Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi everyone, and welcome to another fun StampTV Weekly Challenge. This week I thought we would use up some of our paper scraps with a technique called Bargello. HERE is a link so you can watch Beate Johns, over at Split Coast Stampers, do this fun technique. All you do is cut some strips of patterned paper, glue them on a backing, then cut that into strips across the "grain" and stagger them to form a Bargello pattern. I think you're gonna like it. I have a couple of samples to show you.

Here is the first sample:

For this card I did the traditional Bargello technique.

The Ingredients Are:

GKD Ocean Mist and Ivory Card Stock

Recollections Painted Fancy Patterned Paper

GKD Fanciful Tags Stamp Set

Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2

GKD Ocean Mist and Black Onyx Ink

Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder

Okay, for this next card, I cheated (shhhhhhh)....

I found some pretty striped paper, cut it in strips across the "grain", and staggered the strips on another piece of card stock. Easy peasy, no gluing all those pieces of patterned paper down first.

If this is the way you want to go with your Bargello, far be it from me to say you can't!!!

Here's the Ingredients for This Card:

GKD Wild Lilac, Black Onyx, White and Ocean Mist Card Stock

Colorbok Fresh Linen Patterned Paper

GKD Enjoy the Sunshine Stamp Set

GKD Black Onyx Ink

Memento Sweet Plum Ink

And now the fine print:

Be sure to have your project loaded to our gallery by Sunday, April 26th, 8PM CST. And don't forget to add the tag STV15MON16 so we will be able to see all of the gorgeous creations.

You can see the gallery HERE.

Have a great week and enjoy creating some Bargello!!!!

I have done this with fabric but should be fun with PP. Great challenge Judy and so special cards to get our creative juices flowing.

YOWZA!  I have just put on a pot of coffee, it may take me that much to figure this fantastic technique out, thanks for the video link.  Beautiful Challenge cards....FUN Challenge!!!

Love the cards, the colors for the second card are really up my alley! Never tried this technique or heard of it, so thank you for hosting the challenge this week!

I finally got my work done, so I could sit down and look at your challenge.  Now it is time to play.  Love this challenge as I have a lot of scraps that I just can't throw away.  Hope I can use them up.  Love both of your cards Judy, thanks for the great examples. 

Here are my mini-note-books that I made for this weeks challenge: & ~_^

I am totally impressed with your "cheat".  I'll have to see if I can find some striped paper and do that.  Your examples are both lovely.

Love this Judy!!!  Gorgeous cards!!
