  1. Awesome cards as always Jennifer. Love the technique of using a scoring tool. Thanks for always inspiring me to try new things.

  2. Fabulous cards. Love all the ways you used the scoring tools and inked over the score lines. I will have to try some of these techniques. Thanks for sharing the vieo.

  3. The nontraditional colors you used on the Christmas wreath are just gorgeous. Thanks for a long video — I enjoy them!! And thanks for sharing so many ideas.

  4. Great ideas! I especially liked your last technique of outlining your die. This reminds me of those background dies that just impress the dot details. BRILLIANT!

  5. I relate to the mess ups, I am always dropping things or misplacing them so happy you left them in the video. I love the scoreboard ideas. Thank you for a very helpful video can’t wait to try them out.

  6. Absolutely amazing creative inspiration! You’ve done it again, dear Jennifer! Definitely a keeper on my Pinterest board!!

  7. Wow. You always have so many ideas, and this one is jam packed. Love all the ways you show how to utilize a scoreboard. I have lots of friends who have not bought one because they think it is frivolous. I will definitely be using some of your ideas and share with friends. I think they are great for guy cards (which I make a lot of, having 2 sons and 4 grandsons, not to mention brother-in-laws and friends) and I think it is harder to come up with masculine ideas. I also like lots of the new SSS sets. I definitely want that Halloween stencil. Thank you.

  8. I think I already mentioned this on your YouTube video, but because of your Fern leaf card I ordered that die from SSS with your link, along with a couple more goodies. Sadly, I missed the part about getting a free item on orders over $30, but that’s okay because I am SO excited to get that die I can’t believe it! Love your videos!!

  9. I can’t thank you enough for all the amazing ideas that you share with us. You are beyond inspirational to me. This video was great! 🙂

  10. Oh Jennifer, you never disappoint me in your cards and design! These cards are absolutely awesome! Can’t wait to watch your video! Now I’m broker, was broke now I really broke!💜🤗🍁🍂

  11. Thanks for another great and inspiring video. I haven’t used my ScorBuddy much other than to fold cards, but this gives me lots of ideas. I love that new wreath die and it is going on my wish list.

  12. SSS has really given us a plethera of goodness this STAMPtember! I love so many things. The wreath has stolen my heart and your versions really seal the deal. Love it in every color. Great video.

  13. Love your Background ideas to the card’s you always make beautiful cards to match the beautiful Person that You are!!!!🥰🥰😉

  14. I really love this video. Amazing what you did with a stylis. I bought the wreath and it is on its way already. Can’t wait until it comes. I love the flower frame and will have to get that. It makes such a great statement with only colored or metallic paper.

  15. I love the scoring backgrounds. What a great idea! You made it simple and the results are unique…I can’t wait to use it on-with my new stamps.

  16. Wow, Jennifer, you knocked it out of the park with this one! I do use my score board on occasion to add interest to a card, but there are some techniques in this video that I can’t wait to try out! Thank you so much!

  17. QUESTION: First, I love the cards and your video. I appreciate that you teach new techniques and different ways to use our supplies. I noticed white lines on your Altenew scoring board at 1 inch increments. I think that’s a great idea and would be very helpful. What did you use?
    Thank you for all your wonderful videos and inspiration. I’m a teacher and want you to know how helpful you’ve been during these difficult times. Sending you a virtual hug!

  18. Oh my!!! How embarrassing!! I wanted to ask my question before I forgot (I’m getting old!) and then I continued to watch your video and the answer was there! I know better!

  19. Question: How and When did you pop-up the centers of the Rainbow Hello Card? I could swear the centers were flat when you glued the diecut on the base. The finished card had the centers popped-up and the coloring matches the original blending.

    As always I love and learn so much from your video.

    Thank You Jennifer……You clever girl!!!!

  20. Great video-incorporating the new products with a new technique. All of your cards are so creative. What I appreciated most was how you showed alternate ways of achieving the look, no matter what supplies one may or may not have. Truly appreciate your thoughtfulness for everyone’s wallet 🙂

  21. The cards and techniques are all great. I love how you detail everything, and I really love how you think outside the box. I’m working on bringing out my creative side and watching how you put things together is inspiring. My favorite SSS new product is the Witch Please stamp/die set and the new collaboration with Honey Bee Stamps.. I look forward to more from you. Thank you!
