Default Most Often Used Color of CS

I guess my question is: What is your favorite color of cardstock? Are there certain colors that you grab more often than others and what are they and why? Thank you. Paige

Default Favorite Color

My favorite is Mellow Moss. Barely Banana is also nice for the bottom layer since it is light enough to stamp your card inside. A layer of Basic Black is also nice to set things off.

I go through Eggplant Envy like crazy! I think I mostly end up using it for matting and things more so than as a card base.

I love Real Red and Lovely Lilac....I use both of them for so many things and I love them together too...I constantly am purchasing more from my demonstrator. All the Bold Brights are my favorites!

I use a ton of Night Of Navy! It goes well with so many colors, Old Olive, Baroque Burgundy, Mellow Moss, Green Galore SU!'s yellows and the list goes on! Once you start using Night of Navy, it may just become a staple.

I've been on a mellow moss kick lately....it's one of the few ink colors I have, so maybe that is part of the reason. I love it with eggplant envy and night of navy...

Default Gable Green! But then,

I love most shades of green (it's my favorite) and go thru any of our greens (except for Glorious Green) like there's no tomorrow. Right now, I'm on a gable green kick because it goes awesome with rose Red, Rose Romance, Pretty in Pink, Eggplant Envy, Lav. Lace, Bliss Blue, Barely Banana, and my favorite combo right now is with Tempting Turquoise!



Before they changed the dye lots with the NEW Bliss Blue, I would have said I consumed more Bliss Blue than anything else . . . sigh . . . I hate the NEW Bliss Blue and wish they'd bring the original back . . . it was so perfect for Sympathy and Baby Boy cards, so soft, and now it has turquoise undertones and is "brighter" somehow. Yuck.

I always say that I love red, but I find that I tend to gravitate toward the earthy colors, Earth Elements, for some reason. I'd have to say that I use More Mustard a lot and yellow is usually my least favorite colors. Great question. Hard for me to answer, lol.

Default My color favorites

I forgot to finish the rest of my reply. Ackkk. I love the following colors also: red as I had said earlier, any of the jewel tones such as b. burgundy, forest foliage, mellow moss is a big favorite, too. I like so many colors that I used to not really care for. Here is a link to a 2-step/2-color combo swap I hosted about a year ago. This helped open up more colors for me. Now I'm color happy.
There are six pages by the way and I see a couple of missing photos

Well I've been on a Bliss blue and Pretty in Pink mood latly. I also love Creamy caramel with them too. I made several of my trades for convention with those color combinations.

I have to say that though the greens are my personal favorite, Night of Navy is the color that gets used most for my cards and pieces. It seems to be pleasing to most people and it works with so many colors.

I go through cycles. I used to use a lot of Pale Plum and Perfect Plum. Now I use a lot of Ballet Blue and Night of Navy. Real Red is a great one, too, because it always adds an extra punch of color.

I think I've finally gotten over this weird thing I used to do - I would use the colors that I didn't like very much. Maybe to get rid of them? I don't know. But what ended up happening a lot of times is that I would fall in love with a color once I used it! That has happened with a few stamp sets, too. Strange!

I have been on a total pale plum, perfect plum & mellow moss streak. I swear I can't get enough of those colours lately

I think my class must be getting sick of them!

Default most used color

I think I use the color that suits the occasion (or mood), the hostesses favorite, but judging by what I go through the most it's probably navy, the plums and green galore (not together )
I also find moss and banana are pretty popular.

I tend to use alot of Barely Banana, Gable Green, Bliss Blue (I also wish they'd bring the old color back!) and Almost Amethyst mostly because they make great base card to add other colors on.

I'm absolutely addicted (right now at least) to the color combination of Cameo Coral, Bliss Blue, Gable Green and Barely Banana. Found this on an inspiration sheet and it is SOOOO 'spring'! Whenever I use this combo, people seem to just LOVE it!

I've been using a LOT of creamy caramel and close to cocoa lately, with a splash of real red thrown in for POP.

Truthfully, though I don't have a favorite.

Oh, and I also like yo-yo yellow and only orange together. Bright and summery!!

I was on a plum and mellow moss kick for a while. Mellow moss goes with almost anything!

This time of year though I gravitate toward the Green Galore (love greens). Another color I use a lot is Rose Romance.

My way of saving money right now is to only buy from one color family. Cardstock, pads, refills, and eyelets can add up, so I'm only using the Bold Brights. I would have to say that Positively Pink and Green Galore are my favorites. The other color families are starting to tempt me though, and I love hearing what everyone else uses the most.

I use a TON of Mellow Moss & Eggplant Envy....so I guess those are my 2 favorites, but I have lots of others I love as well.

I guess it would be easier to name the few colors I don't much care for, because I basically love them all.

The colors I use most are Old Olive, Baroque Burgandy, and Night of Navy. Old Olive is the shade of green I like the most & put with a lot of my cards. The other 2 are my favorite colors.
