  1. I always love your card designs. I can’t decide which of today’s cards I like better, but I think the valentine’s card is the winner!

  2. My favorite is the Piece of My Heart die. So strong and elegant, and then you have that little detail of the XOXO. Playful and personal.

  3. Vicky, I always love your cards. I find so much inspiration watching your videos. My favorite is the heart card. TFS

  4. The heart card — what a clever idea!! I really like the white pigment ink bringing the embossing to life. Very pretty and fun. Thanks for sharing these card design ideas, Vicky. Enjoy your weekend.

  5. I love both of these cards but I absolutely love everything about the puzzle heart card. The little touch of the xoxo on the heart was great too. So perfect.

  6. As always, both cards are fantastic! I love the way the embossing looks when the white is added; it takes the design to a whole new level of interest! But the snowflake card is my favorite today. The new SSS stencil makes it super quick and easy to create the wintry scene and I definitely think it would be fun to see this design with pretty pastels. I also like the Snowy Greetings dies, even though I personally am not so thrilled that it is below freezing today in Pennsylvania! LOL. Thanks for the inspiration, Vicky!

  7. Such fabulous creative cards! And, die cutting the notches in the heart is an excellent idea.
    Thank you.

  8. I love the interlocking heart dies and the clever way your incorporated them in your gatefold card. You inspire me with your attention to detail!

  9. Love your cards! I love the snowy stencil in the blue colors….so wintery, The heart puzzle piece is so perfect! Great inspiration!

  10. Both cards are beautiful, but my favorite one is the Valentine’s card for you husband. The colors are so elegant.

  11. Love the Piece of my heart die and the Vine 3D embossing folder. Really made it stand out with the White pigment ink! ?

  12. Love the interlocking hearts.
    The “cold” card is great – temperature
    is in the single digets here now.
    Great cards. tanks for sharing

  13. I love both of your cards Vicky. But the Valentine is my favorite. Putting the white ink on the embossed pieces was genius! So so pretty.

  14. Love the Valentines Card you made for your husband. That embossing folder and the colors you choose are beautiful.

  15. The embossing folder and puzzle heart together are so striking. I love the embossed background for this card.

  16. Love your cards, Vicky! I already ordered the Piece of my Heart die, or whatever its title is… That is order #2 already from this release. It’s a superb grouping of new goods from SSS. Glad you were in the hop!
    Would love to win!!

  17. Wonderful cards. I especially love the first one — I don’t remember ever describing a card as beautiful AND fun, but this one certainly is!

  18. Vicky, your cards are so elegant, light and sooooo beautiful. We’ve got a snow in Lithuania right now and your created card with snowflakes is matched with my mood, because I love (belongs to heart card) snow… lot of snow ❤️ ? ❄️

  19. Wow-I really love the embossing on that first card-so elegant! And those delicate snowflakes on the 2nd card enhance the beauty.

  20. Gorgeous cards like always! ? Vicky, I had a dream this morning that made me think of you. I dreamt that I was moving to Greece! ?? Unlimited access to spanakopita! Yumm…. Warm hugs from San Antonio, Texas.

  21. Gorgeous cards Vicky, but honestly your talent is amazing! I just knew you’d be on this Hop!! I think you sold me on the puzzle heart.. just when I thought I didn’t need anything else from the release!

  22. Love both your cards Vicky – I think that the locking hearts is my favourite. As always, thank you so much for your inspiring videos.

  23. Two very beautiful cards. Love the snowflakes on the first and that fun card opening on the second. TFS!

  24. I love the addition of the white ink on the embossed design. I’ve done it before but quite often forget to use the technique.

  25. Ohhh! I love these cards sooo much, Vicky! ? I watch your YT channel all the time and looove your tutorials!!!

  26. Vicky, your cards are just stunning and very inspiring. I’m sure your husband will love his card. 🙂

  27. That puzzle piece card is so cool! Of course your other card is too… as usual your art is always awesome! I love this release!

  28. oh my – Vicki your cards are delightful – I am going to try out your heart gate fold card – thanks for the inspiration

  29. Interesting color combo on the Valentine. Love the snowflake card. We all have that one friend that loves snow. Thank you for the inspiration!

  30. Love both of your cards, Vicky. Great use of the embossing folder and the heart die. Enjoyed watching your video.

  31. You are one of my favorite artist –Love Your Work. What were the pens you used on Marlene’s Christmas Tree page – They were not paints-they were Markers you colored the Girl with.
    Wish I was your neighbor so I could learn all your wonderful works. Thank You, Mary
