Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel
This is probably my favorite wheel. I guess I just like fall. We get a reprieve from the hot summer, but we don't have to wear a coat yet. Spring and Fall are hands down the best weather there is.

This is a quick and fun card. Normally you just wheel and do not pay attention to where the wheel starts or ends on your card, but since I wanted to highlight the two leaves shown with a ribbon on the left, I did need to turn my wheel to the position I wanted before I wheel it on my card. I then cleaned my wheel, inked it with pumpkin and on a scrap of Vanilla card stock wheeled enough to get my leaf. I repeated this step with the Olive, and cut out the two leafs.

Stampin' Up! sells empty cartridges so you can make a cartridge any color you want with a reinker, but if you are just going to wheel the distance of a card, you can ink up your wheel with a ink pad. You just cannot wheel more than 7 inches or you will run into the part of the wheel you already wheeled and run out of ink. With a cartridge you can wheel almost forever. I love to wheel on bags and tissue also.
