Stampin Up and Craft Robo

There has been lots of talk over at Craftmad about different cutting machines. Also my son who is 15yo has come home from Graphics class excited as he realised my Craftrobo makes stickers the same as the machine at school. We have had a stream of teenage boys here for the past couple of weeks. Robo is certainly has gotten a workout. Anyways, these two events have inspired me to finally make the time to sit down and learn the robo. I have had it for 18 months now and created a few cards with it. These have always used templates that are available. It's time for me to learn the program. So hopefully over the next couple of months I learn enough to create my own templates.

Yesterday, I cut the circles for this card. At the moment I am just figuring out what pressure and cap to use while cutting out Stampin Up card. If anyone reads this and uses a robo and stampin up card I would love to hear what setting you find best.

I used SU Sahara Sand as the base card, then SU Regal Rose, next SU Rose Red paper. Topped with the scalloped edged circles on which I stamped the cute little girl from the SU Nice and Easy Notets set. I coloured her with a blender pen and the SU inkspots. Added three pearl bling. Along the bottom I attached ribbon and a SU Chocolate Chip oval which I cut on the robo. There is acutally the word 'love' on the oval......glitter rub-on.


  1. Hi Merry,your card is beautiful and such a cute little image!!! You can cut Stampin'Up! cardstock by cutting and pasting the image on your screen,so it is there twice but directly over one another,your machine will then cut the image twice and it should be cut right through.Or,once you have cut your image don't remove your mat from the machine but send it through again for a second cut.I hope this helps.

  2. Hello Merry! Jhet here (from craftmad). How are you? I found your blog through Cathy's. I like your card. Thanks for sharing!
