The title of this thread makes me giggle!

What "dilemma" could possibly come from colored card stock??

I started stamping via SU, like many people, and was a demo for a few years. I could differentiate between the colors on sight (except the pesky ballet versus brocade blues) and collected new colors as they came in.

I just LOVE color! (Though I do wish old olive would retire, like yesterday.)

I use my colored card stock for card bases and line the inside with white or vanilla trimmed with coordinating dp. Once SU came out with a heavier whisper white, I thought I would use it more for bases, and just design the front, but that still doesn't happen much. (Although I did just make 15 thank you cards on white bases yesterday.)

What I will say is that my obsession to have All The Colors is long gone. I have lots of usable scraps for die cuts and small layers. I find pastels uninspiring, but I keep them to make cards for certain people. (One of my best friends loves pale pink, another loves soft yellow.)

The comments on this thread highlight how wonderfully diverse the crafty world is! Our preferences run the gamut, which is why I love this community so much!!
