I had a customer recently order some wheel stamps and then ask me for more information about how to use them. So, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to practice creating more videos for my new YouTube channel. Its amazing to me that I’ve been intimidated by the idea of creating videos but now that I’ve started it is a lot of fun and so much easier than I imagined! Yay!
Anyway, so I created a video going over the basics of wheel stamps and then decided to create a second video where I used the Cupcake Wheel stamp and showed a few different ways to use the stamped images from the wheel on the same card. Since I was trying to keep it simple, I created an almost complete card and then showed a few samples of what you could do to it with the wheeled images. And then after I was done filming, I picked one configuration and came up with this:
I kept it simple in the end and just colored in the images with my markers and then used a cut and colored image from some scrap paper to make an extra embellishment. I even popped it up on a dimensional to help make it stand out. Isn’t it just the cutest cupcake?!
Though now that I’m looking at the cupcakes, I’m thinking I really need to pull out my Dazzling Details glitter and add some sparkle to the card. What do you think?
In the end, it was a great re-learning experience with my wheel stamps and I will definitely have to pull them out more often. I forgot how nice they can be, especially if you have a Stampin’ Around Wheel Guide!
Here is the video I put together… I’d love to get your feedback on what new videos I should create next and how I can make them even better! Leave me a comment and let me know! I’m ready to get started on my next one. 🙂
