Favourite Retiring Stamp Sets

Hello and welcome. Today it is time for the Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop. The theme for this hop is our Favourite Retiring Stamp Sets. I have so many favourite sets that are leaving, it was hard to pick. So instead I went for one I loved but haven't used a lot.

I chose to use the Bike Ride stamp set, plus it's matching dies. When I saw the samples for this stamp set in the catalogue I was so excited. I could see so many possibilities. But I had quite a bit on my wish list above this set, so didn't get it straight away. Then when I did buy it, I was side tracked with everything Christmas. So unfortunately it sat uninked for some time. And that is why I just had to choose it for todays blog hop. I couldn't stand the thought of it being uninked any longer.

It takes a bit of stamping to make a card like this, as each individual element needs to be stamped and in some instances stamped again to fill it with colour. But it is so much fun! Then it all comes together when you assemble it. I love all the choices you have too, like with or without a basket, books instead of a picnic basket on the back, streamers on the handlebars. The possibilities are endless and you can make some fun combinations. I decided on apples in the picnic basket on the back and flowers in the front basket.

Now that you have been inspired by my favourite retiring stamp set, it is time to see what the other Latte girls have come up with.

As I mentioned earlier, this stamp set is retiring, so you need to buy it soon before it's gone forever.
To see all the products I have used on this card, please see the product list below.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.


  1. Great card. I love this set too. Love the background too. Thanks for the inspiration

  2. what a fun card and such a sweet stamp set too! I was tossing up to get that at one stage and opted for the Apron set instead. I love your card and it's depth and layers :)
