  1. Wow! You always get SO MUCH out of your supplies. I just got a die cut machine (Gemini Jr). BTW it seems you and I are both Geminis, too. I love all these cards and will start making stencils for myself using dies. Fabulous!
    Thanks so much!

  2. Beautiful use of the boho die! I put in an order yesterday, not really regretting passing that die up. Arg! 😁

  3. I cant tell you how many times I go back to my dies and revisit a technique you have presented. Love this one. Thanks. And thanks to SSS… love ya both!

  4. All of these cards are gorgeous. I am especially drawn to the card with all the layers of dimension. And also the card that you used the stencil portion on. But they are all so pretty.

  5. Thank you! I love being able to stretch my supplies and learn new techniques, plus seeing all your gorgeous cards is inspiring!

  6. I love the fresh vibe on the Boho Circle cards. The colors are incredible….. Thank you for the inspiration! 😍🙏

  7. This Boho die is so cool! I love all the designs and the dimension you achieved using it as an embossing folder!

  8. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us Jennifer. Your wonderful creations have helped me with my anxiety and even just watching your videos has helped.
    These cards are truly beautiful and I look forward to creating some with dies I have at home

  9. Thank you for showing so many variations and tips for using the same product. I like seeing the different effects from each. I think you’re convincing me to start making multiples and variations when I make cards… I’m really noticing that and it looks like a great way to get more from my creative efforts.

  10. Awesome cards !!!
    Love all the vivid colours that you used.
    Didn’t think I could use like that my dies.!
    Thank you for sharing.

  11. I am forever blown away by how many ideas you have if only I could remember them all. This die, stencil idea is the best.

  12. Fantastic like usual I was waiting for you to give examples how to use this stencil since I was going to buy it. I love your work!

  13. Beautiful cards and wonderful techniques! Thanks for sharing all your ideas. My favorite is when you made the impression using the die on the stenciled card, what a unique effect!

  14. Another great series of cards. I love the idea of using dies as stencils to get more use out of my dies and to expand my stencil collection.

  15. A great set of eye-catching cards, Jennifer! So many helpful hints as always makes this video special! Love that you can use this idea for lots of different occasions! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful inspiration! Take care! 🙂

  16. The Boho Circle design is a favorite of the release! Love the die and the stencil! Beautiful cards in pretty color combos!

  17. Absolutely love this new release. The cards you make are awesome. Love how you use this gorgeous die as a stencil to really stretch supplies. Love your videos. Thanks for all the inspiration

  18. SSS has so many great products. I’ve been inspired by all of your fabulous designs, Jennifer. Keep up the great work!. Thank you!

  19. For sending cards with gems, I use any thin foam in packaging or old padded bag envelopes. I cut the old bags with the trimmer to various sizes to sit over the card. In some bags the bubble wrap peels off the outer layer which makes it thinner..

  20. Wonderful cards! I think the color combo of your “Thanks Appreciate” card is my favorite. I love the look of the circle die on a square card.

  21. My main aversion to stencils has been their lack of dimension but thanks to you I can see myself digging mine out and using them much more frequently. They have such a good price point and if they turn out half as lovely as yours I will be thrilled! Thank you so much for sharing all of your amazing knowledge!

  22. Such a great video with so many ideas. I love how you embossed with the die to get more dimension with your stenciling.

  23. Such amazing inspiration and education, as always. Beautiful cards and I’m motivated to practice this technique!

  24. Love your cards – the colours are beautiful! Thanks for all the ideas on how to use die cuts, such as masking off sections.
