Default Favorite/least favorite SU colors

Just for fun which is your favorite and least favorite current SU color?

Mine?

Pool Party is my top contender right now-a few others are at the top too

Least favorite is So Saffron, but I have a few others at the bottom

I just got into using sahara sand and I quite like it. Plus smokey slate.

Cherry Cobbler is my favorite and my dislike is anything that's Pink in color.

I could never bring myself to use Dusty Durango (an old in colour.) But I love, love, love Wisteria Wonder!

Favorites are Cherry Cobbler, the pinks and blue greens, least favorite is/was Summer Starfruit. I don't ever really hate any particular color, I love them all in some form or another!

I, too, am a Cherry Cobler fan! The pistaschio color was disgusting!
Curry was too, unless it was with some form of grey.

I don't know if I can pick a favorite. Currently I'm in love with Sahara Sand and Smokey Slate for neutrals. Picking an actual favorite color is impossible.

Least favorite is easy for me: Brocade Blue. It was similar enough to Bliss Blue that I wondered why I bought them both. I didn't really like either. So I decided to get rid of it by using it to make a sample book of all of my embossing folders, dies, and punches. This means I have to look at the color all of the time, but I just finally cut up my last full sheet of it.

Real Red is a classic. The perfect true red.

I love a mix of old and new colors: Cherry Cobbler, Always Amethyst, Baja Blue, Basic Gray, Soft Sky, and Calypso Coral.

Not a fan of SU's darker purples: Razzleberry or Eggplant.

I have tons of favorites - and only 2 that I can think of that I'm not enthralled with - Always Artichoke and Summer Starfruit

Favorites: bashful blue (still mourning its retirement, but I have plenty in stock), pistachio pudding, rose red, smoky slate.

Dislikes: summer starfruit and island indigo - which is sad b/c the SAB DSP and Watercolor DSP use these 2 colors a lot. Also not a fan of riding hood red, glad it's gone! Now we just have to get rid of island indigo....

Well then you will not like Blackberry Bliss then, it's darker than these 2 colors...

I'm not crazy about Elegant Eggplant or Summer Starfruit. Most of the others I really like and it would be difficult to pick a favorite. I use Real Read, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and all of the blues a lot.
I am excited to see the new orange, because while I don't dislike Tangerine Tango, sometimes it seems too bright to me.

I really can not profess to having a favorite color because at any given time my
"favorite" colors change depending upon my mood or even the time of year. However, I never cared for River Rock when it was around.

Summer star fruit is my least fav. Right up there is crushed curry and Durango. Have loved melon mambo, razzelberry, cherry cobbler, and concord crush.

Hard to pick just one of each, but my current faves are Bermuda Bay (which is probably my all time favorite) Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette, Raspberry Ripple, and Pool Party. I also really like the retired colors of Concord Crush and Lucky Limeade.

I absolutely hate Crushed Curry and Summer Starfruit. I wasn't a huge More Mustard fan either, but I did like it for fall cards and projects. I'm hoping the new in color Hello Honey will be more likable to me.

I love color. Period. I can usually find a use for most colors. That said, there were several of the Brights when I joined SU! that I really disliked. Glorious Green is probably #1 on that list. Of current colors, Sahara Sand is definitely my least used, but I don't dislike it...I just reach for Crumb Cake instead.

Favorite colors is super hard for me. Probably Bermuda Bay! Although it seems to change with the season for me. I haven't used Cherry Cobbler in months but it is my go to color in August through December! And I'm a hot pink girl who thought all I ever needed was Melon Mambo but Strawberry Slush is scrumptious too!

I didn't like Crushed Curry at all when it first appeared as an InColor. But now I make holiday cards using seasonal colors so I got the ink pad, marker and paper when it came back. I love fall colors in the fall because I can look out the windows and see them in real life!

Faves - Real Red and Cherry Cobbler
Least Faves: Pistachio Pudding and Garden Green

That being said, I can find a use for pretty much any color - and truly do like most of them - but some seldom see the light of day, and some I reach for often...

And - lest you think I don't like green - I'm just picky about it. Pistachio Pudding is a pale, blah color (in my opinion), and Garden Green just sort of sits there, boring as anything. I like greens that bring to mind something found in nature, and neither of these does it for me.

On the other hand, I never met a red I didn't like (and that includes many pinks - especially Melon Mambo), so there you go...

I'm convinced that Cajun Craze is what they did when they missed the mark on Dusty Durango

I loved Baja breeze! Loved rich razzleberry when it first came out. Love all the greens....I don't think there's any color I hate. I used to hate red before I became a CardMaker and now I love it!

I don't think there are any current colors that I don't love! When they are paired with the right colors and stamps, I think they all look good! The ones I never did like were the very first In Colors... True Thyme, Cranberry Crisp, Marigold Morning... I can't remember the other two but all of that group looked dirty to me and I just don't like those dirty colors. Same thing with Baja Breeze... too dirty for me. I have a fear that some of the new In Colors have that dirty look, but I will have to wait til I get my preorder on Wednesday to decide in person! lol

I've never met a color I didn't like. I love the all, and it all depends on how and where you use them.

Favorite - Island Indigo or Baja Breeze. I also like Strawberry Slush and Midnight Muse.

I detest Summer Starfruit. I also don't like Pistachio.

I like most of the colors for various uses

I never liked dusty durango or crushed curry...and was bummed that crushed curry is now in the regular line up. Soft suede took some getting used to. Peach parfait always bored me...poppy parade was too much for me, but I am using my small stash and beginning to think I am going to miss it!

I don't like baked brown sugar, or any of the 2013-14 in colors; to blah for me...but I will use them occasionally

Summer starfruit is weird to me, but I began to like it; now it's gone.

I love purples...so elegant eggplant and rich razzleberry and concord crush...can't wait to see the blackberry (?) new color

I love blues with a touch of green, and variations of teal... so island indigo, bermuda bay, and not quite navy are fantastic

I definitely prefer rich, saturated colors... so cherry cobbler and cajun craze are yummy!

Basic gray, early espresso, and sahara sand are my favorite neutrals

I always buy the ink colors, and a variety pack of in-colors. If I like the color, I will buy a full pack of card stock.

I. Love. Color.

I still love and miss Kiwi Kiss! I also love Summer Starfruit and Crushed Curry.

I love color, so I wouldn't say "dislike", but I have the hardest time using and appreciating any of the corals (Cameo Coral, Calypso Coral, or Crisp Cantaloupe).

I like too many colours to list and would have a hard time picking a favourite. In general I tend to like jewel tones and pastels.

I generally tend not to like the mustardy-toned yellows (ie Crushed Curry etc) and I have a hard time using corals and also garden green. There are some now-retired colours I didn't like, but since they are gone, they don't worry me anymore!

Wow totally forgot about Purely Pomegranate. I loved that color and have used up every last scrap, although I think I might have a little bit of DSP with it. Every time SU re-does their colors, I hope they bring it back. Hopefully they will!
