Wheely Good Fun!!

The current Stampin’ Up! promotion is a fantastic deal, so I wanted to demonstrate some cards made using one of my favourite combinations from all of the stamp and wheel duos, which is the Carte Postale stamp set and Leaves a la Carte Jumbo Wheel.  This is such an elegant set and can be used in so many ways.  I will try to post some more examples over the coming week or so.

And don’t forget that this fabulous promotion ends on the 30th September, so you still have a few days to make the most of it. 

This first card uses a colour combination that I think is stunning for cards and can be good for both male or females depending on what you add to it, and that is of course, black and white.  I like using black and white with orange, or yellow, or in this case pink.  But it looks great with a heap of different colours.  Try it with blue or green for a nice male combination.

This second card is a design that I think I saw on someone else’s blog, but I really don’t know whose.  I have had a bit of a search around on the blogs I frequent on a regular basis but couldn’t see it, so I apologise to who ever owns it!!  However, typically when I go to CASE someone else’s work, it never works out the same anyway 🙂 and I was doing it from memory, so in the end it is probably completely different 🙂

  1. Awesome job as always, Chris. You really can’t go wrong with that particular wheel can you? It looks so dramatic in the black and white but I really love it in the Blue Bayou on the Soft Sky cardstock; just gorgeous. Well done!
