  1. Time to get the brayer out again! Thanks for the encouragement and all the ideas. Looking forward to the next video.

  2. Beautiful cards and a great reminder to take out my brayer more often.
    Just a little request for you… would you consider doing a refresher video on the best way to mail cards with embellishments? I’m really struggling with getting my cards delivered without damage or even getting delivered at all, even though I take them to the post office in person to get weighed and pay extra for postage! Thanks for the great videos and information you provide.

  3. I always love your videos. You are so creative. Love this one – will have to find my brayer and try these.

  4. Jennifer, you keep pairing a brayer with a gel press, however, the brayer has been around for decades long before the gel plate became a stamping tool. And, BTW, I hate using the gel press!

  5. Beautiful cards Jennifer, love the way you use your brayer.
    Can’t wait to see what beauties you make tomorrow.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful day.

  6. Love your techniques. Will have to dig out my brayer and try this!! Got a gel plate for Christmas and have watched your videos on using the two together. Thank you for always sharing your talents with us.

  7. Thank you, Jennifer! These ideas look fun and do-able and I have a brayer. Your cards always look crisp, clean and professionally made, which, I guess they are! I appreciate your work and your video and teaching styles. Thank you, again!

  8. I love the look you get wit the brayer. Guess I would of never thought to use it without the gel press. Thanks for sharing all your ideas. You are incredible!
