The Twinery & PTI Color Matches

Hello everyone!  I have had quite a few people asking me over the last year what Twinery colors of baker's twine matches Papertrey Ink's colors. I decided to put together a list that can be referenced when putting together your projects or to help with ordering!

There are a few colors that aren't necessarily an exact color match but they coordinate or compliment each other nicely and I listed it that way in my chart for your reference.

Twinery Color: Blossom
PTI Color Match: Sweet Blush



Twinery Color:  Pink Sorbet
PTI Color Match:  Raspberry Fizz
Complements:  Hibiscus Burst


Twinery Color: Maraschino
PTI Color Match: Pure Poppy


Twinery Color: Lilac
PTI Color Complements: Plum Pudding 

 
Twinery Color: Orchid
PTI Color Complements: Plum Pudding
*Note:  I also think you could use this one with Lavender Moon but it is a different shade


 Twinery Color: Cantaloupe
PTI Color Match: Melon Berry


Twinery Color:  Mandarin
PTI Closest Match: Terra Cotta Tile



Twinery Color: Lemondrop
PTI Color Match: Summer Sunrise
Coordinates with: Harvest Gold


Twinery Color: Buttercream
PTI Color Match:  Lemon Tart
PTI Coordinates With: Harvest Gold


Twinery Color: Peapod
PTI Coordinates With: New Leaf


Twinery Color: Honeydew
PTI Color Match: Simply Chartreuse & Spring Moss


Twinery Color: Denim
PTI Color Match: Enchanted Evening
PTI Coordinates With: Blueberry Sky


Twinery Color: Shore
PTI Color Match: Spring Rain
PTI Coordinates With: Blueberry Sky


Twinery Color: Caribbean
PTI Color Match: Hawaiian Shores
PTI Coordinates/Complements: Aqua Mist


Twinery Color: Cappuccino
PTI Color Match: Dark Chocolate


Twinery Color: Flax
PTI Color Match: Kraft
PTI Coordinates With: Dark Chocolate


Twinery Color: Charcoal
PTI Color Match: True Black


Twinery Color: Stone
PTI Coordinates With: Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow & True Black

I hope that that helps some! This is, of course, just my opinion on what matches and/or coordinates well.  There are other colors that would look very pretty with the twine too, but as far as paper color matches this should at least help.

So, what do you think?  Do you have other PTI colors that you'd recommend for matches or papers that coordinate?  I'd love to hear your opinions!

I hope to be back soon with some new rings I'm adding to my Jen's Ink Spot Etsy shop today!  If you would like to know when I add new rings or when I have specials, "Like" my Jen's Ink Spot Facebook page to stay up to date!

And tomorrow, I have will another Lil' Inker Designs post to wrap up this amazingly fun new release so be sure to stop back by!

Have a great day!
