  1. I am always a big fan for your cards and ideas Jennifer, but the ‘spiro-graph’ style of the Spheres and Spirals card is stunning. I really thought you’d used filament or something, it’s so 3D!!! The “You Are” card in deep purple, also a favorite! I can’t wait to take in your whole video. I have a morning, coffee and a sweet reserved for that <3

  2. Thanks for the longer video, Jennifer. It’s nice to have something to do while hunkering down in place. I thought of many people to whom I could send a little handmade kindness. Today’s cards lend themselves to mass production so I’m going to get right on it!

  3. Lovely cards as always! Thank you for each post, I love watching them, they bring me joy. Wishing you and yours lots of health!

  4. When I was a kid, I was fascinated when introduced to drawing with a bright crayon, then brushing black Prang water color over it and seeing the color pop out from the dark paint. So, these cards still hold that same fascination for me! Thanks for all the wonderful examples!!

  5. Beautiful cards I do love the Fab. flowers and the Spirals remind of my Spirograph when I was young. Thank you for the great ideas and the video….

  6. Love your cards! Always fun to watch reminders of how versatile our simple crafting supplies are! Thank you for your continual sharing of your love of crafting!

  7. Okay, that Hello Spiral card just blows me away!!!! Thank you for sharing that! Amazing!!! (Reminds me of my childhood, too.) I am making a bunch of cards to give to our local Senior Care facility, since they are closed to visitors right now, so the staff can distribute them as needed. These ideas are just inspiring me! God bless!

  8. This is a wonderful release & I have a “few favourites” so far. lol Thanks for the great reminder about stamping on dark cardstock. You’ve inspired me to get into my craft room & try it. I tend to always reach for white & cream. As always, I enjoy your post & your videos as you explain everything so well.

  9. Your cards are beautiful. Thank you for sharing the techniques and the video. Can’t wait to give some of those techniques a try.

  10. You never cease to amaze me with your creations and always Inspire by what you create. Your use of all the new releases is nothing less than spectacular. So colorful and vibrant.

  11. Thanks for another inspiring video. I don’t have a lot of layering stamps so thanks for showing the technique with different types of stamps. I love that “Spirograph” stamp and die set!

  12. Jennifer,
    You make wonderful cards and you are such an inspiration for me. Thanks for showing techniques, tips, and tricks to achieve beautiful cards. I love the Altenew stamp sets and have a few of them.
    Thanks for your inspiration!

  14. Absolutely INCREDIBLY AMAZING!! What gorgeous-ness!! You are BLESSING!! Thanks for being YOU, Jennifer!! Meeting you in person one day is on my bucket list!!

  15. This is a beautiful technique. I’m struggling a bit with the situation we’re in (I’m old and MY “super power” seems to be worrying), and your video was a wonderful distraction. Card making takes my mind off things, but I’ve had a hard time concentrating. You’ve given me inspiration to try this — I’ll be going to my craft room soon!

  16. These are absolutely brilliant! I thought it couldn’t get any better after the first one, but they are all amazing! I love how your head and heart come together in your cards!
    As at-risk seniors we are on a shelter in place order here in Monterey County, CA. I would love to spend it all crafting, but my back begins to scream in protest. With your inspiration, I’m going to have to push myself. Oh, the cost of having fun! LOL! I know God has a plan, and we are part of it. There has to be a way! Thank you for your wonderful tutorials! Sending virtual hugz. They are germ free!

  17. The layering makes beautiful cards.
    The light against the same darker
    color really pops. thanks for
    sharing.

  18. I love the Spheres and Spirals set, I thought you had actually applied stitching when I saw the picture of your card. Love the techniques you have used. Love love love.

  19. These cards are stunning, I love what you did with this fabulous florets stamp set. I love the colors you used, the design of the card, I want to try, I went to order the set and it was already sold out. Crazy, I guess we are all shopping while we are are at home. Thank you for your kindness always Jennifer, Stay safe.

  20. Awesome techniques for these beautiful cards! I always get so many ideas and so much inspiration along the hops! Thank you!

  21. I always enjoy your tutorials. You share such interesting ways to use items we already have. Lately, I have been working with black and navy card stock. Thanks for the new ideas.

  22. Wow! Love all the different looks you got on dark cardstock! Guess it’s time to pull out my white pigment ink and some dark cardstock. Thanks another great video and all the great inspiration!

  23. Loving all these great ideas for stamping on dark cardstocks! That spiral card is my favorite! When I first saw it I thought had done some stitching on it. Gorgeous texture!

  24. Oh, my goodness!!! Your cards are amazing!! Not that I had any question that they would be. I specially like the first one with those gorgeous blues!

  25. Jennifer, you’ve inspired hundreds of people to pursue their hobby interests. These cards are so beautiful on the dark cardstock. The spiral card is my favorite and reminds me of my childhood. Social distancing is a good time to create these cards and send them across to the medical facilities and other services who have been helping to safeguard us. Thank you so much. Hoping everything resumes as normal.

  26. I love your videos and seeing such creative ideas. Now I must add white pigment ink to my wish list! Thanks you for providing a bright spot during this strange week!
