Blogger’s Challenge and a video tutorial

For today’s Blogger’s challenge we were to use the theme “Love” since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.

So I went ahead and made a lovely card *grin*. I mean, I made a card with LOVE in mind but didn’t make a traditional Valentine’s Day card. You want to scroll down below the photo of the card, so you can watch a little “Tip Video” as a bonus today.

Here is my card:



Always, Wheel “Friendly Words”

Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede

Soft Suede, Early Espresso

Victoria Crochet Trim, Antique Brads, Dimensionals

Scallop Border Punch

The following video is going to show you how you can convert the wheels into a regular STAMP. Lot’s of people shy away from using the wheels… but now they don’t have to do that anymore! 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tutorial and will start to use those wheels as stamps some more now…
