Honey Bee Stamps & Altenew Stampwheel Collaboration Hop

Happy Friday y'all!!  I'm sharing the details of my card that's in the Instagram hop today as part of the collaboration between Honey Bee Stamps and Altenew!  I was thrilled to be gifted the Stampwheel from Altenew to use in creating my card for the hop.  P.S.: There are some awesome gift cards to be chosen from the commenters over on the hop!  Be sure to check it out!

I'm guessing by now most of you have heard of and/or seen Altenew's Stampwheel.  It is a product that I have been wondering whether or not I "needed".  Haha!

Disclaimer:  I was gifted the Stampwheel with the only expectation being that I must feature it in my card making for this hop.  Any opinions I have are based solely on my use of this product.  I am not required to give any type of review.

For this card I wanted to try out some of the techniques that I've read of that the Stampwheel is good for.  I chose Honey Bee Stamps' Hello Fall stamp set to use to create a circular stamped image.

The Hello Fall stamps are a solid image stamp and I wanted to use the coordinating stencil set to color the leaves.  To have a guide for the stencils, I stamped the leaves in a very light yellow ink.  I knew the light yellow would blend with any autumn colors I chose.

I found that the Stampwheel makes it very easy to leave the stamp on the clear top plate and rotate the plate to form a circle.  The sticky mat included with the Stampwheel held my A2 card panel in place with zero movement!

The next thing I wanted to test was using the sticky mat in the base of the platform to hold the stencils in place.  I used various inks (linked below) to color the leaves with the Hello Fall stencil.  The Stampwheel's sticky mat totally eliminated the need to use tape to hold the stencils!

Before I adhered the stenciled piece to the card base, I wrapped some jute twine around it and then added foam tape to adhere it to the card.  I die cut two circles, one a Deckle Edge and the other a Stitched circle die.  The coordinating colored cardstock is listed below.  I stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Sisters of the Heart set with brown ink.  I added foam to the back to adhere it over the twine.

For a bit of bling I added coordinating gem stickers here and there on the front.

I really did enjoy using the Stampwheel in making this card.  I know that this will not be the last time I use this fabulous tool! Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will join me over on Instagram for the hop!
