  1. Your cards are so lovely that it makes picking a favorite very difficult! I think I like the first one best. Not only is the the peony beautiful but I love the cherry blossom inks that you used. (They are on my Wish List.) I also love the Be Kind sentiment and how nicely the gold matches the foiling on the flower!

  2. Beautiful cards Vicky. I love ❤️ Altenew products. Want to get more stencils this year. TFS. Hugs ? from North Carolina USA ??

  3. Vicky, I don’t know how you do it but your creations are always beautiful with every new release. TFS!

  4. Already have the Whimsical Peony in my cart! Hope it is still available when I am ready to order! Gorgeous cards!

  5. Dear Vicky
    First I want to wish you and your family a Happy New Year.
    My favorite is the Golden Days Blue flower card!
    Since I don’t have a foiling machine just yet.
    Thank you for the lovely tutorial as always stunning cards

  6. I love all the thought you put into your cards. The colors the backgrounds those extra special touches.. I learn so much from all your tutorials. Love these new stamps. Altenew never disappoints.

  7. Hi, Vicky –
    I loved all of the cards. I think the middle one (the stenciled one) is my favorite, but it’s a hard choice.
    Happy New Year!
