  1. Perfect timing with your video, I have a challenge prompt “texture”. Love all your examples, it does look easy but time will tell. I watch your videos all the time and have used a lot of your ideas. P.S. my cat sitting beside me also watched your video, not sure if she is going to start crafting. Thanks for all the great videos, your first one on the Gelli plate got me to open mine and try it.

  2. Hope your back feels better soon! I have so many embossing folders and never seem to use them. You’ve inspired me. Loved all your cards, they were so beautiful.

  3. Your cards and videos is amazing . Love your cards. Thank you for your great tips. Hope your back feels better soon.

  4. More creative inspiration!! Don’t know how you do it, Jennifer!! I can empathize with you about your back…mine is in pretty bad shape but I still do what I enjoy doing!! Gorgeous cards and love the look…easy masculine cards!! YOU are BLESSING!!

  5. Jennifer – I don’t know what is going on – but to watch your videos I would have to sit thru a minimum of 41 minutes of ads… FORTY-ONE MINUTES! I want so badly to watch your videos, and I am willing to watch short ads – but that is ridiculous! You really need to have a discussion with YouTube or find a different way to deliver your tutorials. Thanks for all you do for the stamping world and I hope you find a way to continue!

    1. Unfortunately YouTube picks the content and length of the ads that are shown. 🙁 But we do have the ads at the lowest (least amount and shortest) possible setting, but sometimes they slip through.

      But there should be a “Skip Ads” button on all videos if you get stuck with one of the longer ones. 🙂

  6. I love these cards! I would have never thought to sand them down. You always come up with such creative ways to use your supplies! I am vert excited about these new embossing folders! Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

  7. I love your cards!!! I am so inspired by your projects! Your videos are always amazing and filled with creative ideas.

  8. You always have the best techniques! Foil paper and those 3d folders create an easy but spectacular result!

  9. You always have the best techniques! Foil paper and those 3d folders create an easy but spectacular result!

  10. I love your videos because they’re inspiring and chock-full of information. I’ve been watching some videos as far back as 5 years ago.
    In your opinion, what technique has stood the test of time? And what technique has evolved because of new materials or tools?

  11. I think I am obsessed with the SSS 3D embossing folders!! Your cards and technique are always inspiring!

  12. Such beautiful cards! Thank you for the video! I always enjoy the videos! Hope your back is healing and that you will be back to normal soon!

  13. Oh my! I LOVE how this looks. Thanks for the PERFECT technique for a special wedding card.

  14. Awesome technique Jennifer, love it! Never thought of sanding shinny cardstock like this.
    I hope so that there is something to do about your back problems.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful week.

    May I ask if it’s possible to enlarge the letter size in the block where you write the comment in, they are so tiny I hardly can see what I write.
    Once the comment is placed it’s easy to read.
