How-to video: Simply the best

Hi crafters, hope you’ll have a great week! A special card today and a GIVEAWAY!

I used Decorative Sealing by Manuscript in my card for a very special look. I believe that using wax seals on your projects really adds a touch of elegance in everything you do.

Check out those flowers! Isn’t this a gorgeous stamp? I used my copics to color them. And can you see the heart on the wax?

  3. So many reasons to love this card! I fell in love with poppies when I was in Italy with my husband several years ago and I love the way you colored and fussy cut them! I love how the sealing wax adds to the card. I have a K, but haven’t used it for years, used to actually use it for sealing letters. I love how you did the notches for the twine to go in, what a great idea and the liquid pearls makes all the difference in the world! And when I added my name to win it was my favorite number, what more could I ask? Thanks for this wonderful card and video and the chance to win.

    Hello, I always enjoy your videos! You are so creative. Tfs! I tried to place my name under the Linksy, but I don’t have an URL so it won’t allow me to play. I put in my name & email, but without the URL it’s saying no. I just wanted to mention it in case others are having trouble. Hugs Traci

    Oh my goodness! I haven’t seen wax stamps for ages! I used to use those when I was a girl and writing letters to my friends, but that’s been many years ago. I think I only ever had one stamp! I’d love to win these sets ~ never thought of using them on a card as an embellishment! Thanks for sharing! I always look forward to your videos!

    Πράγματι, η σφραγίδα από κερί, κάνει την κάρτα να δείχνει πολύ κομψή!
    Μου άρεσε και η ιδέα για τις τρυπούλες στην άκρη, που κάνουν τις εσοχές!
    Ευχαριστούμε!
    Καλή συνέχεια!

    I really liked how you only stamped the stems first, and then placed the cut out flowers, giving them dimension. I remember wax stamping when I was younger. It’s nice to see it come back around again. The little wax heart added extra sweetness to your card. It would be great to win one of the wax sets you are giving away. Thank you Vicky for another inspiring tutorial : )

    I really enjoy checking your blog for videos and inspiration. You impart a feeling of relaxation and enjoyment during your creative processes that many others do not manage to achieve and I always find something to make me think about the way I can improve my crafty efforts. (I also enjoy seeing your little helper’s fingers from time to time!)

    You are right about the wax seal, it does give your simple layout an elegant sophistication that a twine bow could not achieve. Thanks for the inspiration, and for sharing your art with us all,
    regards, Di
