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.

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!!!!
