Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

In today’s video, Melanie shares simple masking for the handle and coloring for Spring Basket and one of its coordinating toppers from Basket Additions 2. Spring  Basket is now available as a clear set, and you will love the restyled version with all the same flowers and basket you already  love as well as some versatile new greetings!  The straight bottoms of several of the toppers require no masking when added to the Spring Basket (or coordinating sets’ containers-Holiday Basket, Beyond Baskets, and Beyond Baskets 2, all available in clear) making  creating these two step overflowing and festive containers a snap!

Love the simple beauty of your colorful card and coloring, Melanie! Thank you for the tutorial. I'll bet lots of people are ready for spring already lol. Wow, clear stamps would be way better for these particular sets. I still have my red rubber ones thought and the Stamp a ma jig, just slows me down a bit but they turn out ever so pretty. Great card and explanation!!!!

Love this. I have the Spring Basket set, but not any of the fillers. I need to look at these more closely. Thank you for the wonderful video.
