Worth Checking Out + GIVEAWAY

Hello! This is actually Jennifer’s brother, Mike. I help Jennifer out from time to time with her tech stuff. Jennifer is taking some time off but said I could finish up and publish a few posts she had drafted and share some things she had been working on. Here you go…


Today I have a few things worth checking out…


(1.) My Favorite Things Guest Video – Today I am a guest over on My Favorite Things’ YouTube channel. My video shares some fun things you can do with their dye inks. They have recently changed the formulation and I am thrilled with this ink. You will be seeing me use them a lot more in the future as I just bought most of the colors and am getting great results. You can find the dye inks HERE. Be sure to check out my video HERE, also.

(2.) Winnie & Walter Kindness Stamp Set – I am so over-the-moon-and-in-love with this new kindness stamp set from Winnie and Walter. You can build the various words to create wonderful expressions of kindness. And those trees? So fun. Can’t wait to get this set inky! (See giveaway below.) You can find the set HERE and HERE.

(3.) Clearly Besotted Caped Cutie Stamp Set – Superhero animals? Yes, please! I am melting. Such fun images… can’t wait to color them! You can find this set HERE.

(4.) My Favorite Things Down To Business Stamp Set – I will admit it – I live in a house full of nerds! We love math and numbers and working hard. So this set just screams my name. Nerds unite! You can find the set HERE or HERE.

(5.) Pink and Main Hugs Stamp Set – One of my all-time favorite sentiments to use on a card is “hugs.” It can be used for so many occasions! I am excited about the large size of this hugs stamp set from Pink and Main. You can see it HERE.

(6.) Simon Says Stamp Spring Plush – I am still very much addicted to my felt sewing hobby. I have a few more videos ready to go that I hope to share soon. In the meantime, be sure to check out the newest dies from SSS. You can see them all HERE. My favorite is the sunshine!

  1. Thank you Mike for this post! Jennifer I hope all is well with you and your family! All these new products look great thanks so much for sharing them with us. It’s not new but I really recommend the Simon Says Stamp monthly card kit. It is always stocked full of great items! It’s so fun to get that box of goodies in the mail each month.

  2. First off Mike what a GREAT BROTHER for helping. You have done a wonderful job!! I’m new to card making (about a month now) and Jennifer you make it look so easy. You have given me so many ideas that I had to start an idea journal to keep them all. Every product is new to me and I love to watch your YouTube videos and then run out and see what I can find. I recently found the Ranger Holographic embossing powder in clear, not black and have been trying to use it on everything. I love the way it looks. I also love to see what stamp sets you have because my hand writing is not the best and I really love all is the quotes you have. Thanks again for helping me bring out my crafty side and spread a little kindness of my own!!!

  3. Hello Jennifer,
    Just recently I came across your favorite things videos, I am so impressed.
    I have been making cards and other crafts for sometime and wished I had seen these videos before I bought all the products I really didn’t need. I will be purging my craft room soon.
    Thank you for teaching me so many wonderful new things.

  4. Thank you for posting, Mike. I am new to the cardmaking craft, and really appreciate Jennifer’s tips, hints and videos. I’m slowly working my way through all the gems!!

  5. The Mama Elephant emoticons stamp is super cute. I think Jennifer could come up with some really cute cards with this set.

  6. Love the stamps! New to the craft, I enjoy the smiles that it brings. Started the secret random act of kindness at work – when I hear that a worker had to deal with a particularly difficult child or family I prepare a happy message tag to leave on their desk the next morning. Love watching the smile from the aisles. The same for a worker who has had a breakthrough with a child or youth – out comes the inks, stamp and ribbon. Thank you for your generosity in mentoring me.

  7. Thank you! Your website gave me back my love of watercolours and everything crafty! I was suffering from insomnia and anxiety one night and stumbled across your site. Watching your tutorial videos calms me and has brought back a creative spark in my life. I have now pulled out my watercolours and am diving back into this world that I loved so much! What is worth checking out?…..a passion from your past! Whether it be photography, drawing, painting or a sport….rekindle it! 🙂 You never know where it could lead you in the present or future!

  8. YAY Mike!!! You are obviously a GRRREEEAAAATTTT brother!! Thank you for your help. I have three brothers. They never help me in my craft world. Thank you Mike and Jennifer….you’re a great team. Happy Spring to you both.

  9. I like to window shop online to build my craft pantry. Watching Jennifer’s videos helps me to figure out what I need next for my new hobby. When I see Jennifer and other crafters using similar products, I realize that these products can be considered to be a “staple” for my craft pantry. I instantly go online and check out the places to buy these things and put them in my cart. After I am sure I will be able to figure out multiple uses for these same items (I have to get help with my creativity…), I go to the websites, figure out the best deal, and purchase these things. Basic necessities now…fluff and fun things later down the road 🙂

  10. I’m lovin’ that Kindness stamp from Winnie and Walter! I appreciate your help Mike and always look forward to news from your sister! Thanks!

  11. Hope all is well with you and your family. I’m absolutely lovin the Kindness stamp set! I adore Jennifer’s cards and get so much inspiration from her.
