More Color Combinations from Botanical Butterfly

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 Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, a pack of Spring-themed papers in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Sale-a-Bration brochure that can be used all year long. With one side of colorful patterns and one side of black-and-white designs, this pack of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (12 pages total) can be selected for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration (between now and March 31, 2019). 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 the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper:

Forever Lovely, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Brian King Warm Hearted, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Brian King Birthday Cheer, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingThere 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 Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, Balmy Blue Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Highland Heather Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Lemon Lime Twist, Balmy Blue, 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 Botanical Butterfly 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 Inspiration - Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Fresh Fig Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Lemon Lime Twist, Grapefruit Grove, Soft Suede

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.

While the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper is a Sale-a-Bration offering, the pack of papers coordinates beautifully with the Gingham Gala Suite of products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog. To see all of the items that are part of the suite, click on the image below:

I have been playing with fresh fig a bit and had not thought about pairing it with the grapefruit grove. I wonder how they would taste together in a recipe?
