, your idea for using the new SSS card kit is great. Thanks so much for sharing, and for a chance to win a prize. Always love your work.

  79. Vicky, you always inspire me so! The subtle steam mixed with sequins seems like such a dreamy autumn drink to have sent to a good friend! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
