  1. Hi Vicky, I like your idea of choosing your top three products of a new release. The cards are great, my favorite is the snow globe.

  2. 2 one day?!! My you’ve been busy!!! My favorite is the ornament card. Just beautiful! I love to color with pencils but then struggle with a design! So glad you’re the other way around! I don’t think of craft color for Christmas but it totally works! Thank you so much for the mountain of inspiration today! Time to get crafting!!!!

  3. These are all beautiful and filled with great ideas and techniques to get me started on my holiday cards. I love the snow globe!

  4. I’ve added the mixn match frame die set to my wish list. Every time I see you use the “torn edge”die I think how much interest it adds to the design.

  5. I love seeing your top picks – and you are right, the embossing folder is pretty cool too. My favorite would have to be the ornaments though – I love traditional colors for the season.

  6. Vicky thanks for the inspiration with this release. All of your cards are gorgeous, but the snowman really made me grin. Thanks for all you do to motivate us–Altenew has done a marvelous job with this release.

  7. Wow! All of your cards are gorgeous! My favorites are the blue with white flowers and the ornaments!

  8. As always, I love all the cards you made! They are so pretty and show your creativity so well! But my favorites are the first one with the flower and the last one with the snowglobe. I really like the Altenew markers you used to color the flowers . I also like the embossing folders, stamps and dies used throughout the video . SO MANY great products!

  9. My favorites were the ornaments and the snowman snow globe . The snow globe looked like it was glowing. Am I imagining that?

  10. Wonderful cards, really gorgeous. The ornament set (beautiful red/white/craft combination) is looking pretty essential…

  11. Fabulous cards Vicky. This has made my choices for this Altenew release so much easier! What you have done with each set is spectacular. Thank you so much for the inspiration.
    Keep well.

  12. Hi Vicky
    Love all of your cards…the ornament one could also be used as a plum pudding with the top part used as custard & also a tiny Christmas Cake with the top as frosting & put a cherry etc on top….Thankyou for sharing your awesome talent ??

  13. All your design were so nice. But I really like the snow globe and the red ornaments with the snow dripping from them the best! I might have to get that ornament set!!! Christmas is my favorite time of year and I love making Christmas cards. The ornaments look so nice and would be easy to make several Christmas cards with them. Hopefully I will win a certificate and will purchase them as I am on a tight budget.

  14. Your cards are beautiful ! My top 3 favorites are the snowflake embossing folder, Lovely Ornaments stamp and die and the Floral Halos Stamp and die. Thank you for sharing the video.

  15. Wonderful cards!I really love the snow globe with the adorable snowman, and the ornaments are just beautiful!

  16. Great shaker ideas for this card and translatable to other cards. I am glad to see a character style snowman from Altenew, rather than the more traditional drawing styles. I like the halo with flowers – a nod to a journal page you did this year.

  17. Vicky – I could watch you create all day! Lovely cards. The darling red ornaments reminded me of taffy apples. The snow globe is probably my favorite (I used to collect them) as that snow man is so cute! Your videos are outstanding. No one compares to your artistry.
    Stay safe and well.

  18. Your top three where mine too although I love a lot more from this new release.
    Your inspiration is aweosme, I love them all.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful day.
