Fran's Workshop

Fran booked a workshop to be held at "Scrapbooking Dreams" in Island Falls last night. Her request was that I demo "Wheels". I made 3 different cards utilizing the "wheel stamps". The first 2 I demo'd: Card #1: I inked the wheel in "Pear Pizzazz" ink first, then I inked up just the edges in "Cajun Craze". I used ink pads for my ink colors. I also showed the girls how to use the "Stampin' Around Wheel Guide" for a perfectly straight stamped wheel image: Card Supplies:

  • Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla

  • Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Cajun Craze, Baja Breeze

  • Stamps: Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel, Falling Leaves

  • Tools: 1" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Sticky Tape, Stampin' Dimensionals

  • Accessories: Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels

Card #2:


I love that Stampin' Up! has a wheel that matches a stamp set. I used the "Color Spritzer" on this card once completed, to add little speckles of color. I also used a second wheel with "VersaMark Ink" on both edges of the card:

Side view of Gift Bag:


Measure the bag 5.5 inches from the bottom and snip off the top portion. Using a 11" x 8.5" cardstock piece, cut in half to form 2 pieces that are 5.5" x 8.5". Decorate as you like. Adhere to the front side and backside of the bag. Using a punch of your choice, punch holes at the top to create the handles.
