  1. Fun to see! But out of my league financially. And folks that get my cards would never understand the underlying expense. And the card would get tossed at some point. So, you know, it becomes the thought that counts rather than a special die or whatever. But making it for a wall art thing, maybe that would have some lasting value. Thanks for inspiring.

  2. Wow! Another amazing technique. I love that you were able to create two cards each time and the detail you added by doing simple things like dry embossing the dies or heat embossing. I can hardly wait to give this a try. Thanks!

  3. Love all of your videos. You always inspire me.
    What is the name of the mat you are using to ink your designs?

  4. Absolutely great video showing yet another brilliant idea…thanks Jennifer for demonstrating another way to use our dies!

  5. Stunning results when used aa stencils. Thank you fore sharing your creative talents. I love watching your videos,

  6. Stunning cards, I love the look of the laying dies, unfortunately they are too expensive for my wallet. Besides that, I don’t make that many cards a year.
    My favorite dies are from the first two cards, the Eloquent Butterfly Layer set and from those two the first one is my most favorite card. Although I’m normaly a bright colour girl, these soft colours are so gorgeous and it makes the card so elegant.
    Thank you so much for this beautiful inspiration, stay safe and have a wondeful day.

  7. Very interesting technique. Not sure I have any layering, fancy dies to try it. Thanks for showing this to us as it’s beautiful.
