  1. Your videos always have so many wonderful examples and your explanations and presentation make them easy to follow and try myself. You created beautiful cards with the amazing new 3D embossing folders and your own personal style. Thank you once again for all the inspiration!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous cards, Jennifer! I am in love with all of these fabulous embossing folders, especially the stunning Tulips!

  3. I love the Tulips and Bergenia folders. I only own one 3-d folder but have lots of older embossing folders to try this technique. As a money-saving tip, I use a rectangle nail sanding block that I picked up at the dollar store about 8 yrs ago. Different sanding grades on each side of the block.

  4. Boy, just when I thought you’ve shared all techniques with us, you come out with this great video! I love these cards and I’m anxious to try this technique myself because I have a ton of “unused” embossing folders. Well, I guess not enough, because I quickly hit your link to Altenew and purchased the Tulip 3D folder (they were out of the Floral Begonia already). I did try to leave a comment on the Altenew Blog, but never found a Comment button!

  5. I love this technique for another way to use embossing folders! Thank you so much! Love the new embossing folders too!

  6. I haven’t used an embossing folder in ages. Now I am going to have to dig the ones I have out and buy some more! I forget how much they add to a card!

  7. You are so creative! I didn’t know there was anything else you could do with an embossing folder! What a great idea! I now need more embossing folders, lol!

  8. Thank you so very much for sharing these wonderful cards with us, dear Jennifer. They are gorgeous — all of them.
    My very best to you,
    Caroline

  9. Wow, gorgeous and colorful cards, the Tulip embossing folder is my fave. Thanks for another awesome video tutorial, now I gotta go through my stash and look at them in a new way.

  10. I am loving all of your card ideas! They are all so bright and colorful. Great antidote to all this snow that most of us are having to contend with. The colors and ideas are certainly creating more ideas. Thank you for everything!

  11. Once again, you have given us loads of beautiful inspiration for using these great new products! Thank you. My favs are the “Thanks Flower” and the “Celebrate Rock Star” cards. But, they’re all lovely.

  12. what an amazing technique!!! So many options and I loved them all. The cards are so creative while showcasing the great backgrounds.

  13. Jennifer, did you have trouble with the blue and green “thanks” card with the Versamark (I assume) ink sliding on the glossy black paper before white embossing the sentiment?

  14. Jennifer, these are stunning. I don’t have any 3-D embossing folders but I plan to try it with some folders that I do have. Love your colors and designs. So excited about this!

  15. Another amazing and do-able technique for every skill level and looks like a million bucks! TY Jennifer for all you do and the hard work made with love that you put into it💝💐

  16. Boy do I need a second job, every time I watch one of your videos I run to shop and recreate what you so lovingly teach us. Loving this awesome release of embossing folders. Thanks Jennifer!

  17. Gorgeous cards and so inspirational. Looking forward to trying some of Altenew’s new embossing folders and these techniques.

  18. OHHHHH, Jennifer! These cards absolutely incredible and such a fun and easy technique!! Can’t wait to give it a try!! Would be a fun afternoon just making backgrounds to make for later cards!! LOVE it!! Don’t know how you do it all the time…coming up with all these fabulous ideas and making such creatively inspiring projects!! YOU are BLESSING!!

    PS Would this technique work with the “original” type of embossing folders, too?

  19. What an awesome technique. I just got some 3D embossing folders so I’m anxious to give this a try. LOVE the tulip embossing folder. Thanks for showing the sandwich for the Platinum and as always thanks for the amazing inspiration.

  20. Such great ombre effects!! …looks like you love brights and the ‘celebrate’ card just had that beautiful blues and greens it needed

  21. Love the embossing folder trick with the sanding block. I have a hard time with my spellbinder 6 and the 3d embossing folders. Looks like you just used a cutting plate on top and I will try that. Thanks again

  22. I love your technique blog and video inspirations!! I love your fresh eye for old techniques for new products or new techniques for old products!!! You help us all keep on our creative toes and I can’t thank you enough!! I REALLY want a couple of these 3D embossing folders and have already run to my craft room and tried out this pop technique on my regular ones!! Not quite as stunning, but exciting to look forward to 😉 Thanks again and have a great day !!

  23. Jennifer, I love this technique…. I only have a few 3-D embossing but I am anxious to try this. Thanks for all you inspiration. You are a beginner crafter’s MOST EXCELLENT TEACHER. Thanks again.
