My love for Hawaiian Papaya DP

Good Wednesday morning!
Here we are....half way through the week...yippee! Tomorrow I am at a casino fundraiser for the school all day. Should be interesting as I have NO clue what I am doing...chip runner is all I know. Oh well, it's for the kids and the school right?! I'm sure it will be fun!
Yesterdays Colour Combo was awesome!!! One of my favourites lately!!!
Choc Chip, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss
You know what that means??? Yep...I used Hawaiian Papaya DP....but not on this first card.
This first one is pretty straight forward. I actually can't believe I didn't use and DP on it but then the stamp is large and I'd cover up too much of it....so why waste it right?! Wish SU! had markers in the new in colours but they don't so I used some Fantastix that Beate got me hooked on when she RAK'd me some last Spring :) They work wonderfully for applying ink to the flower pieces with re-inkers.
Stamps: Inspired by Nature; Cardstock: Kiwi, Tangerine, Choc Chip, WW; Inks: Choc Chip, Tangerine, Kiwi, More Mustard; Accessories: SU scalloped edge punch, Kiwi ribbon, Lg Oval Punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Designer Label punch, Dimensionals and Fantastix
My second card for yesterday's Colour Challenge. These colours seemed perfect for the new set from SUINK called Giving Thanks.
Stamps: Giving Thanks; Cardstock: Choc chip, Kiwi, Tangerine, WW and Hawaiian Papaya DP; Inks: Adirondack Black, Choc Chip and Creamy Caramel; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Circle Punches, Designer Label Punch, Tangerine and Kiwi Ribbons, Dimensionals
This week at Storage Unit, Inks & More, Mary Jo challenged us to make an invite! Any invite but with Thanksgiving this coming weekend(here in Canada) I thought this was appropriate. I decided on a fairly simple pocket card for my design. The pocket measures 4.25 x 4.25. The insert was typed up on my computer and printed off on white cardstock. I added some cute pumpkins from the Bountiful Harvest set and doodled around the edges. When the invite is inside the pocket the turkey image is behind the young girl scalloped circle.
This will fit inside a regular sized envelope.
If you play along with the challenge and upload to SCS please use keywords SUINKWWC9.

Stamps: Bountiful Harvest; Cardstock: Tangerine, Choc Chip, WW and Hawaiian Papaya; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Choc chip marker, Nesties, Tangerine Ribbon, Misc leaf brads, SU! scalloped edge punch

Dawn,
What are fantastiks??? Haven't heard of them. I usually have to apply In Colors with a dry aquapainter and it is sort of messy. Is there another way???

Adorable cards. Love the sentiment treatment on your first card and have to agree with you, these colors are perfect together. Your second card is just darlin' - love how you added the little dog! And last but not least your invite is out of this world adorable...great idea to use a pocket card.

Carolyn King said...

You make these colors look so good together! I just can't get into Tangerine Tango for some reason. Love the invites--adorable.

Laura (scrapnextras) said...

Fabulous...all of them, but I'm partial to the first...so suited to the colours and I love how you did the sentiment!

MJ said...

wonderful cards, every one of them. I too thought this was a super color challenge, they are perfect for this time of year. Although my migraine has kept me from playing yet. The invites is perfect, I love how the one fits behind the other-nice surprise and of course the Indian girl and her dog are to darn cute. That little dog is my favorite stamp from the set, although I have not used it yet. Great job on all the challenges.

Deborah said...
