Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 2 - Special Occasion Tags and You've Got Style

Hello and Happy New Year! Today the Gina K Design Team are featuring two more new release stamp sets. First up is You've Got Style, the new Free With Three stamp set. I love the trendy, whimsical images in this set! I stamped the dress form on a piece designer paper from the new StampTV kit and used Copic markers to add a bit of shading. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx, Passionate Pink and another piece of DP from the StampTV kit. The card base is Bubblegum Pink.

Next is a great set, from Tami Mayberry, called All Occasion Tags. These gorgeous tag images coordinate with Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 2 and 3 die sets. This particular image also works perfectly with Spellbinders Oval dies, which I used to cut a piece of Pure Luxury gold card stock to layer with. The tag image was embossed with gold embossing powder. I also layered with Pure Luxury Ivory and used Spellbinders scallop square and square Fluer De Lis dies.
