  1. I love the Grateful card colors and the clean and simple elements on the card. And the wax seal is just beautiful. The hello wax seal card is lovely. Thank you. Have a blessed day.

  2. Love the idea of the wax seals added to the new pretty die designs. Thanks for the inspiration Vickie!

  3. Love your cards today. Unfortunately, this is yet another release that I have to have everything. Just love all the dies?. I haven’t used the wax seals yet. Bought them when they were released, but had forgotten all about them. Thank you for showing me a really delightful way to use them. I have two favourite cards today, can’t choose between them. The So Grateful and the Hello. I’m sure it’s the blues that make me love them more than the other. Just love blue ❤️

  4. These are gorgeous and you make it look so easy! I seriously want these wax seals and am thinking about it! Lol!

  5. I absolutely love the idea of using wax seals on cards. It really turned out to be an amazing and clever addition! I love the new Altenew collection and I love the fun way you used the dies! Great work!

  6. Saw your video and loved it. I have my Altenew wax seals and don’t use them enough. Goes well with all of the dies used hear. Great cards as always.

  7. Vicky, I have just been thinking about the was seals and your last video using them as card elements and lo and behold you put out this video and Sandy Allnock puts out a video about her wax seals! I think the universe is telling me something!

  8. Love these newest stand-alone dies, and I really like what you have done with them here. Simple yet so elegant, and awesome colors on the sweet buttercup! Thanks for some great card ideas!

  9. Beautiful cards and great video once again Vicky. I had never thought about wax seals, but it is a cool embellishment. More great products from Altenew!

  10. So pretty!! The peeking leaves looks stunning in metallic gold!! Also love the way the lattice looks as a background!

  11. Beautiful cards Vicky! What a neat idea using seals as embellishments, I’ll look forward to trying it out myself.

  12. I really like the look of wax seals on your projects. I have tried seals before, not Altenew, and had trouble. It looks like theirs is foolproof.

  13. love the idea of using a wax seal as an embellishment on a card. Never used them because I didn’t think sending them thru the mail would be safe.

  14. Somewhere in my stash I have a wax seal stamp of my initial. This would be a great way to make use of it!

  15. I’ve never used wax seals. It looks so neat on your cards. The blue wax is my favorite. Both cards are really pretty.

  16. Your cards would beautiful with just the dies and sentiments, but the wax seals add a perfect extra touch.

  17. Clearly, wax seals are making a comeback! You and at least two other crafters have featured them this week. Great cards! TFS!!

  18. These cards are so elegant and unique, yet they don’t seem overly complicated to make. The fantastic array of Altenew dies you used really made it easy to create designs that are beautiful and special. All three cards are fantastic.

  19. Beautiful cards and I love your use of wax seals. I bought the wax seal supplies when Altenew first introduced them but haven’t used them. You’re right. I’m one of those people whose been afraid to use them directly on my cards. I’ve also struggled with how to use them on my cards even if I make some ahead. You’ve given my some great ideas and the courage to finally give them a try. Thanks!

  20. I just love the Tropical Leaves and Peeking Leaves cards. The wax seal is such a nice accent to these unbelievably beautiful dies.

  21. Great idea on how to store all your wax supplies! It all fits perfectly! I love the look of the wax seals on the cards, and not just on the envelope. It really gives that handmade touch, especially if the sentiment is a little crooked! 🙂

  22. Hi Vicky
    Love these cards…Black & gold is gorgeous…love the Altenew dies…& the wax seal is so old world…love it all…hope you are enjoying your sunny days ..we have winter here in Oz but different temps everywhere…❤??

  23. Love those wonderful die cuts with their beautiful shapes and details and the use of the fun wax seal!!! Thanks for the great inspiration! Stay safe! 🙂

  24. Your cards are amazing! I’ve never used wax seals, but I do love your idea for adding them to the cards. Great idea!

  25. I’ve steered away from layered dies, but the Altenew flowers are so pretty that I’m starting to change my mind!

  26. As usual, your cards are lovely. I don’t envision using the wax seals, but the dies are great.

  27. What a cool idea. I’m afraid to send them on envelopes because I think they will fall off before they get to their destination

  28. I really like the look of these wax seals on your cards. I’ve never tried making them, but this is definitely tempting!
