Stampin' Around Wheels Tutorial

Have you ever used the Stampin' Up! wheels before? Were you aware that we have 3 different sizes: Standard, Jumbo, and Wheel Builder? The Stampin' Around Wheel Builder Wheels were just introduced in our new Summer Mini Catalog (see Pg 8 and 9).

There are so many things you can do with the wheels to create unique and special scrapbook pages and cards. Today I want to show you how to use the Standard Wheel. (same steps for Jumbo Wheel also).

Stampin' Up! Products:
Stampin' Around Handle, standard, set of 2, item #102971
P is for Paw, Stampin' Around Wheel, item #115620
D is for Dog Stamp Set, item #115784
Stampin' Up! card stock of your choice
Stampin' Up! classic ink of your choice

Here is the stamp set and Stampin' Around Wheel (standard size).

The wheel just pops into the handle, pops out when done.
You can purchase ink cartridges that are the perfect size to fit the standard or jumbo handles. The cartridges are recommended if you are doing a scrapbook page. If doing a card, the cartridge can be used but is not necessary.

Let's begin.
Going in the same direction, roll your wheel over your classic stamp pad numerous times. By going the same direction, you will put ink on all of the design on the wheel.

Starting off the edge of the your card, firmly grip the wheel and roll it away from you. Be sure to end off the edge of the card when finished.
Re-ink your wheel before starting a new row.

Follow the same directions as above being sure to start and end off the edge of your card.

Next I stamped the dog from the D is for Dog stamp set. You could color in or add glitter to his collar for more details.

Next I added in a paw print (single stamp from the D is for Dog stamp set) and the sentiment.

Card was easy to make and is perfect for the dog lover in your life. Stampin' Up! also has a stamp set for cat lovers too. It is called: C is for Cat, item #115764. It has a paw print, fish, cat, "C is for Cat", "So sorry for the loss of your little friend.", and "as every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat - Ellen Perry Berkeley.

To clean your wheels after using with a stamp pad: Spritz wheel with Stampin' Mist, item #102394 and roll it across your Stampin' Scrub, item #102642 first in the wet area then in the dry area. Repeat if needed.

Storage of the Wheels: The wheels can be stored in the Stampin' Around Wheel Storage. It comes in two different sizes:
Standard, set of 2, stores 10 wheels .. item #105743
Jumbo, set of 2, stores 6 wheels .. item #105741

The Stampin' Around Wheels are a great way to create borders, backgrounds, and even your own designer series papers.

The wheels are a lot of fun, I have a couple. I have used them at a card club before.

I just bought the regular size handle with one wheel in it and an extra wheel ("Happiness") today. I found these at a discount store. They look new and were well protected, but there were no instructions. The first wheel stamped beautifully, but I don't know how to get it out to try the other one. If I can get it out, I can figure out the ink cartridges -- maybe.

Rosetta ... the stamp wheel should pop out with a little pressure.

Great find too.

Also ... you might want to check out Patty Bennett's blog. She has a great deal of information on the wheels:

Okay, I got the wheel out. Do you know where I can buy the cartridge and ink refill? JoAnn doesn't carry Stampin' Up products.

Mary Director said...

Rosetta Kastama ... I'm no longer a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Stampin' Up! products are sold through their demonstrators only. I know that the wheels and ink cartridges were discontinued a while back. You can roll the wheel over an ink pad (like shown above) if just doing a card. My only suggestion is to watch EBay or contact an active demonstrator to see if they have any still in their own stock.
