PTI DT Colour Favourites – Maile

By Taheerah | 9th February 2010 | 10 Comments

Hey all,

I’m back with my second card for the colour challenges. Nichole really gave us a great challenge with this idea!! I have to say I’m having a ball with it as I really love my colour combos!!

The next swatch I chose was for Maile’s colours:

Really bold and funky aren’t they?! I’ve never mixed these colours before and I probably wouldn’t have thought to incorporate Enchanted Evening and Raspberry Fizz!! This is one of the things I love most about colour combo challenges – you really get to try new things that are maybe outside of your usual modus operandi!!

Anyway, enough with the intellectual speak, hehe! Here’s my card:

I really love this one, it turned out so fun!! I bought Scattered Showers from a fellow PTI Forum member and thought this was the perfect opportunity to ink it up!!

I started with a Kraft base and rounded the top right corner. Loving my new Corner Chomper from We R Memory Keepers – goes through PTI cardstock like buttah!!

I then added a strip of Enchanted Evening In Bloom patterned paper. I punched one edge with my new Stampin’ Up punch (a freebie I got when ordering some SU! dies with my Forum friend!) and then adhered the strip with Scor-Tape.

I stamped the umbrella handle directly onto the base with Dark Chocolate ink. I then stamped the parasol onto a separate piece of Kraft cardstock with Raspberry Fizz ink. Doesn’t the new formula pop so well?! I cut out the parasol carefully and adhered with Pinflair to give some dimension. I then stamped the sentiment from 2009 Autumn Tags (God I love that font!!) with Dark Chocolate ink.

Lastly I added a strip of Raspberry Fizz Twill Tape in a ruffled/folded fashion. I got the ruffled look by adding a strip of Scor-Tape first, cutting a length or ribbon longer than the strip and then folding the ribbon over randomly and holding it in place with the tape. Safer than me trying to sew it on!!

So what do you think? I really love this colour combo and may well use it again, it’s so much fun! And I’m really glad I got Scattered Showers too, it’s so pretty!!
