Beautiful Bargello

Hidey Ho Happy Stampers!

It was my Tuesday Technique class last night, and we tackled Bargello technique, which although looks like it might be tricky, is actually super duper easy peasy! Here’s a photo of last night’s creation.

  • Stamp Set: You’re a Gem (in the current Mini Catalogue, which finishes this SUNDAY 31 July!)
  • Ink: Regal Rose, Early Espresso
  • Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi
  • DSP: Subtles DSP Stack
  • Big Shot: Lots of Tags Sizzlits, Floral Fusion Sizzlits
  • Accessories: Subtles Brads, Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, XL Two Step Bird Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I love the Subltes DSP stack – beautiful patterned paper in every subtles collection colour. I’ve picked ‘spring’ colours to hurry some warmer weather along. Spring isn’t too far away – the wattle and magnolia trees are already blossoming in our street, and the Bella Boo and I are off for a walk today to see if we can find any tulips or daffodils beginning to bloom. If you like the look of Bargello, why not do an Internet search – there’s heaps of information around on how to do this beautiful technique, or I’ll be running another class next term.

Another little project I’ve been working on that used the Subtles DSP Stack – the Claire Bear’s Build-a-Bear birthday invitations. Here are Rose Red, Marina Mist and Pretty in Pink bears – all of them were different colours to ‘match’ the favourite colour of the little girls that Claire is inviting.

Unfortunately, the bear die that I’ve used isn’t SU!, but I’m hoping (fingers crossed) that the new Idea Book & Catalogue released on 1st September will include the exclusive SU! Build-a-Bear dies that are available in the US! You might also notice at the top of the invite, which you pull out to read the party information, is the Ice Cream Parlour ribbon, available for free when you spend $100 on SU! products until 31st July.

Anyway, we’re off to find some daffodills! Thanks for taking a peek today.
