More Color Combinations from Painted Seasons

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. Since Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper debuted as a Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration offering, I have shared several projects that showcase its colors and patterns in a variety of projects. I’m excited to share a bit more about these papers today.

There are two ways to earn the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper during Sale-a-Bration:

  • #150349 – the Painted Seasons Bundle includes the Painted Seasons stamp set and the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (free option with a $100 order).
  • #149574 – Just the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (free option with a $50 order).

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 gorgeous Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (includes 12 sheets – 3 each of 4 double-sided designs):

Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, 149574How gorgeous and versatile are these pages?! The pages can be showcased throughout the year. This pack of papers includes Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist, Mango Melody, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. That’s quite a mix – and each page has it’s very own inspiration. Such a beautiful, soft collection of colors!

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 Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Poppy Parade Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Grapefruit Grove, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Whisper White, Petal Pink, Call Me Clover

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 - Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Highland Heather, Call Me Clover, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake

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.

You only have one more week to earn these wonderful papers! If you have them, you should probably earn another pack. If you don’t have them, you want them. Don’t miss out! ♥

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. To follow me on Pinterest, please click here: follow me on Pinterest.
