Default Stampin Up cardstock colors, your favorites?

I'm just getting into scrapbooking and would like to know what Stampin Up cardstock colors are your favorites for backgrounds.

Thanks, Chris

Gumball Green is my new favorite for everything, but I wouldn't use it on a Valentine page!

Any of the Neutrals, Always Artichoke, Night of Navy and others in the earth tone families (but those are my favorite colors to make cards with too!)
So much of what works best depends on what your pictures are like. When I did my kids' scrapbooks as they graduated from high school, I used more bright colors as their 90's era clothing featured those colors; my husband's Navy retirement book had Navy, Real Red, Other blues and Grey quite a bit. You also need to look at what colors are in your dp so you can complement what you have that way. ENJOY!!!

I found the easiest way to find my favorites. To start off with, I bought one pack each of all the color families. As I used the paper out of my paper families, I wrote it down, as I placed my next order, I ordered a whole pack of that color that I was out of in my paper family. It was a great way to slowly order what I needed. I did find that crumb cake is my most used. I think I buy a pack per order!!!!

I like all of the Neutrals Collection for scrapboooking and honestly, I would look at the Getting Started Collection for basics for scrapbooking. These are definitely the colors I use most for everyday scrapbooking (or card making).
