  1. Thank you Jennifer for all this useful information! I’ve been stamper for many years (about 30 years) and most of my inks are older than 5 to 10 years and so are my embossing powders. I am slowly purchasing new ones using your recommendations. Thank you! I’m still trying to decide if I should unmount my wood stamps. I bought the misty after seeing you show us how great it is. Will I be able to use the uncounted red rubber stamps with the misty?

    1. I unmounted all my wood stamps to save space AND to be able to use them in the Misti.. You need to put the red rubber stamps on EZ Mount.
      Regards from Belgium. Corinne

  2. The cards are beautiful. I have become such a fan of your work. I appreciate how well planned your videos are and yet still teach each step so precisely. Thanks for showing us ways to share happiness.

  3. Absolutely LOVE your cards and that new DO ink color is so gorgeous!! Beautiful cards and so many useful tips and techniques! Thanks, Jennifer! YOU are BLESSING!!

  4. Great video. I can’t find the Peacock Feathers Distress OXIDE only Distress ink. In your video, I saw the top of the ink and yours definately said ONIDE. There was no link to that color. Can you link to it? Thanks.

  5. I love these backgrounds and this technique, another way to use those background stamps that seem one dimensional. Thank you so much for all you do.

  6. Hi Jennifer!
    I had been determined that I would not order anything new because I’m going broke! So many wonderful tips and tricks on all of your videos!
    Alas, I had to order Tim’s new ink because it truly looks so realistic in your video. I’m also going to try his Heavystock paper.
    Thank you for your wonderful videos.
    Blessings,
    Joan

  7. Love the new ink color, and the pine cone and poinsettia dies are awesome! And, as always, you put them all together in such fantastic ways! Thank you!

  8. Once again, I am absolutely AMAZED at your talent! I LOVE watching your tutorials!! I have been rewatching your organizational videos, and I was wondering how you store wood mounted rubber stamps…any suggestions?

  9. I just received the new Tim Holtz color in regular Distress and Oxides. Since I pre-ordered it I didn’t know what I was getting. but I knew I would like it. It really is a beautiful color and ‘m looking forward to trying your techniques.

  10. Gorgeous cards Jennifer, I love the awesome blends you made with the new Distress colour, one that I adore.
    Thank you so much for the great technique video and your awesome inspiration, stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

  11. I love all your cool ideas. Is that sticky paper that you use in your Misti just some kind of sticky paper or is it that sticky mat that you listed above? Can you explain exactly what it is? Thank you.
