More Color Combinations with Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper

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 Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper debuted as an Early Release from Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog, I have shared several projects that showcase different pages in this pack of papers. Whether you want to make an elegant project or a fun project, there are pages in Ornate Garden that are perfect for you! 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 Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper:

They 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 Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper .

Straight from the Papers

These colors are combined from the colors exclusively in this pack of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper :

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Bumblebee, Old Olive, Early Espresso Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - MInt Macaron, Terracotta Tile, Gold Foil Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Whisper White, Terracotta Tile, Early Espresso

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:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Pool Party, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Early Espresso Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight, Early Espresso

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.
