Using the Newly Created In Symmetry Designer Paper

Today we're looking anew at Using the Newly Created In Symmetry Designer PaperTuesday we created a whole sheet of a "new" In Symmetry Designer Paper in the colors that I wanted in my card...if you missed it...check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/06/have-you-seen-the-other-in-symmetry-designer-series-paper.html

Since we had virtually 3/4 of the sheet left we have plenty to create a couple of more cards with this new paper we designed. Here's the first one for today...

3 In symmetry

This one uses s strips cut from the designer sheet--leaving a small border of cardstock underneath adds a bit of pizzazz to the paper. A layer of black cardstock was added beneath the Flirty Flamingo and this provided a sharp contract to set off the paper. After punching the dragonflies from the copper paper, I put them through the Ornate Floral folder to add some interest and dimension to them. Adding a ribbon tied in a knot and our card is completed.

3 In symmetry cu

Our second card for today is quite simple and elegant...

2 In symmetry

This cards simply uses a horizontal layer of our designer paper with a Granny Apply Green backing. Again, adding a measure of Petal pink ribbon and tying a bow completes the picture. Of course, adding the Champagne rhinestones between the images on the designer paper add that last touch of sparkle that makes it elegant!

Pretty fun, right?  I'll give you the card directions below followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies. 

P.S. Check back Thursday to see what we do with the rest of the designer paper!

Have You Seen the 'Other' In Symmetry Designer Series Paper?

Have You Seen the 'Other' In Symmetry Desiger Series Paper? Probably not. I was thinking of creating a card with the new In Symmetry stamp set and I wanted to use designer paper in the design..but the colors I wanted to use in the card were not working with the designer paper in the catalog (Sweet Symmetry). Sooo I decided to create my own...the primary colors I wanted in my designer paper were Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue...so here's what happened...

I began with an 81/2 X 11 sheet of Shimmery White (if we're going to dream, let's dream with shimmer, right?)...and using the stamps in the In Symmetry set and the colors I wanted in my designer paper I began filling the sheet with images...

In symmetry starting

I began in the center alternating the images (each had it's own color) and kept stamping until I filled that sheet...

In symmetry sheetNow I can cut up this sheet and use it in my card just like Stampin'Up! Designer Series paper...so here's my card...
