So my friends are all getting their houses decorated for fall, and I'm over here having a purple party! I don't care what time of year it is, purple is always appropriate. Be sure you don't miss yesterday's Purple Lover's Party post!
Just for fun, I've put together some fall/winter season color combos with purple in them. Enjoy!
Suggested Stampin' Up Color Combos using purples
Purple is one of those chameleon colors that can serve as both a "warm" and a "cool" hue, depending on what is paired with it. Darker purples add a zing of intensity, and light purples have a calming effect. Color is so neat, don't you think?
On to our inspiration projects for the day! I really like this layout because it uses up strips from my scrap bin. The name of the paper pack is Woven Threads. These are four one-inch-wide leftovers from Scrapbooking Summer School, and it's been really fun coming up with uses for 120 of them!
Start with the one on either side, then split the different when adding the two middle strips. Makes for a very interesting, textural background. If you want more ideas for using up little strips and scraps, I have a whole blog category just for that!
Isn't that rose so pretty? When I was ready to move on from Modern Heart and chose another set to make purple cards with, To A Wild Rose was a no-brainer. It's sooo pretty with the color combo of Gorgeous Grape (outline), Highland Heather (accents) and Purple Posy (base color). I don't use a whole ton of lace on my cards, but I did like the addition of a nice crisp white half-doily that balances the layout.
I felt so clever with my "patterned paper" on these cards... the copper foil pattern is actually a treat bag that I cut apart and used on three different cards. It doesn't show well in the photos, but the copper is subtle and warms up the white. Little trick for ya!
I hope you're really enjoying all this purple! Next post I've got some delightful uses of the Purple Posy Stampin' Blends markers that are going to make you very happy to know about!
Until then, if you want to get in on the Purple Posy care package, shop here with the party code Y4KJ7QN3 and I'll put your address on one of these adorable purple mailers. Smile when you see it, because there's fun inside!
