Yesterday I shared a sweet, fun card with the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper, a pack of 12″ x 12″ printed papers with a wonderful mix of fun and beautiful patterns. You can see that post here. While the piece of Designer Series Paper I showcased yesterday was black-and-white, I added two soft colors to the paper with Stampin’ Write Markers to easily transform the paper. I often pull my colors right from the papers as a starter, so I want to talk a little about Pick a Pattern Designer Series paper. After all, that’s a huge benefit of our printed papers – they are designed with the gorgeous shades in our color families.
Here’s a look at this pack of papers, which includes twelve 12″ x 12″ sheets (2 each of 6 double-sided designs):
The pack of papers includes Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand and Whisper White. What a great collection of colors! Here are some of the cards I’ve shared with the diverse patterns and colors in this pack of papers (you can click on any of the pictures to see my original post about each card):
Today I’m going to share a couple more suggestions for pulling these colors right from the patterns in the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.
Straight from the Papers
These colors are combined from the colors exclusively in this stack of papers:
Combined with Other Colors
By adding one other color to the shades in these patterns, you can really transform the feel of the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper. Here are some color combinations starters that feature two colors from this stack and one color from outside the stack:
By limiting the colors you’ll use in a project (or expanding the colors to those outside a pack of papers), we can really find some beautiful color combinations for our projects. I hope you find this helpful, I and I hope some of these combinations inspire you. Please save any (or all of these) to Pinterest for future reference.
Thanks for stopping by today!
