Freshly Brewed Projects - Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek


Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are giving  you a sneak peek of the upcoming Holiday Catalogue.

And boy, is it an amazing catalogue. I think this has to be our best one yet. And yes I know each catalogue I say how amazing it is. But this one is special. It must be, because my wish list has 99% of the catalogue on it.....lol

Here is a simple and quick card using some items from it.

Candy Cane Lane DSP - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle


OK so this card is quick and simple.....if you like fussy cutting. Those cute gingerbread houses have been fussy cut from a sheet of paper in the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper pack. This paper pack is beautiful. I have used one whole packet of it already and I have only had it a week.

The background paper with the candy cane hearts is from the same pack.

Don't you just love that ribbon ! It is stunning.

The sentiment is from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. That is also a wonderful stamp set, full of lots of cute characters and it has a matching punch.

If you would love a Holiday Catalogue sent to you, click on the image below and register your details.


Now that  you have seen my little sneak peek,make sure you visit the ladies below to see what they have done.


Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,

It's extended...woohoo!!

The availability of Thoughtful Branches has been extended. Woohoo !!

I love this bundle. It is very versatile and covers a lot of occasions.

Thoughtful Branches - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=144328&dbwsdemoid=4008228

It was meant to be going away after tomorrow. But due to some still being in stock, the availability of this bundle has been extended. It won't be around long though, once everyone realises they can still buy it, it will sell out quickly.

So make sure you grab yours here today. Here is some more inspiration using it.

This would make a great card for a teacher, don't you think? I plan on using this card for my sons teachers at the end of the year. The end of this year sees him move schools. He has had the most amazing support teachers for the past 4 years, and we are very appreciative for everything they have done for him. This card will go with a very special gift for them.


Don't forget, if you earned a Bonus Day's Voucher, you only have till tomorrow to redeem.

Freshly Brewed Projects - Spring is Coming

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are talking Spring.

Spring here in Australia is only a matter of days away. I can't believe it is that late in year already. Winter came and went so fast. It definitely wasn't a true winter, we had a very mild one indeed.

I am so happy that Spring is nearly here. It is my favourite time of the year. Lots of flowers start blooming and my garden is full of butterflies. So today I thought I would make a little Spring themed sampler. This would be perfect to put in a frame to brighten up the home after the dreary winter days.


Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228


I used some of the fabulous new stamps and dies from the latest catalogue. The Swirly Bird Bundle is becoming a favourite of mine. I have also use the lovely Botanical Blooms and Botanical Builder Framelits. I hope these stay around for a few catalogues yet, as they are lots  of fun to use. Another new stamp set I used is the Love & Affection set. This is such a great stamp set to get if you love water colouring.

I also wanted to highlight the new InColors in this sampler. They all work so well together, and definitely give you that pop of colour you associate with Spring.

Now it's time for you to check out what the other Latte girls have done.




You can get all the supplies mentioned above by popping over to my online store.

Freshly Brewed Projects - Baby

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week it is all about Baby.

I didn't use a traditional baby stamp set for this project, even though I do have a few I could of used. Instead I have used a set from the upcoming Christmas catalogue.

Cookie-Cutter Christmas - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228


Yes, these adorable little teddy bears were made using a Christmas stamp set. And because the Christmas Catalogue is not available to the public yet I took a photo of the bundle I used.

Cookie-Cutter Christmas - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

It is called Cookie-Cutter Christmas, and comes as a bundle. Now this is one you are going to need. It has so many possibilities.

Did you also notice the background? I designed it to resemble the baby blankets used when I was a baby, that were also still around when my two children were babies. It was so easy to achieve. I just used the Brushstrokes stamp in two different directions in two different colours. So easy and yet so effective.

So back to the stamp set and punch. If you are local to me and love this set, then why not come along to my Christmas Card Class on August 27. We will be creating up a storm with this bundle. Check out the details here and make sure you RSVP to reserve your spot.



And if you are in Australia and would like a complimentary copy of the Christmas Catalogue,  then please register your details here.

Now that you have seen my project, it's time to check out what the other latte Girls have been up to.



Please don't forget that you can purchase from my online store 24 hours a day and get it delivered direct to your door.

Have a great day.

Colourful background

A few days ago I shared some cards that were for the Black and Anything Goes challenge over at Off The Rails Scrapbooking. The cards I made were black and featured bright colourful backgrounds. 

Here is a reminder of the cards I made.

Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228


Today I thought I would share how I made these backgrounds. 

I started with a blank piece of whisper white card stock and several mist tubes filled with ink and rubbing alcohol. 
Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

All I did was spritz the card stock all over with the misters. It was as simple as that. 
Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

You get such a different look each and every time you use this technique.

Once the card stock was dry, I cut it up and mounted them all onto basic black cards.

Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

I then used lots of different stamps and framelits to make them all look different.

As you can see that one piece of  A4 card stock made lots of card front pieces. Here are the rest of the cards I made.

Bella & Friends

Have you seen Bella & Friends in the Annual Catalogue yet? It is so stinkin' cute. Dogs are a person’s best friend! Use this cute stamp set with everyone’s best friend to make your friend’s day.

I am more a cat person than a dog person, but I just had to have this set because of it's cuteness factor. Just look at the cute card I made today.

Bella & Friends - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141870&dbwsdemoid=4008228

You're In My Thoughts

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I have been absent as my elderly father has been very unwell. As my mum has mobility and health issues of her own, I needed to  travel interstate to be with her while dad was in hospital. 

But the day after I found out my dad was in hospital, I also received news that a dear cousin of mine was admitted to hospital to have a brain tumour removed. This news was particularly difficult to hear as this lady is the sweetest person you could ever meet. She is always welcoming and will do anything for anyone. You will never hear her utter a bad word about any person. Just a truly beautiful person inside and out. 

As she lives interstate, the least I could do was send her a card to let her know I was thinking of her. This is where the limited time Thoughtful Branches Bundle came in handy.

Thoughtful Branches - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=144328&dbwsdemoid=4008228

Thoughtful Branches - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=144328&dbwsdemoid=4008228


This is an exclusive, limited time bundle. Available now until the end of August. 

Thoughtful Branches - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available Aug 2016 for a limited time - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

These are awesome. There are heaps of stamps in the set and lots of ways to use them. Even better, there are matching framelits. These take the stamps to a  new level.

You can get these at a discount too if you took advantage of the Bonus Days promotion. Now is the time to redeem those Bonus Days vouchers.

Sorry I have been absent

In case you have missed me, I thought I should explain why I have  been absent. At the end of July, my father was rushed to hospital critically ill. He has major heart issues. Since my elderly mother can not be left alone for extended periods, I needed to travel interstate to be with my parents. 

Dad has had a small procedure which will give him a bit more time until they can do major surgery. He is out of danger for now and my brother is coming to stay with mum over the weekend until Dad is allowed home. I will be coming home this Thursday.

I have had no time to create while here. I did pack half the car boot with supplies, but I think that was wishful thinking.  I have missed creating terribly, so watch out for lots of projects when I get home. 

For now, here is some inspiration from the upcoming Christmas Catalogue. If you want one sent to you, then please leave me a message or email me - narelle@simplystampingwithnarelle.com



Thanks for popping by.
Have a great day.

Cheers,
Narelle
