Default What is your favorite color family?

What is your favorite color family? Mine is rich regals. I really didn't like the regals at all when I first started stamping, bold brights was my very favorite, now I really don't like the brights too much except for pixie pink. So anyway, I was just curious.

Rich Regals. Used to hate it until we got all the new colors, now it's my fav! I don't dislike any of the color families though.

Bold Brights for me, although, I do have most of the earth elements as well. I am notorious for mixing color families and sometimes I think it makes people crazy when I do that. I just do what I think looks right for the card I'm making.

Bold Brights are my favorite. I just realized this week I have no Rich Regals CS.

Soft subtles closely followed by rich regals then bold then earth. I think once I get more paper in EE and RR I will use them more.

Hmmm . . . that's actually kind of a hard one for me. I guess if I had to pick, I'd choose Bold Brights. But, there are also several Soft Subtles as well as Chocolate Chip that I use all the time. I think I'm a color family mixer too.

Rich regals for me. I use all the blues all the time. I use all the other groups about equally.

I put Bold Brights but I really like to mix and match. My favorite color combo as of last night is Pixie Pink and Lavendar Lace. OHHHHHHHH so pretty!!!

I love Earth Elements with Rich Regal a close second. But then again I'm really liking the new In Colors too.

Wow, what a hard question! Mine was always bold brights, but as I look - I realize that I use celery, apricot, moss and banana alot! The only family I struggle with is EE - But I've been forcing myself to use them lately.

I voted rich regals, but it's tough to narrow it down to one color family. I tend to be a "seasonal" user i.e. regals in winter, brights in summer, etc. But there are some colors in the regal family that I use on nearly every project. I absolutely love the new rose.

Wow...hard question! I said Rich Regals...love that artichoke, rose red, so saffron but my fave colors are the new caribbean in color and celery. I would say though, I don't stick with one color group...I always mix them all up. Bold Brights are definitely my least used colors though...I rarely ever use them.

I voted for EE, although BB are a close second for me! But, I like all the colors (although I personally think we may be a little heavy on the blue).

I tend to be "seasonal" when it comes to colors. But, I voted for RR since it has a majority of my single favorite colors and color combos.

Oh, and Julia - I'm right there with ya! Artichoke, Saffron and Rose Red!!

Love the subtles, especially for the base of cards and those fabulous greens! The blues, artichoke, and saffron of the regals are essential too, as are the browns and mustard of the earth elements. I don't use much of the bold brights, except real red and turquoise.

I use Rich Regals by far the most--Saffron is so yummy! Then Soft Subtles--Celery and Apricot are favorites. I use some EE, but usually only Pixie and Real Red out of Bold Brights. But it can be seasonal, too, as others have suggested.
