  1. Jennifer, I just wanted you to know that this class is fabulous! I haven’t had much time to play yet, but now that the yard work is done, I intend to have some really inky fingers this week!!!!!

  2. Those shaped cards are STUNNING. I love the way you’ve inked the edges – you make we want to distress everything. Oh and another super video – more fun to be had this week, thank you for such inspiring ideas.

  3. Thank you for doing this class! I’m an experienced rubber stamper who sells greeting cards locally. That said, I have learned SO much from the first four episodes. And I had to acquire seven Distress inks, pearls powder, and a stamper. What fun I have had playing so far!

  4. What a great class this is !!! And the best tip so far ? The flippin’ fork thingie!!! I have NEVER thought about that and regularly burn or have substandard embossing! THANK YOU !!!!

  5. Jennifer, this class is the best! I had felt so limited in my use of inks, but now my creativity is unleashed. Just what I need on these hot summer days. Thank you Jennifer, Hero Arts, Tim Holtz, and Ranger. Now I’m off to get messy!

  6. Jennifer, so many neat ideas using embossing powder. I have to try some of them. I have a question, what is the dimension on your mini- cards? I can’t wait until Wednesday for some more classes. TFS!!! :0)

    PS Congratulations to the winner!!

  7. Great tutorials! Ranger U was sooooo exciting. I can’t begin to put it into words.

    You can really put a lesson together well, and I mention your blog to all my students that want to go back and learn a new technique.

    TFS! Keep up the great work!

  8. Love the diecut cards Jen!! They are beautiful!

    I am hoping to have some time on my hands to get them inked up with your class…looks like everyone is having a ball! πŸ™‚

  9. Again… I had to stop the video to say – embossing fork/handle?! You crack me up! It’s GENIUS! Seriously… Why didn’t I think of that?… Ok, back to the video. πŸ™‚

  10. Thank you so much for these terrific classes.
    The videos are so well done. I have learned so much! So much information, tips and trick.

    I also love the shaped cards you prepared. Absolutely gorgeous. I would like to try and make some.
    I read your explanation but I haven’t fully understood how you attach the front and back in a way the card fully opens.
    It seems to me if I add a fold in between them – they will collide upon opening and the card will not fully open. What am I missing?


  11. Loved this one Jen. Now a ? for ya. If you keep heating the UTEE and let it cool can u crack it like clear embossing powder? I know with clear embossing powder if you keep layering and let it cool you can crack it and it looks like broken glass

  12. Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks for these terrific classes. I have learned so much and am off to buy some of the Ranger tools and medium to practice the techniques you’ve demonstrated. I’ve always loved Ranger’s products and I am loving them more now! TFS.


  13. Great shaped cards…but how did you use a die cut and have the card fold? I would think that the die cut would cut two separate pages…I have actually been thinking about this since I saw the post.

    Love, love, love this video and cards!!! Your ideas are so fresh and well done. My daughter, age nine is
    over the moon with your ideas and wants to play with my punches and stamps.

    Also, I really love the small label cards too.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Sandi N.
