  5. Your shadowbox cards are amazing!! I’m definitely going to try this technique :). The HA kit is also incredible but, alas, not in my budget at the moment. I’m pretty sure it will sell out quickly so at least the bandaid will be ripped off rather quickly and I can move on lol.

Your shadow box designs are adorable & you’ve made them so easy to try that I’ve got to have a go. One other thing I want to thank you for is helping card makers like myself, who can’t afford every new set of stamps & dies that catch our eye. You’ve shown again that with the basics I can make beautiful cards like the makers with a few more craft pennies. Stay safe, healthy & happy creating.

  13. Thank you Jennifer! I love all these ideas and will make my grandson’s birthday card using your shadow box card instructions.

  14. Such a clever ideas you have, my dear Jenny. They are so adorable and not too fussy inspirations. Thank you for the inspiration.

  18. I love the look of this months kit from Hero Arts! I’m seriously loving the creativity possible with the stenciling. The stamp images look so fun to color, also. I love the way you have shown us to do the shadow box technique, not intimidating. I am going to try it! Thank you for everything you give, Jennifer!
