Builder wheel fun and tutorial

I finally had some time to play around with the new builder wheels in Stampin Up summer mini catalog.  These are the three I ordered so many stars, birthday and candle crazy.  You need to order the builder wheel spindle and spacers separately, then you put cap on to clip into jumbo wheel handle.
This is with out any spacers and putting cap on end of spindle.




I then used a uninked triple cell cartridge and put in tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie and melon mambo inks.  Careful, mine got a little juicy from over-inking- I needed to roll on paper towel to get rid of excess.

Fun background as you can see rolling through 3 different colors.  However, you can also use the spacers included and just use 1 or 2 wheels at a time.
this is a card my upline Erica made using that technique and just rolling through an ink pad vs. using inked up cartridge.
