  1. I love shaker cards! These are so awesome! Love that 3 window die! That’s probably the only way I could ever cut three windows and keep them lined up! More great toys/tools! Thanks for sharing!

  2. All three of your cards are wonderful, but, I think the piggy card is especially cute. Thank you for showing us how to make shaker cards with and without the shaker pouches. I recently purchased the Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and it is amazing! Thank you for recommending it!!!!

  3. The last card you made with the rainbow/stars … absolutely beautiful and fun! What a great idea. Thanks for the video.

  4. I love this idea. I can’t wait to try it out and I think I have several shape and cover dies that will work beautifully for this technique. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing talent and creativity with us all!

  5. Your cards are so beautiful, I love watching you make them but there I some that I don’t know how you do it. You are very talented. Thank you.
    Jennifer is there a trick that you use when you are using full card front dies that help the tiny pieces to release from the dies?? I have a few and it takes so long to get those tiny pieces out. Thanks in advance for ANY help you can give me.

  6. Gorgeous cards Jennifer, I love them all, although the piggies card my favorite is.
    Thank you so much for sharing these beauties, the see through is a great idea and the video tutorial.
    Have a great day!

  7. These cards were wonderful and wonder how you think up all these ideas. I especially liked the rainbow card. Great use of the monthly kit. Thank you.

  8. Shaker cards are my favorite! These look so fun. I need to try my own version even though I don’t have these products. Thanks for the video. I think those pigs are adorable.

  9. Hi Jennifer,
    Love your cards and enjoy making them.
    Can you please show us more kids birthday cards
    as it is always in demand. Please

  10. Oh Jennifer…I love these cards so much. After watching your video I decided I needed to make the rainbow card. But I just didn’t want to spend the $$ on the die cut (didn’t know how much I’d ever use it afterwards) when I own 2 Cricut machines. So I went into my Design Space and designed my own version. Oh…my…Lord!!! I cut out 6 of them, deciding I was not going to make just one. Holy Kamoly! I just finished them today. I actually only made 5, because after sticking all the stuff together on my last one…by that I mean the sequins…rainbow parts…everything… I threw it. I used Sookwang double sided tape (I have 1/4″ and 1/8″) so it was perfect. But that stuff is so strong! I love the way they turned out. But I will say…you make it look soooo simple. I had so much trouble laying on the acetate. Then trying to get the layers lined up…that was fun! Thank you for all you do to teach us new techniques. I did order the Window Frames Stamp set, Trio window die, and from another of your recent videos, the Birthday Buds stamp set, and the Honey Bee Brilliant Day stamp sets. They will be delivered today! Can hardly wait. Love, love all that you do. Been a fan for quite awhile!
