For this week's Just Add Ink challenge, Patrice has come up with this awesome colour combination  to use on our papercraft projects:

I very seldom use So Saffron, but really enjoyed playing with this colour combo.  I have been dying to use my new Back to Black Designer Series Paper, so that was my "jumping off point" for my card.  I've stamped the Woodgrain background stamp on both the Hexagon Hive die cut panel, and the Deco Label on which the sentiment is mounted.  Here's my card for this week's challenge:
Stamps: Woodgrain, Petite Petals, Chalk Talk
Card: Smoky Slate, So Saffron, Whisper White
DSP: Back to Black Designer Series Paper
Ink: Smoky Slate and So Saffron stampin' pads, Tuxedo Black Memento inkpad, Basic Black craft ink (retired)
Other: Clear stampin' emboss powder, Hexagon Hive thinlits die, Deco Labels framelits, XL Oval punch, Smoky Slate chevron ribbon, Petite Petals punch, sponge daubers, Scallop Edge Border punch, Neutrals and Subtles Candy Dots, stampin' dimensionals
Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's beautiful samples over at Just Add Ink.  Why not play along with us this week?  We'd love to see how you use these colours together!


  1. So striking Christine! Your dsp hexagons are really lovely. xxx

  2. I absolutely love the effect of the black DSP peeping through the hexagon die cut Christine! Wow was my first

  3. Cleaver use of the Woodgrain stamp and I like the Black on Black DSP choice. I'm not a big fan of Hexagons, but you've made me think twice about that with your great card. TFS

  4. Beautiful hexagons, beautiful card! Love the pops of So Saffron. xox

  5. I love how you've softened up the hexagons with flowers - perfect!!

  6. So pretty Christine - love how you've used this hexagon die and showcased the pretty DSP behind it.

  7. What an impressive and striking card Christine, yet so feminine and pretty. I love the hexagons and flowers. Lou xo

  8. Such a gorgeous card, Christine! One of my favs of yours. The dsp behind the hexigon is such a clever idea and the bold black and white is nicely contrasted against the soft Smoky Slate hexagon overlay. A really special creation!
