Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

In today’s video, Melanie shows you how you can layer two of her different frame stamps over one another to achieve a whole new frame and several new layouts! The oval stamp in Branching Out nests perfectly into the Fabulous Frame window. Additionally, use the birds, flowers and berries included in Branching Out to accent the stamped frames to suit the season and occasion.

Melanie, I just purchased a gently used set of Branching Out, so now I am going to give this a try.  So love your ideas.

What a beautiful card, Melanie. You're so talented!! I look forward to your videos because I know I'll learn something new with each one of them. I also appreciate how you  coordinate the stamps and present new possibilities. You're just wonderful!!

You are so welcome, Joyce! :)

Thanks Charlotte! The Copics will work, too, no bleed through! :) Sorry I forgot to list them here, I have them on my blog post.  I think the closest matches are R05, YG95, YR23

Beautiful yet simple single layer card, but you are killing me here.  I am in the process of selling my northern home and making my "snowbird home" my permanent address so can not order anything right now or work on any cards.  Your designs and videos are so inspiring but I just have to put on hold till mid Sept.  Can't wait to order this new frame set.  I was wondering though will the copic markers work or will they bleed through?

Oh, my, my head is swimming with ideas.  Thank you, Melanie, for another great video.

Melanie, you absolutely rock!  The ideas that you come up with are truly inspirational, to me!  I love how you talk your way through these videos, and give even more ideas than you are portraying for the particular card you showcase.  Wow. 

I am definitely putting that Branching Out frame set on my wishlist.  I JUST ordered, and I hovered over that so many times, but I wanted some of the newer sets first.  Dang, now I wish I would have ordered it.

I still use the Wild at Heart frame set a lot, and just got the Year Round background stamp in a Grab Bag winnings.  How lucky is that?  teehee

I love your idea sheets on your blog.  Thanks for converting some of those to the Freebies section.  I would love to see more of them there, but, I will take what I can get.  You have spent so much time already, experimenting with these new sets.  Thanks for that.

Did I mention, YOU ROCK??  Well, then I am saying it again!!!!  Thanks for sharing, always!!!!
