  1. I enjoy your lessons, Jennifer. I want to make some cards similar to these. Thanks for the tips. Who would have thought of using Fun Foam to make something pop?

  2. Oh, my goodness! These are just lovely. I can’t wait to give this a try. I know my mother-in-law would love a set of these.

  3. Really nice cards and I like the idea of using fun foam. I would like to make a set for my wonderful neighbors.

  4. What a fantastic technique! I never would have thought of it! I’ve seen the dies with words intended to be on the edge, but this partial die technique is fantastic! And I love the addition of dotted line she added with the Paper Smooches die — genius!

  5. Absolutely beautiful. Have tried partial die-cutting twice with some success, but it took me forever; I kept double(triple)-checking. Taping the plates- a simple but brilliant idea. Also love the fun foam tip. Definitely will try this soon.

  6. Just when I think I have everything that I need for card making along comes another wonderful video from Jennifer and I’m off to SSS to buy some more goodies! Absolutely gorgeous cards!

  7. Jennifer, you’ve done it again!! These tips for dies are fantastic as always! Now allI need to do is go through mine and play/experiment!!! Thanks to SSS too for having awesome designers!!!

  8. Very pretty note cards. The video for partial die-cutting was so nice and easy to follow on the video. Jennifer always has such great techniques to share with us.

  9. Wow, Jennifer came out with another great technique. I will try this technique for a birthday card that I will be making soon for my cousin.

  10. Beautiful Cards and another amazing Video by Jennifer! I just LOVE this technique and how she showed every detail on how to make it work perfectly. I admit, it looks wonderful, but I’ve been a bit afraid to try for fear of a FAIL! LOL! One of these days, I’m going to do it exactly like she did…step by step, so it works for me! So happy that she shares these awesome tips with us all! The design is so pretty and the cards are truly a wonderful gift I’ll bet Colin’s teacher will adore them! I would, that’s for sure! I also LOVE the die that Jennifer used today, and have added it to my SSS Wish List!! Happy Christmas to you all!!
