Inspiration Hop, Day 3: Delicate Damask

Good morning! Welcome to our final day fabulous Inspiration Blog Hops this week! As you hop through the team's blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a huge grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops. 
 
Today I have a simple single layer card on Pure Luxury Kraft using my Triple Play Frame with Beth Silaika's Delicate Damask. Delicate Damask is a great basics set for making shabby chic accents and backgrounds.  I used masks I made of the frame stamped on scratch paper and cut out to stamp the different damask patterns into the different frame sections: the largest damask on the right side and the row of damask on the left, both in the Gina K. Dark Chocolate ink, the smaller damask in Gina K. Kraft ink inside the circles, and finally stamping the hearts over them in Dark Chocolate ink.  Aren't those delicate flowered hearts beautiful with the damask images? Then I added one of her greetings to the middle circle and a couple of the small damask accents in between and above the circles like embellishments, aren't those perfect to really bring further emphasis to the round windows and make it extra fancy?  I used the Spectrum Noir BG3 marker to fill in all the borders to make them pop further. Just a few adhesive pearls to accent those little stamped bits. Easy peasy!  Love the vintage look!
