  1. Wow! This is so awesome! So glad that you share your joy and passion with all of us crafters. I will taking this idea when mass producing my Christmas cards! Thank you!!

  2. So much gorgeousness here! Thanks for all the helpful hints. Looking forward to using this technique with some layering dies!

  3. Thanks for another awesome video. This technique will be a real game changer for me when I use layered images.

  4. Thank you for another wonderful video, loving the beautiful and colorful stamp sets, can’t wait to give this jig idea a try.

  5. I love all your beautiful cards you are so talented and I getMY INSPIRATIONS FROM YOU. I have no one to craft with so I spend a lot of time watching your videos thank you for all you do and share.

  6. Omg. They are so awesome. The system is mind blowing. I’m using one where I put negative of die cut and then move die cut to stamp different parts. But I didn’t think to move whole bunch of them at the same time. I always find some ideas in your videos, but I’m not always good in replicating them. Anyway, I love your videos and how you explain things. And again, these cards are amazing!

  7. Amazing jig technique! This will be wonderful to use for the multiples I make for seniors etc.
    Thanks so much for your wonderful teaching!

  8. Beautiful floral cards! Thank you for engineering a more simple technique to help break down the layering process! Thanks for sharing with all of us.

  9. I love layered stamp sets, but they can drive me crazy. Your ideas are GENIUS! Makes me excited to dig them out again and mass produce cards– Thank you!

  10. BRILLIANT!!! Once again Jennifer, you’ve shared such a valuable idea that will save so much time! This is perfect! I LOVE making cards to send and as gifts and tend to do one at a time even when I’ve created a design I love. And of course I have many die/stamp sets that are underused so this is just the technique I need to be more productive. I’m looking at my layered sets with fresh eyes today! You’ve inspired me so much over the years and I truly appreciate you sharing your time and talent with all of us. Thank you.

  11. Thanks for this technique idea. I will definitely use it. I loved seeing all the completed, stamped die cuts you poured out on the table and run your hands through. Heavenly!

  12. What wonderful tips Jennifer! Going to try the jig one & see if I can manage it. Looks easy enough to do. These cards are just beautiful. Be well, be safe & TYFS

  13. I always use your older jig ideas and now this is really a game changer. I make cards for Cards for Soldiers and Because Kindness so usually make several of each style. Feeling blessed to be a part of your wonderful community.

  14. Thank so much for your detailed steps at building these beautiful cards. I am brand new at this. In fact I have not cut my first die cut. Up to now I have only painted my own cards but have always been anxious to create better letters and images. I have many of the supplies but wanted to know what note card and note card supplier you use. I did not see them listed in the supply list. Any help for this beginner will be most appreciated.

  15. Hi Jennifer, I just love your work, I have looked but can’t find a link to the lovely coloured envelopes.
    Greetings from Australia

  16. Jennifer, you knocked it out of the park this time. I’m digging out all of my flower stamp and die sets, seeing how it’s gonna be extra cold where I live in Buffalo, right now it’s 6 degrees. I know it’s probably cold where u live too. What warm cards you have created, and a ray of sunshine to go with it.

  17. Now I know why your work resonates with me. We have a lot in common, Christian sisters, fellow buckeye,, and a love for others! God does have a sense of humor and sends our lives in paths we do not foresee, maybe not to scare us to death. I really want to be able to create like you. Your work is fabulous. I know it just requires practice. I’m such a concrete thinker, I know I need to let go of my inhibitions and try. Practice, practice, practice! Thank You!!!

  18. Awesome cards Jennifer and a stunning video tutorial.
    Very handy to use a jig like this.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have
    a wonderful day.

  19. I’ve used this technique before with success, but you’ve taken it to the next level, and I’ll definitely be putting your wonderful tips to use!! TFS. Love the cards you created. They’re so colorful and cheerful; truly uplifting.

  20. Aloha Jen! I signed up on the FB card link, but had signed up here previously.
    Hope I didn’t mess up!
    Mahalo, Candy

  21. Thank you, thank you, Jennifer for these awesome ideas for stamping many cards at once. That’s one of my goals this year. The last several years I have the week before Christmas to make card sets for Christmas gifts. It was my thought at Christmas that I should start this process way before Christmas rolls around. This video was the answer to my prayers. I’m so excited to try this. Love your gorgeous cards! Thanks again for all the ideas. And the good Lord knows that I have a ton of white card stock scraps to use up. Hope your New Year is off to a great start!

  22. I can’t thank you enough for all the tips you continue to share with us! Jigs and bumpers, brilliant! These stamps from Sunny Sudio and Reverse Confetti are so pretty, especially with the beautiful colors you chose to use. I also love the Honey Bee sentiments. Thanks you for pointing out all the uses of these products!

  23. Wow! Fantastic ideas and wonderful cards! I had a thought: you could create (for the first part of the video) 4 jigs. When you “empty” the first “slot”, you could fill it with another jig and stamp 2 colours at once (first slot and second slot). Then move them all down and stamp 3 colours at once and so on. Once you have all 4 slots filled with jigs, you could be stamping 4 colours at a time. That would speed things up even more!

  24. These are amazing cards! Love the colors and your combinations, Jennifer. Thanks for the tips and tricks using a jig, I am inspired!

  25. Brilliant idea! I got into mass producing cards and I must try this. you always amaze me with your ideas and new tips. I’m so grateful I came across one of your videos couple of years ago, because of you, my cards are now whole different level.

  26. Brilliant idea! I got into mass producing cards and I must try this. you always amaze me with your ideas and new tips. I’m so grateful I came across one of your videos couple of years ago, because of you, my cards are now whole different level.

  27. These are so clever!! I think my favorite is the “share handmade kindness” one. As always you are so inspiring! Thanks for what you do! ❤️🦋💜

  28. OMGoodness! All of these cards are absolutely amazing! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!!! I love all of the ideas for the jig and quicker stamping but I cannot imagine the time involved in making all of the die cuts. FABULOUS!

  29. Such a lovely bouquet of cards today! The jig technique will be so useful and thanks also for the Brutus Monroe Stamp and Stick Mat info. I’ve been using the one you put me onto for quite some time but I think the “cleanability” of this one might make it worth checking out..

  30. Thank you Jennifer for sharing your amazing talent. I absolutely love this technique. I make a lot of cards for local nursing homes and for Cards for Kindness and this will help immensely! 💖💖

  31. Wow!!! What an amazing way to do multiple cards!!! And all the cut-outs you first die cut, and then stamped! I loved how you let the abundance of stamped flowers run through your fingers! This is my favorite video from you. This is going to save me so much time when I make multiple cards. I also like to make multiple cards, once I have decided on the stamps I am going to use. Thank you so very much, Jennifer! Your videos are always an inspiration to me, and I always go away with some new ideas!! Thank you for your wonderful talent that you share with so many people!!

  32. WOW! What a wonderful technique! Can’t wait to try it! I always learn so much from you! You are simply the best!
