  1. Loving this new release! Your cards are all beautiful as always!! I like that Z fold card, nice change from the usual openings of cards. Thank you for always inspiring and sharing your fabulous tips!

  2. I don’t think you sleep either, lol. That is a lot of cards and they are all so beautiful. Thanks for sharing your inspiration.

  3. Gorgeous cards Jennifer. Love the Z fold… it is pretty easy and doesn’t require extra tools! Fantastic release from Pinkfresh. I love the daisy and leafy wreaths! So, so pretty! Hanging Garden is lovely too! Such pretty and fresh designs! 🙂 Happy (and safe!) Holidays!

  4. The layering stencils are such a great idea! Love the results. I especially like the effect of adding multiple colors to one stencil, or just applying one color heavily. It does add so much dimension. Great cards. Thanks, Jennifer.

  5. Love the z-fold card. Haven’t made one of
    those for awhile. Have to put that back into
    the rotation. Wonderful collection of cards.
    thanks for sharing

  6. Knocked it out of the park, as always, Jennifer! Just when I thought I was done with my Christmas shopping for myself 🙂 Love these floral stencils. Perfect for the not really creative me. Love to make my cards but not much God-given talent 🙂 Thanks for all the inspiration!

  7. You always come up with so many beautiful cards Jennifer! I love these layering stencils and ordered a few of them (even though I wanted all of them lol) as soon as I saw them! I’m definitely going to refer back to your excellent video for ideas when they get here!!

  8. Gorgeous cards as usual & love the z-fold opening. Layering stencils look like they would be easier to line up than layering stamps. Edward Scissorhands lol!!

    1. Thanks Jennifer for all your awesome videos! I learn so much! I have not been able to find the sticky mat that you use inside of your Misty. How can I find that? Thank you

  9. So many great cards, teaching kids at home, running a home and a business–Jennifer, you are simply amazing and God bless you and your family! Thanks for all you do and thanks to Pinkfresh for hosting such an awesome blog hop!

  10. Beautiful cards. I’m going to try layering stencils, since I have trouble with layering stamps.
    Thanks for all the good tips.

  11. The cards are amazing. Your video was fantastic. All your videos are fantastic. Your are amazing. Be safe. Thank you so much. The new release is fantastic.

  12. Your cards are gorgeous! You’ve inspired me to look through my stencils and try these techniques! I do love these PF stencils, too- they are definitely on my wishlist! Thank you for all your wonderful videos!

  13. I really appreciate that you make a technique video and not just make a few cards using the new release. I know that is extra work and it’s greatly appreciated. Your cards are lovely and the new stencils are so cool.

  14. Wow!! I’m speechless. These are amazing. I can’t wait to get my hands inky with these layering stencils. Thank you for sharing!

  15. Jennifer, your videos are the best, I always learn a new technique. Can’t wait to purchase the wreath stencil, it’s one of my favorites in the bunch.

  16. This is such a fun/exciting release! Thank you for showcasing us a lot of new products from PFS. You always amaze so many people! ♥

  17. Amazing ideas and tips as usual. Adding glimmer paste or embossing part will really give a unique look. I will definitely try some of them out when my stencils arrive.
    As an educator I empathize with the challenges parents and teachers are dealing with. It is difficult to say the least.

  18. Am loving these layering stencils. I especially liked what you did with them and all the tips and tricks you showed. Seems to me with the prompts these are easier to layer than the layering stamps. Your cards were gorgeous, as usual. Thanks for all you do for us and how much you teach us.

  19. Yes, you are amazing! I love the way you can figure out ways to layer stencils not necessarily meant for that! Yep, Amazing! Thanks for the inspiration! Someday. . . .
