Tribute to Jennifer McGuire

I absolutely love Jennifer McGuire as much as I love chips! And that is a lot <3

What I love the most is her true and tried techniques, multiple ways to use your stamps, inks and all of her storage ideas! The one layer cards are the best and it takes cards from looking easy and simple to magnificent and elegant.

Below are samples I made from one of her more recent blog post.

Six copies (2 of each color)

Supplies: Altenew layering stamps; Altenew Inks; White embossing Powder, 40lb vellum, Wink of Stella and enamel dots.

Please check out Jennifer's website, blog and You Tube Channel
