  1. YAY! I’m first to comment! These stencils are absolutely brilliant! I need to add to my wish list!! Thanks, Jennifer, for introducing me to these fabulous stencils!! I’m in love and what a time saver!! You are BLESSING!

  2. I really like this video, your techniques are always so helpful and come at the perfect time. I just pulled out stencils and was thinking what should I do? I also think these masking stencils will need to be added to my supply, you are cleaning up and I am adding….. have a great day.

  3. Brilliant! These masking stencils have moved to the top of my Taylored Expressions
    wishlist. Your creativity is always so inspiring!

  4. I love these new ideas. I usually need to create a multiple (10 or more of the same card), but I think I am going to try one of these ideas for my next set. I love that Taylored Expressions marks their stencils. I think I will go through the ones that I have and mark mine – it will mark things so much easier.

  5. Great technique and indeed if you don’t have the stencils you can use your dies and that opens even more opportunities.
    Awesome cards Jennifer, my favorite masking and background is the Wonderful card as a masculine card and the I love you so card as a female card.
    Thank you so much for sharing your outstanding inspiration, hope you and Lila are completely flu free and have a wonderful weekend.

  6. I make some stencils from card stock and dies I love and get several uses from them. I of course have a little collection of stencils(Lol!) and I love videos like this helping me to see more ideas for using them! 🙂

  7. What fun and beautiful ways to use stencils and masks! These cards are beautiful. I don’t know how you come up with all these fabulous ideas, but you always do. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  8. I love all your videos. I was watching someone else the other day and was totally unable to follow. You are the best. Thanks for all you do.

  9. Thank you for all of your wonderful videos, I’ve always enjoyed them. On another note, you list in your products from the video the Platinum 6 machine but I didn’t see you use it in the video. I’ve purchased this machine only because the Cuttlebug is no longer supported. I find the Platinum 6 very picky and difficult to use and would like to watch you use it more in your videos so I can learn more about how to use it. I’ve picked up some tips like aligning die cuts at an angle or rotating the plates, however, this machine seems to be too tight and the plates sometime pop out of the other side once I start cranking. And the plates warp like crazy, I’ve only had the Platinum 6 a few months but have gone through multiple plates. Help!!

  10. What a lovely group of cards! I’ve never heard of a masking stencil, but it certainly makes sense. Thanks for another new technique! You are brilliant!
