Must confess I never knew quite how to use the "Branching Out" stamp set, but you video has shown all and am looking forward to making more cards and also using the Branching Out stamp set.  Thanks for a great video!

It had been too long since I used this set as well, Kim!  Enjoy playing, I'm glad it inspired!

I have this set and I haven't used it in a LONG time.  I'd forgotten the lovely little silhouette birds.  And I'd needed them recently and forgot I had them.  Wonderful video.  Thank you, Melanie.  Your talent at blending color always makes me shake my head.
