More Color Combinations from Festive Farmhouse

I love to collect and use Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers. What a great way to find inspiration for our projects! The colors and patterns pair perfectly with other products we love. Over the past several months, I have shared cards that showcase the patterns and colors in Stampin’ Up!’s Under the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, a pack of Christmas-themed papers in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Holiday Catalog. I’m excited to share a bit more about the papers today.

I often pull my colors right from the Designer Series Papers as a starter. That’s a huge benefit of our Designer Series Papers – they are designed with the amazing shades in our color families, so the pair perfectly with our cardstock, inks and accessories. Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper:

Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 147820How gorgeous are these plaids and beautiful images – they are perfect for Christmas-themed projects, but some can also be used at other times of the year. This pack of papers includes Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. Such a gorgeous collection!

Inspiration

Here are some cards I’ve made with the pages from Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (you can click on the photo to read the original post about each project):

Nothing Sweeter, Warm Hearted, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingSincerely Santa, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Christmas cardMerry Christmas to All, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Christmas cardThere are so many ways to use these versatile papers, don’t you think? Today I’m going to share a couple more suggestions for pulling these colors right from the patterns in the Designer Series Paper.

Straight from the Papers

These colors are combined from the colors exclusively in this pack of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspriation - Gray Granite, Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow Stampin' Up! Color Inspriation - Very Vanilla, Gray Granite, Mossy Meadow Stampin' Up! Color Inspriation - Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black

Combined with Other Colors

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

Stampin' Up! Color Inspriation - Crushed Curry, Gray Granite, Basic Black Stampin' Up! Color Inspriation - Gray Granite, Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Up! Color Inspriation - Very Vanilla, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow

By limiting the colors you’ll use in a project (or expanding the colors to those outside a pack of papers), you can really find some beautiful color combinations for our projects.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration Brian!

  2. I save these color combos and love the FestiveFarmhouse DSP and bundle. Have a wonderful day!

  3. You have such a knack for color and color combinations. Wowza!

  4. I love it when you do a parade of cards! Many, Many, Many years ago there was a song out called “I Love A Parade” that was almost, but not quite, as much fun to sing as it is to look at one of your card parades. You really do know how to give us all a smile and share color combos at the same time. Thanks Brian.

  5. You are truly the king of showcasing all of the beautiful DSPs!!! I did order some, need to get them out and (ack) cut into them! Sometimes I’d rather just frame them whole!
