  1. OMG – you take card making to a new level every time. I need to step up my game next year (all our cards are done and in the mail). I mostly used your birdhouse dies to make our cards this year – love them all!! Merry Christmas, Vicky!

  2. Love these cards! I can’t pick a favorite since I like they all equally!! The more I watch you walk through Stamperia paper pads, the more I’m liking them. So much can be done with them. I’ve seen this collection, but didn’t fully appreciate it until watching you showcase them. Thank you so much, card making Vicky and mixed media Vicky!!!!!! I didn’t make extra cards this year to donate (just didn’t get around to it), so I’m thinking to continue making cards to stash away for next year. Designs such as these (and others you have shared using patterned paper) would be great.

  3. Love your cards!! Beautiful!! Can you please tell me what the background script stamp is? Thank you….☺️

  4. Your cards are so pretty. It’s amazing what you can do with a beautiful paper pad. I love all the cards you made! Thank you for the wonderful videos you share with us.

  5. Fabulous cards with these awesome patern papers Vicky.
    My favorite is the one with the Christmas shops, so awesome to see how you did that.
    Thank you so much for all the inspiration, stays safe and
    have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Every one of the cards are amazing, but I really LOVE the Santa card. Really wish I was on your Christmas card list!! LOL

  7. Vicky your cards are amazingly beautiful! It’s impossible for me to choose my favorite. Just like my children, I love them all equally!! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
