  1. Wonderful video, great techniques & beautiful cards. My favourites from this release are two that you used, those being the Plentiful Pines & the Poppy Garden.

  2. I never realized that Altenew had mask stencils for most of their stamps – great tip! Your cards are always inspiring!

  3. Once again your creativity inspires me! These are bright and beautiful and show off the gorgeous Altenew products perfectly!

  4. Thanks for sharing all those wonderful masking techniques. This is such a wonderful release from Altenew — I can’t pick a favorite, but I definitely want one of the floral sets that includes the stencils and dies. As always, all your cards are gorgeous

  5. Always with the Wow factor 🙂 Thanks for always inspiring me to try new crafty things!
    And of course for the chance to win fun things.

  6. Love your techniques. Using the masking and then stamping with the dotted swiss stamp was amazing. This is going to be the very next thing I try. Thank you. 😀

  7. I’m in awe of all the cards that you make and the different techniques that you you use. You’re inspiring which is why you’re one of my favorite designers. While I’ve been stamping since the early 1990’s, I continue to learn a great deal from you! I really like the Thanks card due to the colors used and the texture of the card as I like the 3-D embellishments which add that extra look and feel to the card.

    1. I have to agree with you Sheila except that I’ve only been into crafting from the beginning of the year.
      Mrs. McGuire is a truly unique, talented and avantgarde crafter. I love how she always combines new releases with a technique as well. This Altenew release is soo awesome those. I totally love the Plentiful Pine and the Regal Beauty Stamp set the most.

  8. I love the clean lines of this technique-especially the white flowers on the green and blue background. You are so talented. Thanks for sharing another helpful technique.

  9. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent. Love your cards. So many wonderful items to choose from in this new release. I will have to make two lists. One for December birthday and one for Christmas.

  10. You continue to amaze! I haven’t done much masking, but you’ve inspired me to not be so hesitant. I just have to remember the order. . .the one in the front is stamped and masked first! I’ve messed that up too many times! Another great lesson! Thank you!

  11. This is absolutely amazing, I have never stamped before, you make it look so easy using these tools!!! Gorgeous work!!!! I wonder if I can use these stamps on a curved surface like a tumbler? Would love to do those flowers on one!!!

  12. Beautiful cards as always. I love watching your videos, they’re so clear and easy to follow. Altenew stamps and dies are awesome, and those masks are incredible. I really don’t like fussy cutting and these masks will encourage me to do more with my stamps. Thank you so much for your video.

  13. Gorgeous! I really love how you coloured the flowers using blended inks across the card – a great look that’s a change from ‘properly coloured’ flowers! I wish all stamp/die sets came with the mask/stencil! Thanks so much.

  14. As always, your cards are wonderful! The videoes you give us are such a gift. I always learn so much. Thanks for showing off the latest Altenew goodies. I can’t wait to try them!

  15. Your new release videos are always so interesting and informative because you always teach such amazing techniques in addition to showcasing the new products. You have so much amazing talent!
