Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Gina for being our guest!

  1. Fabulous ideas for custom textured backgrounds! I’ve seen the tracing wheel tool before but had no idea of its purpose. I’ll definitely need to get one of those.

  2. Clever idea with beautiful results. I need to check in my sewing supplies because I’m sure I still have a tracing wheel from years ago! :)

  3. Gorgeous cards. The video was inspiring and full of great tips and techniques. My old tracing wheel is going to have a new purpose now. Thanks Gina.

  4. This is BRILLIANTLY INCREDIBLE technique, Gina! I think I have a tracing wheel in my sewing box! Haven’t used it in years so need to pull it out! TFS

  5. Thanks for the awesome ideas Gina, going to have to get out
    my Scor board and my tracing wheel, I used to sew so I most certainly have one or more!

  6. Wow! Love these ideas! Just found my tracing wheel in my sewing box! I’m definitely giving this technique a try! Your cards are gorgeous!

  7. I would never have thought to use a tracing wheel to make backgrounds. But it is super cool! I love the effect. I am going to have to see if I have one in my sewing kit that I never use! (too busy making cards to sew.) Thanks for the video and awesome inspiration. Your cards are fabulous.

  8. I love this background technique. I should have watched your video earlier. The day started dreary with clouds and fog, and when I went up to my craft room I couldn’t get inspired. Now I can’t wait to get back up there and try this. Your cards are beautiful.

  9. Great video instuction. Like this idea for an easy to create background incorporating a tool most only use in sewing. A great way to color match.

  10. I used this technique years ago but never uses ink on top of it, that’s awesome!
    Thanks Gina for this great reminder of the technique and the extra tip about the ink on top. Have a great day.
