Default POLL: Color Combo Colors!

Hello everyone! I am trying to get a jumpstart on the color challenges to make sure things run smoothly during the summer. With all of the color redo stuff, I feel we need a poll to make sure we are all on the same page. As you all know, SU color names are used each time a color combo challenge is listed, eventhough, SU cardstock is not required. The SU names gives a color reference.

In the past on July 1st, the current in colors retire and new ones are brought in. At this time, retired colors are not used and we resort to the original 48 colors until first Tuesday in September. This 8 week or so period gives everyone who plans to order new in colors the opportunity to get them before new in colors are used in the challenges. However, this year with the color collection redo, we have a few things to clarify for the time between July 1st and Sept. If we retire everything...all in colors and all the current colors set to retire, we only have 20 or so colors left. Not sure good combos can be done with that limited amount for 8 weeks, hence the need for a poll.

So, here are the options I am looking at.......(I am typing the poll number choices here because the actual poll limits the number of letters used so I want to be clear what your choices are)!

If you know of another option that I have not listed, please let me know. TIA!




1. Retire all the in colors and other family colors and wait until Sept 1 to use the new color collection....just use the 20 or so colors.

2. Continue using all in colors that are planning on staying along with the 20 or so other colors

3. Use all in colors that are staying along with past in colors that are returning along with the 20 or so other colors.

4. Continue using all of the 48 colors and the in colors until Sept. at that time they will be permanently retired from color combo challenges...just editing to clarify that the NEW colors will not be included with this option. This is just to give everyone time to get the NEW colors and still have colors to work with.

5. Start using new color names July 1 and everyone just find the color that best works with the name until they actually own it since the colors are for reference points and not require anyway.

I voted for Use all of the 48 colors and in colors until Sept. then retire them from CC but only because we won't get our new colours until October with our new catalogue over here in the UK, but I do have all the in colors and returning ones too - couldn't just let you guys have them all to yourself now could I?! :P

Hey Betty

I think with so many people using other lines of cardstock now, you really can go whatever direction and be ok. Most people will just sub a close color if they don't have it anyway. The challenges are a "jumping off" point.... don't you think?

Just my 2 cents

I love all your combos!

IMO, #4 offers the best options for the largest number of readers.

Some of us will have even fewer SU colors once the catalog change takes effect, which equates to more players substituting similar colors eventually.

Keep up the fabulous challenges, Betty!

I voted to start using the new color names on July 1. I will really miss some of the retiring colors (Sage Shadow, Close To Cocoa...sigh). But who can wait till Sept? Not me. As sad as I am to see some of the old colors go, I am just as excited to see and use the new.

It would be nice to continue CCs with the the colors that are going bye-bye till the new catty comes out...just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the poll...polls are fun! But whatever you decide to do, I'll play along.

My vote is totally different.
Stop using Stampin Up Color names and start using a more general color names, since people that play in these challenges don't necessary play with or only with SU colors with such wonderful quality paper out there like Gina K and PTI. I know I would participate if all the colors won't just in SU names since I haven't bothered buying SU CS because I love Gina K and PTI paper very much.

Whatever you decide, I will continue to play along. I voted for option number four. I would never have dreamed of putting some of those colors together. And that is the whole point right? To strech out of your comfort zone and try new things.
Keep up the good work!!

Many of us do use SU! though and with more generic color names I personally would have a hard time.

I say do Option 4

Really, the 3 CURRENT In Colors that will be staying (Suede, Razzleberry, Melon) should have been included in the "staying list"!

I voted to change over this year just like the last years. Many people still have old In Colors, particularly since we were advised a year ago to keep them. So the 7 returning In Colors many people will still have in their supplies...I do! That really only gives us 5 new colors plus the 5 new In Colors. I don't think that making any major changes in the way the color changes are handled from previous years is really necessary.

I still have some of the old "in" colors that I think are coming back, Yea!, and I would like to use them again/now. For the most part I find colors that are close in whatever brand I have.

I'm a bit unclear on the choices but I chose the last one. Colors can be ordered beginning July 1st so people can have them fairly soon after the old colors will have been erased from our memories on June 30. I say "bring 'em on!"

Sheena, there was a poll/vote taken a year or so ago which asked participants if they wanted to still use Stampin Up colors names. It was voted to continue using the color names as only reference points because there are so many shades of the colors it would be difficult to say what color is melon mambo. I personally substitute PTI raspberry fizz for melon mambo because it is so close to an exact match it is amazing. I have not yet...stressing the YET, got any of the Gina K cardstocks. On my wishlist, though. If you know which of these colors work with the SU shades by all means use them. The use of the SU names really is for narrowing down our color specifics. Of course, with all of the new colors coming out I am going to place a big SU order just for all the new colors! What? I cannot help myself really!!!!

Hee Hee! I know I am a bit impatient to start using the new colors myself! I just want a sample of all of them so I can start playing with colors!

To answer your last comment about continuing to use the colors until new catty comes out. That is what I was planning to do. It is the time between new catty and the time line for people getting the new hues that I was concerned with. I do have the new catty release date correct, right? July 1st? I was just assuming July 1st 'cause this was the normal date I thought for release catty in past years. Please tell me it is NOT later?!?!?!? Geez! I want the new colors NOW! I am not whining..really!

I'm good with any. I do substitute a lot with other companies, but I think most people understand color in terms of the SU names. Maybe in aother year or so it will be time to ask again?

Anyhow I love the time and effort but into the color challanges and wanted to say I'll be happy with whatever. Even if I don't always do the challanges I'm ALWAYS inspired by the color challanges and the galleries.

I notice that many blogs incorporate retired in-colors any way...plus PTI and Bazzill are popular...

I think any SU colors (because their names seem most familiar) would work, current or not. Many people use it as a guide, and know they vary it a bit if they don't have the exact colors

oh my...that was wordy! I should go to bed

I didn't see this option here - I would vote use everything, no need to retire the retiring colors - so many of us have them already and appreciate the chances to use them, strictly business demos can use them as an opportunity to use up their remaining supply and if new folks coming on board don't have a specific clor they can use the next closest thing.

I still don't really relate to the concept of retiring colors, I love ALL of them...

Betty, I LOVE your color challenges! I usually use substitute colors since I have very few SU colors. I do use the paper color pages in my SU catalog as a guide....knowing that printed color reproduction might be "off". I voted for #4 since I thought I might as well becomed accustomed to the new names and their colors for me to try and match to as best I can. Thanks for the poll! Looking forward to tomorrow's colors! : )

I really do not have an opinion since I usually have to substitute anyway. In light of that, is there any way that some kind of color swatch could be used - as is seen in some of the blog challenges? I often look at my chalk or Stampin' Spots, or at the cards in the gallery - but that does not work with newer colors, and will definitely not work with all the changes. I have no idea how all this is done, but maybe something like a separate gallery post, as in the sketch challenge? Thanks for all you do for this challenge, and for giving participants this input.

I don't know how to vote, I don't really go for the options. To me, I don't care what colors they retire, if I like the color, I'm going to use it, lol. Just because SU decides a thing is so, doesn't make it so. I always thought the colors were more of a suggestion anyway. IMHO I don't think we should be tied to them, just use their list so people can have an idea of the color.

I voted for #5, new colors only starting immediately. I've already gotten rid of all retired product. I say "bring on the new!" I can't wait to see the new combos! I think the sooner we see them being used, the more we will want them. Thanks for your challenges. I love seeing what everyone comes up with! Blessings, Lela

I have voted for number four. Like a few I believe if you don't have the colour you will be able to substitute.
Thanks for giving me a heads up on the new in colours. I think we are going to get the same ones this time round.
Cheers

Betty I voted for #4, but I really don't care. Your color choices are just a suggestion anyway and you do a wonderful job. You sure get me out of my comfort zone at times. I personally use SU, but I will use whatever is available.
Keep up the good work Betty!

Hmmm... I say use the old and the new colors. People will be able to find similar colors to substitute. And I don't know a crafty person who doesn't have stock!! (Or will be stocking up on favorites, like me!) I, too, am sad to see some of the gorgeous colors be discontinued. I don't know that I can live without Lovely Lilac, Summer Sun, Ballet Blue... Oh, who am I kidding?! How's that old song go.... "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold!"

I voted for #5, but I agree so much with Holly....I use way more Bazzil and Prism than I do SU.

I voted for the third option, as it happens many of the returning In Colors are ones I liked and stocked up on!

I like the idea of using the new color names (#5), but maybe throwing in a wild card of an old color every once in awhile.

I vote for option #5. These colors are guides anyway!

I vote for #5 as many people substitute colors anyway.

I am happy with however you decide to run it. I love using the challenges as inspiration for my cards.

I would say though, I like the idea someone suggested about adding a colour swatch. That way for people like myself who don't own any SU! colours it is easier to see what we can replace them with.

Did you decide what to do? I didn't see this poll until today, and it's been closed for a while. I actually hope you go with 4 instead of 5. Many people will not have the new colours for quite a while. 4 gives ample opportunity for new and old.

I vote for option 5 as well. I think it is just better to come up with more generic names.

Default Color Poll

Use new colors starting July 1 and everyone just finds the best match.
