Default paper to match Memento ink

Does anyone have any good matches for cardstock to any Memento ink? I love my memento inks and it would be great to get cardstock for them.

thanks

Er, well, I use Papertrey paper with the few Memento inks I have... but things are iffy with Papertrey right now... I'm thinking if one buys from them there'll still be a good chance that the transaction will go smoothly... but it might be a huge hassle if there is a problem.

Anyhow, I went the reverse route as you - I had the paper first and was looking for inks to match (Papertrey was having ink problems).

I bought:
Memento Rosebud for Papertrey Hibiscus
Memento Summer Sky for Papertrey Spring Rain
Memento Pear Tart for Papertrey Spring Moss

These are the three Memento colours I have (I also have their Tuxedo Black).

edited to add:
Oh!! I should clarify that these are not EXACT matches!!! But they are good enough for me...

Melanie has a great bit of information on her blog regarding matching Memento ink to card stock. Hands, Head and Heart

Default Color match

Bazzill has a chart on their website that shows which Memento ink colors match their cardstock. New Memento colors are at the top of the page. Older Memento colors are down towards the bottom.

HTH,

Thanks for the link to bazzill.

Does anyone know how their 100 lb cardstock stacks up to some of the other 100 lb paper (like the poptones paper?).

I like Bazzill but in the past their cardstock has been too lightweight - did not know they had 100 lb weight.
