Wow the dew drops are lovely! I love how you arranged the flowers coming out of the circle die too.
This card is really beautiful and you always inspire! The tulips are gorgeous and this card could be used for many occasions!
Happy New Year Vicky and thank you for the inspiring video. Your card is lovely
Live your pretty card!
Beautiful card. Love the idea of the window with these gorgeous tulips coming out of it and the dotted swiss cover plate added the perfect amount of texture. These tulips are beautiful. I think this may be one of my favorite Altenew stamp sets … at least until the next one is released. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your beautiful work and for the helpful video!
Great cards and video. Thank you for sharing.
I love your style, clean and sophisticated.
What an inspiration!
Oh my goodness I love watching you create cards Vicky and your creation with the Triumph Tulips layering stamp set is absolutely beautiful.
Your tulip bouquet is wonderful–just want to touch it!
Beautiful! I love how the tulips are peeking out of the circle cutout.
I love how you always have dimension on your cards, and how you showcase your focal image. Beautiful.
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and I’m wishing you and your’s a very Happy New Year as well. Also hope you had a good break (from videos) and enjoyed the time spent with your family. Tulips are absolutely one of my favorite flowers and I love what you did with these. As always, I appreciate the video. If you’re heading to Phoenix, AZ for Creativation this year I hope you have a safe and easy trip and that the event is one that is inspirational and a whole lot of fun for you! Wish I could drive up there (takes a little over 1 hour) to meet you and others to say Thank you in person, but since that’s not possible please know that you are definitely much appreciated. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
You really did an awesome job on your card! I love how you created the circle opening and layered the tulips inside!!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!!
This card is so lovely. The colors are bright and the water droplets add so much. So inspirational!
Ooh this is soooo pretty! I love how the colorful tulips peek out of the circle frame, the debossed background and the silver cardstock!! 🙂
I adore flowers & Altenew makes so many gorgeous floral stamps, I’m totally addicted to them! Your card is stunningly beautiful (like all your cards), so grateful you shared it!!! Hugs!!!
The card is beautiful! Love the bright spring colors!! Thanks for sharing.
Terrific card — lots of thinking behind it, which I love. And thank you again for your videos — they are always the most helpful
What a pretty card! I love the tulips popping out of the circle window, love the colors you chose, too!
Beautiful! I like that the flowers appear to be popping through the cutout. It adds so much interest.
What a beautiful card-love the colors you’ve used. Great new stamp from Altenew!
Beautifully created and so realistic! LOVE
Hi Vicky – beautiful card as always.
My husband and I were lucky to travel to the Netherlands last spring to see all the beautiful tulips. Looking at this card brought back many wonderful memories. Thanks for sharing.
Love the idea of the window with these gorgeous tulips coming out of it and the Dotted Swiss cover plate add the perfect amount of texture!
Thanks for the video and tips. Thank you for sharing and creating!
Beautiful card, so bright and cheerful. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Vicky and a very happy, healthy and creative 2020 to you and your family too. Your card is so elegant and beautiful – LOVE Altenew’s build-a-flower sets as they are so lovely and very realistic – just wish I could afford to have them all. I also love that Altenew grade their colours into sets to make combining of colours so much easier. I need to go to their store to see if they make the sets in mini cubes as well as the larger pads. Also, can you please tell us the lbrand and size of the little dew drop gems you use please. I’m not keen on the larger ones but the small ones look gorgeous on flowers and look just like dew drops. Thanks for sharing Vicky.
Vicky, amazing card and color palette. You are sooo amazingly talented and creative. Love your tutorials as always learn something and always inspired.
cute idea to go through the circle die cut.
Your tulip bouquet card is just so lovely and reminds me of the Spring which, at this moment, seems very far away from all the snow and ice we’re having! Thanks for sharing!
I love how you made the flowers pop through the circle window. Tulips are one of my very favorite – love this set! Nice work!
WOW, what great colors! So cheerful!
beautiful bold colours, thank you!
Another gorgeous flower set! Thank you for the inspiration!
I absolutely love your use of the new tulip release. Your bouquet is beautiful, and the fact that you have the flowers coming out of the center is awesome!! Soooo beautiful!
Beautiful card and great colors! I love how you made the flowers pop out of the circle. It really adds a fun touch!

Gorgeous creation! I love Altenew’s layered floral stamps! They make me look like I know how to color!
Another amazing card/work of art! Love the colors and how you made them pop by coming out of the circle. Reminds me of a bouquet of flowers wrapped in tissue paper!
Such a pretty card! I love the design. Thanks for the inspiration.

Enjoyed the video and your tip on darkening the 4th ink to serve as the fifth layer. I like the circle and the flower pop outs. Thanks and happy new year to you too.

So beautiful ❣️My favorite Spring flower ?

How delightful, seeing the pretty bloom coming out from behind the round window!
The depth of color/shadow and detail of Altenew’s florals are always so impressive as is your card!
Lovely tulips! I love the way you showcased them.
Absolutely beautiful work. Love colors used. Thanks for sharing.
Your springy colors look INCREDIBLE!!!!
Vicky, I really like the contrast of the dotted swirls surrounding the pretty tulips that you put on your card. Such a wonderful variation and the use of the gray really makes the tulip colors pop! Like they are ready to burst on out of the bud!
Beautiful card! I love the ink colors you used.
I’m not a lover of flower stamps (unlike you), but you certainly have a way of making a person want a certain stamp set! Your tulip card is beautiful (I do like tulips).
Beautiful flowers. Love your added water drops. Thanks for inspiring me.
Your water drops are a very touch. Your tulips are beautifully colored and the colors are gorgeous!!
wonderful new BAF for spring and you’ve created a lovely card with it, Vicky!
Oh my goodness!!!! These flowers have me longing for spring!!!! We cannot grow bulb flowers in Arizona but in my youth I had a yard full of tulips! So marvelous. ??
very beautiful !
I’ve just gone through the whole list of bloggers – thanks so much. This was an eye-opener – so many nice interpretations of what you can do with a stamp set. I wish I could join the monthly subscription, but it wouldn’t be a fit for me. I’m a procrastinator and the months go by very quickly.
Hope I remember to check out the winners on the 14th! 🙂
Thank you for the cards and the instruction.
Beautiful card! I like the crystal drops you added.
Love this gorgeous card you made Vicki! I can’t wait until I get this set in the mail. It’s so pretty.
Very beautiful card. I love the colors you picked.
I watched your video the other day when I subscribed. I learned so many tips. I’m a fairly new stamper and this is wonderful checking out all these blogs. Exactly what I need to learn more. Thank you.
