One Sheet Wonder

On a A4 size paper I stamped Circle Circus stamps in 4 colours onto Whisper White. From a template I had I cut the paper into 10 different shapes to make these cards. You can use your own dsp or make your own as I have.
The colours I have used are :
Tempting Turquoise
Chocolate Chip
Pumpkin Pie
So Saffron
My card classes in November will be making 10 cards from the paper that they stamp either with Christmas stamps or stamps of their own choice.

Bargello Technique

The lovely and very talented Helen from my downline showed us this technique at Regionals in August. Its quite a fun technique to do with striped paper. The paper is cut into stripes on the diagonal and then pieced together in this alternating sequence. The flower is made from 6 scalloped circles then scrunched together.

Bargello Technique

Here's another card using the same design but different colours. I gave my card class a choice of these two colours, in case some needed Christmas card ideas. A fun technique as long as you cut the striped paper on the right angle to get the diagonals as I discovered when I taught my class that I hadn't cut them right. LOL.
