NEW VIDEO!  What is Bargello (pronounced bahr-jel-lo)?  According to Wikipedia, Bargello is a type of  needlepoint embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in a mathematical pattern to create motifs. The name originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello Palace in Florence, which have a "flame stitch" pattern.

Sounds complicated, right?  Well, it takes only minutes to create a similar pattern with Stampin' Up! striped designer series paper.  I created a video tutorial to show you how I used paper to create a Bargello look for today's "spooky" card.

Keep scrolling for more tips and ideas!

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  Liz Hughes of my Stampin' Pretty Pals first alerted me to the fact that the big fuzzy bats on the Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series Paper could be cropped with the Bitty Bat Punch.  See photo above.
