Stampin' Up! Pop of Paradise and My Color Process

Happy Monday Peaches! I wanted to share with you a little bit about how I color combo process works and how I choose my colors for my projects. I'm sure many of you find inspiration in many different ways. Some people find it in art, in fashion, some in nature, while others find it in common everyday things, like a coffee mug or an umbrella. I love finding inspiration in colors used around me. I shared in a previous post how I found inspiration from some gorgeous hydrangea blooms. There's so much color and artistic inspiration surrounding us all the time.

If your natural surroundings don't provide a spark in your creative process, there are a few other places you can look. One of the things that I love about Stampin' Up! is that they are so great about taking the guess work out of the card making process. The colors coordinate flawlessly, they provide tons of samples and project ideas, and are always creating beautiful product suites that are designed to coordinate with stunning color combos. No matter the occasion or design you have in mind for your projects, they are a great resource for inspiration. That is how today's cards came about.



In today's projects, I was actually inspired by a suite that has since retired. It was the super fun "Pop of Paradise" suite from last year's catalog. This suite had a fun flamingo set (that I am coincidentally using in today's projects) with fun pops of pink and black. I've included pictures from the retired suite below:



 I wanted to incorporate this look into my cards but with a little twist. I love the look of blues with pinks so I chose Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, the new Powder Pink, and of course a pop of black. You can see how fun and playfully these colors work together. So if you're in a creative slump, remember that you have a source that has already done all the hard work for you. You can find many project ideas and color combos on Stampin' Up!'s website, their Pinterest  board, YouTube, as well as their catalog (feel free to contact me if you are interested in receiving a current catalog). Have fun creating, and thanks for stopping by!
