Versatile Roller Wheels

This last month, I focused on Thanksgiving and thankfulness for the theme at my stamp clubs. Below is one of the cards we made. It uses the Jumbo Stampin' Around wheel, Bright Blessings (#115626, $8.50). I stamped it onto Naturals Ivory card stock using Early Espresso ink. Then, ran the stamped piece through the Big-Shot using the Texture Plates Kit #4 (the woodgrain one of the 3). To give the piece a more aged look, I sponged some Crumb Cake ink over the raised image.

To finish it off, I tore a piece of Early Espresso card stock followed by a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, and layered the stamped image on top. Then, tied a piece of 1/8" Early Espresso taffeta ribbon and finally added a "Happy Thanksgiving" message from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes (#115370, $36.95) by cutting piece of card stock into a pennat and attaching it with a 1/16" hole punch and some linen thread. This all went onto a Marina Mist card.

So, now I'm thinking Christmas ideas and wondered what I could do with the same layout. Well, below you'll see what I came up with. I used the Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel, Jolly Jingles (#120864, $8.50) from the Holiday Mini Catalog and Cherry Cobbler ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. Instead of using the texture plates with the Big-Shot, I chose to use the Textured Impressions folder, Petals-A-Plenty. After stamping the image and texturing it, I sponged once again with Crumb Cake ink on the top. The only other variations to the card from the previous one is that I used some Always Artichoke 1/2" seam binding and Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake card stock punched along the edges with the Scallop Trim border punch. The "Merry Christmas" image is also from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes. The card base is Cherry Cobbler.

I think that the combinations are pretty endless with all the available roller wheels on the market.
