        My favourite colour combos change on an almost weekly basis, but have to say I love lime green and turquoise/teal as a combo. It always looks really fresh.

    Scenic is one of my favorites to make

  10. April 3, 2020 3:21 am

    It usually depends on to whom the card is going to. If it’s a mother’s day card, the it would have pastel color scheme (pinks, blues or greens). For a birthday card I use more bright colors. For christmas I stick to the traditional colors that are also bright or natural.

    Most of my stamps are floral and my favourite colours are pinks, reds and yellows. 🙂

  58. April 3, 2020 5:45 am

    I love a purple scheme. With a bit of gold. I think purple is difficult to use in a card because of its connotation with sympathy cards. But I love to use is on the flowers.

    I love mixing colours up but I must say blues are my favourite. Starting with a light blue and building up so you have an intense blue around the edge of your card. Take care and be safe.

  85. April 3, 2020 6:24 am

    If I do a scenic card, I like to use blue colors, green for the grass and if I do a sunset card yellow.

    I love blues and greens, more so the bright and vivid shades. Ironically, blue is not my favorite color at all but when you pair it with green(my favorite color) it takes on a new life. I do a lot of ink smooshing and when you get into mixing all those different colors together you quickly learn about what looks good together!

    The color I use the most is blue. From there the color scheme depends on what the main focus of the cards. If it’s outdoors it tends to be blue & brown (nature), if it’s little girls it tends to be blue & pink sometimes orange. If it’s floral I lean toward blue, pink, yellow.

    Thank you Penny Black for continuing to inspire and uplift, and for the chance to win a giveaway. I’ve been using Penny Black stamps for years and years , and often drove by your unassuming headquarters in Berkeley back when I worked on Ashby and San Pablo. Craftng has always been a part of my life and I love using most colors, depending on the design and my mood. However, one favorite is red, white and black.

    I love Penny Black stamps. I think your stamps and videos encouraged me to learn to watercolor. My favorite color combos are pinks, yellows and oranges together, but I’m also partial to shades of blue. I love color-it’s so hard to choose a favorite! Thank you for all the inspiration over these last several years.

    In the spring, I gravitate to pastels……soft yellow, soft pink, and lilac with perkier accents like fuschia, purple, and aqua. (All used in this year’s Easter cards). I’m always on the lookout for soft peach and pale mint green paper for my cards, but they are difficult to find.

    I absolutely adore black and white cards with a bright color for a visual accent, a bow, embellishments, etc. A black & white polka-dot on one side and a fuchsia on the other side makes me very happy. Take care…

    Fun to read everyone’s response and get different ideas of color combos, which I struggle with. I love gold with pink. My favorite colors are the blues and reds although I struggle to blend reds so I use pinks instead. Favorite color combo depends upon what I’m coloring. Thanks, PB

    Thank you for your question *lol
    My fav´s are taube ( think it´s a kind of gray / brown) with off-white
    and in many ways a deep blackberry tone also most with off-white.
    And for sure all colors going to be vintage (light to dark browns etc.)

    Hope you and everyone reading this stays healthy and creative

    I’ve been stamping for 30+ years, and my fav. color combos change time to time.. Currently I love purple/yellow combination! This combo gives me “calmness & cheerfulness” at the same time, which I need in this stressful time. .. Thank you for this generous giveaway in this unsettling time!

  397. April 5, 2020 5:44 pm

    I don’t have one favourite color scheme, though I do love white card bases. They’re like a blank slate to me and work so well for clean & simple designs.

    I love landscape card designs. My favorite color scheme is blues and purples with touches of pinks and yellows. Sunsets, sunrises are my favorite. Watercolored is best maybe because of the lack of control – just like nature.

  401. Amy K permalink

    My favorite color is purple, any shade! But it usually decides on the person I am making the card for or the card that I am making as to what color I use. Stay safe and stay healthy friends.

    My favorite card making color combination is shades of green and pinks. I use other combinations but find it hard not to squeeze in some shades of green. Most of stamp collection are floral stamps so greens are a must!
