    Hi Jennifer!
    Nice cards! I was wondering if the mirror sheet can get dry embossed? I have some ideas for my xmas cards :)

  21. Just beautiful cards Jennifer. I really appreciate your comparison of the different metallic effects. I recently purchased some of the metallic stains, but I haven’t played much with them. You’ve inspired me!

    Love the way you colored the flowers & pop-dotted them.

  23. Ashley

    Great cards! That is the best Copic demo I have ever seen. You really make it so simple. I love the colors you chose and how they work together, even though they aren’t the usual combos I have seen in other demos. I feel more confident that I could delve into Copics now.
