Bargello Technique and BLOG CANDY!!!!!!!

I have been wanting to try this technique for a while....it's called the bargello technique.  It is a great technique to use when you have scraps of DSP (designer series paper) around.  The DSP I used for this card is springtime vintage.  The paper is no longer available for purchase but I just can't part with it.  I love the colors and designs.  Just by cutting strips of the DSP and lining them up next to one another in a pattern really makes for a great new design. 
You will want at least 3 strips of each pattern about 3/4" width and 6" long. 

The directions can be found at the Splitcoaststampers website.

To make the label, cut 2 of the label punch and cut one horizontally and the other vertically and border the stamped label.



Now for the blog candy.....this is my first time giving away FREE product!!!!  I will be giving away 2 hostess stamp sets from the catalog....something to celebrate and silhouette sentiments.  I am also giving away a spool of 1 1/4" striped grosgrain pumpkin pie ribbon.   Please leave a comment below and tell me what you think about this technique.  I will be randomly picking the winner on Saturday, June 4th. 
GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

very clever use of old paper scraps...My mom actually called last night begging me to make a card for her, I think I'll give it a whirl! Oh and that blog candy looks pretty sweet!

I've never tried this technique before. I certainly makes for a lovely background.

Beth, this is gorgeous! Wow! I really like the "shabby-chic" look you achieved using that dsp and all of the detail you added to the stamped image. You have completely inspired me to attempt this technique. Have a great day! :)

You've done a great job with this technique. I like how different this looks with the different choices of dsp. Love the blog candy too!
