Default color of GinaK Sweet Mango?

I am in dire need of orange cardstock for some Halloween projects. I have ordered from GinaK before, and really love the quality of her heavyweight cardstock. But I just got boring colors like white and kraft last time. It is a little hard to tell on the website what color intensity the Sweet Mango is. If anyone has it on hand, or has used it in the past could tell me, is it a good Halloween orange? I don't want anything too pale, or too brown. Just a good orange.
Thank you so much!

Amy

I'm sorry I don't have the GinaK sweet mango. On my monitor it looks like a nice orange. I was scrolling through the StampTV site looking for videos that featured that color hoping to catch a mention of it as a good "Halloween" orange or not. Unfortunately; my day job calls so I must go.

I can tell you that either the Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie or Tangerine Tango are both good oranges and make cute Halloween stuff. The Tangerine is a little "brighter" while the Pumpkin seems a little more brown...but on it's own you would never think it was a "brown" orange, just compared to the other one. However; the SU weight of card stock is good; it is NOT as heavy as the heavy base weight Gina K papers.

Thank you so much for replying! Unfortunately I live in a country where I don't have access to SU! products, unless I do some underhanded dealing. But GinaK will ship directly to me without it costing an arm and a leg. I guess I will go ahead and order it. I can always use it for something else, if it's not exactly what I am looking for.

Here is a card I made with Sweet Mango. I hope that helps show you the color of orange. Each monitor is a bit different so it's really hard to be exact but I hope this helps a bit.

I just bought two packs of the Gina K Sweet Mango for Halloween projects, and it is such a great color. I haven't started making anything yet, but will soon.
