Default Need some great color combinations please!

I am looking to see if anyone has any favorite color combinations. I usually use the same ones and I am looking to find some new ones.
Thanks!
Rebecca

Just look through the gallery. Most cards list the colors used. So, if you see one that strikes you, the information should be there for you.

I made a card recently that is garden green & marvelous magenta that I love. I also love bordering blue, eggplant envy, & more mustard. Then there's cameo coral w/ summer sun

Oh, I could go on and on. I do find that I get stuck using the same colors too. I always recommend going into the gallery and searching by color, you can see all kinds of combinations using some of your favorite colors.

My current fave is Tempting Turquoise (or Green Galore) together with Positively Pink and Summer Sun, but I also like Bliss Blue/Barely Banana, Barely Banana/Sage Shadow, and Mauve Mist/Lavender Lace. Perfect Plum and Old Olive make a good combo with the Kraft cardstock.

Try out this website - it is an awesome online color wheel!

http://www.pixy.cz/apps/barvy/index-en.html

I've used it a couple of times and one time I never would have picked those colors, but it turned out really pretty.

I love pink passion with everything!!! LOL My customers know every workshop or demo will have at least one project with pink passion. I especially like pink passion with lovely lilac and taken with teal. Another good one is pink passion with tempting turquoise and yo yo yellow. I could go on and on

If you have access to them, the inspiration sheets are great for color combinations. Not only do you get the main combo, you get the additional colors at the bottom. Sometimes I use the inspiration sheets more for color combo ideas than for the card ideas!

Default color combo's

My favorite lately is Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy and Summer Sun. I ALWAYS use my favorite Ultra Smooth White. I just love that cs. When I stamp on it the colors look so great. I tell my customers that I have turned into a PAPER SNOB, I only use SU CS since I fell in love.

I love to use Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, and Gable Green together. Throw in a little Positively Pink and Woo Hoo!

I love the Night of Navy, More Mustard, and Mellow Moss combo too.

Funny you say this Wendy. I often tell my customers that if you were to tell me I could only order one thing from SU! ever again - CS, stamps, or stamp pads - I would take the CS in a heartbeat!! I LOVE our paper!

As for color combos - hands down cameo coral and night of navy.
I also really like rose romance, cameo coral, summer sun and mellow moss (great flower cards!)

I was tired of the same combinations and tried Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and Gable Green. It looked really neat.

Default color combos

I was like you--used the colors I was comfortable with. Then I started thinking: "Uhm...There are others in this world that may not want everything in the colors you love." So, I became a SU demo and first thing I got was the Color Coach (our color wheel). That was the best purchase I have ever made. Opened up my eyes to so many other color combos. Now I love almost all the colors that SU has and for stamp camp I use almost all the colors.
I also love our US White, but sometimes I'll go for the Vanilla for a softer look and other times I go for the kraft for the "guy cards."
Hope this helps.
Susie
