Gina K Designs Inspiration Day 3!

It's the final day for GKD's inspiration hops for this release, and today we are sharing projects made with two new duos, Master Butterfly, and Just Calling to Say, and with one full set, Inspirational Blocks.

I love the dramatic contrast of black and white...it seemed just perfect for a tent card with this retro phone!  My grandma had a phone sorta like this!  So funny how one little image can bring back SO many memories!

Notes:
Just Calling to Say...
Gina K Pure Luxury onyx card stock
Vintage Chic paper pack
Memento ink
Spellbinders grommet tags
stitched grosgrain ribbon
black brads


Here's another simple layout using Basic Grey's Marjolaine, Inspirational Blocks and some Pear Tart Memento ink.  For some reason my camera doesn't like the sponged edges...they photo'd rather grainy, but this card is soft and serene IRL.

Notes:
Basic Grey Marjolaine designer paper
satin ribbon

Here are the designers participating in today's hop:

  19. Hi, Deb - what pretty cards! 1st one reminds me of modernism, and the 2nd one makes me feel sort of an old-world charm, probably due to the shading and colors. Love them!
