  1. Another really helpful video full of tips! Thanks! Thanks, too, for sharing these amazing cards. Love them all. Now I’m off to order this stamp set before it sells out.

  2. You are just full of tricks! 😄 It really amazes me how you just keep coming up with all the tips & tricks that you share! (Thank you!)
    Your cards are truly beautiful & flawless! 💜
    I CANNOT WAIT TO UNTIL I RECEIVE ALL MY STAMPTEMBER GOODIES 😁👏 I’M SO EXCITED!!!

  3. I tried twice to comment over on youtube and it erased my comments both time…wouldn’t post. HMMMM…what absolutely amazing cards, tips, techniques! I always learn something new from your videos! Jennifer McGuire making a boo boo…NEVER!! LOL It is heartwarming to see that you goof, too! I learned a long time ago that any goof can be “fixed” in some way…it’s only paper and it has two sides! If not, can be “recycled” into something useful. AND there’s always the trash!! I am part of the FB GKD group and we having such fun with the “Chuckie” and the creative ideas that are being created! I am on a mission for my “Chuckie”!! Thanks for ALL you do! YOU are BLESSING!! Have a safe and great holiday weekend!!

  4. OOPS…I just checked back on YouTube and comment was posted! Twice…must have taken a bit to show up. I deleted one of them!!

  5. Wow, popular set. I just sat down at 9:00 AM Central to look at the beautiful creations and when I clicked on it to take me to SSS, it said sold out. Amazing! It truly is a gorgeous set Gina K, sorry to have missed out!
    Jennifer, gorgeous cards. As always, they are helpful ideas to incorporate with other stamps!

  6. I love all your masking videos, I think this one is my favorite, so sad stamp set is sold out already. I love that that we can use the stamp set in so many different ways. Thanks as always.

  7. Beautiful cards. I love this stamp set and I love your masking techniques. Now I need a dry erase board eraser! I’ve been using an old cloth with my Misti, but this looks so much easier.

  8. Thank you Jennifer for another wonderful card video! You always teach me something and I always say WOW after I watch one of your videos! I am so happy that I was able to buy this stamp set before it sold out! Can’t wait to get it so that I can try this creative masking technique! Thanks again!

  9. As always, your cards are beautiful! I love the way you teach. Very easy to understand, creative and fun! I was bummed that SSS was out of stock on this beautiful stamp set by noon on the day of the release, but I can definitely make some of these cards with other snowflake stamps.

  10. I’m not planning on doing any slimline cards, because I know it would mean, for me, anyway, buying new stamps and dies. But I do hate to admit it, they are my favorite! Gorgeous! TFS!

  11. Hi Jennifer, I have been following you for about a year, was very new to stamping and have bought lots of supplies since I found you and your inspirations! I have learned so much from you, but struggle with mixing and matching colors. I love your mix of Tim Holtz colors (cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, broken china and chipped sapphire), but have mostly altenew crisp inks. I am hesitant to buy more inks until I get the hang of color blending, but wondered if you are aware of any resource where you could direct me to a color comparison between different ink brands? Thanks so much!

  12. Thanks you for sharing your wonderful cards and the masking technique. Can’t wait to try it!

    Question: what are the little triangle “scoops” you use for the embossing powder?

  13. You always make such beautiful cards!! You make it look so easy. The only problem is that afterwards I have to place one or two orders.

    Thank you for sharing your talents!
