  1. Altenew just does elegant so well with each of their releases. As always, I love your cards. Your videos are wonderful that make even me feel like I can do that. Even more surprising is that when I try to create based on something you’ve done not only am I really happy with the results but my family even are enthusiastic about the creations. So satisfying.

  2. The two frames were what caught my attention in this release.
    I love the black frame.
    thanks for the inspiration.

  3. I love ornate frames like these for cards. My only wish is that they came with dies to cut them out so you could add extra dimension with foam tape behind them without fussy cutting. (hint hint)

  4. I am late to the game having just discovered your awesome products- I love your product line- so clean and elegant…The 3D embossing folders are amazing. Thank you ALTENEW.

  5. I am all about making vintage new again and I love these embossing folders! They are on my list now so I will be back to watch your videos

  6. I always wonder how to use embossing folders with designs like your frames. What great suggestions. I would ever think of rubbing white ink on the raised areas. I love your cards.

  7. Thanks for sharing 2 beautiful cards. I enjoyed your video . The tips about the blank triangle in your composition and the placement of the enamel dots and extra leaf was an aha moment for me. I love blog hops because I learn something from everybody!And I have beautiful things to look at.

  8. Love your cards today Vicky. Really beautiful. It’s another great release and I have yet another long shopping list. Thank you for showing us how to get the best out of these folders.

  11. I have watched you making cards so many times on your YouTube channel Vicky… but I still don’t know how you manage to pull off your project so effortlessly elegant just by using simple things like flowers and frames…

  12. Your cards are lovely. SO neat to take the ink around the edge of the emboss frame to highlight it. Never thought of that.

  13. Vicky — these are lovely! I always look to see what you do with a new release because you make such great cards.

  14. Wow Vicky, I have to try a black card with an embossing folder, I have done brown craft before but never black! You inspire me every time!

  17. Such beautiful cards. I really like the black card with the white pigment ink to bring out the embossed frame. The new embossing folders are amazing! TFS

  18. I was kind of wondering how to use the frame embossing folders. Bravo!! These are total winners and thank you for the clear direction on how to incorporate them in unique and beautiful cards <3

  19. Beautiful cards, Vicky! Love those two frame embossing folders, and how you got different looks with the black and white cardstock. Love that die cut flower, too…into my cart it goes! Thanks for your inspiration, as always!

  20. I have always had a “thing” for embossing folders (visit my craft room and I can prove it). 🙂 So these new Altenew “frame” embossing folders are really taking my eye!!!!! They are wanting to come join my other embossing folders and be a part of my “family.” ha-ha Thanks for sharing your pretty cards (and getting me in trouble.) 🙂

  21. It is amazing how crisp the 3D embossing comes out. It almost looks as if a die cut is layered multiple times, except the design is so intricate. Thank you for the well done instructional video.

  22. Stunning cards, Vicky! I love the frame embossing folders. It gives a whole new look to other elements! Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration! Stay safe! 🙂

  28. Vicky,
    I’m a subscriber to your YouTube channel and I absolutely love your style. You bring inspiration and creative juices into my craft space, when I don’t feel creative at all. I love the projects you featured on this blog hop. My favorite is the climber flowers die set. Please continue to share your wonderful projects on YouTube.

  29. Thanks for the great video showing us how to make these beautiful cards. My favorite is the black card. The white on the frame with the pink flowers on that black background is stunning. Thanks for sharing!

  30. The framed embossing folders are stunning! At first glance it looks like it’s been die cut! Loving the 3D effect!

  31. The white on the black embossed card really makes it special! That is a technique that I’ve tried and failed at a few times then gave up. I think I’m going to have to give it another try.
