  1. I totally agree, this new color is sooooooooooooo beautiful!!!!! 😍😍😍 I love the Tim Holtz products & the inventiveness of that company! I haven’t had a chance to play with the oxides much, my local stores for some reason don’t carry them but what I have been able to get my hands on I love! Thanks for sharing this beautiful product line with us, your groupies! 😉🤗💖

  2. That Speckled Egg color is beautiful! I love how it blends with such a wide variety of other colors too. I will be using the baby wipe stencil emboss technique with my Distress Inks very soon. Thanks for another fantastic video!

  3. Thank for anther new technique to use with distress inks. This is wonderful. I don’t have to buy any new to get started. Distress inks are my favorite inks. I appreciate your inspiration. I look forward to your next video. Stay healthy!

  4. I’m with you, I LOVE this color! I can’t wait to try this new technique using baby wipes. So creative and beautiful results!! I have been steadily adding to my Distress collection and this color would be a wonderful addition!

  5. This new colour is calling me name. When I saw the reveal I knew I needed to add this colour to my collection, sooner rather than later. Love how it pairs beautifully with blues, teals and greys. Thanks for showing us another fun and easy technique to try. Love the results. Thanks also for the chance to win!

  7. I just love this new color of distress ink! It is so beautiful in all the cards you made, and thanks for sharing this new technique! Can’t wait to try it!

  8. Oh I so enjoy watching your videos and seeing what you are making. I have learned so much from you! Thanks for all you do, especially in these trying times! Hugs to you and your family! Stay safe!

  9. Such lovely cards, and such a simple way to get that effect with stencils! This is one I definitely plan on trying out.

  10. These are beautiful cards! You are very talented. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win the new color from
    Tim Holtz.

  11. What a great technique! Thanks for coming up with it and sharing! Also, thanks for sharing the Speckles Egg sets with 2 of us! Have a fabulous week!

  12. What an awesome technique! Your card examples are wonderful! I’m definitely going to have to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  13. This may be one of your best blog post and video. Love this new technique and can’t wait to try it! Thank you!

  14. You are so inspiring! I love the new colour – it’s one of my favourites, too. Thanks for yet another brilliantly simple and effective technique.

  15. I wanted to not “need” this new color. Alas, I, too, am a fan of teal blue color and have it in most rooms in my house. And after seeing the comparison with all the other distress colors, this one is a must have for me now!

    I’m also excited to try the technique in the video – loved the look of these cards!

    Thanks, Jennifer, for sharing and your generosity!

  16. I love teal blues.

    I do have a smallish request though, for someone wanting to get into card making, who has little to no supplies (I have a bone folder), what are the starting out items that you consider essential to get going?

    Do you have, or would you be willing to make a video on this topic?

    Thank you.

  17. I am a lover of blue as well Jennifer. This is such a soft & elegant shade & it would be a fabulous addition to my small ink collection. I don’t have enough shades in one line of ink to do proper blending of some products, so this would be perfect. I love the tip of using the baby wipe on top of the stencil – again that soft elegant look.

    Your new pup is adorable! Have fun.

    Thank you for a chance to win Jennifer.

  18. Your creations are always amazing and inspiring! You are the reason I got into card making 🙂 I’ve learned so much from you. I really appreciate the time and effort you making the videos/posts for all of us. Thank you!

  19. Love the new color, I can’t wait to try this technique out with the Distress inks I have. Thank you for all of the inspiration!

  20. I’m loving the stencil technique, I tried it immediately! I love how you give ideas to re-purpose so many crafty tools

  21. I am always so impressed with all the creative ways and ideas you have come up with to create so many beautiful cards. I’m eager to try this removal technique. It’s so obvious I am kicking myself for the backward way I have been doing it in the past. In H.S. my Trig. teachers said that if the problem took 3 steps I’d solve it in 15… But I would get there. I guess Im still taking the long route. But Ive create some incredible ” Accidents” along the way. Thanks for sharing yet another great YouTube!

  22. Thanks for sharing this technique and your tips for coordinating with this gorgeous new colour.

  23. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas on cards with us. That color is just beautiful!!
    Thanks!!

  24. I am loving the new color and the incredibly lovely projects you created. You are such an inspiration!

  25. I follow your very informative and fabulous posts. You are one talented lady thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous color.

  26. Wow Jennifer, you really amaze me with the techniques you come up with! Beautiful cards and I can’t wait to try this. I think Speckled Egg will be one of my favorites.

  27. I can’t imagine how you continue to come up with new techniques. Such a soft background technique, and I love the new Speckled Egg Distress colored ink! Thanks for continuing to spread kindness.

  28. OMGoodness, you create such beautiful cards. This is a whole new world to me, but I have taken the plunge and am starting to learn. Thank you so much for your videos Jennifer, as I am so eager to make cards for my family and friends.

  29. What an amazing technique! Great way to stretch our stencils. I can hardly wait to git it a try. And that speckled egg distress ink color …. one can never have too many blue inks and this one is gorgeous. Love the soft look it gives. Thanks for the chance to win and for teaching us another great technique!

  30. Hi, Jennifer, thanks for this—and all of your interesting, helpful—technique.

    I did some experimenting with it, while I procrastinated on catching up on my homework from OCC. I thought you might be interested in my results:

    1) I started with Mustard Seed on my paper. I then added a blue ink to the baby wipe, which did exactly as expected in that it turned the raised areas green. There were some “halos” around the images, but I believe those can be adjusted by the dampness of the wipe/paper towel.

    2) I did some other tests, but no really helpful results except one. I missed the wipe with your shimmer water (perfect pearls mix). This yielded a really interesting and beautiful result. Of course you see the shine on the raised areas, but this was the only example where the texture of the wipe was also transferred visibly. It’s really subtle, but beautiful.

    You’ve probably tried this by now, but in case not, I thought I’d give my results. I haven’t finished testing the new delivery method, but wanted to give a quick update 🙂

  31. I just love this new color in the distress line.
    Your projects, as always, are very inspiring.
    Thank you!

  32. WOW! This is SUCH a beautiful color. I really love all your ideas for making up cards with the various backgrounds and your wetwipe stencil technique is awesome!

  33. Hi Jennifer. What a great technique. Of course a baby wipe would work with distress ink…just never thought of it. Funny, saw Tim’s video: he was introducing the Speckled Egg inks. He’s always so much fun to watch. At the end he mentioned he had packages of the product to send out. Had a feeling you were one of those friends!! Anyway, thanks so much for all your great videos and cards. So inspired and grateful!

  34. I am so excited about the new color. Thanks so much for sharing these great ideas!!!

  35. I can see why this technique is our card-making group’s next challenge. Love your examples and can’t wait to try it.
