Default SU and CTMH Color Comparison

For those of you who use both SU! and CTMH papers and inks, do you find similarities in the colors? Can some colors be substituted from one brand for the other? Is there a color comparison chart that you know of?

How about PTI or Gina K to CTMH comparisons?

I've been using the others for awhile but am about to place my first CTMH order. So I'm in need of any/all advice for cross-over colors that complement one another and to avoid duplicates.

I would like to find cardstock something close to Sage Shadow in a nice weight to use for card bases now that sage is going to be retired. Any suggestions?

There aren't really any overlaps from SU! to CTMH. The colors are all really pretty different, especially seeing as CTMH is white core and SU is solid core.

Just so know that CTMH cardstock is thinnest of all you mentioned and it is white core. I love CTMH products and i am in a monthly club but I do not buy their cardstock. It is not for paper projects and you cannot do alot of layers on cards when using it for a base. --BUT it is perfect for scrpabooking.

PTI & GinaK are the heaviest cardstocks. They do have comparable colors to SU. Both of these companies have white cardstock that is awesome! I use nothing else on my cards. It is also heavy enought o use as bases.

SU does have the largest colorway though.

Check out this site as there are all the comparisons of colors for PTI & SU

THis is an older comparison I got from another CTMH consultant a while ago:

Comparison of CTMH colors to SU colors

autumn terracotta-really rust
baby pink - pretty in pink
Black - black
bamboo-sahara sand
barn red-n/a
breeze-a pastel tempting turquoise
bubblegum-pixie pink
buttercup - barely banana
chocolate-chocolate chip
citrus leaf-green galore
clover meadow - green galore a little lighter
Cocoa-basic brown
colonial white- vanilla
cranberry - ruby red
crystal blue - n/a
desert sand - Kraft Brown
dutch blue - ballet blue
garden green - mellow moss
garnet-n/a
goldrush-more mustard
Grey Flannel -going gray
Grey Wool -darker grey
heavenly blue -bashful blue
holiday red - real red is darker
hollyhock - rose romance
hydrangea-like a purple crayon
indian corn blue - brocade blue
Key Lime-gable green
lilac mist - n/a
moonstruck - brilliant blue
new england ivy - handsome hunter
ocean-taken with teal
olive - old olive
orange - only orange a shade darker
orchid bouquet - slightly lighter than marvelous magenta
outdoor denim - night of navy
Pansy Purple-n/a
parchment-blush blossom
pink carnation- a little darker than regal rose
ponderosa pine - forest foliage
smokey plum - perfect plum
spring iris -really weird shade of blue/purple
star spangled blue - another really weird shade of blue ( I don't know anything that matches it! )
sunflower - summer sun
sunkiss yellow - yo yo yellow a shade darker
sunny yellow - yo yo yellow
sweet leaf- certainly celery
taffy-blush blossom is slightly lighter
topiary-a brighter garden green
vineyard berry - baroque burgundy
watermelon - pink passion,
White - white

CTMH cardstock is white core, but I find it to work perfectly for any project I'm working on. Whether it be altering items, cards or scrapbooking!
HTH!

roxybonds - thanks so much; this is exactly what I was looking for! It will save me so much time when the new SU! colors are released.

Though you can compare those colors listed above, none of them are an exact match. SU's colors are exclusive to them, as are CTMH's colors. For instance, CTMH's chocolate is a bit greener than SU's chocolate chip. They do not match, not even remotely. Moonstruck is significantly lighter than Brilliant Blue.

Having been a demo for both companies, I see good uses for either. CTMH CS distresses nicely, and seeing as the core is white, you can do some really cool techniques with it. SU CS is heavier and better for boxes and other projects. I find it is too heavy for my liking for layering on cards or in scrapbooks. Good luck finding what works best for you!
