Default What SU colors do you HOARD the most?

I was just doing inventory of my card-stock so I know how many packs of the current in colors to add to my hoard - and other colors in case of a color refresh, and I realized there are just a few colors I hoard much more than others and use only for special people who will appreciate the cards. So your colors don't have to be your most used colors or even all time favorites, but the ones you don't want to let go of!

My hoarded colors are:
#1 - Cool Caribbean - 7 packs
#2 - Primrose Petals - 6 packs
#3 - Soft Sky - 6 packs
#4 - Pretty In Pink - 5 packs
#5 - Bashful Blue - 5 packs

Once I get all the hoarding done with my upcoming final SAB order, all the leaving in colors - those will top the list though

I WISH I had hoarded Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Barely Banana and Certainly Celery. That being said, I'm hanging on to Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon.

Riding Hood Red and Summer Sun, need 'em for school color related stuff, Midnight Muse,Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow and Baked Brown Sugar. I have quite a stack of Poppy Parade, too, but haven't touched it in ages. When the next batch of InColors retire, I will add Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim to my hoard.

Sage Shadow, but then Mint Macaron came along and was a close match....only that is retired, too, so I hoard MM now.

Midnight MuseSummer Starfruit (I know I'm the only one who likes this color)
Poppy Parade


At first I was heartbroken over the retirement of Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery, but I'm learning to let go.

I love Regal Rose, but Flirty Flamingo seems to be pretty close. Of course FF will retire soon.


And Coastal Cabana is growing on me, so I'm now sorry that I didn't buy a pack of paper when I had the chance.


I missed Blackberry Bliss, but it was fabulous.


I started with SU after Summer Sun retired, but it looks like the perfect yellow orange, and I wish it would come back.


I'm also excited about Dapper Denim, but I'm reluctant to get started with another color that will just wind up retiring.

Blackberry Bliss-5 packs

Coastal Cabana-5 packs-took the place of Cool Caribbean in my ❤️ Bliss and CC tie for first place! Love these!❤️

Cool Caribbean - 6 sheets CC was my favorite color for years! I got it when I first started stamping and knew nothing! Haha! I only bought 1 pack and can't believe I didn't at least buy one more! No re-Inker either!

2 variety packs with the in-colors that had CC, Strawberry Slush, the mint, Baked Br. Sugar

Baked Brown Sugar-2 packs

Peach Parfait-6 sheets. Only bought that 1 pack! Ugh! No re-inker! Ugh!

My very few textured card stock colors . Might have one sheet Bermuda Bay and one crushed Curry! Loved that stuff!

Baja Breeze-somehow forgot to stock up on BB! I have 1 pack plus a 1/2 pack!

If I'd ever bought Raspberry Ripple I'd have that hoarded! Love that color and never bought it.?????

Certainly Celery-6 sheets but at least Pear Pizzazz replaced it!

Almost Amethyst - 2 packs

Summer Sun (still have the ink pad too and one ink refill left!)
Brilliant Blue-- I loved that color still have the ink pad on that one too!

I really miss the primary colors like Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow brights like that. I've been hoarding paper on my last couple orders as a just in case they do a color renovation.

This morning I found an unopened 12x12 variety pack of the in-colors (Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar,etc.) and I was so excited! It's the textured Cor'dinations.

I didn't really remember they had Cor'dinations in these colors! I wondered why I only bought the two variety packs and now I remember I thought with the addition of the 12x12 pkg. that would be enough! A happy find!

A few mention this... but I too end up loving colors long after they retired so I never stocked up! When the whole Coastal Cabana / Crisp Cantaloupe / In Color line was out, I rarely used it. I bought one assorted pack I think and that was it. And OMG - next to the In Colors that are about to retire - I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! But I didn't stock up at all. I had such a hard time with certainly celery retiring - but then Pistachio Pudding caught my heart about a year ago. I know it's a different shade, but I love it. And I loved Peach Parfait, but my love become Crisp Cantaloupe. It seems like quite a bit of us loved Cool Caribbean!!! I've been ok with the different takes on this shade since then, but none have all of my heart like CC

If chocolate chip retires since a color refresh seems due I will need at least five packs and two more reinkers! I've never embraced Espresso. I know it's a fave over CC for most.

There's a few more colors I'll stock up on if they retire. Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, & Bermuda Bay. Wonder if any of these will go if there is a shake up of colors!


Sorry to slightly veer of course / a slight high Jack!

I love Expresso! It’s by far my favourite dark brown. Isn’t it wonderful how different we all are

If SU was smart... they would listen to all of us and have a year of bring back favourites instead of new in colours... call it Retro Re-do, call it Encore...


Bring back Pistachio Pudding, Amethyst, Mello Moss, Pink Pirouette, and I don’t mind what last 2

Midnight Muse!

When I see that someone is selling that color card stock, I try to snap it up.

ETA: How could I forget about Mossy Meadow? I love that color, too!

I went through all my paper yesterday and added a few to the list -- Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Marina Mist, Crushed Curry, Island Indigo and Cajun Craze. I'm assuming that SU! will always offer a good variety of neutrals and I don't need to stock up on colors like Sahara Sand, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.

Me too! For several of the colors I've been able to find close enough matches from the Gina K line. I've gotten spoiled since her store moved to the Milwaukee area, and I'm a little west of there. I can see the colors in person before buying.

Poppy Parade and Blackberry Bliss. I'm also a hoarder of my Poppy Parade ink because for some unknown reason I didn't buy a reinker.

Off topic but I was able to go to Gina's store last year when I was in Nilwaukee for a work training. It was fun to see it. I live on the opposite side of the state from you.


Way off topic......my hotel was on the north side of Milwaukee and that trip to Gina's store was crazy! Driving in Milwaukee is crazy! Madison is easy! Milwaukee ...ugh!
