Tuesday Tip: Wheeling

I came late to the world of Stampin’ Around Wheels.  My early attempts — as a novice stamper — were not very successful.  I gave up on wheels for years.  Sure, I’d be tempted by some fabulous image and convince myself I should try again, but it wasn’t until I learned some wheeling secrets that I got consistently great results.  Here’s what I do:

  1. Stand up so I have consistent pressure on the wheel
  2. Extend two or three fingers over the top of the handle so that it doesn’t lean to one side
  3. Use a guide

If you don’t have a now-retired wheel guide from Stampin’ Up!, use a thick straightedge — even a Stampin’ Up! catalog works, or the edge of a clear-mount stamp case.  Just watch for any ink from the wheel that might have gotten on the guide.

We’re using the amazing Etruscan Elegance Jumbo Stampin’ Around Wheel in camp this month.  Check it out in the Holiday Catalog — it’s not just for Halloween!
