  1. GORGEOUS cards Jennifer…. I am so in love with that technique! the dies are amazing. Such pretty floral images… great word dies too! Ahhh…. want them all, but the daisy die is my fav. 🙂 Have a blessed Labor Day weekend!

  2. WOW-fabulous cards. I love alcohol ink, but haven’t tried some of the techniques you showed. Learned a lot. Thanks

  3. Perfect timing! I tuned into your most recent post to watch as I was making a card for a relative’s b-day. Got so enthused that I pulled out the alcohol inks and tried your acetate sheet technique. I’m happy with the end result of the card and thank you for jogging my creativity (once again!).

  4. Hey Jennifer! You are just one of the most talented people I watch on YouTube and I try to watch all your videos! I want to learn everything! I love all the products and I love the way you use them. I am going to try the technique with the alcohol inks on the acetate. I can hardly wait until I can get new stuff to play with!

  5. WOW, Jennifer! You knocked it out of the park again. I have a few alcohol inks but have not used them because I’ve been intimidated by them. I love the look of them on acetate and you make it look so easy that I think I will get them out and start playing with them. Thanks for an amazing video and for inspiring me to try something new!

  6. Only the 3rd day and I am loving so many items. Also appreciate the bonus gifts available. Your video was so great and I look forward to trying some of these techniques. My new Glimmer machine will get a great workout! TFS

  7. You always amaze me at everything you do, but this see through alcohol tenchnique is beautiful. That is one I AM going to try. Thank you for posting and in also helping me with all you great ideas!

  8. Dear Jennifer – Great video. I watched the entire thing. Question: for the Happy Birthday card where you foiled on the acetate, you have two gold strips going along the long edges of the acetate. Were those the Concord & 9th metallic cardstock cut into thin strips and then applied over a (probably) 1/8″ adhesive strip? It seemed like you were using a separate product — a metallic strip of some sort. I even went back and replayed the video. I looked through both sets of product links — at YT and here on your blog. Could you reply, please, and let me know? The strips going alongside the acetate do not seem to have a shiny look, as that C9 cardstock has (I have that and I know how reflective it is). It seems that the gold of those strips is more muted, less shiny. Please advise if you can / have time.
    Thanks.

  9. Can’t believe I didn’t leave a comment the first time around. I love using alcohol inks. I just bought a Gemini foil press and can’t wait to try out some of these techniques. Just ordered Tim Holtz air blower…sure beats the straw I was using. Thanks for all these great techniques. I will definitely be playing in my craft room this weekend.

  10. I love the see-through element of these cards, well, and the shine, and the colors! They are all absolutely beautiful! I need to craft more! If only the pain would let up, I would! Hope to try some of these techniques this weekend! Thank so much for the inspiration!

  11. I have been resisting the idea of getting a foiling machine, but that spectacular birthday card has my resolve wavering a bit. Simply beautiful!

  12. This cards and techniques are just absolutely amazing! You never cease to amaze me with your creations! My favorite are the last two with the white flower dies! This is a fantastic technique!

  13. Jennifer, You are an amazing teacher of all things to do with art/cards! I learn so much from your videos and I love the fact that you don’t waste paper and supplies. Thank you so much and keep up the fantastic work and your kind heart!❤️❤️
