  1. Has anyone told you lately how fantastic you are? I am blown away and can’t even begin to figure out where to start. Where is the beginner’s lane? I need training wheels! Thank you for all the great vids and posts.

  2. Your cards are so beautiful. I love the way you present your YouTube videos with such ease. It makes me feel like I could actually do some of these! 🙂

  3. I always love Gina’s kits, and the same goes for what you do with them. You both have very different styles and its great to see what you both create. Thank you for sharing 🤗💖

  4. Love these and the technique, have to get a few items to help me make these but my birthday is here so happy birthday to me!!

  5. I love the heart stencils, and your creative way you use them and a reminder to always look at our stencils in a new way. Thank you for sharing

  6. Wow – what a great bunch of colorful cards and a terrific new masking technique. I especially love the first one! I didn’t see the “alignment sheet” (?) that you used listed on the blog….it sounds so much better than the one I’ve used for years. Thanks so very much!

  7. Fabulous cards and techniques Jennifer! So easy and quick to make but such beauties.
    Thank you so much for sharing your great creativity with us, stay safe and
    have a wonderful day.

  8. I have watched this video MULTIPLE TIMES already & love your beautiful cards and your creativity! Thanks so much for sharing your great ideas and techniques! You are a blessing to all of us who make cards!

  9. Love all your videos. Thanks for great ideas and tips. I have learned a lot from watching your videos. Thanks a lot. Keep up the amazing job.

  10. As always, your videos are fabulous. This one, for me, was particularly inspiring. I TRY very hard to send cards to friends for either no reason or a PARTICULAR reason, but I try to send them relatively often. Then there’s Valentines Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Spring – you know. That’s a lot of postage. And I’m glad to do it. But these cards. These beautiful, fabulous ONE LAYER gorgeous cards. Thank you, Jennifer. Cards don’t have to be 3 layers thick and unbendable – that all need extra postage or get ripped up by the mail machines. Thank you for creating beautiful true one layer cards. I’d love to see more of these. Yes, I should be able to figure them out myself, but – well, you’re an enabler …. ya know?

  11. Thanks for giving me new ideas to stave off cabin fever as I recover from a broken leg!

    I love how you challenge us to use items we may already have in new ways. The single layer cards are simple and elegant.

  12. Hi, Jennifer – Thanks for this video. Your ideas are always insightful and timely. I need to finish watching at a later time as i must get to bed, but the part I’ve watched has been really helpful.
    Thanks so much!

  13. Love all the great techniques in this video! You always inspire me with your videos! Thank you!

  14. I absolutely loved this video with showing us how you can do different masking on various card ideas. I also love Jennifer when you remind us to think beyond a general stencil or stamp, etc. and how else you might be able to use them (be creative).

    Thank you, Jennifer for the wonderful ideas you keep bringing & sharing to the table.

    O PS, I always have great take aways from your Gift Stamping Ideas, or your Favorites for stamping. Please keep bringing those to the table so-to-speak, because it keeps us aware of what some of the new things that are out there to use or give for stamping.

    Happy Stamping!! 🙂
