Following up on my post where I showed you ink swatches of my almost complete collection of ink pads from Hero Arts, including colors from Avery Elle, Memento (dye and pigment), and Versafine I want to make a comparison today.
I know that many people are Stampin’ Up! customers and there are also a whole host of great color challenge blogs out there that give out challenges with the SU colors. I found it always difficult to figure out which color of my existing ink pads matches which SU color. So, I have some photos for you today to make up your own mind and I’ve also included a PDF chart – free to download! – that lists the matches I’ve found.
Note: You can download both the photos and the PDF chart and use them for your own personal use. If you want to share them with others, please link them to this blog post. Please do not remove the copyright watermark on the photos or the PDF. Thank you!
As for the PDF and the matches: I don’t own a single Stampin’ Up! ink pad, so my friend Ramona, who is a SU Demo at Scrapstueble, kindly lend me her ink pads and markers to create some swatches for myself. I found that I have some good matches with my existing inks, yet for some colors I don’t have anything that comes close. I have indicated the “accuracy” of the match in the PDF with some smiley faces 🙂
