    Do you also sell the cards that you make. My twin girls who are 6 years old love watching your videos. We watch it before we go to sleep every single day. They love the cards that you make. If you do sell them how can I buy them for both my girls. Any link if you could send me. We live in Australia. I tried buying a couple of things for them. It is getting a bit expensive for me right now so I was wondering if I could buy the cards from you. Cuz buying supplies for the twins could be really expensive. They wanna be a card maker like you when they grow up. We love you Jennifer Aunty ❤️

    What do you use to "set" the colored pencils once totally done with project, i have see so many youtube videos, curious on what you do. This is a great video & many helpful tools

    Very beautiful cards. I prefer pencils even in everyday writing. I am partial to watercolor pencils, but I do like the wax based and oil based pencils and using the Gamsol. Just because of the price I use the Spectrum Noir, but if you use the right cardstock I can't tell much difference. I just love to color. Hugs to Lila! Merry Christmas to everyone.

    Dearest Jennifer, I can't express enough how much this tutorial means to me. I LOVE coloring but even though I am frustrated with my results using Copics, I still keep practicing in hopes that I will get better. I also love pencil crayons but with hands that are weak from arthritis, using this medium has been the most straining on me so my pencil crayons have been collecting dust. I know there are many others who are affected by arthritis and it definitely makes it much more challenging using pencil crayons when your hands tremble and you have no strength. Your advice, especially stating that you find the pencil crayons even easier to use than Copics, has inspired me and gives me hope and I can't wait to get into my craft room to give it a try. Please know, once again, how much this will mean to me and many others. Many of us are confined to our homes and what crafting means to us is much more than I can put into words my dear. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart and best wishes and happy holidays to you and your beautiful family.

    Beautiful as always. Have you tried the Black Glaze gel pens for eyes? They work great and essentially do the same as the nuvo drops but are much easier to control. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful ideas!

    I never knew about dangers of Gamsol. Since I already had gamsol, found empty bottles with felt top on Amazon. Thank you for your information, love your videos.

    Hi Jennifer, I love your videos and I feel like I go to "stamping and card techniques class" every time I watch your videos, thank you! I have been hesitant to get gamsol because I'm worried the gamsol would leave an oily stein behind the paper…does it?

Time to get my colored pencils out and let them "do the work" for me. Had never thought about using an extra droplet of collage medium to make the heart dimensional — yep — SO CUTE!

    I currently use Prisma colored pencils but love that the Chameleon Colored Pencils are two sided so that I don't have to figure out which pencils blend well. I have had a lot of trouble blending with markers so I often use pencils. Your cards are darling and I love that you shared your coloring techniques with us.

    Does anyone know of a list of Prismacolor pencils that blend especially well together? I have 2 large sets of these and don’t want to spend more $$ when I have 132 colors to choose from! If anyone knows of a list, could you give me a link? I’m another one with somewhat shaky hands and would love to get better at coloring!! Thanks Jennifer, for all the wonderful teaching and encouragement you give! 💕

    Thank you so much for this video.
    I colour a lot and I really appreciate this how to video.
    My only regret is that I live in Australia and a lot of the products you use and recommend aren't available here.
    I do buy from various American companies but shipping cost are high and take anywhere from ten days to a month. Amazon has come to Australia,But they are doing a slow roll out so I'm hoping that 2018 will open up a new variety of suppliers to us here.
    Love watching you create.
    Cheers

    Hi Jennifer, this was a very informative video tutorial today.  Can you tell me, would the Gamsol work with other types of coloured pencil?  The HoneyBee Stamp sets are fantastic and I have just found out that they ship to the UK so whoopee! It is very difficult seeing products being used that it can be heart breaking when I find out that they are a US company and that they do not ship to the UK.  Anyway back to the video, great techniques demonstrated thank you.  :O)

    Jennifer I am so glad to see this video.  Many years ago, I bought the Gamsol and the stubs and the sand paper board for a Make N Take being conducted at a Scrapbook store. Unfortunately, I never was able to do the Make N Take because they were so busy!  So I have had these products for a very long time and never knew how to use them.  I suppose I could have looked them up on YouTube, but to be honest, I completely forgot I had them.  So…..Im tickled that I now know what they are for and how to use them!!! I can't wait to start doing my cards with pencils.  I have so many types of alcohol markers and I have never been very good with them.  Im to impatient. But pencils…..I can use.  And now I know how to make them look terrific. So again, you have helped me to find yet another way of crafting my cards!!!  I have told you before that you are my enabler, but thats ok.  If Im going to have an enabler, I couldn't have a better person!!!! Thank you!!

    I use Mona Lisa from Michaels because gamsol is just a brand name I have never used that so not sure if there is a difference by the Mona Lisa works great just another option for everyone. I also use a small baby food jar with a sponge on the bottom and pour some Mona Lisa on the bottom and dip my paper stump in

    Is there a paper that works best for gamsol?

    Reply
  • Iam Scrappy

    This may sound like a weird question but I will ask it anyway. Have you ever thought about giving the company that sell the products you are show casing a heads up that you are going to feature their products so they can make sure to have a lot of that product on hand so that those of us that watch your videos and decide we must have that product will be able to order it right away? I mean with 245k subscribers they must realize that something causes a lot of people to want a certain product all the sudden. Just a thought.

    I was wondering whether gamsol or baby oil work with water-soluble pencils. Yeah, I could just use water 😀 but I feel like baby oil on a paper stump would be less damaging for the paper. Have you ever tried it?

    Hi Jennifer, Thanks for all of your videos! I purchased the Honey Bee stamps and die for the "Snowbirds" coffee cup card. I've made it, quite similarly to the one you made : ) , and it looks great. In fact, even my 14 year old daughter, who is not quite as excited about crafting as she used to be, thought it was awesome! One question for you– did you somehow adhere down the flap (the coffee cup flap w/sentiment)? It doesn't seem quite right to put the card in the envelope when the lid sticks up. Thanks again and keep the videos coming!

    This is such a good and easy technique for beginners. I'm not good at colouring, have tried yusing markers, water soluble colour pencils , brush pens and find it difficult to control the water distribution. Using regular coloured pencils and gamsol seems easier to work with and probably less expensive than Copics and water soluble colour pencils. I'm def. going to check out where I can buy gamsol where I'm based. Thank you for the tutorial.

    I LOVE your videos!! Thank you so much for the instruction and inspiration.

    I tried this technique. The pencil marks blended to a much nicer visual texture but the color did not move or spread at all. I’ve had no success with shading in any medium and I’ve tried MANY. LOL LOL. This looks like a much simpler way to get really good results but I’ve failed yet again. Is gamsol different than other 100% odorless mineral spirits? I had some on hand so tried that while waiting on my gamsol delivery. Did you use special paper?

    Jennifer, I have used colour pencils for years to just colour, and watercolour pencils for cards. But I like the blends I,it's of regular pencil crayons. Where can I buy the gamsol from? You make it look so effortless, but then you do that with all your projects. Thanks for the help.
