Summer Mini Blog Hop!
Welcome to Stop #1 on the Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop! This Blog Hop features 23 Stampin' Addicts member who are sharing their creativity with us. Each stop will feature products from the new Summer Mini Catalog!
You may have just come from Tanya's blog Tinkerin In Ink With Tanya where she showcased GORGEOUS projects using the a la carte stamp Motorcycle.
Today I am showing some ideas using the new Flower Builder Wheels! These wheels are wonderfully versatile since you can customize your wheel by stacking one, two, or three builder wheels into the Jumbo Wheel Handle by using the wheel spindle and spacers. So not only can you switch up the order of your wheels, you can customize your projects even more by using the Triple Cell Cartridges so that each wheel is a different color. Since the triple cartridges come uninked, you can use reinkers to choose your own color combination!
For this first card, I stacked the Posy Party, Thoughtful Friend, and Bees & Blossoms builder wheels together. After I wheeled the images using Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry, I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to add some bling to the center of the flowers. The ribbon is actually the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon--I just folded it in half and ironed it to keep it in place.
This next project shows off the Posy Party Wheel. I wheeled it twice using Lavender Lace--one of the colors we are losing in the Color Renovation. For the tag, I used the Thoughtful Friend builder wheel and my Lavender Lace marker to ink only the word 'friend'. Then I wheeled it and punched it out. The tag also shows the new Bitty Buttons and the coordinating Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack.
This last card is a re-make of an anonymous swap card that I received many years ago. It's been on my pile of 'cute ideas'. It's like a pocket (card) with a hole. ;-) For this card I wheeled the Bees & Blossoms builder wheel with Whisper White Craft Ink.
The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Friends builder wheel and the flowers are from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack. I added a little bit of Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds to the center of the punched flowers. This card also uses three more colors that will be gone after June 30--Apricot Appeal, Close to Cocoa and Gable Green.
Next on the Blog Hop is Yapha over at Rubber Stamping & Card Making with Yapha. She will be showcasing more Builder Wheels--the Birthday ones!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you've enjoyed these projects!
