Faux Monoprint – My Favorite Technique! + FREEBIE

  1. Thank you so much Jennifer McGuire for teaching us and inspire us with your beautiful creations, I have learned a lot from you. I would be honor to win a price from you one day. Blessings

  2. I love your faux mono print techniques. They just blow my mind! I also love this Gina K release and I was able to get the kit and some other products in the release but the Master Layout Die Set was sold out! Hopefully Gina will get it back in stock soon! Thank you so much for your videos, I always learn so much from them!

  3. Jennifer, I love all the cards above. Can’t wait to watch the video…. which is my next step…..Thanks for all your videos and inspiration.

  4. This was my favorite YouTube video yet! I’m a “newbie” to this craft & I love how well you explain what you’re doing & why. Quick question: does this “faux monoprint” technique work ONLY with Tim Holts Distress Inks?

  5. I always love your cards, and these are no exception. Resist is one of my favorite techniques. I watched the release party last night and love what you did with these stamps & dies.

  6. –GETTING TWO FOR ONE IS WONDERFUL–LOVE THE FAUX MONOPRINT CARDS!!! WILL THIS TECHNIQUE WORK WITH DISTRESS OXIDE INKS TOO? THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW.

  7. More fantastic cards! Thanks for showing us that not all your ideas worked out quite as planned. Makes me feel better about my failed attempts. 🙂

  8. Love these cards, loving the intense colors so much fun can hardly wait to try this. Thanks again for the inspiration.

  9. Jennifer—- Thanks so much for the faux monoprint inspiration. As soon as I saw your post and products used, I ordered the Gina K nature kit. I cannot wait to get it. So versatile.

  10. I love the solid colour examples. The old saying “blue and green should never been seen” is certainly proven wrong!!!

  11. Beautiful backgrounds and such a great technique to make many cards! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful videos!!

  12. It is always such a joy to find a video from you I know this means fun and play after.

    This kit from Gina K is really beautiful

  13. What a great technique and relatively easy. A good way to use all those stencils I have. Thanks for all you do!

  14. Once again, your creations have just inspired me into a desire to get lost in my crafty happy place! Thanks!

  15. Can’t wait to try these techniques with my supplies. Your videos are incredible! So well produced, high quality, creative & inspiring. You are a blessing to the world.

  16. Hi Jennifer, I really love the monoprint technique and have tried it several times after watching your video, but I just can’t get the right color combinations of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I have many colors but not the whole line. Would you be so kind as to list the ink colors you used. I really want to make these cards.

  17. Even though I washed my stencils with warm soapy water, the ones I had used pixie spray on for previous projects were a big poblem for this project. They stuck and tore the paper apart. I can’t seem to find a video on how to completely remove pixie spray from stencils. Any suggestions?

  18. You do such beautiful cards. You are my go-to card maker for inspiration and ideas. I have sent many a card maker to your site and they live your videos as much as I. Thanks Jennifer!

  19. I love your cards as they give me so much insperation. What is the white holder you ink your cards in pls.
