Using the Newly Created In Symmetry Designer Paper
Same Technique for Another "Look" with the Elegant Designer Paper

Did You See the "Other" Elegant Stampin'Up! Designer Paper?

Did You See the "Other" Elegant Stampin'Up! Designer Paper? Probably not...we're going to design it today! Last week we designed a multicolored paper but this week we're going to create a lovely designer paper that is only one color...check out the card...

Fresia card

We're using a color on color design this week--beginning with the new In Color Fresh Fresia cardstock and stamping with the same ink...

Fresia - starting

Cut a piece of Fresh Fresia cardstock 3 7/8 X 5 1/8 the begin in the upper left corner and working down to the right bottom--stamp in Fresia and turn the stamp a quarter turn, ink and stamp again. Continue in the same manner covering the entire piece of cardstock. 

Fresia - full background fresia ink

Using the same in gives a vivid background. If you prefer a softer image--try using Versamark embossing ink....

Fresia - backgroun versamark

Either is beautiful--it's a matter of your preference.

P.S. Check back Thursday to see what else we can do!
