Stampin' Around Wheels Go Clear-Mount!

Good Morning, Stampers!

If you are like me, you love the images from the Stampin' Around Wheels but can't get a straight image when you try to roll them onto your paper. I honestly have avoided purchasing them just for that reason!

Well, I have found a great solution and I am excited to share it with you!

 Turn them into a clear-mount image! Yes, you will want to do this with ALL of the Stampin' Around Wheels! I have a step-by-step tutorial to show you just how to do that - take a look:

You will begin with the a pre-purchased Stampin' Around Wheel.
Here, I have the Etruscan Elegance Jumbo Wheel #127868 $8.50
from page 25 of the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Using an Exacto Knife, carefully cut along the seam of the rubber.

Gently pull the rubber off of the wheel. Discard the wheel.

Lay the rubber piece flat. At this point, you can either leave the rubber as is, or in this case, 
I will cut them into (4) individual stamps.

To cut them apart, carefully cut between the individual images.

Adhere the rubber to the Clear Mount Cling Foam #124236 
$10.95 / (2) 8 1/2 x 11" sheets. Pull the top protective layer off.

Carefully lay the rubber on top. This is really sticky and difficult to remove. 
If it is not lined up exactly, no worries. We will take care of that in the next step!

Using the Craft and Rubber Scissors, cut the rubber as close to the edge as possible.

Peel off the top layer to expose the "cling".

Adhere the cling foam stamp to the clear acrylic block and you are to stamp!

Here is a card I made by simply stamping the image (3x) across the middle of the card front in Tangerine Tango ink. Then, I added a piece of Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP measuring 1" x 3 1/2" with a "v" notch to the card front. I inked up the sentiment from the Wacky Wishes Exclusive Hostess 
Stamp Set in Tangerine Tango and Basic Black markers. To finish, I added a small Basic 
Black Taffeta Ribbon to the DSP with a glue dot.


Stamps: Wacky Wishes, Etruscan Elegance Jumbo Wheel

I have a roller stamp from hobby lobby that i've never used because I could never roll in a straight line. So its been sitting in a drawer for years. I was wondering what this was about but now the "clear mount" title makes sense. Thanks for a great idea!

I may have to do this too. I am a bit hesitant to though.
