National Craft Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Craft Month Blog Hop.

If you have hopped here from Stampin’ with Lisa,  you are now at Gather and Create. The next blog is Craftyduckydoodah!

The theme for this month’s blog hop is Anything Crafty with Stampin’ Up! Products! Wow, there’s a challenge. I have one or 2 stamp sets to choose from, LOL! I decided to make a project using the Bike Ride Bundle, it’s definitely a favourite of mine and I wanted to try out my brand new Stamparatus too!  If you’re wondering what a Stamparatus is, it’s a stamp positioning tool. It went on pre-order in December but don’t panic if you didn’t order one it will be available in the Annual catalogue launching 1 June.


Even though the Bike Ride stamp set is in photopolymer I still found it much easier to line the 2 step stamps up with the Stamparatus.


There are so many cute images in this bundle!


Here’s what I created.

It’s Mother’s Day in the UK next Sunday (11 March) and my Mum loves dogs but sadly isn’t allowed one in the building she lives so I created a cute one from stamps, inks and paper instead. He looks very happy to be out for a bike ride doesn’t he? 🙂

Couple of tips and some info:

Standard Card base: Sahara Sand

Real Red Layer – 14 x 9.5cm

Wood Textures DSP – 13.5 x 9cm I used a sponge brayer to colour it with Pool Party ink

Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede onto Smokey Slate scrap .8 x 6cm

The doggy, and sentiment have both been raised up with dimensionals.

Be sure to use the magnetic platform on your big shot, you don’t want to ruin your work.

Feel free to ask if I can help with any other questions.
