  1. WOW!!!! Vicky, these cards are just beautiful. You made me look at some of these products in a new light, and I love them

  2. I realy like the different styles of your cards.
    My favourite is the mighty wave embossing folder.

  3. Hi Vicky, I love those shades! You made a really cool card with them! Love your videos, keep up the good work!

  4. Wow! I love each and every card you created! The Spectacular Adventures was already on my wishlist, but you’ve made me add several more items to it.

  5. Amazing cards! There’s so much to love in this release and your designs made me want some products I didn’t put on my list originally. Thanks for sharing and for the helpful video!

  6. Love these so much. It’s fun to see where your imagination takes you with all these amazing supplies as you create these beautiful cards. Love the Be Brave card the best because of that embossing folder and how you used it!

  7. This new release is the best yet! I love everything from it. And Vicky, your designs are amazing!

  8. Every one of those cards are gorgeous, especially the 3D-textured embossed cards of the sky and “waves.” The sea gulls are divine! Thank you, I love this whole Adventures series.

  9. Hi Vicky,
    I love them all but if I have to pick a favorite it would be the sunglasses!
    So cool and different!
    All the cards are great ideas for Father’s Day cards.
    Thank you so much for sharing ❤️

  10. Wow! You really show the diverse nature of these products. Love the sail boat card, sunglasses, Diamond 3d embossed background… They are all fabulous.

  11. Wow, I’m so inspired by your cards and all these fabulous new products! I think my favorite is the sunglasses.

  12. I really like your cloud backgrounds. And my favorite card is the nautical one. Love nautical/ocean themes. The sunglasses card is a fun one and very unique. Thanks for sharing some ideas on how to use 3D embossing folders. I have a couple of them but haven’t used them. I feel a bit lost and intimated about using them and you’ve given some helpful ideas. I like the dry brushing idea! Thanks, Vicky

  13. Wow – more amazing cards and another great release from Altenew. Love those sunglasses and the stamps inside.

  14. What a great release! I love what you did with the products. I can’t wait to see what you do with the big hot air balloon journal page!!!

  15. I love the embossing folders! All of the cards are beautiful but I like the one with the sunglasses! So fun!

  16. Love all your cards today. There are so many great products in this release, so different too so I’m looking forward to placing my order ❤️

  17. Amazing cards Vicky! I think my favorites are the sailing ship and the gorgeous bird–the details are amazing! Thanks for the inspiration.

  18. Hi Vicky,
    Once again you have inspired me. I love every one of the cards you made and especially am in love with the 3-D embossing folders. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us!

  19. It’s hard to choose which card I like the most. You did an awesome job on all of them!!

  20. Vicky, your cards are amazing in their variety. I love the wave embossing folder card and the sunglasses (as I said on the video); you really out did everyone else with so many cards, so much of the release (well, I haven’t done the whole blog hop, or any of it except the people I subscribe to already so I don’t actually know that for a fact, but you certainly gave us several cards, a huge variety of techniques and styles — it looks like you were inspired and had fun! 🙂 xoxo

  21. Fantastic cards as always, love the new release and particularly the Let’s Go one, it’s gorgeous!

  22. What a lot of super clever ideas. I especially love the Spectacular pieces… I’ve never seen anything like that.

  23. Such a fun release with lots of possibilities! Glad to see some non-floral subjects and themes that are good for younger card recipients! Love your cards!

  24. Awesome new designs in this release! Love your cards! The ones with the glasses and the embossed wave design are my favorites!

  25. Once again I find myself ready to purchase something I would otherwise have overlooked because of your example. All of these cards are amazing and I’m now rethinking my previous aversion to embossing folders.

  26. Wow, wow, WOW! I am wondering if the Altenew designers are baseball fans? They sure have knocked it out of the park with this release!

  27. These new products are amazing! (I literally dropped my jaw when I saw the dimension created with the diamond-shaped embossing folder!) My favorite card, though, is the one featuring the sunglasses! What a clever idea! Not only do I like the way you colored the background of each lens, but I love the scene options! My favorite thing to view are mountains and trees, so the top pair represents me. My husband and son love the beach, so I think of them when I see the second scene. And our son lives in NYC so the last pair of glasses represent what he sees everyday. ?

  28. Your cards are amazing. I love this fantastic release and you’ve done a great job of showcasing it!

  29. Vicki, you started me on this journey as I was perusing YouTube and stumbled across your video (two thumbs up) and enjoyed it so much I thought I would see what the collective team did with this collection. Great video and certainly inspirational.

  30. Oh gosh, what a release. You have created so many amazing cards. The one with the waves gets the blue ribbon from me. I can just hear the crashing of waves when I look at it.

  31. Amazing collection of cards! I love them all, but that floral one with the textured background is so stunning ?

  32. What gorgeous cards you made! Such simple cards, but they have such impact! My fave is the sunglasses one….it is so cool!

  33. Beautiful cards! I really like the new stamp set “Seas the Day”. Fantastic clouds and water texture. And the cloud embossing folder is awesome!

  34. Your cards are beautiful, love the new products.
    You always amaze me with your imagination for making the most outstanding cards.

  35. Wow! What a wonderful set of cards!! I love the sunglasses card and the great 3D waves embossing folder!! So many great ideas!! Take care! 🙂
