  1. Oh totally amazed you did this Was really hoping for this
    I can’t thank you enough for all the beauty you bring

    Stay safe 🌈 ❤️❤️

  2. Gorgeous and bright cards, I love the beautiful leave stencil from SSS.
    Thank you so much for the great tutorial about de Embossing Glaze.
    Stay safe and a wonderful day.

  3. Yet ANOTHER cool product I HAVE to have! I would not have given this product a second look, except for your amazing examples. I really like when you used the glaze with paste and mixed the colors– the results were WAY COOL! This will be included in a “mass production” project in my near future. Thank you for the ideas!

  4. I wish Tim would stop coming out with so many products that look like so much fun to try … NOT!!!! Thanks, Jennifer.

    Hello from Michigan!
    This is Lora Bowman. I really love all of the techniques have done.
    But this is especially gorgeous with the Embossing Glaze!
    I had to order the set of 12 colors right away. I ordered 5 times from Altenew in 2 weeks because of you. Aren’t you ashamed, lolol, not. I’m loving every minute of crafting. Thank you so much Jennifer!!
