Default MFT Pink Lemonade

Pink Lemonade looks like such a pretty color. Can anyone tell me how it compares to SU's Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink?

I don't have any SU colors, but Pink Lemonade is very pretty. I will ask the other designers, but if you post in the MFT company forum, you might get a quicker response

I just stamped with all three inks on a piece of white card stock. The Pretty in Pink is the darkest of the three. The Pink Lemonade is the lightest of the three. The Pink Lemonade also has a true pink color to it, where as the Pink Pirouette has a slightly different color. Not quite sure how to describe it.

I can take a picture for you in the morning. It's just too dark here right now.

I used to use Pink Pirouette all the time for my soft, light pink.....now I only use MFT Pink Lemonade. Love the MFT colors and quality of card stock.

I think the Pink Pirouette has some yellow in it...maybe that describes the difference...it's not a clear pink. HTH

I would love to see a picture if stampinjewelsd gets a chance to post one. Just the name, "pink lemonade" makes me think THAT would be the pink with a little yellow in it; but names are not always the most accurate gauge in deciding how a color looks.

I got rid of of my Pretty in Pink from SU when they retired a bunch of colors a year or two ago. I just never used it and never liked it very much. I have plans to get Pink Pirouette as I think that is a prettier pink between the two. But would love a chance to check out MFT's pink next to the SU pinks for comparison. I just don't use pink that much in any of my crafting but it is nice to have some on hand for those "new baby girl" cards!

Between the two, I prefer Pink Pirouette to Pretty in Pink. I have both, but would like another paper option since I seldom order from SU anymore. Pink Lemonade does look pretty on the monitor, but sometimes it's hard to tell, so I decided to ask if it was close to one or the other SU pinks for comparison.

I keep seeing the lovely pink lemonade paper and decided to go hunting. MFT papers are Pop Tones and they are available many places. Paper Temptress is one of those and they have a comparison to SU cardstock on their page...text, not pictures, but might be helpful. They also offer several different sampler packs of the paper.

Here's their color comparison:

1. Wild Cherry - Real Red
2. Whip Cream - In between Very Vanilla & Whisper White
3. Tangy Orange - Dusty Durango
4. Sweet Tooth - Whisper White
5. Spearmint - None
6. Sour Apple - In between Kiwi Kiss and Gable Green
7. Sno Cone - Soft Sky
8. Red Hot - None
9. Razzle Berry - Pink Passion
10. Pink Lemonade - Pink Pirouette
11. Orange Fizz - In between Only Orange and Pumpkin Pie
12. Limeade - Gable Green
13. Lemondrop - YoYo Yellow
14. Jellybean Green - In between Always Artichoke and Old Olive
15. Hot Fudge - A bit darker than Chocolate Chip
16. Gumdrop Green - A bit darker than Green Galore
17. Grapesicle - A bit lighter than Pale Plum
18. Grape Jelly - None
19. Cotton Candy - Pretty in Pink
20. Bubblegum - In between Blush Blossom and Pretty in Pink
21. Blu Rasberry - A bit lighter than Bermuda Bay
22. Black Licorice - A bit lighter than Basic Black
23. Berrylicious - A bit lighter than Baja Breeze
24. Banana Split - None
