Laura March 11, 2019 Reply Sharon Nesvog I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this technique!! WOW!! Me thinks I might need to add Alcohol Pearls to my 'Alcohol Ink' stash! 😉 Your tutorials are amazing Jennifer!! Thank you so much for sharing!! ☺ March 11, 2019 Reply CurriedUnicorn Dear Jennifer, I adore your techniques, ideas and generosity in sharing with us, but I'm getting increasingly disillusioned by your use of craft foam, sequins and other single-use plastic items. It's frustrating that so many products are sold in plastic bottles, and I know I'd be hard-pressed to find many tools left if I set aside anything with plastic in – so I'm aware that even the very act of crafting isn't very good for our planet, but you Americans actually have various traditions involving reuse (your astonishing patchworks, for instance) and I'd love to see you tap into that. Your vid with the reused leftover strips was fantastic for that, and I loved it. But it's heartbreaking, all the craft foam, foam tape etc. It's your children's planet too. 😞 Please reconsider. Thanks. March 11, 2019 Reply Sherrill Willis Totally awesome & easy, thank you!! March 11, 2019 Reply jean massey Wow. Just Wow! You break down even the most elaborate looking techniques into simple steps we can easily follow. I saw Tim Holtz demo his lift ink pad using a rubber stamp, but your use of the ink and pen gives another fun way to use the product. The wavy lines you created with the ink “applicators” are so fun looking, and they will truly help those of us who struggle with straight lines. Thanks for sharing your creative genius. March 11, 2019 Reply Jenniece Guevara Loved the cards. You have wonderful ideas for card making and your cards are a work of art yet simple and cute as well as classy and elegant. I enjoy treating myself to your shows. I can't wait to try it myself and see how they turn out. You inspire me! Much gratitude. Keep on doing this for us! March 11, 2019 Reply music cat love You are awesome !!!!! I love your ideas March 11, 2019 Reply Kellie Chasse I have yet to try the Alcohol Ink Pearls – you make it look lovely Jennifer! I have subscribed to show my support. <3 March 12, 2019 Reply Patricia Scoble What a great idea. Looks like a lot of fun. March 14, 2019 Reply Lisa Dow Are you able to use these inks on waterslide paper? I’ve seen colored backgrounds on white waterslide paper so I was wondering how it was made March 18, 2019 Reply m fountain Jennifer, keep those control issues…your tutorials are always so informative. You are a great instructor, thanks for inspiring so many ideas. March 21, 2019 Reply dgmlmax These are all beautiful cards. The technique reminds me of Dee Gruenig, from the Carol Duval show. She did similar things with sponges. March 22, 2019 Reply Cindi's Creative Blessings Amazing, my budget is going to take a huge hit as I am going to buy a ton of the items in this video. As always thank you for sharing. March 22, 2019 Reply Monia Lisa Beautiful :)) Thx April 3, 2019 Reply zoraho Is the blending solution just rubbing alcohol?

I love your theme "share handmade kindness." The stitched cards were not something that I had seen a lot. Loved it. June 30, 2019 Reply Debbie Anderson Oh my goodness, those are the bomb! I am starting to make my list for the Mesa Stamp & scrapbook expo coming up in September. I now have a whole bunch of stuff on the list! I hope my Dad & father in law are generous with birthday money this year. The Friday of the expo is my birthday so it’s my special treat for myself to go. I especially love those foiled sentiments. I have a hot foil machine (the kind that you run thru your big shot), I am hoping they work with that machine. I want to try those sooner rather than later. July 13, 2019 Reply bananashaveice This is genius! My favorite is the rainbow!! TFS! July 30, 2019 Reply Teddie V 🙏 August 14, 2019 Reply Mark Sielski My favorite was the tree as it reminded me of the Joshua Trees we have here in the Desert! It would be amazing to create a desert sunset behind the image! September 2, 2019 Reply K P The rainbow zig-zag looks like a tie-dyed t-shirt 👕 🌈 the ones you used the blending pen look like you took old tie-dyed shirts and used a bleach pen on them! So cool and retro looking September 9, 2019 Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
