This post is all about individual people who make cards (not 'company' channels). I follow a lot of card makers, but these 5 are my favorites - I watch their videos first, and I re-watch their videos often.
First up is my favorite card-maker and the person I get most of my inpiration from: Kristina Werner. She is a master of distress inks and she's so good at breaking down techniques to make them easy to replicate or modify to fit my own needs. I also love to see the photos and videos of her cats that she occasionally posts (mostly on Instagram).

And below is a recent video where she uses distress inks directly on the paper and stamps over it with water!
I like Catherine's videos because she is so upbeat all the time and she uses simple products or shares simple alternatives. She also tries different techniques with old materials and usually does it a few times to see how different things effect the technique (more or less water, more or less ink, etc).
