Looking for a good purple ink
I'd like to make some Christmas cards with snowflakes. I've seen some in different galleries that incorporate both blues & purples. I really like that look.

I'm about to place a Stampin Up order but I don't think that they have a purple, do they?

Any suggestions?

Stampin' Up has a number of purples:

In Color Wisteria Wonder (grayish lavender)
Perfect Plum (mid range purple)
Elegant Eggplant (dark purple)
Rich Razzleberry (berry purple)

Hope one of those works for you!

One of my favorites is the Stampin' Up Elegant Eggplant. I think it is a great purple color!

My favorite is Elegant Eggplant and you can get two different shades of this by stamping once with a freshly inked stamp; then stamping again without re-inking.

I don't have Wisteria Wonder but those two might look good together then just throw in a blue and I think you'd be able to create a very pretty snowflake card.

I am loving the newer purple of Distress Seedless preserves. I will be using that a lot for Halloween I think.

I use Distress Ink, Adirondack, Versamagic and A Muse inks. . . .

I am not a pink/purple person really and don't use many in those shades, but as soon as I saw this question I immediately thought how much I've enjoyed using A Muse Grape, Heather and Amethyst - especially together because they give you a nice range. Also, there's a Blackberry that is one of my all-time favorite colors in any brand!

Winter Sky is really a blue . . . but with a hint of lavender that you might like.

Of the SU colors I've seen, I think the new Wisteria is especially pretty and also liked the Razzleberry one.

I hope you find colors you love!

PTI has a gorgeous purple called Winter Wisteria - love it!
