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 the heart-filled, Valentine’s Day-themed From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper debuted with Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, I have shared several projects that showcase different pages in this pack of papers. I’m excited to share a bit more about this pack of 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 From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper:
While some of the red and pink pages could be used for projects that aren’t themed around love and Valentine’s Day (the bright red, dotted page doesn’t have hearts), the pages are decidedly designed for the February 14 holiday. This pack of papers includes Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Whisper White.

I’ve used the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Papers several times in the short time it’s been available to us – how could I avoid it?! Here are some of my projects with the pages from From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (you can click on each photo to read the original post about each project):
That’s a lot of pink and red – but it can be really fun to work with – especially when you add other colors to the colors found in the paper. 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
There are only three colors in the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, so there’s only one trio of colors that are strictly from the pages in this pack of papers:
Combined with Other Colors
By adding one other color to the shades in these papers, 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:
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.
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.
