  1. Pretty cards. Looking forward to the video but you gave excellent tutorials on each card. I am going to try the gel press after seeing your fabulous backgrounds. Thank you for giving me the confidence to try something new.

  2. Jennifer, I love all of your cards! I always find inspiration from your projects. I bought a gel press, but haven’t used it yet. Looking forward to experimenting!

  3. Your cards are so beautiful, Jennifer!
    You have inspired me to try a gel press…those backgrounds you created are just amazing!
    I always love your videos because your directions are so easy to follow!
    Thanks again for sharing your awesome creativity with us!

  4. So many great ideas using new and older supplies. Looking forward to watch the video when it’s up.

  5. Beautiful cards. Jennifer you are amazing. Thank you for your great technique. Fantastic video.

  6. I really enjoyed your ideas for expanding stamping using the gel press! And using the Misti and acetate sheet to offset second stamped image gave it such depth!

  7. Your cards are each prettier than the one before! I thought I could pass on the gel press… now I am not so sure😉! Thanks for sharing so many beautiful examples!

  8. So pretty! I really liked the offset stamping where you stamped with ink over the gel press background. A great way to use those background stamps that aren’t used very often. Thank you for showing us this interesting video.

  9. I always love watching your video’s and enjoy trying out your technique suggestions for making beautiful cards. I have purchased a gel press and after seeing you demonstrate using one I am anxious to try it.

  10. Does the image you stamp onto gel press come out reverse image? My friend and I found out that this did happen to us.

  11. Great tips on smoothing out the ink on the gelpress. I’m still a newby in that category! I love how you add without distrating from the beautiful backgrounds! Also, thanks for the extra tip on making smaller envelopes!

  12. I love your gel press videos, I hope that you will keep making them, they make such pretty backgrounds for cards

  13. Awesome technique Jennifer and what an awesome cards.
    Thank you so much for all the time and effort you always put in your post to inspire and teach.
    Stay safe and have a wonderful day.
