Default SU! Bashful Blue

What current color is the closest/same as Bashful Blue? Also can anyone show a comparison with the colors? I know, was probably done when the colors came out but I went to get some cardstock and just realized I have run out of bashful blue cardstock.
TIA.

Very helpful. Thank you so much. Yes, I was disappointed that I had used my last sheet. I still have plenty of ink.

The Balmy Blue is just a tiny bit more green than the Bashful Blue. But it is really only seen when you have them together. Balmy Blue is a good substitute.

How does Seaside Spray compare? On my monitor it looks like it's just slightly darker than Bashful Blue and doesn't have the green tinge like Balmy Blue...

Good question Sue. To me, on my computer, it, Seaside Spray, does look darker but more, just a tinge of purple, maybe. The Balmy Blue, to me, looks more vibrant...a brighter Bashful Blue.

ETA: I don't have those colors so can't see it, IRL.

Here's four colors compared....


Seaside Spray is more of a "plain" blue, but is somewhat grayed.

Thank you , Diane - very helpful! I loved Bashful Blue, but I'm not a fan of any of these "replacements". Your comment is exactly why I shy away from Stampin'Up! colors these days - most of them are "somewhat grayed"...

I’m another one that loves Bashful Blue and am down to scraps! Sue, did you find a match with another company? If not, and Balmy Blue is closest, I wonder if it would work for baby shower favors (its a boy)!

finona's pic is very interesting - they don't look like that at all to my eyes!

I think Balmy blue is a close match to Bashful Blue, if a little more saturated. and Seaside Spray to me, has a hint of purple and gray

Photos never do justice to what things really look like. Judging from all of the photos I've seen, there isn't an "apples to apples" replacement for Bashful Blue, although there are a couple of "apples to oranges" options. Not lovin' either of them. I have the ink refill for my Bashful Blue pad and will just color the edges of white cardstock for mats, and ink up diecuts as needed...

Sue, great ideas. I agree, it's hard to determine IRL from photos.
