  1. So many famtastic ideas! I love these backgrounds. It’s a great way to stretch our stamps. Looking forward to giving this a try. Thanks once again for a really helpful video and for all the inspiration!

  2. Absolutely INCREDIBLE and such a fun card design that is so versatile! LOVE the sentiment backgrounds and I seem to forget this fun, unique technique! Thanks, once again, Jennifer, for sharing YOU! YOU are BLESSING!!

  3. just when I thought I’ve seen it all, you always wow me with a brand new idea. I absolutely love the “floating” hearts and stars. You have an incredible gift and we are very lucky you share it with us. Thank you!

  4. So many Fabulous and Fun cards!!! I wanted the Friends set as soon as I saw it!! But now I need it sooner!!!! Lol

  5. What a great way to make backgrounds. The two dimensional, using the white pigment ink and then another ink and different design, added so much to them. Wanted to let you know that I made a card using my new tulip die and Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel as per your video that you posted the other day. I LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing your expertise with us.

  6. I love your videos I think I’ve said that before but it’s okay to say it again because it’s the truth. I enjoy so many ideas I can adjust to what I have and some Ideas I can buy the same supplies. My Hubby will come into our office pull up his chair in front of my computer and there we sit and watch how to make your wonderful cards. I have to tell you Nick is usually amazed by what you make and how you go about making them. He has some engineering in his background along with being an accountant. Plus loving to work with his hands and he still can’t get over how you invent not only cards but all the tips and shortcuts in order to make them. Jennifer you are such a talented and a delightful person. Can’t wait to try out those terrific backgrounds. Thanks for all you do.

  7. Another wonderful idea! I can’t wait to try on the alcohol ink backgrounds and card stock this weekend! Thank you for all your hard work and effort! God bless.

  8. Another bunch of fabulous cards to inspire me.
    Did you notice one of the sentiments in the friendship stamp set says “thank you for bring there”

  9. Wow! I love each and every one of these cards. You have definitely inspired me! I make loads of birthday cards, and I’m sure I can make a sentiment background using the various stamp sets I have. Of course, I had to go and buy the CZ happy birthday die and stars to mirror what you’ve made. Love it!

  10. Another amazing video packed with unique techniques. The floating element is brilliant. I can’t wait to try it. Thank you..

  11. Wonderful video Jennifer! love the layering of stamps for a background (the tips of doing a bunch at once)…using the colorful cardstock, the cut out windows – awesome! Excited to give this a go!

  12. Love the floating idea, I’m going to look through my word dies with new interest, thanks for the inspiration! How do I save this video on your website? I created an account, but cannot seem to find the way to save it for my return vist…?!

  13. Wow, cool post. I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real hard work to make a great article… but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though
