  1. I just loved this video. So many ideas and so many techniques. I wish you would share the dies and products you used for the 400 cards. They are just beautiful also.

  2. Wonderful Video.
    Thank you for showing the new Tim Holtz Saltwater Taffy ink. It’s a beautiful color. Reminds me of SC beaches.

  3. This looks like so much fun. Your video is fabulous! and your cards are beautiful. Thank You. I wish I had all of these Honey Bee products and the TH sprays!

  4. Wow! Great and easy techniques. Thank you so much. I tend to get bogged down on making one card and wish I could reach into a drawer and pull out what I want. These techniques are the answer! Fun!!!

  5. I’m really excited to try these techniques, or some hybrid of them. I’d like to know how to use Distress ink in several different forms in one project. For example, if I buy the new Saltwater Taffy color in Distress spray, how can I use it with my other Distress ink colors, which are mini pads? And how can I use both regular Distress and Distress Oxide on the same project without cross-contaminating my pads? I’m new to all of this (as you can probably tell), and super excited to create beautiful cards like the ones you’ve shown.

  6. Love what you create you are one talented lady. I tried to order some of the products you showed and couldn’t get website to take card so went in later and one of the itmes was out of stock. I tried emailing sss and that didn’t go through. I did call and express my disappointment but again you are phenomenal .

  7. Love this video and thanks for the tip about a binder for extras! I don’t have much crafting space and my extras all in various boxes. A binder will make them so much more useable!

  8. Hi Jennifer, thank you so much for allowing us to use your swatch file, however I’ve printed both & saltwater taffy is not on them. Just thought I should let you know 😊❤️🇦🇺

  9. Jennifer, you and Hero Arts are so wonderful at reaching beyond the edges of stamping and rallying our community for good. Can we do anything to rally our forces for Yana Smakula and the people of Ukrainiae?

    1. Hi,
      I was wondering the same. I messaged Jennifer. I feel like we need to hold a fundraiser for the Red Cross or UNICEF or some organization that is intimately involved w/ helping Ukrainian refugees.

  10. Wonderful cards, Jennifer. It’s funny how the new Distress colors are amazingly “needed” even though I did not see a lot of gaps in Tim’s line of colors. Now I am seeing that there was no peach. Duh.

    Please let the stamping / papercrafting community know if you hear of any ways to support Ukrainian folks. I tried some of Yana’s links, but either they were all in Cyrillic (I don’t bank on sites I can’t understand) or there were other issues.

    Thanks.

  11. I always get excited when I receive an alert for one of your videos. ALWAYS so many great ideas. Thank you for all the effort you put into these videos!

  12. Thank you so much for showing us this technique! I received one of your cards after attending the Hero Arts stamp along and still have it up like artwork on a fridge. I love that I now know how the die cuts were done. Thanks again!

  13. Hi Jennifer, I have a question. You mentioned during this video that you use a magnetic plate with your die cut machine for small die cuts to hold them in place. I looked to see if it was on your list, but was not. Do you know if you could just use a thin magnetic sheet that we can store our dies on or is this a special plate? Thanks in advance…LOVE your work, dedication and ❤️ today is going to be a good day!

  14. I love this new color from Tim Holtz. Thank you for showing how to use these products. I’ve been buying the whole sets of Tim Holtz colors didn’t know how to use them. Going to give this a try soon. Thank you Jennifer!
