I used the Papillon Potpourri and Four You stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today. The Papillon Potpourri stamp set and Bitty Butterfly Punch are available in a bundle for 15% off until September 30 so make sure that you get yours before the bundle goes away! The wood mount bundle is item 135312 and the clear mount bundle is item 135311.
My card design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches #104.
I started by stamping the Butterfly Collection Wheel images in Coastal Cabana ink on a Coastal Cabana card stock panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Wisteria Wonder with SNAIL, then to a Crushed Curry card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Four You stamp set in Wisteria Wonder ink and the Papillon Potpourri butterfly image in Crushed Curry ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Wisteria Wonder, then to the card front with SNAIL.
I cut a panel from Afternoon Picnic DSP, adhered it to a panel of Wisteria Wonder with SNAIL, snipped the banner end with my Paper Snips, then adhered it to the card front with SNAIL. I stamped the Papillon Potpourri images again in Wisteria Wonder and Coastal Cabana ink on a Very Vanilla panel, punched them out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and adhered the Wisteria Wonder butterfly with a Glue Dot and the Coastal Cabana butterfly with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I finished the card front by adding two small rhinestones to each butterfly and three small rhinestones next to the sentiment.
I also stamped the butterfly images down the side of the Very Vanilla panel inside the card.

A note about Stampin’ Around Wheels
Did you know that Stampin’ Around Wheels can be quickly unmounted and changed to flat stamps if you prefer to use them that way? Melissa Davies did a fantastic tutorial showing you how to unmount your wheels and mount them as regular stamps. You can see her tutorial by clicking here.
The rubber comes right off the wheel and you can apply Clear-Mount Cling Foam (item 124236) to the back of the image, then use it just like a clear mount stamp! I use a Standard Cutting Pad (113475) instead of a regular acrylic block when I stamp with my wheels since the wheel images are too long for any of the blocks and it works great. I can use my normal ink pads to ink up the images and I like having a little more control over where the images go than the wheels provide (maybe I’m just a bad wheel driver, but I can’t ever get mine to roll straight!) so unmounting and using the wheels like a clear mount stamp works best for me.
Hope that you’ll give the wheel stamps a try, no matter which way you use them!
