Quick Last Minute Cards
Here's an idea for those of you who have procrasinated or anyone who has to make a lot of cards in a short amount of time. Use the Jolly Jingles wheel on the bottom half of the card. If only doing a card or two, inking the wheel on your ink pad is fine. But, if you are doing lots of cards or any larger sized project (like a scrapbook page), you should use a Stampin' Around Cartridge with your wheel. You can get the cartridges in black or uninked (you just add the color you want with a reinker) for Standard or Jumbo wheels (and uninked only for the Builder Wheels). The cartridge just pops into your Stampin' Around Handle and keeps your wheel inked and stamping until the ink runs low (which is a long time).
Along the top of the card, add any stamp of interest. I've shown two examples below. One with a stamp from a retired set (but there is a very similar stamp in Delightful Dozen -- I actually like it better) and the other with stamps from Jolly Bingo Bits and Tags til Christmas.
The inside of the card has a nice sentiment from Many Merry Messages. I also added the ornament from Jolly Bingo Bits down in the corner.
If you'd like more information about using wheels, Stampin' Up or any other stamping related questions, please feel free to contact me. You can order the supplies to make these cards by contacting me or through my online store.
