PTI and SU Color Comparison Chart

Papertrey Ink and Stampin Up Color Comparison

I have searched and searched and could not find a comparison chart of Papertrey Ink colors and Stampin Up Colors.  So, I decide to make my own.

I used a little color key ring I made of PTI colors.


And a cardstock ring I bought on ebay, but I don't think the lady sells them anymore and had to make my own with the new in colors.

 
The reason I wanted this is because I have all the SU inks and really like them, the storage, the style, and the colors and wanted to know the matches for my PTI cardstock.  However, I have been disappointed in Stampin Up's ribbon choices and LOVE PTI's variety and that I don't have to buy 15 yards at a time.  Anyway, I wanted more options for matching it to my SU cardstock.  AND because I have a serious ribbon problem but that is another story!


Here is how I did it!  See how SU Melon Mambo and PTI Raspberry Fizz are almost the SAME color!


So here are the color matches I came up with.  The ones that don't have a match well, they didn't have a close enough match.  I know that a lot of the SU colors are retired but that is what matches!  Also, these are only the colors of PTI cardstock that I have.  The newer releases I will add as I get them.

THANK YOU!!!
I have been ordering stamps from PTI but only recently paper. I started wondering about color matching. Plus, some of the colors you matched up are retired by SU so now I know where to find some of my faves :)
