Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 2


formyuncleSo glad you’ve joined us for our continued inspiration hops for the Gina K release! Here is a link to What’s New so you can find it all in one place!

First up is Tami’s Special Occasion Tags set. It was designed to work with Spellbinders Ribbon Tags 2 dies but also works well with Oval and Rectangles. It is also interchangeable with All Occasion Tags and Label Borders. I made a card ‘for my uncle’ (ha) since his birthday is on January 9. I don’t recall ever seeing him without a mustache/beard so this fun paper Times & Seasons by Echo Park with the mustaches was perfect for this card! Card base is Little Boy Blue and I used Black Onyx and White Pure Luxury cardstock. The tag was sponged with Antique Linen distress ink and the button is from the blue button jar (which is on sale for only $2.97! what a steal!

Here is a fun & bright card I made using the new You’ve Got Style stamp set you can get for FREE if you purchase 3 stamp sets! I just used one image on this card and chose to put my ‘I Miss Shoe’ sentiment on the inside of my card. I had fun coloring and making the shoes polka dot with my copic multiliner pen! The pattern paper I used on my card is from the StampTV kit True Love.

As you hop through the designer’s blogs, make sure you leave comments on each one for a chance to win a grab bag full of 12 stamps!! We will randomly choose two winners so the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win. Gina K will announce the winners on her blog.

Be sure to check out StampTV each week Monday and Friday we have challenges posted where you can win MORE free stamps!!

Hope you will be back for our last day of inspiration hops tomorrow!
