  2. Great timing today! I watched Tim Holtz live demo of the brayers and then happened to watch your video. Loved getting the double dose of ideas on using his brayer and those domed foams. Love your extra tips Jennifer. I always find them helpful. Your cards are beautiful!

  3. Oh my, such beautiful dies. I just added a bunch to my wish list. Loved the inking and brayering techniques. Who would have thought there were so many different brayers? Thanks for all you teach us.

  4. Amazing difference that little bit of inking makes! Love all the new dies- especially the basket easel! I want them all! Next time, give me a little heads up so they are not out of stock, okay? 🙂

  5. They are simply stunning! It is nice to see I can add new life to some of my older plain dies with a bit of ink and a few embellishments! That make me very happy 🙂

  6. These have to be one of my all time favorites, so much color. Can’t wait to start making some Spring cards with these flowers. Thank you for sharing such wonderful ideas.

  7. Love your videos! I finally watched all of them. It’s taken me since Dec2019. I’ve learnt a lot from you & enjoyed every minute of it

  8. This is so awesome, Jennifer!! What a difference a little added ink does for plain white or light colored c/s! I LOVE this technique!! YOU are BLESSING!!
