  1. There is SO much inspiration here that I've watched 3 times already Jennifer! Just placed a BIG order w/Simon for cut & emboss folders which you displayed here & distress ink pads… hauled out my "ancient" perfect pearls as you're right they last forever and I can't wait to make these spectacular pieces of art! As always you are a Creative Mastermind! Thanks for being You!

  2. This video is lots of fun! The cards are beautiful; I’ve already started making some blended backgrounds. It’s great to be able to use my pearls, which are also at least 12 years old. Even without a fixative, they seem more stable used this way, especially since I’m using oxide inks. Thanks, Jennifer!❤️

  3. Hi Jennifer, can I use Distress Oxide inks too? I like this technique. The outcome are beautiful cards 😍 I only have a few embossing folders. Somehow I always shy away from using them. Could you use stencil for the embossing? I have loads of them

  4. I just received a new embossing folder and this technique is exactly what I was looking for…thanks for all your ideas, inspiration and useful tips and techniques!~Tara

  5. I noticed you did not dry the ink. I think I might have made that mistake, so glad I saw your video. Thank you for all your teaching ideas. My cards look nothing like yours, but I still appreciate your time, energy, and creativity. Masking tape is made for paint and could tear the paper…just saying. But these low tack tapes from so many of the craft companies are perfect!

  6. Thanks for reminding me to pull out my collection of Perfect Pearls….and yet it’s at least 15-20 years that I’ve had almost all the colors. Now to get crafting….! TFS

  7. Thanks again Jennifer. Really gorgeous cards. I might be wrong but I think water is a fixative for perfect pearls. This might be why they stay put with damp ink. I think I remember it from a Tim Holtz video x

  8. These card ideas are just beautiful. You made Perfect Pearls look amazing. I love how you left the white border around the outside. I'm an old stamper learning new techniques. Your videos have been so helpful.

  9. Not on topic Jennifer…Remember that Accent Opaque Digital Paper you recommended for Layers and what not? It's no longer available and I was wondering if you had found a similar replacement. TIA

  10. Thanks for this idea, Jennifer! My card making for Christmas had been going more slowly than I hoped, so I tried several of these today. I’m happy with what I’m seeing, and used only things I have. A win-win for sure! 💌

  11. Thanks so much Jennifer McQuire for ALL of your amazing videos and ideas! You have inspired SO many of the cards I make and I cannot thank you enough because I really do find so much joy in card making and sending to anybody and everybody.
