card 1

For this card I used the Winter Wishes Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) and colored everything with alcohol markers. I created a window to frame the wonderful winter scene and added a sentiment using the Hello Winter Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) and the Hello Winter Die Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

card 2

For this flower card I used the Precious Peony Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). It’s such a pretty stamp set, and I colored the flowers again with my alcohol markers. For the background I added some white splashed and also used a piece of Graph Die Cut Tape ( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

card 3

For the third card again I worked with another flower stamp set, although this time it’s one of the layering ones. This is the Rosy Outlook Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). For the red rose I used inks from the Red Sunset Oval Set( ALTN | SSS ) and for the leaves inks from the Tropical Forest Oval Set( ALTN | SSS ).  For the background I used the Gradient Lines Washi Tape( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

  1. Beautiful work, as always! I am loving the white grid washi … it makes such a great background for flowers.

  2. Your cards are always amazing. I just love watching your videos. Earlier, when I watched the video I really couldn’t pick a favourite although the flowers had the edge. Having visited your blog some hours later, card 2 just has the edge. I guess it’s the combination of peonies and the beautiful colour combination which I think is similar to that used in your Bookclub card video. Loved that card too! Thank you for your amazing inspiration.

  3. I just love how your choice of the blue matt mirror cardstock sets off your lovely Winter Wishes scene and highlights the Hello Winter die cut! And I have not been at all intrigued by the tapes before, but you use them so effectively, I may have to give them a look next time I’m on the website. They really bring attention to your beautiful done florals. Thank you for such a nice stop on the blog hop!

  4. Beautiful! I’m not into the layering stamps, BUT that peony stamp set does look really great to color (which I love to do). And that blue paper from Tonic is gorgeous looking! I love silver and blue together — especially for holiday cards. Gives such a peaceful feel. Thanks, Vicky.

  5. The Peonies took my breath away. Such pretty colouring. Loved the effect of the washi tape on both the flower cards.

  6. What a fabulous release! I want every single item!! As usual you’re cards are stunning. Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

  18. Gorgeous cards. I still love that washi! I’m beginning to think I have Altenew withdrawal. I haven’t ordered anything for a while and I love these new products. Your cards are stunning. I love that foil card base on your Winter card. It’s stunning, and your florals are beautiful!

  19. Beautiful cards and thanks for another awesome video tutorial and the tips for coloring with Altenew alcohol markers!

  20. Vicky, all of your cards are so beautiful! You are so inspiring to me. You make it look so easy to make such beautiful cards. It’s hard to choose a favorite,but I really like the winter wishes and Hello winter stamp sets, they look amazing. Thanks for sharing your talent.
