  84. I love your cards Vicky and also your comments while you create them. I miss your 1 kit 10 cards SSS videos and watch them again from time to time for general inspiration!

    1. 1 do 10 cards with the Spellbinders kit from time to time… when the fun part of creating the 10 cards ends then video edit starts and this process takes ages…. that’s why I avoid them.

  85. Love your choice of patterned paper and how you gave the house border dimension. Your fussy cutting is precise!! Thanks for the inspiration:)

  86. Inspirational as always. My friend in Portugal had never heard of you or Ginger!!! Soon put her on the track and she is now as addicted as me!! First response but chance to say thank you.

  87. Love the card you made with this kit…especially the coloring on the buildings. Thanks for giving us the chance to win this kit.

  88. I love your card! I feel the same as you about the markers and seeing you use those markers makes me want try those.

  89. I really love your card! And the kit is gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win the kit!!

  90. At first I wondered why you would only have a smaller strip of the background paper, but after you put it all together, it was so effective! A tip I think I will use in the future, I am sure. Thanks for the video, Vicky. Awesome.

  91. Great card, Vicky. You always do such a great job with these kits. I love the way you colred the houses. So summery.

  92. This is the cutest card, and I love the happy colored buildings. What a fun town that would be to live in. Thank you for the sneak peek, video tutorial and chance to win this amazing kit!

  93. I enjoy watching all your videos. Love the coloring on the houses.
    Thanks for all your inspiration and a chance to win this awesome kit.
    Have a great weekend!!

    Marianne x

  95. So simple yet so beautiful. I love your cards so much. Thank you for all your inspiration!

  96. Thank you for the fun ideas and simple ways to use the products from SSS. I’m so glad to know about the alcohol markers you used as I have not heard of them before.

    Have a great day!

  97. I am so inspired by your cards and journal pages. I look forward to each post you make. And I like the music you use in your You Tube videos. What’s not to like? You are the complete package.

  98. Vicky,
    Thank you for your card making demo! I am new to Card Making and your demo inspired me to want to make cards by hand and not just with my Cricut Joy. Also, I love the Alcohol Ink markers. I will be on the look out for these multi-color markers.

  99. I enjoy watching you fussy cut and using those wonderful markers. The card is so cute! I like the way you add dimension to your cards. I have been adding dimension to cards now and i love the look it gives them. Pops off the page. Thanks again!

  100. What a great card – love this set! Thanks so much for sharing and the chance to win!!!

  101. I had no idea that there were alcohol markers that were connected. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  102. Thank you for sharing your tutorial. You made it seem so quick and easy to make such a cute card! I really like the products that are included in this month’s kit.

  103. Hi this is a lovely kit of supplies, perfect for the summer season upon us so I hope luck for everyone

  104. I had decided against getting the July kit after seeing a different video. Then I watched your unboxing and card and now I have to have it. Long-time fan of yours–really love your videos. Thank you.

  105. First time watching. I love how you put this card together. Loved your choices and how quickly it all came together. Made it seem so easy. Thank you.

  106. Hi Vicky, such a good inspiration for a beautiful card as a result, I always love the SSS kits.

  107. A fabulous card! It was great to see you use the TriBlend markers. I loved the unboxing and the review of the kit contents. It is a great one!

  108. These stamps are truly different, like nothing I already own. I hope a die set will be created at some point as cutting stamped images like these will be very difficult for those of us with arthritis! Guess I’ll hold off buying the stamps until I find out if the dies will be available! Of course, if I win them as a gift, that will be absolutely great!!!

    1. BTW, the information shared about the TripBlend Markers did not say what type of ink that is inside the chambers – dyes or pigment. Miss Kris and Cristina Soutowood said they were alcohol markers, but are they really? They must have done more investigating at the Spectrum Noir Web site?!

      1. They are alcohol markers exactly like the Spectrum Noir ones, even the same color codes, same nibs, same refills. They just package them in trios for those who prefer them this way.

  109. Hi Vicky, love your cards and art journal, you’re so creative. Love all of your projects, it’s a great inspiration

  110. What a cute card! Whenever I see your videos on SSS I know I will be inspired, you have amazing talent and are so creative.

  111. I love how you left a border on the top and bottom — it allowed the darker paper to be used without overpowering the card. And your cutting out the images is inspiring!

  112. Live Simon Says and this looks like s real fun kit. Thanks for video and opportunity to win.

  113. Love the simplicity of your card, but it still looks like you took your time to make. I will have to watch you more often, thanks!

  114. You are simply the most enjoyable and talented card maker and media artist. Always upbeat and always beautiful work. Thank you!

  115. Vicky, at first sight I would think twice about ordering this kit, but you changed my view point with the card you created. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  116. This is the first time seeing the tri-color markers, and I’m excited to learn more about them. I love your card with Simon Says Home sweet Home stamp set. I thoroughly enjoy your videos. Thanks for the inspiration.

  117. You create some great card designs and I appreciate your sharing them with some of us who have trouble knowing where to start. Thanks for all your hard work.
