  1. What gorgeous cards!! I love nuvo drops, but always seem to end up with that “hershey kiss” top to them. So, I will definitely be trying out some of the tricks for those!

  2. Great video – thanks for this Jess! I’m a magpie too! Loved that comment. Gorgeous cards too. And thanks for the tips on Nuvo Drops – I love the look of them but am not good at applying them!

  3. On the card with the sentiment you make my world brighter, I would like to know what you used to emboss the flowers. Some type of glitter embossing powder, but what specifically?

  4. Beautiful cards! And call me crazy, but I can’t convince myself to use Nuvo drops too much… they’re a great idea, but I rarely find them “perfect” enough for my projects… enamel dots are much more expensive, but they’re always perfectly shaped…

  5. Thank you for this video! You touched on some of my favorites and a few new sparkles for me to add to my wish list.

  6. I love how dots, jewels and glazes have a way of bringing a card to life! Just the perfect touch!

  7. Thank you for sharing tips and tricks when using these embellishments and the beautiful cards you used them on!!

  8. Sometimes I am wondering that such little things like embelishments can make a big difference on a card. I love that you showed these today Jessica in your stunning serie. Thank you so much.

  9. Yes! Always love embellishment recommendations as there are so many out there! Thank you for sharing

  10. Wonderful video and beautiful cards. Loved your suggestions! I was just about ready to add Nuvo drops to my card when your video popped up. Prefect timing! I used all of your ideas and the card turned out wonderfully. Thanks Jessica!

  11. WONDERFUL cards!
    THANK YOU for sharing and INSPIRING :)
    PS – my new-to-me Nuvo Drops were waiting for me to be inspired to twist the cap for a crafty workout!

  12. Wonderful embellishment ideas! My favorite “go-to’s” are still candy dots and gems but they’re all fun!
