  1. Vicky, your cards are beautiful as always, but I love how you used the wax seals on your cards and not just on the envelops — even using the seal on an envelope as the focal point of the card! How clever you are, you never run out of ideas! TFS.

  2. Oh it’s a great idea to use dye cut leaves which will stay forever fresh. Am new to commenting on blogs so pardon if it doesn’t show up. Hope you have an amazing day =)

  3. I love all of these and especially the imperfect wax seals. That is the vision I had for them and I love the look of them on the cards! Thanks for high-lighting them! The cards are beautiful and of course up to your great standards!

  4. Hi Vicki! Love your work! Such great ideas for the ssax seals. Brings back memories from when I was young. My mom used wax seals on her Christmas cards when I was young. And no, I won’t say how long ago that was! ?

  5. Thank you so much for the tutorial about how to use the wax seals. I hadn’t thought about using them on the actual card. I love the effect. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cards!

  6. Such lovely cards Vicky! I’ve been interested in wax seals for awhile, & Altenew comes up with a way to make them which is great.

  7. Your cards are always so wonderful and pretty. I like how you used the sealing wax on the cards. I’m going to have to try it now. I use to put wax seals on my envelopes but that was 50 years ago!

  8. Gorgeous cards! I still have some of the wax from years ago when you would seal your envelopes.
    Thanks so much for sharing…

  9. Wow, what’s old is new again. I used to use waxed seals with my initials and flowers on them when I was in junior high school in 1967. My friends and I would write and send each other letters with waxed seals on the outside back of the envelope.

  10. Oh how well you instruct on the wax sealing process. Those are just a few of my favorites in the set. I can’t wait for my stamps to arrive.. Beautiful cards Vicky, Have a great week.

  11. Beautiful cards! Thanks so much for the tutorial on making the wax seals! I have been fascinated with wax seals ever since I was a kid watching them used by the aristocracy in movies. So excited that Altenew has provided us with the means to make our own.

  12. Dear Vicky, Every time you end by saying, “…and I hope your got inspired”, it’s right when I’m shaking my head and saying WOW! I can’t think of a video of yours that was less than breathtaking!

  13. Beautiful cards. The wax seals look so cool. I would have never thought of using it inside the card. That is smart.

  14. Such pretty cards and nice to see the wax seals on cards and not just envelopes. Thanks for the inspiration.

  15. Vicky, I just love watching you demo the products. You come up with the nicest new looks for cards and projects. These three cards were excellent and I love the examples of the wax and seals. Thanks for the inspiration.

  16. All of your cards are beautiful!
    I especially like the card with the flowers popping out of the envelope.
    The wax seals on each card go perfectly with the colors you chose.

  17. I loved your video Vicky! You could have gone on longer and kept my attention- your creations are beautiful. Your demo on using the wax and seals was so helpful and inspirational. I love the “imperfect” shapes- definitely gives character to your card. And the wax colors are so elegant. Thank you for making the video- so helpful for the visual learners.

  18. Beautiful cards! I love the wax seal embellishments. Even though I am generally very type A I love the imperfect seals.

  19. Such a creative inspiring way to incorporate the wax seals on your cards!! I LOVE it!! Beautiful color palettes and card designs…Gorgeous!

  20. Oh my goodness!!! Beautiful….. just beautiful! Thank you for showing a new way to incorporate the wax seals into a card. You really kept my attention and I loved seeing what you were going to do next. Thank you!!!

  21. Vicky, I am a huge fan of your channel and watched this video yesterday. I loved your use of the new wax seal with the flowers. Very clever. i love the new wax seals and cant wait to get my own. Thanks for sharing.

  22. The tiny envelope with a wax seal is really sweet. I have never thought to use was on the card….

  23. That was so much fun, Vicky. I never thought about using sealing wax as a design element. I love the little envelope on the front of the card – what a great idea!

  24. Love all the cards, the wax seals are interesting, my favourite is the envelope with flowers popping out and finished with the wax seal

  25. Beautiful cards. Leave it to Altenew to introduce me to a new crafting element; those wax seals look like fun.

  26. It looks like so much fun playing with that wax. I love your cards. That second one with the vase is my favorite.

  27. I never thought of adding wax seals on the cards.. I have the initial wax seals …so this will be a fun addition. I like the words as wax seals as well. Overall great cards …thank you

  28. Thank you for the wax seal tutorial- you explained the process very well! I can’t wait to try it! Your cards are gorgeous!

  29. I loved your video so much. I had never really considered the idea of using wax seals on cards themselves, but now I want to try all the techniques. You give me so much inspiration; thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into these videos.

  30. I love how you incorporated the wax seals into your cards… I never would’ve considered that.

  31. Vicky, your cards are amazing. Thanks for showing us all the ways we can use a wax seal. And, thanks for a great video.
