  1. Another great video, Jennifer! So good to be reminded of all the ways you can use embossing powders! Wonderful projects! Thanks so much for the great inspiration! Stay safe! 🙂

  2. Hi Jennifer, I’m going to try the white pigment ink with dots, and again with words in the “wayback” and then put dye ink through several of my stencils. I love the circles you made, but I son’t have a circle stencil so I plan to see what happens when I “stencil” through a Waffle Flower die that has circles. Wish me luck!

  3. Fabulous! I especially like the cherry frame die and the cards made with it. So pretty and dimensional. And all the layered stamping is so cool. Can’t wait to make my own cards from all the inspiration from this video and new SSS products!

  4. Stunning cards and fabulous techniques for embossing powders. I haven’t done the stamping in thick embossing for years but it creates such a wonderful card embellishment.

  5. Love everything but it is so hard to choose, very thankful to you ladies that inspire us with all your creativity❣️❣️❣️🥰

  6. Again a great technique video Jennifer. I love how you showed to embos the text three times while the previous time was still wet. That’s far more beautiful than putting extra Versafine and embos it two times again.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful week.

  7. Enjoyed watching this video as I do all your videos, Jennifer. I remember doing the butterfly technique many years ago and will have to try it out again. Thank you for sharing and for all you do.

  8. These are all fabulous tips and tricks. I’d never seen most of them and particularly love the butterfly creation you did into the embossing powder heart! Wowza.

  9. I toatally got distracted with your blog. Soooo much inspiration. You are one of my favorite artists. You are so talented. Your work is appreciable. Thank you for sharing your art.

  10. So many ideas, so little time. j/k I’m definitely going to try these out. The butterfly that looks like chipboard was something I did over 20 years ago before chipboard was as readily available as it is now. I forgot about that technique. Thank you for the reminder. Your cards are gorgeous as always!

  11. I love all of these cards! Sometimes we need a reminder of tips we’ve forgotten about! Thank you for the inspiration!
