  1. On your Thank You rainbow card, where did you get the clear bubble embellishments? I didn’t see them listed in the supplies. Thanks!!! I love watching all your videos. You give me so many new ideas!!!

  2. Your cards are beautiful… thank you for the continued inspiration we receive from your videos… Blessings!

  3. I have a rose corner floral die that I will have to try this technique with, thank you for the idea.! Bt the way, cute cards.

  4. Thanks for sharing these cards and video, Jennifer. Working with stencils is such fun so I’m looking forward to working with the masking to add even more to cards. Stay well.

  5. What a great masking technique! Love the look you achieved. There were so many tips in this video that I know I will be watching it again and again. Thanks!

  6. These cards are awesome! Thank you for sharing your talent with us and inspiring us to have fun with card making!

  7. Lovely cards. The Hibiscus was amazing! Have to try these techniques. Thank you for what you do for us!

  8. Gorgeous cards and love the idea of it looking dimensional. Can you please tell me where you get the little rainbow embellishments you use?

  9. These are very o pretty. I tried this masking paper but it did not stick to my embossed flower and kept lifting up with the stamp, that first card is fantastic with that subtle stenciling in the background.

  10. Fabulous cards Jennifer and again a awesome new (for me) technique.
    Gorgeous release of SSS, unfortunatelly I just ordered from them and it’s shipped, so some awesome things have to wait for a while untill I order again. But what’s comming the Gina K Masking Magic!
    I couldn’t find it anywhere in the Netherlands, a few webshops had it on their site but not on stock and they didn’t know when they got it back in. After fewing your video I’m double happy that I ordered it.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

  11. Hi, Jennifer. Another set of eye-popping cards and new techniques to try. Would you please post or email me the oxide color combos you used? Choosing colors and/or patterns is the hardest phase of cardmaking for me. Thanks for sharing your art and experience. I learn so much from you.

  12. Sorry, Jennifer. I was busy taking notes while the colors were at the top of your screen. I just did not see them.

  13. These are all so amazing! I would hate to have to choose a favorite! I have to push my brain to go further, add more layers, make it more! Watching you build upon what could be a finished product teaches me to keep looking! Thank you! I love it!

  14. Hi,
    I watch a lot of your videos and I hope you can help me. I recently purchased the Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine. It says to purchase a separate plate to used 3D embossing folders. Apparently this item has been discontinued. I am hoping you can make a suggestion for a work around as the plate is no longer available. Spellbinders is not answering questions at this time. I called and tried to email their customer support; it just takes you back to the page you started on.
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Isabella S.
