Time's Running out for 'Free Wheelin'

Have you heard about Stampin' Up!'s great September promotion? Its called 'Free Wheelin' and when you purchase a selected stamp set you get the coordinating Jumbo wheel for FREE! Save $15.95!! Here's a few projects I've put together to show some of the wonderful sets and wheels available on this promotion...
This first one features the set Bodacious Bouquet an the wheel Bodacious. You may recognise this photo - I put it up on my blog after Mothers Day when it was taken. It was a very simply scrapbook Page to make. I simply wheeled the background wit Bravo Burgundy ink on Bravo Burgundy card stock. then made the accent flower by stamping the flowers and leaves in Bravo Burgundy, Apricot Appeal and Always Artichoke. These were then cut out and layered with dimensionals. The photo was matted on Always Artichoke, I added some Apricot ribbon and a round tab for the vital details...viola! (Oh, in case you're wondering that's the faux shaving cream technique Ive used on the biggest flower - another really cool way to use the free wheel!!!! - if you're not sure what I'm talking about email me or leave a comment and I'll tell you how to do it!)

This next one was inspired by Linda Higgins awesome demonstration at Regionals. Lind demoed how to make these fantastic window cards. This one Ive made here with Artfully Asian and the Watercolour Vine Jumbo wheel. These are really easy to make too, you just cut an A4 piece of card in half, score it 10 and 20cm, punch out the window with a 1 3/8 square punch, stamp your image on vellum and stick it in between the 2 front layers!

Another window card, this one is a Christmas card with a difference, made with the Priceless set and So Swirly wheel (this has proved to be by far the most popular bundle!). This is one of the projects we'll be making at my WCMD class (I'll b posting more details on that soon).

This next one is a Bag-a-lope made with the All about Christmas Wheel which coordinates with the Merry, Merry Stamp set. The colours are Very Vanilla, Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke .

Last but not least here's another bag-a-lope featuring Carte Postal and Leaves a la Carte Jumbo wheel. The colours are Very Vanilla, Always artichoke and Bravo Burgundy.

The only set on the promotion I haven't featured is Nursery Necessities and the Nursery letters wheel - which I just ordered for myself this week - so I just might challenge myself to make something and get it on here before Free Wheelin' ends on 30th September! That's right you've only got 10 days left to take advantage of this offer, email me if you'd like more information.

Have a great weekend!

These are all fantastic projects Karen! Love the window cards particularly.
I'm so jealous of you getting to go to Regionals. I wish they'd come to Darwin!
