  1. These are really lovely. It’s always nice to have a great visuals for a technique. I have small embellishments we did one day with string wrapped around the edge of scallop die cut circles. It’s such a cool look.

  2. I’m so excited about this release. I love string art! I used to do this as a kid. You could buy kits and make great projects. I remember doing a hot air balloon. It was so much fun. I love your cards. My favorite is the heart. It has the look of real string art like I used to do. The stamp sets are gorgeous!

  3. What an unusual technique for a card….I haven’t seen string art in a long time, and leave it to Jennifer to bring it back to create some beautiful cards!

  4. I love the string art technique — my favorite is the heart. While I haven’t done stitching on my cards before, I used to love to do cross stitch. My eyes aren’t good enough now, but I think I could do string art on card stock. I’m definitely going to give it a try.

  5. I love this new release. Thoroughly enjoyed watching you make your beautiful cards, Jennifer. Thank you for including instructions on how to make some of your creations without having the dies.

  6. I love this technique and your beautiful cards! The String Art rectangle does are definitely on my wishlist!

  7. Wonderful cards Jennifer, it takes me back to my childhood when we used to this on cards, except Mum had to pierce all those holes! Thank you for the refreshing modern take on it, and well done Altenew!

  8. I have never tried string art either. It does look so pretty though! I think the heart string art you did on the card is my favorite.

  9. I adore these cards! I am a big fan of your work and as always you never cease to amaze me. I’m a crocheter so seeing thread mixed with cards is right up my alley. Thank you for the inspiration Jennifer!

  10. super cool. i also thought of the Tim Holtz piercing ruler for those of us that do not have the dies. i think that that would work as well but limits you to squares or rectangle. take care, Theresa xx

  11. Lovely cards! Can’t wait to try this technique. Thanks for all the beautiful examples and, as always, a wonderful video! Your work always provides great inspiration and your videos give your readers a chance to use your techniques to create our own artwork.

  12. Wow – string art – what a great idea to implement in cards. I love all your cards but the heart is my favorite.

  13. Beautiful technique! My favorite card is the one with the Grateful Heart Stamp Set: I really like the string border and the contrast between the white side and the flower with gems. So pretty!

  14. A second or third look means I want to try this.
    Love the Dot Botanical Stamp set and the String Art Rectangle Die.

  15. Thanks so much for teaching us about this other techniques. Love the stitched heart and the leaves stamp. They are all so beautiful!!

  16. OMGoodness! It’s been so long since I have seen anything that was string art. I used to do string art all the time, but hadn’t thought about it in ages. I love the look that it gives these cards. Something a little different. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  17. Thanks for another great video! I’m so glad Altenew came out with these string art dies. I love string art and look forward to trying some of the ideas you used for your cards.

  18. I enjoy you videos, you teach wonderful techniques and your instructional videos are so informative and easy to follow! You inspire me and I want to thank you for all that you do! I look forward to your new videos!

  19. What awesome projects!! Thanks for sharing these beautiful string art cards, you inspired me to take my embroider floss and give this technique a try.

  20. I, like you, love string art but have not tried it yet myself, I also love stitching on my cards! I would love to try some of these stitching dies out. Altenew is amazing with their ingenuity , always! Thank you for a chance to try these out! 🙂

  21. Jennifer’s cards are gorgeous, and her video explanations of techniques are really clear and well-produced!

  22. Hi Jennifer! I watch your YouTube videos so much I feel like I personally know you! Seriously, I watch you tons and try techniques I see you present. The problem is that I get myself confused on cards I was going to make, so I will be watching the saved videos so I can hopefully remember – and write down – the ideas I had. Thanks for all of your teaching!

  23. you have the best videos, I will sit and watch them for hours. I really like the new water color washi tape. I have a few stitching dies. I didn’t really know how they worked until I saw you use yours. So cute and unique options.

  24. This video is very easy to follow. I went to High School with the developers of the original string art. Wow!
