Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello!

I'm new to stamping and card making.  Being new, I'm pretty much starting out my collection and complimenting ink colors are a struggle for me right now.  I love the colors of the Gina K's cardstocks and envelopes that I have purchased thus far so I'm now ready to tackle inks.

I saw a card someone made using Gina K inks but I don't know what colors they were.  Can anyone please tell me what colors compliment Peach Bellini, like for the darker center of flowers??  Also any help you can give with pinks, blues and purples would really help me as I'd like to make several of these cards to send out in different colors.

Thank you so much!!
Cathy

Hi! I ‘m not sure what you mean, do you mean what is another color that would go with Peach Bellini?
I just wasn’t sure if you knew that Gina’s ink colors and cardstock colors match exactly and have the same name. Let me know if I misunderstood!

Cathy, if you could link a card that you saw and liked, we might do a better job at knowing what colors to work well with Peach Bellini.  I really haven't used Peach Bellini at all, as I recently purchased the  ink cube.  I know many people have and will have a better idea if you can link something that interests you.

I love tomato soup with peach Bellini. I don't have as much luck with the purples. But do love the turquoise sea, ocean mist and blue lagoon for blue/green group. Powder blue, blue denim and in the navy are very good group. Pinks that work for me are Innocent Pink, bubblegum and passionate pink.

I started with just a few colors of card stock with ink pads and then invested in the re-inkers (I use them with a water color brush to paint with). Now have most all the colors. Would not craft with out them, either. Here is a sheet that I keep on my work space that comes in handy to help pick colors.

Here is a video that may help you with color matching.  http://stamptv.ning.com/video/august-2016-stamp-tv-release-party-pr...

Gina has free sheets that you can download to assist you with color selection for the flowers and leaves.

Card was by Jennifer McGuire. I didn't know if I was allowed to say that or not since she only used Gina K inks and not stamps.

These are fantastic helps ladies! I really appreciate it!

Yes I was looking for colors that go with Peach Bellini.  I'm sorry I didn't put it very well.  I'm terrible at putting colors together.  In the card I saw, I believe that the petals of the flower were stamped with Peach Bellini but I can't tell what the center of the flower was stamped with.  I wasn't sure if it might be Tomato Soup or Faded Brick.  Having never seen the colors in person, I didn't know.

Thanks so much!

Thanks Bonnie! There were a few Copic matches I was missing. This helps bunches.

I, too, am not the best are picking colors. Getting a good flower catalog, or cutting out pictures in magazines really helps. By studying the colors in nature I can use my Color Chart and get some very pretty combinations. Plus it is paper, so if at first you are not seeing what you saw in your minds eye, file that attempt in the round bin (aka trash) and try again.

I agree, it is really hard to tell what colors are from online sources when you haven’t seen them in person. I think Peach Bellini would look great with lots of flower centers. Dusky Rose, Sweet Mango, Tomato Soup or any of the reds. When you layer colors, you sometimes get unexpected, but pretty results.

I watched the video and looked on Jennifer’s blog and she doesn’t seem to indicate the color anywhere. Too bad, but I still think lots of colors will look very nice!
