Default Cranberry colored red cardstock

I have yet to find a company with a vivid shade of cranberry or deep maroon. They are all too dull or too brown for me. Can anyone direct me to a company with a red like garnet or deep ruby that is a very blue red but not a brown red? The color of cranberry juice/sauce or that very popular maroon leather used on recliners is what I am thinking.

I'm thinking Bazzill. Have you tried them? They have colors such as crimson and pomegranite that may be what you're looking for.

I also immediately thought of Bazzill. At Archivers you can buy by the sheet, rather than multi packs. Also, Archivers has a ton of open stock, solids.

I am a sucker for Creative Memories cranberry paper. It is a great shade of red.

I think I may have found a similar shade with Bazzill -- though now that it is in my drawer I don't know what the name of it is though!

Try going through the Bazzill line, if you can find either an LSS with a good selection or one that has a swatch ring you can look through.

Bazzill was my first thought too

Man, I remember going nuts for about 3 months searching craft stores for just that color! Then I found Creative Memories red to be the one for me. I bought so many sheets a while ago because I just kept running out of the stuff. I asked my CM demonstrator for her to order a pack of just red (bulk papers- only the demo's can do that). Comes 20 sheets in a pack, I think. Got 60 sheets. Good for Christmas, Disney, Love, oh... well just about everything having to do with red.

Enjoy!!! and Good luck!

What about SU's new Cranberry Crisp? I personally love it and already went through one package and another is on its way. I like Bazzil as well but I'm too anal about my ink matching my paper.

Impress Rubber Stamps sells Memory Box card stock. There are some fabulous reds in the duplex paper (coloured on one side, white on the other). They also sell matching envelopes for many of the colours. I have ordered from them and been pleased with the service and products. They might have the red you're looking for.

I love CM's cranberry, but I prefer SU papers. Wish I could have the best red color with SU quality! I haven't tried to find it anywhere else. I guess I need to look into Bazzil's color scheme.
