  1. Thanks for so many beautiful cards and stamps ideas! Jennifer, you inspire me to make extraordinary cards!

  2. I have been following your “teaching moments” for many years, and LOVE your creativity. As a retired Graphic Designer I love the exacting ways you put things together, the use of color in unexpected ways. . I also like that you don’t try to interact with online crafters; I feel like that is very distracting for the students and teacher alike.
    My question is actually directed to the card making community: why is the term “homemade” used for our cards instead of “handcrafted?” I see the difference very powerfully in many art forms. Sewing a dress from a pattern is “homemade,” while creating unique dress from silk that you have dyed in blues, pink and silver, adding belts, shoes, buttons, i.e. accessories–becomes “handcrafted,” rather than “homemade.” I’ve been searching for a stamp for the back of my cards, but apparently I will need to have a personalized stamp made. Or crafted???

  3. These look like they take hours!!! I love the old fashioned look of wax seals. Still searching for a bunny one!

  4. I was gifted a wax sealing kit as a high school graduation gift to use on my announcements. That was 43 years ago. I’m so glad to see this craft coming back. A tip for you. Stamp your wax stamp in metallic pigment ink prior to placing it on the hot wax. The ink will transfer to the wax seal, and it really makes the detail stand out. Have fun!

  5. thought I should warn anyone using a wooden “furnace” for melting wax… Even if you are using a correctly sized tea light candle, the wood can become hot enough to catch fire. It happened to me. It actually charred the inside of the wooden furnace before I realized the flame was not coming just from the candle but from burning wood! I would suggest using a metal “furnace” or switch to electric to heat the wax.

  6. I love using wax seals on my envelopes. Thank you for sharing more ideas! Where can I purchase the clear container to store wax seal stamps? I didn’t see a link for this item at the end of the post.
