  1. Hi Jennifer, your cards are amazing. I used to do cross stitch but haven’t done it for many years. You have definitely given me the inspiration to try it on my cards. Near the beginning of the video you showed some of the background panels you had stitched and one that caught my eye was a plaid background (because I’m Scottish!). Could you tell me the Name and Brand of the die used.

    P.S. I’m really impressed that you can stitch whilst on the treadmill. Me? Well it takes me all my time just to remember to breathe!! 😂

  2. Hooray! It always makes my day when you share your stitching! Thank you for sharing your talent and your fabulous ideas with us!

  3. Amazing cards, I keep thing I will invest in these dies, this video definitely convinced me to give it a try. I for one love the longer videos. Thank for always inspiring us.

  4. Oh I just love these. Sewing on paper was something I loved to do about ten years ago. I will have to get out my supplies again. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  5. I really liked your video. All the different dies and stitches are just beautiful. I have one question, which is about the tiny brush that you use to brush away extra bits of the glimmer foil. What are you using there?

  6. Awesome cards and stunning video packed full with tips and ideas.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful day.

  7. Oh no, another project to make 🙂 I have to get the dies now because I have a whole bunch of embroidery threads to use up!!

  8. These cards were wonderful. Thanks for showing how you do the back of the stitching piece to reduce bulk. Also, thank you for letting us know in the “Sales” emails about the stitching dies over at Spellbinders. Also, there are many of the dies on SSS, so will keep those in mind. Thanks for all you teach us.

  9. Wow what a fun video! I enjoyed learning about stitching cards. Years ago I cross stitched but stamping kinda replaced that hobby. Your cards are very pretty.

    Lila, your Mandela’s were beautiful! Thanks for sharing them with us.

  10. Thanks Jennifer, I love to take my stitching on camping trips. I was running out of ideas. Thanks for the inspiration. I always love your videos unfortunately my husband doesn’t. I like to say “well Jennifer recommended it.”

  11. Hi, JM – Thanks for the informational video. I have not tried stitching on paper, although I used to crochet and knit. I think the cards are beautiful!! I don’t know that I am ready to launch into this aspect of papercrafting, but I watched the whole video, as it was / is very appealing and produces a beautiful result! You are such an inspiration!!! TFS!!

  12. I’m blown away by these gorgeous cards. Your my inspiration always . I used to do a little cross-stitch and I miss it souch lately. Can’t THANK YOU ENOUGH Jennifer ❤️

  13. I’m trying to locate the border die u used on the bear cards to independently cut out the sizzix diamonds. Any help would be appreciated. Betsy.

    1. Hi , I am not sure it it has been been released yet I was in the Spellbinders site and it it is coming soon.

  14. Oh my goodness….you got me hooked on stitching on cards sometime ago and now this fantastic video! Thank you so much for all the time, thought and sharing.

  15. Hi Jennifer!
    I have a question for you about Spelllbinders dies. Have you ever had a problem with the copper colored dies transferring color to your cardstock? I’ve researched several times over the past few years and have never found something to consistently prevent this from happening. Any tips or tricks you could share?
    Thank you for being such an awesome crafter & teacher!

  16. Love these cards! Just a fun idea: when I saw your white Christmas Tree card: for a second I thought I was looking at a wedding cake! Without the tree trunk, I think it would make a beautiful wedding cake to decorate for a wedding card. I love getting more mileage out of my favorite dies!
