Wheel Image as Focal

I only have a few wheel images from Stampin`Up! When I bought them I really liked them but I find that I don`t use them very often. Recently, I saw that someone took theirs off the wheel and uses them like a flat stamp. I am tempted but I haven`t tried it yet. Maybe.
I did make a bunch of these cards using one of my all time favorite wheel images. I used versamark on the wheel and then covered it with white embossing powder. A bit of paper piercing and a sentiment and you get some quick and easy cards.
Supplies: Stamps - Garden Annuals (Stampin`Up! - retired), Simple Little Things (Papertrey Ink); Paper - Yoyo Yellow, Brocade Blue, Basic Black (Stampin`Up!); Ink - Basic Black, Whisper White, Versamark ( Stampin`Up!); Other - white embossing powder, paper piercer.
I hope you have a great stampin` kind of day!!

I'm the same way -- tempted to remove the wheel, but haven't built up the courage yet!

Very pretty cards; the white design is striking against the dark background and the colors add a nice pop!

I have taken my one wheel stamp off the wheel and LOVE using it that way, but I never liked wheelin' it at my demos.

Your cards are so pretty and a great way to use the wheel!

Great use of the wheel image. That would make a great quick card set for somebody!

I love your clean & simple cards. I also have been tempted to take the stamp off the wheel. I've started converting my wood block stamps by taking them off the wood and using them on clear blocks. I love this much more, now I can see where I'm stamping. Keep up the wonderful work you do. Thanks for sharing.
