  1. These three cards are as beautiful as they are easy to make! The dies are definitely the star of the show, but I also really like the patterned paper! The first card is my favorite and I may have to get everything to make it! ? Thanks so much for these great ideas, Vicky!

  2. Lovely cards Vicky! Altenew’s new dies, pattern papers, a little bling, and your recipe come together to create some quick yet expressive cards. Thank you for sharing with us.

  3. Love these great simple cards. It’s always great to have ideas for simple but beautiful cards when you need to make a card in a hurry. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Great ideas—I, too, am trying to use beautiful paper I’ve hoarded for years ?. These designs are elegant and versatile, and showcase the dies as well as the paper. I love the celestial pad but hate to cover it up. Instead I used a large moon die cut set from Tonic to make a page and cards similar to your post on Simon today.

  5. These are lovely, Vicky – and easy! Thanks for sharing your talent. I have a ton of patterned paper that I should use up!

  6. What a great mission (to use up patterned paper)!! Since watching your videos I’ve been using up more patterned paper! Appreciate that. Thank you for the reminder making simple cards can be just as pretty and effective as something more intricate!! Thank you, Vicky!

  7. These are beautiful and would be easy to create, plus using up hoarded pattern paper would be a bonus! Thanks again for the inspiration!

  8. Vicki these cards are elegant and pretty easy to make, too! I love the one with the jade paper especially! Thank you for sharing so many lovely ideas!

  9. I love these cards!! They are beautiful and as you said, so easy to make and mass produce!! Love these dies and all the dies in the collection!

  10. Thank you again for helping me get my Mojo moving with these 3 easy beauties. Vicky, thank you for the years of enjoyment.

  11. I love dies; they are versatile and so much fun to use. Plus really quick to make something beautiful. Lovely cards! Thanks for sharing!
