Designer Series Paper Colour Combos, Spring/Summer 2008

Hello All,

Well, it wasn't me, but someone has decided to figure out what colours are in each pack of Designer Series Paper (besides the obvious Prints papers, where each pack is all in one colour). Here goes...

Azure - Brilliant Blue, Very Vanilla

Bali Breeze - Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Taken With Teal

Berry Bliss - Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate

Cutie Pie - Bashful Blue, Basic Black, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Rose Red

East Coast Prep - More Mustard, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi

Ginger Blossom - Cameo Coral, Groovy Guava, River Rock, Ruby Red

Jersey Shore - Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi

Notebook - Kraft, Soft Sky, Very Vanilla

Olive Press - Old Olive, Very Vanilla

Spring Break - Blue Bayou, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky

Spring Fling - Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow, So Saffron

Spring Silhouettes - Certainly Celery, Soft Sky, Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi

Western Sky - Blue Bayou, River Rock, Ruby Red, Soft Sky

This list will definitely help if you are trying to decide which designer papers to purchase. Take a look at which colours you already have, or which colours are used the most across all of the packages.

Have fun!

5 Samples

Hello All,

I have made 3 card front samples, one 6" x 6" Brag Book page, and one 12" x 12" scrapbook page. I will be submitting these for a contest shortly. They won't be reurned to me, so I had to take some pictures.

Here is the scrapbook page I did of my brother's wedding in Mexico in 2006. This page uses the new Sticky Cuts letters with the new Cosmo Glitter.

SS: Together Forever, Define Your Life, Big Deal Alphabet
CS: Wild Wasabi Textured, Bali Breeze DP, Whisper White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White Craft, Pumpkin Pie
Other: Sticky Cuts, Cosmo Glitter, Rich Regals Eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, Sponges, Corner Rounder Punch, Coluzzle

Here is my brag book page. This is a picture of a couple of cute monkeys on top of me in Mexico. This page uses the new Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons in white. I used lots of different punches for this project.

SS: True Friend, Rough Edges Alphabet
CS: Purely Pomegranate Textured, Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Vey Vanilla
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip
Other: Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons, 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches (monkey), Word Window Punch, Large Oval Punch, Photo Corner Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Sponge Daubers

For this card, I used my So Swirly Jumbo Wheel with White Craft ink, and then embossed it in white for the background. The 3 flowers were stamped first in Taken With Teal ink on Whisper White Cardstock and cut out. Then, the flower's top layer was stamped on vellum with Craft ink 3 times and embossed in white. The vellum flowers were then layered on the cardstock layers and secured with new Rhinstone brads.

Ink: Whisper White Craft, Taken With Teal, Certainly Celery, White Gel Pen
Other: Ticket Corner Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Designer Label Punch, Large Oval Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch, Ice Circle Rhinestone Brads, White Emboss Powder
For this card, I stamped the flower from Doodle This on the new Berry Bliss DP and cut it out. I also stamped the flower in Whisper White Craft on vellum and embossed it with white again. I layered these 2 flowers on top of eachother. To secure them, I used the new Build-A-Brad in Antique Brass - I used my 1/2" Circle Punch with the Berry Bliss paper. There is also faux stitching on the brown piece.
SS: Doodle This, One of a Kind (sentiment)
CS: Basic Gray, Berry Bliss DP, Whisper White, White Vellum
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Chocolate Chip, White Gel Pen

For this card, I used my Coluzzle to make the different layers, and I maskd off an oval to sponge the Groovy Guava in the middle. Then I stamped the vines from Pretty Amazing in Chocolate Chip (with the oval mask still on). The flower from the Pretties Kit was dyed with my Aqua Painter and the ink from the lid of my Groovy Guava pad. I stamped the hummingbird in Groovy Guava on Whisper White, and watercoloured it with my Aqua Painter and my Groovy Guava and Tempting Turquoise ink pad lids. Then, I covered the bird with my 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
SS: Pretty Amazing, Tres Chic
CS: Groovy Guava, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise
Other:Double Rectangle Punch, Groovy Guava Double Stiched Ribbon, Sponges, Pretties Kit, 1/16" Circle Punch, Coluzzle, 2-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Aqua Painter
