Based on what was included in the kit I am sharing 4 cards today and on each one of them I focus on a different product. So I have one with the die, one with stickers, one with patterned paper and one with stamping! All the cards are easy to recreate and you can watch the tutorial above on how I made them.

    Hi Vicky, I actually wasn’t to sure I liked this card kit when I first seen it online then I watched your video and I loved how you used everything! All of your cards as usual are beautiful but I think my favorite was the one with the boots die, I really liked how you gave it dimension.

    I love the card with pattern paper for a change. I struggle making cards with pattern paper but you gave an idea to use up several of my pattern papers. Thanks. I would love to win the card kit. I am a Psychiatrist and I make cards for hobby so it would be nice to get some higher end card kits.
    Thanks.

    Lovely four cards! You always amaze. Like the way you used the ink pads for “short cut” blending – neat ombre effect. Love those Altenew inks. Thanks Vicky, Denise

    I love all of them!!! I would have to say the one with the stickers. That was a genius idea. Gives me a whole new idea for using stickers on my cards that I tend to shy away from.

    Dear Vicky!
    I love these cards 🙂
    In the video, You addressed the issue with the stickers. I am an illustrator and I find it extremely difficult to use stickers because they actually often times make cards look cheap. But like you said and proved, it all depends on how you use them 🙂
    Thank you and friendly greetings from Slovenia, Josi
