    1. Hi Jennifer, I am new to card making and your tutorials are so easy to follow; so glad you explain all of the steps involved. Thank you for all you do, you are truly a Blessing to all of us!

  1. You are AMAZING! This technique for mass producing cards is ingenious!! I can’t wait to give it a try!! Thanks so much, Jennifer! You are BLESSING! Hope you are yours are safe and well…

  2. Hi Jennifer thanks for your fabulous inspiration !!

    After making my stack of cards I’m not sure what to write inside. Can you please share with us what you write for these kinds of cards where you don’t know who will get them? Just your name? A message?

  3. What a neat idea for coloring flowers. Sometimes it’s so hard to color with markers and do shading. Thank you for your idea with craft foam.

  4. Thanks Jennifer for your compassion and gratitude for whatever is thrown at you. I love to watch your videos because they take my mind off of what’s going on. Even though I’m in Alaska, life has changed. I am still working, as I work at a senior center apartment living facility that also supplies Meals on Wheels for seniors in our small Alaska community. There would be about 40 seniors who couldn’t get a daily meal if we stopped delivering. We are sometimes the only people these seniors see because of the stay at home mandate, and they live alone and have no family. Our state and local grants that help cover some of the cost of these meals didn’t plan for a pandemic, so we are stretching our meager budget as far as possible to continue with the meals for as long as possible. Pray for us!
    Bless you and your family!

  5. As always you make some of the most gorgeous cards ever!! Thank you again for such great ideas! Keep safe and craft on…

  6. Jennifer, you have such a huge heart and I love this technique. Be safe and healthy and crafty.

  7. I love this technique. I have used it in the past with great results. Thank you. Stay safe and healthy and craft away.

  8. This is a fabulous technique. Thank you for being a wonderful role model for gratitude and appreciation in the world. I am very impressed with your commitment to continually giveback. I know that your following has learned a lot by your choice to put your resources to use for the best causes.

  9. What an ingenious technique!! I love the way you can quickly color many cards quickly! You simply amaze me every time I go to your blog and see your latest video and blog!! Thank you for prompting us to show gratitude and appreciation to all those people who are putting their lives on the line, so that people can receive the kind of care they need in this crazy world right now! Thank you so much for sharing your expertise, skill and artistic talent! You have inspired me to try this technique on some cards I will be making tomorrow!!

  10. great idea! but that is what you do. As a retired nurse I appreciate the care and concern for those still working. I ordered some foam so will be trying this soon.

  11. Fantastic! As much as we all appreciate the courage and strength of our doctors and nurses and 1st responders, I think we are all so happy that you keep creating to help us in this crazy time! Thank you! Love this fun foam stamping, the cards came out beautifully! xo~

  12. Wow, this is a great fast way to mass produce.
    The cards look gorgeous, I love the thin strips on de left side of the card. It is often those little things that complete a card.
    Thank you so much for sharing Jennifer, stay safe & healthy and have a great day.

  13. Finally, I get to comment after trying all day yesterday. I don’t know what I was doing wrong. You never cease to amaze me with the clever ideas you come up with. Yours is the first blog I click on each day. This is such a great idea to have a crafting party – what did we ever do before computers? I get frustrated with technology, but I also thank God for that same technology that enables us to connect with each other in good times and bad. God’s blessing to you for your big heart and incredible talent.

  14. Jennifer, I was introduced to Altenew through your blog. Thank you for the ongoing inspiration you provide and your generous heart! Praying that God keeps you and your family healthy.

  15. You are my inspiration, Jennifer. When my crafting ideas are taking a hiatus I turn to you. Thanks for all your great videos. This mass production is wonderful especially now when we want to give those that are so helpful a boost. I never mass produced previously but attempted this today. Now I need craft foam. Be safe and stay well.

  16. I really liked this idea, the repetition is very relaxing. I had another thought for coloring, my four kiddos and their new box of crayons! I like getting them in on the acts of kindness. Thanks again for the frequent content. It is such a blessing in these times.

  17. Jennifer, please answer soon!
    We love this technique! So much so that a friend and I are each making 75 cards for the nurses at my nieces hospital in Columbia SC.
    Did you sign all of your cards w just your name? Or just a greeting?
    I think we will sign them and place in envelopes, and my niece can distribute to each floor.
    Thanks for all your great ideas!

  18. Love the way you made your own stamps with the foam for stamp sets that don’t have the layering stamps. Great cards.

  19. This inspired me to finally do what I’ve been wanting to do for a long time: making a card for each of the residents in a nursing home where my mom lives. It’s hard for me not to be allowed to visit but it’s so much harder for them and I sent a box of Easter cards – they were a big hit!
    I ended up using a different trick for quick coloring, because the images were rather intricate: I made stencils for the stamp set using my Silhouette machine and colored very quickly and effortlessly using them with blending brushes. The advantage of this technique was that I achived a slight gradation in coloring which made it look more realistic.
    Thank you for the inspiration, it is much needed these days. 🙂

  20. did you post an address where you can send these cards? Am I losing my mind. I swear you had something within the last few weeks where a group off you stampers were getting together to send cards to the essential workers. They were to be sent to an address you posted and there was a cut off time to get them to you.

    I need the address and cut of time so I can get going on this.


  21. Wow, I LOVE this technique! I don’t remember seeing this tip before, but I won’t forget it! Such a brilliant idea!
