More Color Combinations from Twinkle Twinkle

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. On Sunday I shared a car that showcases three of the patterns in Stampin’ Up!’s Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, a sweet pack of papers in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Twinkle Twinkle Suite. 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 Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper:

Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, 146284How adorable are these pages?! So many ways to showcase these patterns and colors. Like other packs of Designer Series Papers, the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Comes with 12 sheets – two each of six two-sided designs. This pack of papers includes Gray Granite, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White. Such a beautiful, soft collection of colors!


Until I started pulling inspiration with Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, I didn’t realize how often I have used this paper. It’s wonderful! Here are six cards I’ve made with the pages from Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper (you can click on the photo to read the original post about each project):

Don’t you agree? 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 Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Pool Party Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Pool Party, Gray Granite, Night of Navy Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Whisper White, Petal Pink, Gray Granite

Combined with Other Colors

By adding one other color to the shades in these colors, you can really transform the feel of the pages – or create all new combinations with inspiration from the 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 - Grapefruit Grove, Petal Pink, Pool Party Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Soft Sea Foam, MInt Macaron, Gray Granite Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Petal Pink, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy

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.

The Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper is featured in the Twinkle Twinkle Suite of products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog. To see all of the items that are part of the suite, click on the image below:
