Default What's your favorite color combo?

I tend to use the same colors all the time and need some inspiration for some new color combo ideas.
Can anyone help color my world a bit?

Anything that involves Certainly Celery!! . . .
Seriously though, I have the same problem - I'm in a Celery rut!
You could try looking at some of the color combo challenges. That's what I do when I need to break out of my box.

OH! And there's also this link which is like an online color wheel!

My "old standby" is black+white+any bold bright.

I actually just made some cookie monster birthday cards for ds using black, white, and close to cocoa and it looks great! Pretty much everything goes with B&W!

I haven't made a card with this combo yet but I will soon: so saffron with black. I saw a VWbug driving around in those colors and it was so striking, I thought I better remember that combo!

Default My DH is getting trained!

I went to the scraptitude website suggested by wiggydl for colors and showed my DH. He looked at it and said "couldn't you put in the colors of the shirt you bought yesterday and have it search what other colors would go with it and take the list with you to buy pants and skirts?"

YEAH - he's learning!!

I tend to use chocolate chip in many of my products lately. I just love the look.

It's a toss up between pink and brown variations and certainly celery and lavender lace.

I love combining shades of brown/cream/beige especially with cuttlebug patterns.

I use chocolate chip ink with them or Stazon brown.

Some of my favs are:

celery/bashful
celery/cool carib
celery/choc chip
pink passion/grn galore
cool carib/choc chip
turq/black
gable grn/cool carib
pixie pink/gable grn

I like bright and cheery. I draw a lot of inspiration from clothes and summer purses. I'll see a blouse or skirt and think, wow, that looks like good designer scrapbook paper...then I take note of the colors and try to match them. I've come up with some awesome cards that way. My friends just laugh at me when we shop...always looking for inspiration, never know where you might find it!

I was stuck also last month for my stamp camp. I feel like I do the same color combos over and over - so I picked up the old SU catalog & current one and strictly looked at color combos. I found these that went over really well with my group:

Ruby red, barely banana, bordering blue (they loved this one!)
Rose red, bashful blue, marigold morning
Certainly celery, brilliant blue, real red
Cameo Coral, apricot appeal, certainly celery
Sahara sand, cranberry crisp, buckaroo blue

I love doing a olive green or any green with a pale pink..I think that they look really good, or use a brown and pink together!

I like Regal Rose, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, and Basic Black. It matches some scrapbook paper I bought and now I'm hooked.

Pink and brown. It reminds me of the dots on the wall at the old Baskin Robbins store we used to go to when I was a little girl.

Just curious when a 5-4 colours are listed instead of 3, does that mean to use all of those colour combos or just some of them? Thanks
