DMC Colours to match the new Colour Collections

I just love the new Colour Collections and wanted to match my DMC embroidery floss to them.  Here's a few of my crocheted flowers to show you.  There are lots of patterns online for these easy flowers, I'm a self taught crocheter, so if I can do it....anyone can! 

I saved an old list I found ages ago on Splitcoaststampers for matching embroidery floss to go with our cardstock. I’ve just updated the list for my personal use and added my own selections for the new colours. Someone else did the initial work on this list and I’d love to give credit for the old file if anyone knows who originally compiled it!

I like to make my own embellishments (especially in the winter time!) things like little crocheted flowers, or snowflakes, and I like to tie matching floss through buttons for my cards.  Here's a quick and easy 4 x 4 card using the floss to match the Melon Mambo cardstock. Easy...just a bit of layering, a polka dot embossing folder and the Little Leaves Sizzix die and half back pearls.


PS...These are the closest matches to my floss collection...there are new colours all the time, I haven’t bought any for a few you might just find a closer match than I did {g}
