More Color Combinations with Heartwarming Hugs 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 Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper debuted in Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog, I have shared several projects that showcase different pages in this pack of papers. The pages and colors in the pack of papers are perfect for your Christmas projects – and many can be used any time of the year! 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 Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper:

Inspiration

I’ve used the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper several times in the short time it’s been available to us – it would be impossible NOT to use it! Here are some of my projects with the pages from this pack of papers (you can click on each photo to read the original post about each project):

It’s easy to incorporate these pages into your projects because there are so many gorgeous pages in this pack of papers. 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 Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper .

Straight from the Papers

These colors are combined from the colors exclusively in this pack of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (this is a bit of a challenge since there are only four colors in the pack of papers):

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy MeadowStampin Up! Color Inspiration - Whisper White, Real Red, Mossy Meadow Stampin Up! Color Inspiration - Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow

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, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Real Red, Soft Suede, Mossy MeadowStampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Rococo Rose, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow

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.
