Gina K Designs December Release Inspiration Hop, Day 2!!

Hey ya'll!! I hope you all have had a very Happy New Year so far! If not, it's still early, give it time, lol! Welcome to our 2nd day of Inspirational hops for you for Gina K Designs!! We have two stamps sets to share some inspiration with you for today...Up first is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Special Occasion Tags. This set will match Spellbinders Ribbon tag trio 2 and 3...although, I stuck Ribbon tags 1 with mine since I dont have those YET..they will be here in a few days though, lol! This is what I did for today:



I am getting an early jump on some graduation cards! I made these two super quick, same layout too, basically. I have several nephews and nieces and great nephews graduating this year, so getting ready! And this set makes it super easy, love that! I created a little pocket inside to insert some money too. I will show that another day though. :D Up next we have the new 'One Free with Three set called You've Got Style...here is what I have done with this set today:



I tried to make the card look like runway lights on the dress, to make it go along with the fun saying, lol! I think this makes a fun kinda encouragement card for a friend!

Ready for more eye candy? Here are the links to my fellow DT, who always rock my socks with their creations!

Wow another black/white fan. The Graduation cards are great and the dotted punch line brings out the saying. I never remembr to use a beige with the black and white but it is an awesome combination. The style dress image is a true show stopped. I love how you blotted the black to really give the dress a nothing waist ( ugh)
