  1. Love this! Thank you Jennifer! And I really appreciate the die cutting tips such a great way to expand the repertoire and use stamps in a different way. Be well 💖

  2. Jennifer Thank you for providing this idea in partial die cutting using distress oxide
    sprays on Tim Holtz Stamptember stamps & stencil Halloween cards in a different
    way! Thanks for showing the spayed backgrounds for each card!

  3. I just love these fantastic tutorials from
    Jennifer ! She always explains the procedure in a way that’s easy to follow.
    Thanks again Jennifer and please continue to share your new ideas ! Kim

  4. Not much of a Halloween can, but I can certainly see past that to enjoy those eye popping backgrounds. They are scrumptious! I loved watching them come together as you sprayed, stamped, smooshed and did it all over again! Thanks so much!

  5. WOW! Love the backgrounds and new stamps 🙂
    Want to thank you again for making videos as I like to pause them when trying something new you are showing. You are awesome!!

    **side note: do you have a recommendation for a sympathy stamp set?
    Thanks

  6. Love! What amazing cards! Saw them on the video showcasing the new stamp set and stencil, so had to stop by to let you know how much I like these! 🙂 Thank you for the die cutting tips. So much easier than the way I used to do this technique. Great backgrounds, too! I am having such fun playing with my distress oxide sprays! I look forward to your upcoming video with the sprays.

  7. The cards turned out so cute. Love the Distress sprays. The new TH stamp set is going to sell out quick. Thank you for the nice tutorial. It’s fun to see what these new products look like before we purchase them. They make great backgrounds.

  8. These cards with the Tim Holtz images are truly fun designs. Thanks for the video demoing the sprays and partial die cuts. This combination makes for great cards. tfs

  9. Great video, love the tips you shared in addition to the inspiration!
    My favorite background is the one done on black cardstock. I think you used blueprint sketch, salty ocean, picked raspberry, and wilted violet. Can you please confirm? The colors listed in video were for another background.
    Thank you!

  10. Wow, Wow and again Wow!! What a stunning cards. Your backgrounds are so awesome and the technique you showed with a the special partial die cutting is great. You are so clever using suplies over and over again on so many different ways. Thank you so much for showing this with us, have a great day and enjoy Italy!

  11. Jennifer, thank you for this video. You are simply amazing and I love learning from you. I just wish I had your tools but here in Australia some of these tools are just so expensive. BUT BUT BUT, I sincerely thank you for your training. Hugs and Blessings: Mal, Melbourne, Australia

  12. Dear Jennifer
    Thanks a ton for explaining everything in detail.Love the backgrounds you created using distress oxide sprays. It is my first time seeing it. I have a question for you. Is it practical to buy a glass mat as i am travelling between NZ and Sri Lanka. For a new crafter like me do u recommend buying the Works from We r Memory keepers. I fell in love with it but i cannot decide whether the investment is worth or not. Thanks for your love and kindness. Blessings to you and your family

  13. No card making for me today I am spending the weekend caring for my sweet granddaughters, Faith age 2 1/2 and Grace 3 months.

  14. The backgrounds are so cool, very textural. The dark cardstock one is my favourite. I don’t have the sprays but wondering if I could get a similar result with some water and some oxide re-inker… 🙂
