This week at Just Add Ink, we're challenging you to add WOODGRAIN to your card, or papercraft project.  Maybe you have a stamp, some patterned paper, or an embossing folder that fits the bill.  We'd love to see what you come up with!

I've used my Woodgrain background stamp, from Stampin' Up!, and have gone to town with Gumball Green!   I did stamp the Woodgrain on the patterned paper, but it didn't show up (you might just have to take my word for that one).

Stamps: Woodgrain, Aviary, That's the Ticket
Card: Gumball Green, Whisper White, Basic Black
DSP: Print Poetry Designer Series Paper stack
Ink: Gumball Green stampin' pad, Jet Black Staz-On inkpad
Other: 2 1/2" Circle punch, Ticket Duo punch, Neutrals brads, Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig, In Color Dahlia, Stampin' Distress tool, sponge dauber, glue dots
I must give credit to my friend Leanne, for suggesting I use a black sentiment ticket in the centre - doesn't it look fabulous?  I just love how it stands out.
Make sure you check out the rest of the samples created by the Design Team; there are some VERY cool ideas to inspire you!


  1. I do love the ticket idea Christine and good call by Leanne to add black, it's a very striking colour combination. Your woodgrain looks 3D, l thought you had used the folder until l read your post. Another lovely Christine card. xxx

  2. Gumball green looks fabulous with a woodgrain stamp! I was completely stumped with this woodgrain challenge until I gave up on a card and went with a tag (less area to work out what to do with the woodgrain!). LOVE the black tag sentiment - it really does add that something extra. I have never thought of combining GG with BB, but it makes for a lovely fresh combo! I can't wait for our trip - counting down the days now….

  3. I love that this has a rustic but really fresh feel too Christine. The black accents do really add that zing factor! xxx

  4. I love your card,it realy is a nice colour combo.

  5. You've done a great job with this card, Christine! Those tickets across the front are such a fun addition.

  6. Oh Christine I just love the colour choice for this card!! I really like the subtle use of the woodgrain for this one :)
