  1. Love your card Idea’s with vellum my favorite is the first one by way I enjoy your long videos too.
    Thanks for ALL that you do for everyone.

    Thanks for Sowing your Seeds Of Kindness today.
    🥰💕😊

  2. Wow, who knew you could use vellum in so many ways. They are so gorgeous can’t wait to give this try. Thank you for always inspiring us.

  3. Oh my, Jennifer, you have outdone yourself – these are beautiful cards for Christmas, and I can’t wait to try and adapt them using my own supplies! Many thanks for your amazing ideas!

  4. These cards remind me of the old-fashioned cards I received when I was young. They’re beautiful and can’t wait to try this technique with vellum. Thank you for sharing so many amazing techniques. Love your videos!

  5. This video is amazing! I was immediately hooked on these vellum concepts and was dreaming of how to use them. This is an amazing release by Honey Bee Stamps! Wow!

  6. I am a longtime Jennifer Fan, having enjoyed your Inspiration for YEARS! My question one I have researched but never asked, but have been unable to find, so here goes………………………..
    Ic
    I am HEAVILY Invested in ALTENEW Full-Sized LARGE Oval Inkpads [like ALL their COLORS!, which I mainly use for Stencils. I have spent a longtime looking for ALTENEW LARGE OVAL INKPAD HOLDER
    [like I have + love for my Large Distress Inkpads] w/no success, even looking on ETSY! [I found OVAL HOLDERS, I just don’t think they’d work because of their 2 little “finger-grips” on the longer sides] You have done videos [one recently] where you appeared to be using them, but when I looked at that video’s Supply List, it wasn’t listed!!!!!!?? Could you please email me were you got it so I may PURCHASE one?? I have a disability, which renders me pretty pretty much a ONE-HANDED card maker…..for example, I was seriously thinking I’d hav.e.to GIVE UP Stamping, when along came MISTI SAVED MY LIFE! I love the stability these holders give; being in a power wheelchair as well, the less that winds up scooting off my desk +on the floor, the happier I [and my family!] are + the more I can make! LOL Any info you can give would be appreciated!
    my email is…………………………………………………[email protected]…………………………………………………………………………….thanks again!

  7. Fantastic video! I cannot wait to try some of these techniques. I thank you for always sending lots of inspiration.

  8. Not sure which YT of yours I was watching recently but you were using a “knife” to lift the Honey Bee gems off of their packaging. I have been searching for a link to that “knife” but have not found it. I am sure it’s right in front of my face but I’m just not seeing it. Please LMK where I can pick one up.

    I am very thankful this season for YOU! I have been making cards/crafts for many years but you always come up with a different twist on a product I never thought of. Many thanks for all of your ideas. You keep me creative!

  9. I absolutely love everything you make, but these are absolutely gorgeous! I have a couple of “Holiday” (rather than Christmas) cards I need to make and you gave me the perfect idea to make them look classier, so thank you so very much!
