In the first card I am featuring the Strawberry Joy Stamp Set ( TNCUK | TNC ) and I also used bit and pieces from the Up in the Air Stamp Set ( TNCUK | TNC ), such as the clouds and the little bird. All coloring was done using Nuvo alcohol markers.

For the next card I used the cup from the A Cup Of Happiness Stamp Set ( TNCUK | TNC ) and with some masking I created a stuck of cups. Then at the top I created my own flower bouquet by using flowers from the Flowers For You Stamp Set ( TNCUK | TNC ). All coloring was done using Nuvo alcohol markers.

    Those tea cups are my absolute favorite!! Reminds me of the art journal page you did with tea cups! Love these happy, fun, colorful, bright and cheerful cards. Since I love to color I’m always looking for stamp sets that have bigger images that are easier to color. I like to watch people color as I find it relaxing; on the other hand, I really, really enjoy watching your process. If I were forced to choose one over the other then I guess I would choose watching your process. Thank you so much, Vicky, for the video and for highlighting these stamp sets. I didn’t know Tonic made stamps! Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

    Hello, Vicky,! Love these bright and cheerful cards! For me your current way of showing coloring is perfect. You show how you achieve the look while keeping the video at a nice length.

    Love both cards but the teacups card is my favorite (it reminds me of a prev art journal page you made —I used a similar design in my art journal and on some cards). As for coloring, I like how you show one or two leaves and flowers and then skip ahead to layout and techniques. I also appreciate when you share your thought process as you create.

    They indeed bring a smile on my face Vicky. I always love your cards and how you show to make them. My favorite is the one with the cups, that ladder standing up to the cups is so cute, I sometimes wonder where those little things that make your cards so special come from.
    Thank you so much for sharing and have a great weekend.

    Vicki, you just constantly amaze me with your creativity! I love the house with strawberries best. Well, maybe not. I love the cups too. A couple of years ago you did an art journal page with a stack of cups and that is one of my favorite art journals ever!!!
    Keep these little gems coming!
