Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop Day #2...........You've Got Style and Special Occasion Tags!!!




Are you ready for some STYLE???  This cuuuute new stamp set designed by Gina is called You've Got Style and it's the One Free with Three this month!!!!!


For this card I simply stamped the cute hangar image into some homemade dp....I love that technique!!  I chose markers to match the colors of the paper I used.  Pure Luxury White and Just Peachy and dp.  I do love layering my Fancy Tags for sentiments and this little daisy lace is the perfect touch for the pearls! 



And now a fun new stamp set designed by Tami called Special Occasion Tags.......



We have several friends that are adopting some very special children....and I was THRILLED that this newest set includes the perfect sentiment!!!  It was fun to just randomly stamp the various sentiments into a background and highlight the word Adoption.  I used the Spellbinders Oval Nesties. I also used one of my most favorite Pure Luxury colors, Lipstick Red!!!


You'll want to hop through all the amazing Design Team Blogs for some fun and fabulous Inspiration using these 2 newest stamp sets!!!  And remember to comment a lot along the way for a chance to win a Grab Bag of Gina K. Designs stamps!!!  2 winners will be chosen for each day of the hops!!!!

Love both your card! And you're right- it's great to have stamps for those "unusual"events that deserve a card!

I love how you used the little hanger stamp on that first card. I really need to practice more creating all over patterns with my stamps. I usually just think of images like these as focals. Beautiful work!
