More Color Combinations from Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper

Over the past couple of weeks, I have shared a few cards that beautifully showcase the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper, a pack of 12″ x 12″ printed papers with a gorgeous mix of soft, sweet colors with bold, modern patterns.  I often pull my colors right from the papers as a starter, so I want to talk a little about this super-popular Whole Lot of Lovely 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):

Whole Lot of Lovely, Stampin' Up!

This pack of gorgeous papers includes Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Powder Pink, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White. What a gorgeous mix of colors!

Here are a couple of projects I’ve shared that feature this paper – you can click on the photos to read the original post about each project:

Today I’m going to share a couple more suggestions for pulling these colors right from the patterns in the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.

Straight from the Papers

These colors are combined from the colors exclusively in this stack of papers:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Powder: Basic Black, Pool Party, Tangerine Tango Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Powder Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Tranquil Tide

Combined with Other Colors

By adding one other color to the shades in these patterns, you can really transform the feel of the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.  Here are some color combinations starters that feature two colors from this stack and one color from outside the stack:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry, Basic Black Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Tranquil Tide Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: So Saffron, Powder Pink, Pear Pizzazz

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!
