  1. Please, where do you find the Lucy’s things “dots” used in the big hugs card? Thank you ❣️

    1. These cards are fabulous!
      Would it be possible to use Tonic Shimmer Powders in a similar way?
      That is, what is the difference between the two products?

  2. Gorgeous colors and as usual some beautiful cards, thanks again for showing us how to make some awesome cards

  3. Ilove all your ideas and how you turned your backgrounds into cards! I have been using this product for about 4 years but often struggle with how to use the background in a card. Seeing all of your examples has really inspired me and thank you for sharing your talent with us! here is a card i did make using a background I made plus a couple where I used the powders as watercolors and painted with them.
    I tried to copy & paste a picture of my cards but wasn’t able to do so. The powders do make beautiful watercolors!

  4. Those are all beautiful! I’m still a beginner, but you’ve given me many ideas. I have a lot of skill-building to do, as well as new supplies to get–as budget allows.
    Thanks!

  5. This should be titled: Jennifer’s Magical Powers, LOL. Seriously though, you have such amazing talent to take products and put them together with easy-to-follow techniques and make FABULOUS cards!!! Thank you for the time you take to help and inspire us ‘amateurs’. 🙂

  6. I ordered the intricate foil background and some Lindy’s powders too. I’ve been looking for a large foil plate. Mahalo nui loa1 🤙

  7. I didn’t see the info for the shiny flat sequins you used….were they called Lucy’s??? Thanks! Amazing video packed with so many great ideas!!

  8. Amazing video once again. Love the technique and versatility of it. A definite must try. Thank you!

  9. Amazing video once again. Love the technique and versatility of it. A definite must try. Thank you!

  10. Fascinating! Wow, those magical powders and the variety of things you can accomplish with them are mind blowing. I can see where it would be fun to just play and make a bunch in one setting. Also, the fact that you can foil on them or work over embossing is so neat. Gorgeous card ideas Jennifer!

  11. Definitely magical cards…. Can’t wait for my powders to get here. Thank you for your creativity and your wonderful videos.

  12. I don’t see the link for those flat iridescent embellishments…you called them “Lucy’s” something or other but a different name for them showed up in the video. Just got these powders and they are very fun to play with! Thanks for another great video

  13. These are some of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen!! I have the supplies ordered and can’t wait to try them. Question –
    Can you use Yupo paper with these powders? You indicated that you used Tim Holtz watercolor paper, but wonder is Yupo is an option.
    Thanks!
    Angela

  14. Love the cards! I got a similar product I haven’t used in ages, but I am going to pull it out now and use again. Thanks so much for the inspiration. Love your work.
