Using the Stampin' Around Wheel

Here's my first creation using the Stampin' Around handle with the 'Neighbourhood' Jumbo Wheel. Ideal for New Home cards.. and perhaps scrapbook layouts all about your home (now there's an idea - watch this space!).

After stamping the image on to Very Vanilla cardstock, I coloured it using Stampin' Pastels both with the little foam applicators and using the Blender Pens - I found these very good for colouring the roofs and front doors - tiny areas where you need a bit more control and a bolder resulting colour.

The border punch I used was non-Stampin' Up! I'm afraid (Fiskars Threading Water) - this card was made before I got my SU Scallop Edge punch! The greeting came from the 'Fun & Fast Notes' stamp set - I just stamped it on to spare cardstock, cut it out and inked around the edges for definition.
