  1. I’m the first to comment! YAY me!! You never cease to amaze me! What wonderful techniques and can be accomplished with supplies already in our stash…BUT my SSS wish list is growing longer and longer!! I NEED a $$$ tree!! You share so much of yourself in your creativity and are such an inspiration! Remember you are BLESSING!

  2. Loved these cards and how you used both cutouts for two different cards. Always thinking! Thanks for all you do!

    1. Stunning as always! I really appreciate seeing the techiniques with one or two sets. Thank you so much sharing with so much detail and ❤

  3. You hit it out of the ball park AGAIN! These are such interesting and beautiful cards and I love that two cards are made from one piece. You are a treasure….hope you know how much you are loved. God bless you and you bless us!

  4. WHAT SUPER IDEAS, Jennifer! LOVE what you’ve shown us! A SUPER VIDEO! THANK YOU for showing us! I HOPE your blues have flown away! I DO UNDERSTAND! I don’t think that blue feeling after kids go off to school ever leaves us, even when they are off to college! LOL It’s a mommy thing… BLESSINGS!!! ;)<3

  5. Gorgeous cards–love making 2 at once, such a great idea. You inspire me Jennifer! Thanks and many Blessings to you!

  6. It’s been a difficult time for me lately. I’m currently knitting scarves and plan to start a cross stitch tray in addition to resuming stamping. Hobbies are such a blessing. Glad to see your post and your beautiful creations.

  7. thanks for sharing your gorgeous cards – these technique examples are so helpful – also love the envelope you created:)

  8. Happy New Year! Thank you so much for yet another wonderful video full of helpful tips. I can’t wait to try this technique on my next card(s). Keep those creative juice flowing in 2020!!!

  9. I do love getting two for one. I make a lot of envelopes- many ou too old calendars, you can easily make envelopes in half the time of what you just showed with 8 1/2 x11 paper, with either a template or the envelope punch board.

  10. Happy New Year! Awesome techniques, the cards are beautiful. I will be making these cards soon! Just love your designs, Jennifer.

  11. Thank you! These amazing techniques and the resulting beautiful cards have helped me to jump-start my imagination and creativity, which has been lacking lately!

  12. Happy New Year Jennifer…these cards are beautiful and I love that you get two for one…I did notice in your video that you had your cutting plates taped together??? Did you show how you did this and I missed it? Can you direct me to the video it is in. Thank you, Stephanie

  13. Loved the cards, but I have to say the very first thing I noticed when I open the site was the gingham envelope. I couldn’t wait to ask you where you bought it. It is so cute! That die is a must have for me. Love to have matching envelopes and liners for my cards, but hate to waste a large piece of paper.

  14. Gorgeous cards Jennifer, again a great way to use stamps on a different way.
    I love that you make two cards in one time. Thank you so much for your great
    video tutorial and have a wonderful day.

  15. Absolutely stunning and your talent amazes me! So many wonderful examples of how to spotlight and masking – and how you can make 2:1 cards each time. Thanks for the great video!

  16. Love this technique and your video, as always, is great. Can you tell me what rectangle dies you recommend. Is there an infinity rectangle die set you use? These seem to be out of stock when I have looked to purchase one. I also like the stitched look some give but haven’t found the right one. As the pice point is high I want to get the right one! Any suggestions? Thanks 🙂

  17. Awesome technique, I love the cards. I am going to try this one for sure, my sisters and I are getting together next weekend for a little get away and will be making some cards. Thanks for the inspiration.

  18. Thank you for all your wonderful, inspiring videos. Love all the details that you put into your cards. So many great ideas that we can use for all sorts of cards.

    I’m curious about why you like the envelope dies better than an envelope punch board? The dies seem to be more work. I make lots of different sized envelopes from 8 1/2 X 11 card stock using my punch board. Easy-peasy and fast.
