This week's Just Add Ink challenge is to use this gorgeous colour combination on your papercraft project:

Once I'd decided on Pistachio Pudding as the feature colour of my card, I had a bit of trouble working out how to incorporate Crumb Cake - unheard of, as it's my all-time favourite neutral!  I focussed on Pistachio Pudding with gold accents, and ended up sponging around the edges of everything with Crumb Cake ink.  I think the card I made would work well for an engagement or wedding.
Stamps: Starburst Sayings, Delicate Doilies
Card: Very Vanilla, Pistachio Pudding Core'dinations
Ink: Pistachio Pudding and Crumb Cake stampin' pads, Versamark inkpad
Other: Gold stampin' emboss powder, Starburst framelits, Circles framelits, 1" Circle punch, Basic Pearls, Gold Sequin Trim, Pistachio Pudding stretch ruffle trim, Beautifully Baroque embossing folder, sponge dauber, sticky strip, sanding block
Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team samples - just stunning.  We hope you'll play along with us!


  1. Love this card! Thestarburst in your muted treatment was a surprise, so soft and pretty. Up until now, I could only imagine it as "bold & bright", so thanks so much Christine, for opening my eyes.

  2. Wow, Christine, you did a great job with these colours! I wouldn't know where to start with them! Love the embossed pistachio layer!

  3. Beautiful use of the colours Christine! Your embossed background and big gold sentiment make such a lovely textural feature. xxx

  4. That lovely gold embossed sentiment is in your face fabulous Christine! And I especially love the layered Pistachio ribbon and gold sequins. xxx

  5. This is a gorgeous card - that big gold 'happy' sentiment stands out beautifully x

  6. Love the embossed panel and how you softly incorporated Crumb Cake with the sponged edges. Lovely celebratory card.
