Boys Will Be Boys with Lego

Today I bring you another card featuring some retiring products. Featuring Boys Will Be Boys. This card is incredibly quick and easy to do.

Boys Will Be Boys - Retiring List - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=120700&dbwsdemoid=4008228


It uses just one stamp set - Boys Will Be Boys. And only minimal supplies.

The lego bocks are stamped straight onto the base card. Then coloured with an aqua pen and ink pad. The red card stock was cut just a tad smaller than the white card stock and then the blue card stock cut smaller again. Then the two circles were cut out but the top one offset. Happy Birthday from the same stamp set was coloured with markers and then cut into a banner. 

Don't forget that the retiring products are selling fast. So make sure that you grab your favourites before they are gone for good.


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

Freshly Brewed Projects - Pyramid Pals

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are featuring on the Pyramid Pals framelits and matching Playful Pals stamp set.

When I first saw these in the catalogue I just fell instantly in love. The cute little animals made with them are so darned cute.  But because I have seen lots of cute little animals on Pinterest made with these, I wanted to do something different. Plus when I think of the pyramid shape, one of the first things I think of after the Pyramids of Egypt, is an Indian Teepee. So that's what I decided to make.

I hope it looks like a Teepee. Do you like the cute little bear inside? 

I also decided to make  a card to go with this little teepee.

I carried over the teepees onto this card. The large teepee is one of the sides from the framelits, and the smaller ones are from the small triangle in the packet. The lake on the card is made from stamping the waves in the Playful Pals stamp set a couple of times. And the poles at the top of the large teepee is a foot stamp from that set as well.

I hope you like what I made. Now it  is time to see what the other ladies have made.


Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day and keep on stamping.
Cheers,
Narelle

Loosing our Sassy Salutations

Today I am featuring another stamp set that is on the Retiring Product List .....Sassy Salutations.

I have teed it up with Sheltering Tree. I have used both these sets quite a lot as they are very versatile. The tree  can be stamped for any season and lots of occasions. I have used it for Sympathy, Birthday and even Christmas. Here is what I did with it today.

Sheltering Tree - Sassy Salutations - Decorative Dots Embossing Folder - Retiring Products - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=120700&dbwsdemoid=4008228

I embossed the front of the Mint Macaron card using another retiring product- Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. 

I then cut a few wide strips of different colour card stock and embossed them as well. Then I cut a curve in them. The colours I used were Cucumber Crush and Tip Top Taupe. 

On the whisper white piece of card stock I stamped the small bunch of leaves all over in Mint Macaron. You will notice that they are quite pale. I stamped off before I stamped on the whisper white. Stamping  off is a technique where you ink up the stamp and before you stamp onto your project you stamp onto a scrap piece of paper to remove some of the ink. This results in a paler stamped image which is perfect for backgrounds or when you want a softer effect.

The tree was then stamped in Tip Top Taupe and the leaves were stamped in Cucumber Crush.
Thankyou was also stamped in Tip Top Taupe. The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations.  I will miss this one immensely as the set has a great range of phrases and a fantastic font.

I tied some Mint Macaron ribbon and Linen Thread aroud the whisper white panel. This is one of the new ribbons coming in the new Annual Catalogue. 

The last step was gluing on a couple of silver sequins on the tree using the Fine Tip Glue pen.

As I have mentioned, I have used a few retiring products on this card, so make sure you grab them before they are gone for good.


Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day and keep on stamping.
Cheers,
Narelle
