Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

In today’s video, Melanie shows how to easily transform the wintery frame from the Festive Frame stamp set into one perfect for all your fall cards by just the way you color and embellish it with one of her other popular sets, A Year of Leaves.

Awesome!  I love when you change up the "intended" use, and show alternative ways to use your frame sets. 

Melanie, there has got to be a new frame book coming out!  You have already demonstrated so many uses for your other frame sets, including using the frames together.  You did that with the Fabulous Frame and, the Branching Out set, which was brilliant, btw.  As is this card!  I'm in awe of your creativity!  Truly.

I'm a huge fan of all these frame sets!  HUGE fan!  LOL  Thank you for all your wonderful videos!

This is an amazing technique - I would never envision turning a Christmas themed stamp into a fall piece!  Thank you Melanie :)
