Freshly Brewed Projects - Eastern Palace Suite


Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects. This week it is all about the Eastern Palace Suite.

This is a new product suite that was released by Stampin' Up!, a whole month before the catalogue it is in is being released. Here is what I made with it.

Eastern Palace - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - https://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/CategoryPage.aspx?categoryid=31028&dbwsdemoid=4008228

This product suite has a beautiful stamp set, amazing thinlits and gorgeous patterned paper. Plus there are also amazing gold print acetate stickers and beautiful tassles. There is so much gorgeous product in this suite, and eventhough the colours and pattern in the paper lead it to be a more masculine and exotic suite, it is very versatile and can be used for so much more.

I didn't use the complete product suite, but I did use the stamp set and the thinlits. I wanted to show you that the products are not limited to the exotic east like most people would associate with  this product suite.  

If  you haven't seen the product suite yet, click on the image below to see it all.

International Blog Highlight


Today I am so excited to be a part of Kylie's International Blog Highlight.

These are always so much fun because they bring together talented demonstrators from all over the world. I always feel very special to be able to play along.

It's a Male theme today. Here is what I made.



If you struggle with making male themed cards, then this blog hop is sure to give you loads of  inspiration. I find them challenging myself. I think it's because I love using flowers on all my cards. But Stampin' Up! have heaps of wonderful stamps and other products that you can make some amazing male cards with.

On my card today I have used the Bookcase Builder stamp set. This such a great set as it covers so much. You can do a whole range of occasions and themes, even baby cards. And it gets even better. This set is carrying over to the new catalogue. Now I get to play with it more. Got to love that.

Now that you have seen what I have done, make sure you check out what everyone else has done too.

You can even vote for my card too. So I would love you to pop over and show me some love.


If you don't have a new catalogue yet, and you live in Australia,  then register to receive one soon.

Have a great day.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop


Welcome to the inaugural Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. The first of many I am sure. 

Today we are highlighting retiring products. There are so many wonderful products to choose from, but today I chose to highlight the Special Reasons Bundle. I have chosen this bundle for several reasons. First, because it is just so gorgeous. And secondly, because I didn't use it half as much as I should have. I guess that's what happens when there is so much gorgeousness in the catalogue to choose from.

Anyway, here is my card.

Special Reason - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle -  shop here - https://www3.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

I have not only used the retiring Special Reasons bundle on this card, but I have also used some retiring colours and washi tape. I am so going to miss Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Mint Macaron. They are my three favourites from the outgoing InColors, so decided to combine them on this card. Plus I have used the beautiful Affectionately Yours washi tape. Love,  love, love this washi tape. But again, didn't use it half as much as I should have.

Now that you have seen my card, just follow along the list below to see lots more wonderful creations. Have fun!

Freshly Brewed Projects - Retiring Papers


Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects. This week it is all about the retiring papers.

I struggle with using our pretty patterned papers. It's not that I don't know what to do with them, or how to use them. It's just that I don't like to cut them up. Silly isn't it.

I hadn't even opened this pack of patterned paper until this week. And it's retiring, so won't be around after the end of May. I think it's time for me to start using up my stash.

Here are two cards I have made using the gorgeous Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.

Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - https://www3.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

I even decorated the inside too.

And with the circles that were cut out from the card and patterned paper, I made a second card.

Sending Cards

It's May, so that means that it's time to start making and sending my May birthday cards.
Today I thought I would share a nice bright and cheerful one that will be finding it's way into the post this month to brighten someone's birthday just  that little bit more.

Birthday Fiesta Bundle - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=142268&dbwsdemoid=4008228


At the start of this year, I was determined to spread the joy that comes with receiving a handmade card. And one way I thought to do this, was to send as many birthday cards as I could. So I asked all my customers and family and friends to send me their birthdays. And I am pleased to say, that I have managed to send every card for every month to date. Some may have been a tad late, but at least they got sent.

If you want to receive a handmade card that has been made with love just for you, even if its not for your birthday, then please use the contact form on the right and send me a message.

Another recent thing I have started doing, is sending Random Act of Kindness cards. I joined an international facebook group where we send each other cards, and for no other reason than just spreading the love. It is such a fun group and I think several friendships formed will be lasting ones.

The whole sending a card thing must be catching on, because recently our CEO, Sara Douglass, started her own campaign. #MakeACardSendACard This campaign was aimed at all us demonstrators who make cards but then let them sit idly by in cupboards, sometimes for years. Sara wants us to send them. What a great idea. What a fantastic way to brighten someones day.

If you want a card made just for you, I will only be too willing to #MakeACardSendACard just for you. Use the contact form on the right to message me.

I have used the Birthday Fiesta stamp set on this card. This is such a fun set, and the patterned paper designed to go with it, is fun too. With its bright colours and fun prints, it is sure to set the mood for a wonderful birthday celebration. Add to that the matching framelits, and you have some serious party material. The stamp set and framelits come in a bundle, so that means they are at a discount. Here is the bundle below incase you haven't seen it before. But the bad news is, that it is retiring. So you need to grab it before it sells out.

Birthday Fiesta Bundle - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=142268&dbwsdemoid=4008228

While you are in my online store grabbing the Birthday Fiesta bundle, make sure you check out everything else that is retiring. There are some great bargains to be had.




The card I have featured today was one that I did as part of my Markers Class. 


Did you know that you can do more with the Stampin' Write markers than just draw.

Join my Marker Class and learn the many and varied ways you can use them.

Each month you will receive one pack of markers. It will be a colour family pack, and each month it will vary. After 5 months you will have ALL the Stampin' Write markers. 

Oh and there are also little extras included along the way.

There is no lock in contract, or any set amount of months you need to purchase. Just purchase whatever months you like the look of. Easy peasy.

You don't have to commit to each of the 5 months. You can pick and choose what ever months you want to do. See the list below for what colour families will be offered each month.

Each class will contain the markers, plus 5 project kits will full instructions. 

Along the way you will learn lots of wonderful techniques for using the markers.

All of my classes cover techniques suitable for the beginner through to the more experienced crafter.

All my classes are a fun way to get some great project ideas straight to your door for you to do in the comfort of your own home.


So what markers are included when ?

April - Brights
May - Subtles
June - InColours
July - Regals
August - Neutrals


All of this for just $60 per month.


If you can't wait to get started, then Register below.







Once you have registered, I will send you an invoice. Once the invoice is paid, your product will be ordered and the kits assembled. The class will be mailed to all participants towards the end of the month.

Open to Australian residents only.

Let's talk Punches

Do you love the convenience of punches? You can just pick them up with a few stamps and ink pads, and craft anywhere. No lugging a heavy machine around. If you are a punch fan, have you noticed all the ones that are retiring?

Retiring Punches



There are still lots available that haven't sold out. But I wouldn't wait much longer. Once people realise that June isn't very far away, these will start to sell quickly. And don't think that once the new catalogue comes into play, that these will move over to the clearance rack. That is not a guarantee and actually doesn't normally happen.

So if you are a punch lover, get your order in now. While you are in my online shop, make sure you check out what else is retiring, plus the clearance rack, as it has recently been updated.





The new catalogue will be here soon, so if you want one, then make sure you register below.


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

ESAD Eastern Palace Blog Hop


Welcome to the ESAD Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop. Today we are featuring a whole array of amazing products featuring the newly released Eastern Palace Suite.

This suite is just so rich and exotic, just as the name suggests. It contains a wonderful and versatile stamp, the most rich and extravagant patterned paper, superbly detailed thinlits that are just amazing plus a great array of accessories, including stickers and tassles.

So sit back and be amazed at not only the wonderful creations you are about to see, but how wonderful this product suite is.

Here is what I have made.

Eastern Palace Suite - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - shop here - https://www3.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

The thinlits in this suite are just amazing, so I wanted to showcase them. There are so many of them, but today I have used just one. The thinlit is designed to cut the pattern into the card stock panel, but I found that it is just a tad smaller  than one of the largest circles from the Layering Circle Framelits.  So once the patterned die is cut, you can then cut the complete pattern out with a small ring around it. I then coloured this ring using a sponge dauber so it lifted it from the background.

The suite also has gorgeous patterned paper, some of which has gold foil print. You can see the Dapper Denim gold striped one on my card. I am a sucker for gold, so of course I also had to use one of the beautiful gold acetate stickers. These are so cool. I added a hint of Dapper Denim behind it to give it a focal point. There are also strips of stickers which are ideal as borders or details like I have used to highlight the sentiment.

Talking sentiment, the one I have used on this card is actually curved. But the beauty of photopolymer stamps is that they can be manipulated. So I straightened this sentiment on the clear block, and it bounced back to its curved shape when I took it off the block. So versatile and so much fun.

Now that you have seen my card, how about to hop along to Monique's blog to see what amazing things she has done with the Eastern Palace suite.



Here is a list of all the participants, just in case you get lost along the way.
