Let's have a "wheely" good time!!! By Colleen Kidder (Part 2 of 2)
Use them to create a scrapbook page: Roll a wheel using the same color ink as the card stock such as Ballet Blue on Ballet Blue. Then roll ballet blue on ultra smooth vanilla. Cut this a little shorter than your page and mount it to the top (this creates a rectangle look). Then using the alpha blocks and Brilliant Blue ink, stamp a "title" to the page (such as "JUST ARRIVED") directly on top of your rectangle background. Add pictures mounted to ultra smooth vanilla card stock and you're done.
Wheels are the answer to all your gift packaging problems! Use them to decorate boxes, bags, tags, and even wrapping paper. Roll on standard lunch bags, fold over and punch two holes. Lace raffia through the holes and you have a very simple yet pretty gift bag.
Use the wheels for making Candy Bar Wrappers: You could use the hugs and kisses wheel and make an inexpensive gift to give to the children on Valentines Day or even to send to your child's teacher. Just remove the wrapper from a candy bar (any size, you decide) and measure a piece of card stock the same size. Just roll the wheel on standard copy paper so it will wrap easily around the candy bar. Seal shut. You could also stamp the child's name and glue it to the top of your newly created wrapper or perhaps create a matching label using card stock and a Valentine set.
Wheel on the poly shrink color: in, cut, punch hole and shrink. Now you have a great little charm for your card.
Why use only the ink cartridges in the handle to ink your wheel? Remove the ink cartridge from the handle and then roll the wheel on the Stampin' Up! ink pads. This is a great way to get the color you need if you don't have color cartridge yet.
Cut it Out!! Don't be stuck with "Linear Thinking". Roll the wheel using several different colors of ink. Then cut the images off and apply to your card or scrapbook page. This is a great way to create a "WOW" project with very little effort and you're not stuck with just one color!
Become a Designer! Why only use cardstock to layer your stamped images on? Use the wheels on standard printer/copier paper to create your very own designer paper. Throw a little variety into your cards and add color and texture too! You'll have so much fun that you will see many more ways to use this designer paper than just for layering.
Don't forget the Pearl Ex: Add VersaMark refill to a cartridge and wheel on dark card stock. Then simply brush on your desired color of Pearl Ex and viola'...instant sparkle!
There really is so much you can do with the wheels.
So come on, let the "good times roll!"
Up! It's all about creativity.
