More Color Combinations with Well Dressed 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 Well Suited Designer Series Paper first became available in Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2021 Mini Catalog, I used every page in the pack. I love this paper – the pages are filled with the classic patterns and colors you find in men’s dapper suits and attire, but they are versatile to be used for so much more. 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 Well Suited Designer Series Paper:

These pages are incredible – I love each and very page in this pack. Don’t you love it?! The pack includes Basic Black, Basic Gray, Cajun Craze, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Poppy Parade, Smoky Slate and White.

I have loved working with this paper. I love the colors and patterns – a great mix for great papers. Here are some of my projects with the pages from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper (you can click on each photo to read the original post about each project):

Handomely Suited Bundle, Stampin Up!, Brian King, masculine birthday card You Are Amazing, Well Suited Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian King, guy birthday card Handsomely Suited, Well Suited, Stampin Up!, Brian King, masculine card Wonderful As You, Well Suited Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian King

It’s easy to incorporate these pages into your projects because the gorgeous prints are so versatile. 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 Well Suited Designer Series Paper.

Straight from the Papers

These colors are combined from the colors exclusively in this pack of the Well Suited Designer Series Paper – such a sophisticated variety of colors in this pack of papers:

Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Basic Black Stampin Up! Color Inspiration - Basic White, Cajun Craze, Night of Navy Stampin Up! Color Inspiration - Basic Gray, Pacific Point, Night of Navy

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 - Just Jade, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray Stampin Up! Color Inspiration - Pool Party, Night of Navy, Poppy ParadeStampin' Up! Color Inspiration: So Saffron, Pacific Point, 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.

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.
