  1. Aaack, I don’t have any layering stamps to try this technique out myself!! Guess what I’m going to have to get myself!! LOL!! I’ve actually done that embossing trick with the clear embossing powder over coloured ink!! Love the acetate window idea and will be trying that out soon!!

  2. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS cards and AWESOME tutorial!!!
    WOW – LOVE the double embossing and top layer embossing, LOVE the window strip too!!!

  3. I don’t know which is more genius, the faux embossing or the clear panel. I don’t many 2 step stamping sets, but I’m totally looking for ways to use the clear panel on my next card!

  4. Awesome card and fabulous video! Jennifer sure knows how to explain her processes/techniques so we can understand. Beautiful card!

  5. i love everything about this card, the layered fishes, with eyes, before Jennifer added the eye they looked dead ;-) the seaweed , see through panel and the pearl bubbles

  6. Thank you so much for this idea Jennifer!! I’ve often tried to use clear embossing powder after stamping with pigment ink and the end result is awful. Now I can try it with my dye inks and know it will be so much better!!!!

  7. I totally love this set. It is so fitting for a friend of mine because we tell each other to just keep swimming when we are really stressed. Awesome!

  8. This is such a awesome new way to add time great interest to your card, awesome job Jennifer I am so going to get the stamp set!
