Gina K December release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs December Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the sets, Special Occasion Tags illustrated by Tami Mayberry and You've Got Style which is the One Free with 3 set!

First up is my card using Special Occasion Tags.  This set has 5 cute labels and tons of sentiments/words to go along with just about any occasion.  I also love how you can change the appearance of the label stamp by die cutting them into different shapes.  I added a strip of 1/8" scor-tape across the bottom and added glitter to it for some extra sparkle.
Next, is my card using You've Got Style.  This stamp set is free when you buy 3 or more stamp sets at the store.  It's totally cute and very girlie.  I paper pieced the dress form and added rhinestones to the waist.  Don't we all wish our waists were that thin? 
For even more samples of these new sets, you can visit each of the GKD Design Team blogs listed below.  Make sure you leave a comment here and on each of their blogs because Gina is going to draw two randomly chosen winners from all of the blog comments, and each will receive a fabulous grab bag of stamps!  Gina will announce the winners on her blog tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!  I'll leave you with some close up pictures.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for the last day of inspiration.

  11. The TAGS Baby card is adorable. THe colors are a sure hit and using the tag with a different style layer is a terrific idea. The Round STYLE card is terrific I was ready to see it on a hoop for hanging. I like that the ribbon is extended and of course, like you, forget the waist on the dress.
