Doing Wheelies

No, I'm past the age to do wheelies I'm afraid.  I'll leave that to the younger generation!  But, I did use a "wheelie" on this card.......actually a SU wheel  that has all the cute little snow people on it.  Since I never could get the hang of those wheel things, I un-mounted them all from their wheels and just use them as  regular stamps now.



I would say that this was a quick and easy card to do - however, it really tried my patience!  I had  in  mind what it was going to look like and started with centering the sentiment in the middle and down a little more than half way from the top of the card.  The problem came when I started lining up all the snow people........I used four of them from one side of the wheel and four from the other.  FINALLY got it where they're all in a row and now life is good once again!  LOL!   I used some blue Stickles for the snowflakes above the little guys but they keep appearing black in the photo.



There's a new challenge on the block called Addicted to CAS and I'll enter this in their challenge that's themed "snow" this week.

Thanks for stopping by...............

I was never interested in those wheelie stamps. I didn't think I'd be able to use them successfully, but you had a great idea on using them on this card!

TOO cute! Off to follow the new challenge blog too!

Maria :)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Absolutely fantastic! Love, love your card and great stamp you used. I have one wheel stamp that I cannot use, think I'll try your suggestion. Thanks for the tip!

Anne Temple said...

So cute. Great idea to take the stamps off the wheel (those never really appealed to me even if I liked the image they produced).

All the work was more than worth it, Lynn! Wonderful CAS card. I'm going to bet that you'll be doing this new challenge pretty regularly since you're so adept at CAS designs. Love all the white on this one.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Love this card! I think I might have this "wheel" (also removed). I might just CASE this beauty!

gale said...

That wheel is an oldie, but a goodie. I love it. This card is so cute-I love how you put the sentiment in the middle. btw I unmount all of my wheels.

Faye said...

This is adorable Lynn. Very you and very cute. X

Heck, I've barely mastered flat stamps - put one on a wheel & I'd probably quit! I love how your card turned out, even though it gave you fits :) Must go check out that new challenge....

Kylie said...

May I say - WOW. I really love this, Lynn. You have created a brilliantly, perfect CAS card with awesome colours. Love it!! Thanks so much for playing along in our first challenge at ATCAS! xx

I un-wheeled my wheelies too! Much more apt to use them now. This is so cute! A one layer card - so hard for me to comprehend - but I love them! Did you know there are 'one layer card' boards on Pinterest?! This is so cute - I even have that same stamp! Don't think I'll have the patience for the centering thing...I'll let you know. Yours turned out perfectly!

Bonnie said...

I've taken my wheels off too! Never could get them to roll evenly! I can see where this would be a challenge to get them lined up, but you've done a wonderful job! They look like there's a party about to begin...

Shelly Schmidt said...

I have unmounted in alot of my wheels too- love this cute CAS card- I think it would be so hard to center a card like this!

Cazro said...

Wow!I've never use a stamp wheelie, I can imagine this was not easy to accomplish, but you have and it is beautiful. A true CAS card with fabulous content and colour. Thanks for sharing with us on our first challenge at Addicted to CAS, we do hope we see you visiting us again. Caz

Too Darned CUTE Lynn! 8-) Love your Fun little Snowman line up! I have wondered about the SU wheelies too, and have not even ventured to try them, lol cause I doubt I could roll them in a straight line, lol..8-) But your idea to remove them from the wheel and use like a regular stamp is brilliant! 8-) Love it! 8-)

Hugs
Shannon

This is so CASlicious, Lynn! I love it! Good job on getting it to line up! (I can't believe I stamped for ten years without a stamp-a-ma-jig!) I'm pinning it!!

Lesley said...

This card may have tried your patience buts its a great card - but I just love snow men ones - I quite like the wheels but they do get quite a bit of getting used to. But what a good idea to remove it from the wheel to use - best wishes Lesley x

Margaret said...

This is wonderful! I haven't gotten around to unmounting mine yet, but plan to do so. You did a marvelous job lining these up and your snow definitely has a glimmer of blue to it! Fabulous CAS card!
