    This was fabulous to watch!

    Oh my goodness! These are just so fabulous! You’ve totally inspired me to get busy on a special thank you card that I need. I just happen to have that sending smiles die so I’m leaning that way although I really LOVE all 4. Great idea to make this a series!

  • Reply Wendy September 14, 2020 at 6:15 pm

    Appreciate the real-time blending as I struggle with smooth blending. I will keep working at it! Thank you.

    So beautiful! I especially love the gorgeous purple!

  • Reply Mylene September 14, 2020 at 6:34 pm

    I love when you work with rich Autumn colors! Gorgeous!

  • Reply janet September 14, 2020 at 6:37 pm

    How beautiful, thank you for doing this. The colors are perfectly done!!

  • Reply GiniK September 14, 2020 at 7:14 pm

    Love the range of colors and shapes you used. I especially like the dark brown card with the offset circle in warm colors – something unexpected!

  • Reply Tina Crocker September 14, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    I love all of them but the sending smiles card is my favourite. I think it’s because it is on a dark brown background and it makes the colours really pop. I love watching your videos.

  • Reply SherylH September 14, 2020 at 7:44 pm

    Love all the blends because of the autumn colours, but #2 and #3 would be my favorites. It may also be because those stencils are tops on my wishlist! I don’t have many distress oxides so will see if the colours work as well using the original distress inks. I really enjoy any of your blending videos so yes, please continue.

  • Reply PHYLLIS FREESE September 14, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    Beautiful cards. My favorites are #1 & #3. I enjoy seeing the colors you use to blend with, so would love a blending session for Halloween & other seasons & holidays.

    Beautiful autumn cards, love the color blends. Please do more. Thank You for sharing.

  • Reply Silvia September 14, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    I love the leaves the most followed by the lines. Very pretty autumn colours and cards.

  • Reply Annette Deardurff September 14, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    I always love watching you work Kristina! The Best Day Ever is my favorite card of this group but they’re all awesome!

  • Reply Kristie Maynard September 14, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    They are all so beautiful! I think my favorite is the falling leaves one, but I’m loving the Autumn Splendor card with that black background an awful lot. Thanks for sharing this with us.
    Stay safe and stay healthy.

  • Reply Barbara Hill September 15, 2020 at 12:33 am

    I think the falling leaves was surprising. When the stencil was on the yellow looked so bright, but once it was off, there was a warm glow. I think the stencil can make it look really different when it is still on your project. I liked the falling leaves the best, but am really impressed at how different each card looked with the same technique.

    Sending Smiles and Heart were my top picks. I loved them all and have made a note to remind me how gorgeous your blends are.

  • Reply Manon Corbeil September 15, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    The floating leaves is my favorite blend. Always fun to watch your videos !

  • Reply Sherry September 15, 2020 at 6:32 pm

    Loved the circle mother browncrdstock SUPER. Thanks for being such a good inspiration! Hugs,sherry

  • Reply Kristine Boydstun September 15, 2020 at 8:18 pm

    Love these blends! I think my favorite was the “sending smiles” and “you matter” cards. I will definitely be using these colors blends this season!

  • Reply Maureen Reiss September 16, 2020 at 11:32 am

    These are all Gorgeous!!!!

  • Reply Debbie McKelvey September 16, 2020 at 3:11 pm

    My favorites were Combos 1 & 4. I love purple so naturally I loved the heart one. I had a question you list Antique Linen on Combo 1 and in the video you mentioned it but I thought I saw you use Scattered Straw, which I love also. Just curious.

  • Reply Margarita Navarro-Rivera September 18, 2020 at 11:01 am

    Love these color combos! So gorgeous! My favorite is the the mustard seed-ripe persimmons-walnut satin combo with the floating leaves stencil!

  • Reply Alyce September 21, 2020 at 12:33 am

    Thanks for the color combos! Please do more!!!
