  1. I just LOVE these cards, especially the Nativity card! I have sone of these lights and have never used them. You have inspired me to get them out and try them. Thank you for all your wonderful inspirations and ideas. By the way, I thoroughly enjoyed your interview recently on Altenew. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. I watched this video yesterday and fell in love with your cards! I didn’t realize I needed to come over here to the blog to leave a comment, so here I am today. I always love your videos, Jennifer, because you explain things in a way I understand them. I’m a visual learner, so the videos along with the instructions are perfect for me. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us!

  3. Loved your lamp and nativity cards and all of the beautiful details!! The globe design seems so adorable because of all of the layered details! So many small pieces! Your gorgeous dove card was actually my very favorite due to the classic symbol of peace, the Dove! Super blog hop and I have to say, that Pearblossom lights are unique and a fun way to make our cards even more special! Yours were gorgeous!

  4. Love these cards! So appealing, so special for the recipient, can’t wait to send to my four year old nephew. I particularly love the dove which would be a beautiful card anyway but the lights bring it to spectacular.

  5. Love these cards! I have hesitated to use lights before -they seemed complicated. I can see how easy they are and hope to get some soon,

  6. Jennifer, these cards are amazing! I love the Nativity with the focused beam. Your ideas are so great and well presented.

  7. Watching this hop about ez lights has inspired me and gave me a little more confidence to try some cards. Tfs!!!

  8. Hi Jennifer,
    I love all these cards, they are awesome. I have a question off subject. I bought several embossing folders from Simon Says Stamp and I just hate to throw away the packaging. Is there any way to make a shaker card with it? I thought if anyone could think of something, you could! Thanks. Cynthia

  9. I love the nativity scene. It’s what Christmas is allllllll about, and I adore it. Oh Come Let Us Adore Him….

  10. So much fun! I have everything I need to make some lighted cards. My E-Z Lights have been in a drawer for well over a year! It’s time to break them out! Thanks for your clear video!

  11. I’ve been meaning to get some of these for awhile, they’re so fun and look like the easiest version to add some light up to your cards! So fun!

  12. Love all of your creative works of art especially, the lamp post. I have been reluctant about using lights on paper art projects however, after seeing your light tutorial…it’s now a go for lights! Thank You Very Much Jennifer and Pear Blossoms for EZ Lights Tutorials! <3

  13. All of your. cards are inspirational! These are just over the top inspirational. I have a five-pack of the lights and have been hesitant to use them (even though I’ve made cards with Chibitronics).. These look so much nicer, and the product design makes them very user friendly. Thank you for sharing your talent and ingenuity!

  14. Thank you! I have a grandson who is autistic, and am always on the lookout for something different to catch his attention and hold it, even if for a short time. This should do it.
