    1. Thank you for continuing to make videos even though it’s been difficult! God bless you! I really enjoyed this style of video and am excited for these as a new addition to your videos!! I couldn’t really pick a favorite card because I liked all of them!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your video on sharing our cards though they are mass produced ones! Love Erin Lee Creative rainbow but have a different one than you showed. Love the happy feeling of some of her stamps and dies!

  2. Your videos are like balm to my soul! I have not been able to craft for about 10 months, but when I see a Jennifer McGuire video in my email, nothing else (much) matters and I have to stop whatever I am doing and watch it. I love everything you produce but seeing how you create and how your mind works is just amazing. You are such an inspiration and I can’t wait to get back to my card making. I have a hard time being original but your cards and techniques are so valuable to me. I wish you the best in all you do!

  3. I love the rainbows cards and the ideas of mass producing, would love seeing more mass producing card ideas. My favorite is the pink colors with Just a note because it can be used for so many different occasions. I am still mass producing your bird house cards I love that you show us how to make it not only winter but spring & etc. Thank for all your great ideas, but especially helping us look at the many different way to change the cards. Can’t thank you enough.

  4. Hi Jennifer,

    Just found this on Utube, takes longer to pop into my inbox, and watched despite needing to get ready for work. I love this long rainbow and particularly liked the blue toned and gatefold cards you made. Watching your videos kept me sane while off work with a break. Although I couldn’t craft I could watch and rewatch technique videos that showed me how to improve, step back and plan better. You inspire me and lift my spirits. Thank you for being the special person you are!

  5. I really enjoy every single one of your videos, which is really saying something cause I usually can’t sit still for 1 minute! You always inspire me to create even if I don’t own a single stamp, die, etc… that you use in your video. I love to take your beautiful ideas or designs and make them my own with whatever I have and it’s a great reminder that it should always be about the fun and joy of it. Thanks for this video and all the rest, technique or not!

  6. Thanks for all your ideas! Although I don’t have any of these dies, I appreciate your tips about die cutting the rainbow so that it is easier to inlay and little tips like adding the pinpoint background dies-things I would not even think of but make the cards easier and more professional looking. I look forward to all your videos and appreciate the time you take to do them!

  7. I love and learning from you. I’ve been watching for about 10 years now and have made many cards which you have inspired. Right now I’m on a hiatus from buying new items and must rethink what I already have (which is a lot!) So, I’m going to use the stacking circle, oval and hexagon to make my rainbows. The cooler colors are my go to but I am going to try more warm combinations. Love the pinks and purples. Cardmaking has made it easier to get through this pandemic. Thanks for your joyful videos.

  8. Hi Jennifer, I absolutely adore your cards, you are always so inspiring.

    I was hoping to see how you used ‘The Greetery Opposites Attract’ stamp and die set in your video, but unfortunately that part wasn’t shown. Since the die is a solid piece, I was hoping to see how you line it up on the stamped image to cut out. I would love to know your tips/tricks when doing that with stamps and solid dies, as I also own this lovely stamp and die set.

  9. Thank you for sharing your process of mass producing. Your cards are always amazing!!! I’ve been wondering, is there more of a benefit to you if we watch your videos from your blog or from youtube? I’d rather watch on the platform that helps and supports you the most.

  10. Jen, it’s so hard to pick one! I love all the rainbow colors and like that you find a way to use the negative space parts too. I love doing inlay and this is right up my alley. You inspire me on those days that I am drawing a blank at my craft table. I even like going back and looking at the old videos because I always find some tips or ideas that are ‘new’ to me. (I’m 78 and have been stamping for many years, so that’s really saying something. lol) Please keep sharing you genius and wonderful talent with us. Huggsss

  11. Hi Jennifer,

    Thank you for sharing your incredible talent! I’m with you and Lila…the pink-themed rainbow cards are my favorite…especially the one with the blue in the middle!!!

    Best, Christine

  12. Thank you for sharing. All of the cards are absolutely beautiful. I just love all the color rainbow combinations. God bless you for all that you do 💖

  13. Thank you for sharing….just visited her store and ordered one. It’s SOOOO lovely. It will definitely put a smile on people’s faces especially during this time…..

  14. I learned so much, here, and this is not one of your technique videos; how do you do that?! My faves are the rainbow cards that are on a white or light blue background and all of the pink colorway rainbow cards. Awesome. thanks for lots of ideas, once again.

  15. Thank you Jennifer! I was sitting here thinking I needed a rainbow die and then you mentioned using circle or oval dies so I will try that. I love the colorful rainbow on the unicorn card. But my favorite is the pink one that you thought might be your favorite. Thanks also for sharing what you do with all the packaging. I have a closet full that I think I will go sort out.

  16. Jennifer, love these!! Thank you for sharing! Where is the makeup case you mentioned? Be looked through the supplies list but cannot find it. Thank you!

  17. I love the ‘create with me’ series idea. It’s nice to just see card design ideas and not worry about technique. Thank you for doing this.

  18. I love your new Create With Me series! I would love to be with you to see how you create your cards and this is next to the best thing!! During this whole pandemic time, the rainbow has become my symbol of hope! I can’t pick which card is my favorite as they are all so unique and beautiful! I love that you can use what is in your stash and using your ideas and inspiration, create a card that is “ME”… As always, Jennifer, YOU are BLESSING!!

  19. Gorgeous! They’re all fabulous! I love the ones with the large black die cut sentiments, they really POP! Thanks so much for sharing….you’ve brightened my day! Be well!

  20. I love, love, love this style of video! Thank you so much! I think my favorite was the mini slim card because I’ve been planning to try that style.

  21. The unicorn card was my favorite but it is limited depending upon the recipient. The prettiest and most useful to me was the last group of primary rainbow cards and especially the Just a Note due to the font. Really like the video today (as always) with loads of inspiration and thought processes.

  22. Jennifer- I sat up in bed the other night when a lightbulb appeared over my head. I know you like to stretch your supplies, escpecially bacground dies. Why couldn’t you covert your fav b/g die into a slim line background STENCIL, using partial die cutting and repeating once? You could use masking paper, contact paper, stencil sheets whatever to make larger background stencils. If you don’t like them for slimlines, you could stencil two backgrounds simultaneously.

  23. I’m loving the color combination on your “bright side” card! Thanks for doing this video I really enjoyed it.

  24. Jennifer, I love that you share your body of knowledge with us, and your thought process, and how you roll with any errors and show us your problem solving on to fix them. This vulnerability makes me more brave to try new things as well. A suggestion for protecting card fronts with layers… our dollar store has an expanded crafts section and they sell foam sheets that I think are 4×6 size, quite a few in a package, and they are thinner than regular craft foam. Perfect for inserting in envelopes to protect the Layers. Also, I have been wondering.. what do you do with your extra cards? I have been quite crafty during this pandemic (keeps me from losing my mind!). I know you have been involved in some card ministries and you send quite a few out. Just wondering if you have a surplus. Sometimes I feel like I have more cards than occasion to use them.

  25. Oh one more thing, I love these kinds of posts also. I have given up much of social media, except for my beloved Pinterest, so I miss a lot of your work unless someone pins it. Oh! I would totally follow you if you posted your blog entries to Pinterest. Haha

  26. I love that you are sharing your creative process through these ‘create with me’ videos. My favorite card was the one with the whittle unicorn. I also love all the different color combos… I struggle with choosing colors and will now be braver to try unique combos. I too save a lot of the packaging from the stamps to be used in different ways… will now be using them to protect my cards also. Jennifer you bring a smile to our crafting hearts… thanks for all you do.

  27. First let me start by just saying thank you for being there for all of us through the crazy year we had! The support and cards you make for everyone and the crafty informational videos for the crafters!

    A couple videos back, you mentioned something about having dies(circle dies) on a ring and storing them like that. I just wasn’t sure if I missed the video or you just haven’t published it yet. Not a big deal but I just want to make sure I didn’t miss it! Thank you!

    Jen

  28. Love this style video! I learned a lot from all the tips but I also like the way you tried out different ideas before deciding to mass produce. I mass produce a lot of cards to send to family for all the various holidays but during the pandemic I’ve been adding to may list and mass producing cards to send when there are no holidays. It’s good therapy for me and hopefully is also bringing a smile to others. Thanks for all you do for the cardmaking community and for sharing this video. I’m not on any social media so I don’t get to see your Instagram posts but I love watching your videos.

  29. Love your videos, no matter the content. I have searched, I think, everywhere you suggested and I cannot find the make up case you used. Am I missing something?

  30. Jennifer, I really enjoyed the Create With Me Video!!! The colors of the rainbows were so diverse. I personally am like Lila, I love pink!!! But I also loved the inlaid holographic rainbow pieces between the colors!! The Gate Fold card was awesome! Thank you so much for this video! As you said, we need to learn from each other and this video was perfect!!!

  31. Jennifer, Thank you for sharing and being so thorough in your details of products used! All of your cards are bright and beautiful. It is impossible for me to pick just one. I have several rainbow die cuts. The problem I have is that I am such a realist that my rainbows HAVE to be in ROYGBIV order. I love your other color arrangements, but I just can’t do it!

  32. Received the Erin Lee rainbow die yesterday! This is one of the most fun craft items I have ever purchased!!! If you don’t have it, get it. You can make cards quickly and easily with this die. The cloud die came several days ago and together they are the bomb! Thanks, Jennifer, for introducing us to this set of cards. My favorite!
