Video How to Mask & Color Wrapped Branches Card

Good morning! In today’s video, I'll show you how to stamp, mask and color the line art and bold branches along with the tissue wrap container from my Fill it with Flowers stamp set (back in stock!). A beautiful masculine or anytime design, for a nature look without the flowers! I also share some tips for additional elements in the set you might have questions about. Watch to the end for an alternative layout! Please enjoy! Let me know in the comments if you prefer  "A" or "B" layout!

  1. Melanie, I love the way you did these- fabulous cards!

  2. Beautiful cards. My favorite is the A layout.

  3. I like the "A" better.
    I really like your videos. I just love your Stamp sets. Please publish another book filled with new and fun sets and added techniques.
    Please, pretty please, show Copic Numbers next to Spectrum Markers. I have about $800 tied up in Copics, so I really want to use them.

    Thanks for being on Stamp tv.

  4. Definitely like the A better - just more visually appealing to me. Love the set and video!

  5. I like the A card the best. I agree that it is more visually appealing


  6. Melanie, gorgeous card as always. You are going to turn me into an embossing folder junkie. I love all of the ones you use. I prefer the A layout--liked the colors better. When coloring, can you place the cap of the marker with the number showing to make it easier to color along? Thank you.

  7. Beautiful cards...your shading is awesome. I think I like the A a bit better.

  8. Thanks for another great video. I really like version A better. The coloring is lovely for a fall card. I agree with Janice above - I'd like to see Copic alternatives. Just saw on STV you have a new release coming soon. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us next.

  9. Love the A card. Both are beautiful!!!
