Pretty cards! That is a fun technique! I have the "By the Sea" stamp set. Did some of the images change since I got mine? There were a couple of images on there that I didn't recognize.

I love all of your video's I learn so much and you all present them so well. I am on satellite and have to watch that I do not waste my band usage.  You  NEVER waste my time with needless chatter that doesn't pertain to what you are teaching. It's always down to earth friendly teaching. Just love it. Thanks so much to you and the rest of your people for the great video's. I usually hop through all my mail in hopes of seeing StampTV mails and open them first. Thanks so much.

Can't wait to give this a try.  Beautiful backgrounds.  Gina, I miss seeing you on camera.  I always feel like we're friends making cards together.  I so look forward to your videos.

LOL have been saving all my acetate, now I know why.

Great idea and definitely will try it. Like the way you presented this in the video. Simple, easy to follow instructions for each of the 3 ways to create the effect.

Comment by Shari Winterstein on April 20, 2017 at 3:35pm
These are great, soft backgrounds. Will need to try this for sure! Also like the new format for your video! By the way, if I had my way, I would wake up to a new video from you every day! Blessings and joy!

First of all I want to say that I love this technique and can't wait to try it. But please tell me this is not going to be your new format for your video's I have always enjoyed the way you are so interactive and do your video's in real time and not dubbed over. I like seeing your face in your video's. And I miss the little tune at the beginning. It's such a cheery little tune and sets the mood to start stamping. But that's just me. Thanks again!
