UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! World Showcase Blog Hop!!!



Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! World Showcase Blog Hop.
If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Erica's Summer Fun Party Favor!!!  What a great idea to create a gift box for suntan lotion....I love it!!!!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the super projects we have for you.


For my project a wanted to showcase a technique I have seen on other blogs and I had to try it.  It's call the bargello technique. 
If you are like me, I collect lots and lots scraps for DSP (designer series paper).  This technique is a great way to get rid of those many strips and create a great design to have your friends and customers wanting to learn how to do this technique.  When I first saw these cards, I thought this was a really complicated technique but in reality it is soooooooo simple!!!!!  I could make these cards all day long.
I am featuring the new designer series paper called "Flirtatious Specialty".  I just love the colors and the designs in this series......melon mambo, pretty in pink, daffodil delight, whisper white and one of the new in colors.....WISTERIA WONDER!!!!! 
The melon mambo medallion piece is from the specialty paper.  It is a lasered piece that you can cut apart to use as doilies or keep it together as a layer piece.  Starting July 1st you can start purchasing the new products when the catalog goes LIVE!  Check back for more details or go onto my stampin' up website to place your order.
