Default Anyone Else wish SU would Bring Back the Brights Collection??

Those Colors were Great for Childrens cards and Projects. School Colors, Halloween and just generally FUN!!!

Yo Yo Yellow was my favorite. Only Orange was the go to color for Halloween. I suppose for everyday stamping both of those colors were too harsh. We may be in the minority for liking theses colors. Niki

The only one of those colors I would like back is Brilliant Blue. And not just because it's our school colors but I just really liked the color. As for the others, I have to say I was happy to see them go. It just wasn't my color family.

There are a few that met a certain need, for sure. But I do like that they freshen things up. I think I would lose interest if the colours had stayed the same since I started stamping in 2004.

I must admit, I rarely used those colors. Except for Brilliant Blue and YoYo Yellow which were our local school colors. Also my niece's school colors. And several other friends/families' school colors. So I really only miss those right now!

However, I still have quite a bit of leftover paper I'm slowly using up. I do make kids' birthday cards using the brighter shades.

I loved those colors for summer cards and kids cards. They were definitely fun colors. Those colors are also used for many schools colors.

They had their use certainly, however, I love the new colors. I think there are great colors for children's cards and birthdays. I have all the new and still have all my old colors, I never seem to use them though.

I miss Green Galore. I used it a lot. I still have a stash of it, but I don't know what I'm going to do when it runs out! I miss Brilliant Blue too. The other two I used most are the two that have stayed - Tempting Turquoise and Real Red.
I most miss a lot of the Soft Subtles that they retired - sage shadow, moss, lavender lace, pale plum, and now bashful blue & pretty ink pink.

I still have a soft Subtle stash too but I never use them for fear of running out...It is so silly...I stock up on the retired colors and then can't bring myself to use them....

I miss some of those colors, too. I find it is getting harder and harder to find basic colors!

I don't miss them, but our kids are grown and I don't have school colors to deal with anymore. 4 years ago I got all the variety packs of their color groups and the Bold Brights was my least favorite. I bought separate packs of just the red and blue and hardly used any of the others. When they redid all the colors in 2010 I had most of the new Brights already-I had got them separately when they were InColors.
