Color of the Month for September is Amethyst

Imagine Crafts's color of the month for September 2019 is the deep purple color Amethyst.

Imagine’s Color of the Month for September is Amethyst. This deep, luscious purple is perfect for fall inspiration. Not only is this color great for Halloween crafting, but is a great hue for all your fall time cards including back-to-school projects. Some of our favorite Amethyst hued ink finds include the aptly named Amethyst VersaColor inkpad, VersaFine Clair in Monarch and Memento’s Grape Jelly in the marker, full-size and DewDrop inkpads.

September also brings an exciting collaboration with Waffle Flower! Keep a watch on both our and Waffle Flower’s blogs and YouTube channels all month long to see some inspiring projects using both of our products! We used their Pretty Wings stamp set in our Color of the Month image. Isn’t it a beauty? The most exciting part about the collaboration with Waffle Flower? You can WIN prizes! To enter all you need to do is subscribe to both Imagine and Waffle Flower’s YouTube channels and comment on the videos published this month using both of our products! (One comment per video per person.) Two lucky winners will win $50 gift certificates – one from each sponsor.

Here’s a sneak peek on what fun stuff we have coming your way this month.
