Stamping with your Woodland Embossing Folder

Today I have a male themed card for you. A lot of people struggle making male cards. But  they don't need to be hard. Especially with this technique I am going to share with you today using your embossing folders. Here is the card that I made.


Woodland Embossing Folder - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://bit.ly/2mQlaAZ


This technique does the embossing and  stamping on the card in one step. So easy.

All you do is stamp directly onto the embossing folder. To do this, open up the embossing folder and find the side where the pattern is indented. This will be the side where the pattern is raised when run through the big shot. Normally this is the side with the logo on it. Once you have selected the side you need, stamp your design. On this card, I used the leaves from the Sheltering Tree stamp set.I used three different colours - Old Olive, Peekaboo Peach and Rich Razzleberry. I have done this technique before with the same embossing folder, but used the vintage cars out of the Guy Greetings stamp set. Both of these make for great male cards. 

Once your folder has been stamped on, carefully place your cardstock in as you normally would, then run it through  the big shot. Your card stock will come out embossed and stamped. How cool is that! But what is even cooler is that your stamping looks like it is behind the raised image. So in this card it looks like you have stamped onto the card and then somehow embossed , or embossed and somehow stamped but not on the embossing. This technique is a lot of fun and will have people scratching their heads wondering how you did it.

If you want to recreate this card, then make sure you have a look at the Product List at the bottom of the page. This will list all the items I have used.

Inspired by Alaska



Welcome to the Aim for Alaska Blog Hop.

I am currently doing some training with a lovely group of international demonstrators and we are focused on earning the next incentive trip which is an Alaskan cruise. How cool would it be to be able to cruise in Alaska for free. Yep you read that right. Free. Just one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

What a better way to get excited about the trip than doing a blog hop inspired by Alaska.

When I think of Alaska, I think of a lot of things, but one of the things I would love to see the most is the Northern Lights. I think they are fascinating and really one of the most amazing  things in nature. So here is the card that I made. I hope it resembles the Northern Lights.

Lovely As A Tree - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://bit.ly/2mjpigo

I hope this does look like the Northern Lights. It was relatively easy to do. I used the Shimmery White card stock and sponges to make the colour streaks, and then just black ink for the foreground. Then the Lovely As A Tree was stamped in top. I was amazed at how easy it was to do.

Now that you have seen my creation, you need to check out what everyone else has done. Just follow along the list below. In case you get lost, just come back here, I'm Narelle Fasulo in case you didn't know, and continue along the list.








I hope you get a lot of inspiration from what everyone has created.

Happy Easter

Can you believe that Easter is only 3 weeks away. I love Easter purely because I love chocolate. And it gives me an excuse to break my diet.....lol.

As I haven't actually purchased any easter stamps this year...I know....how could I.... when I decided to do an easter card I had to think long and hard about what I could use. Then I saw an idea somewhere using ovals and circles. So that's what I did, using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Stitched Shapes Framelits -Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://bit.ly/2mX8nxC


 I love my little bunny peeking through the long grass. I bet he is looking for those easter eggs.
The bunnies face was stamped using the Playful Pals Photopolymer stamps. I hand drew the whiskers with the Black Stampin' Write Marker. The easter eggs were made by cutting out a circle using the framelits and then putting the framelit partially back over the circle so that it cuts an oval. The designs on the easter eggs were stamped using the Playful Pals stamp set. The grass was cut using the Fringe Scissors. Happy Easter is stamped from the Crazy About You stamp set. To see the complete list of producs I have used, make sure you check out the product list at the bottom of the page.

There is still time to get all your crafting supplies for Easter. Here are some other great items that you can create with to make some awesome easter gifts.



Easter Suggestions


Actually when I put this list together, I realised that I already own a few sets that have easter greetings in them. That's what happens when you have so many sets, oops. So that means you can expect more easter cards in the near future.
