I'm in a search for a (please, don't get weirded out by this request) blood red. Yes blood red, dark, red with the darker red tones not the orange ones. There has been no other way to describe it. Bazzill Pomegranite is nice and all but not deep enough and the dots don't work well with what I am doing. Any ideas out there?
Comma Holly - the Cajun Red I’ve seen it up close and personal, does not cut the mustard. Thank you much, much! Muchas, muchas gracia’s, Danke Sehr et Tres’ Merci!
Madmatter – will contact my CM rep. Did not think of that one! Cranberry
TheCharmedOne – These are a little too orange except the phoenix and ruby slipper but the red gets a little lost on these. They are closer to a rust. I think the lss has almost every shade of Bazzill there is and there wasn’t. I looked at the site (do visit it is a neat site! http://bazzillbasics.com/) And I did not see anything
The darker shades of red that have the deep dark tone that leads to the dark brown hint of burgundy but still has the power to say RED! I’ve seen it once and I did not buy. NEVER GO WINDOW SHOPPING WITHOUT ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY...A SHOP WINDOW! True, true on fresh or dried and the color is for Valentines! It is a fresh blood, a true blood color anemic has a slight orange, I’ve seen mine the color I like!
Have you seen HBO’s ‘True Blood’? Eric is a gorgeous Vampire! Some of the humans are yummy too!
Istory – Lisa, thank you it is a yes, a pretty shade but yes not dark enough. Good call on that one!
Scrap4brains – Marleen, A HUGE thank you! I will take a look at Close to My Heart – Cranberry Red now…Thank you again!
I promised my son I would use the banana as he was going to bed. there it is!
Thank You all for the suggestions! I am going to look at the other two suggested as well. Any one else have some blood red colored cardstock brand and color to share???
Maryann, I had to laugh at your son wanting the dancing banana. My daughter is always leaning over my shoulder while I'm typing, asking me to use one of the icons over the text box. I never do, poor thing...
Michaels Recollections brand has a nice dark blood red cardstock that is a shimmer cardstock. Its in the Gemstone paper packs. Its a little lighter weight (65lb), but its a really nice red shimmer cardstock. You could also check out some of the reds that Stampin Up has. I'm sure there's a demo in your area.
Okay, Here is the only thing that has come close. Bazzill Red Hot - Orasnge Peel texture by Bazzill, Coordinations - Scarlet. I'm probably never going to find it but these come close. STILL SEARCHING!!!
Still waiting on a call back from the CM person and I'm working on tracking down the other colors suggested. I'm one of those who has to see it and touch it. The stuff I saw was at least a 70 lb weight and it is looking like this is going to be one of those 'unicorn' things, a mythological creature rumored of but never seen...but I did see it and I know it exsists(the red cardstock not the unicorn)!
We are getting True Blood thru Fox and SyFy I believe. I see it every now n then when I'm at me parents as they have the digi box. I am still not sure what to think of the show tho but I have seen some gorgeous guys lol It's different from all the vampire shows I've seen so far. I know what kind of color you mean tho and yes, the colors on a pc screen are usually off. They can look good on mine and wrong on someone elses and vise versa. All depends how someone has their screen set up to be. I am not sure if CreaMotion is there aswell but they have some good colors aswell. Its a dutch brand tho...
Its a pain innit when ya look for something that you know excists cause ya seen it before and you cant find it again....
