  1. Love all your ideas using the sparkle embossing powders with the Hero Arts kit. I am anxiously awaiting my kit and will have to try some of this when it comes.

  2. Jennifer…these are just too st”ink”in’ cute!! Great tips for using sparkling embossing powder! YOU are BLESSING!

  3. After seeing your cards and video, Jennifer, I’m so excited for this new MMH kit to arrive in my mailbox!! So many great ideas for the add-ons too – thanks for the inspiration!!

  4. Thanks for sharing your amazing cards and all your great ideas! Really like the way you created two backgrounds by stamping one off to give the lighter background plus all the great ideas for that great embossing powder. I can hardly wait for my kit to arrive so I can try some of these ideas, especially the way you made the sparkly water fade toward the top. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me.

  5. Love these underwater cards with the sparkle! The coral, seaweeds, shells and fish are so summery. Emboss resist is a great technique to avoid masking.

    One question: how do you clean the Versamark ink from your brush?
