  1. Love your videos, you always give great tips and really explain the technique well. I like your emphasis on using what we already have. Nothing wrong with comfy clothes, love the story if the sweatshirt! Praying for good days for you.

  2. The new Gina K release is wonderful and I love the way you used it. Can’t wait for my Gel Press to arrive so that I can try this technique out. Jennifer u are such a wonderful teacher and inspiration to us all.. Do take care of yourself..

  3. Beautiful cards. Amazing technique. Super helpful video. I love the idea of getting two cards for one, especially when you end up with two different but great looks. I can hardly wait for my gel press to arrive so I can give this a try. Thanks again for sharing your talent!

  4. I have a new found love for my gel press! Thanks for sharing all these new techniques! Love your card samples!

  5. I am so excited to try this with my daughter. We’ve been doing cars together for years and it will be exciting to have a new technique. Thank you so much!

  6. Very cool technique! I have a gel press I’ve never used. I think today is the day! Thank you for your continued inspiration!

  7. Loving this technique, anxious to get a gel press. What are the jewels you used on your cards? Thanks, Phyllis

  8. Awesome technique! Two for one is so helpful when making multiples….thanks so much for another great video!

  9. Those are beautiful. Ï all for soft colors, so i like the secondary print the most. And i love the bird …

  10. Gorgeous cards Jennifer.
    Again a great technique with the Gel plate, I love it!
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful day.

  11. Thanks so much for such an informative class. I bought the gel press and is such an addictive way of doing cards!! 🙂 I have done several already and love this technique. I never thought of me using this technique but I have enjoyed every minute. Thanks so much. I hope you feel better soon, really appreciate all of your time and your beautiful cards!! Thanks so much!!

  12. Thank you for this video! I tried this technique today and while I still need a ton of practice, I can see it being a favorite.

  13. Awesome technique, I love the things you’ve done with the gel press. Thanks for the great inspiration.

  14. Thanks once again for a great video, Jennifer! I bought a gel press after watching your first video and I had a lot of fun creating backgrounds. Now I’m anxious to try it again just as soon as my new Gina K. kit arrives (ordered that the night of her release!). Also, I used your link to the Tim Holtz brayer at SSS and ordered one because I noticed my old brayer wasn’t working quite as well as I wanted when I practiced with the Gel press the first time around. By ordering that brayer I was also able to enter the SSS code for the free “Beautiful” die! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide all those links!

  15. I need an email address from your company PLEASE! I suspect a spam email to my address with an offer to buy a box of supplies. Looking on your blog I haven’t seen an email address. Thank you very much.

  16. These cards were amazing. Was surprised how much the ink smoothed out when dry. So pretty and the second generations prints were amazing. Thanks for letting us know that Amazon has the gel press as every company I deal with doesn’t have them in stock now. I want one!!!!! Thanks for all you do.

  17. Holy Cow, Jennifer!! I can’t wait to play!! Am waiting for my GKD kit and order to be shipped! I LOVE her kits and love that we can use the products over and over! Such a great value! Wonderful video, as always!! Be gentle with YOU!! LOVE the sweatshirt story! Comfy and soft!! Sometimes we just need that security to surround us!! YOU are BLESSING!!

  18. These cards are simple, yet gorgeous! What a fun technique. I’ll have to dig out my gel plate and get started. Thank you SO much for your inspiration.

  19. For some reason these cards remind me of the Easter eggs made with wax resist! I might even try die cutting egg shapes for Easter cards. I really really love the soft 2nd gen prints. Can’t wait to try!
