  1. Honestly, I don’t. The replacement colors are typically based on fashion and home decor trends, not replacement. If you have a specific color your are inquiring about, please feel free to email me.

    Reply
  2. Do you know of a color chart that would show the retires inks and what the replacement colors would be? Thank you so much for your time and effort

  3. I guess I love non traditional colors for Christmas. I love the elegant eggplant with smoky slate. Also love crumb cake with cherry cobbler. Thanks so much for sharing all of your creativity with us!

    Reply
  4. I love starting a card with Crumb Cake! Next you can let your imagination run wild and use any traditional red and green combination or be brave and go with Night of Navy or any combination of colors that will make the Holidays magic!

    Reply
  5. I really enjoy all of the color combos from SU! but my favorite is Real Red/Garden Green/Whisper White…it’s so classic!

    Reply
  6. The mossy meadow is my favorite green with my holiday candy dots…and with the always favorite cherry cobbler, my Stampin room is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

    Reply
  7. I love Real Red for sentiments and accents, but Cherry Cobbler makes a great card base for Christmas.

    Reply
  8. I’m using Crumb Cake a lot for Christmas Cards this year. It really looks good with the Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow. I love making Christmas cards — it’s my favorite time of the year.

  9. Cherry cobbler is my favorite color for Christmas. Love the deep, rich color. Thank you for a chance to win the blog candy, Mary!

  10. My go to combo has always been cherry cobbler, always artichoke and vanilla. So rich!
    Thank you Mary

    Reply
  11. Hands down, it’s Cherry Cobbler! I hope SU never discontinues it, as it has been my favorite color since it was introduced.

    Reply
  12. I initially thought Cherry Cobbler but then I realized that you asked Holiday color. Since we aren’t being specific as to which Holiday I have to say Black since I use it on so many of my Holiday cards.

    Reply
  13. Wow! What a response! I’m part of the large CHERRY COBBLER group–to me it truly says Christmas more than any other color.

    Reply
  14. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas, so I’m sure I will most likely reach for Real Red and a variety of greens, gold, silver, and white to compliment the red. But they won’t be boring at all because Stampin Up has added such a collection of matte, shiney, glitter, vellum, light and heavy weight papers. Not to mention all the doilies and embellishments. I might try a few of the shades of red, but I highly doubt you will find any pink, purple or turquoise on my stamping table!

    Reply
  15. Cherry Cobbler is my favorite. Thank you for the chance to win. I look forward to your daily post of inspiration.

  157. I really liked the combo of Rich Razzleberry and Always Artichoke that you used on your recent
    butterfly card. I used these same colors and layout to make a card using the Delicate Ornaments dies. Beautiful!

  158. Cherry Cobbler is my favorite red but I love using blue and green to switch it up some years. Then it is usually Baja Breeze (or whatever I feel like).

  171. It is hard to pick just on color. In my early stamping years I would have picked real red and garden green, now I tend to lean toward cherry cobbler and mossy meadow with a touch of gold or silver.

  186. My favorite Christmas color would have to be Cherry Cobbler. It is such a deep red and partners so well with so many of the greens we have.
    I’ll be at WCMD in Atlanta too. I’m not a Pal, but Brian loves me anyway.

  190. Cherry Cobbler is the one, not too bright, very subtle and gives just the right amount of red to any Christmas card.
