Happy Thursday everybody! And I start off with an apology – I have seen all your incredible entries…but haven’t been able to leave my comments before the challenge closed. I am so sorry – was traveling over a 3 day weekend and then there’s my “day” job that has had me working night and day….again, my sincerest apology.
But I did get two cards made this evening for this week’s challenge and
this week the challenge is to Use a Tag Die as a Decorative Element …and the “twist” is to use the FIRST Gina K Stamp set you purchased (or as close as possible to your first…just in case you have sooooooo many you don’t remember your first! LOL)
BUT If you dont have any GKD stamps, then just use one of your oldest stamps (-:
I did two cards to help get the mojo flowing on using the tags.
My “twist” card is from the set “Framed Friends” by Asela Hopkins! Loved this owl and the sentiments – went crazy over this one and the Gina K addiction began….big smile!
Used GKD’s Green Apple and Lemon Drop, Basic Grey’s Origins, GKD ribbon and Copics E57, 59, Y02, 26, C1 and 2. Mini pearls were colored with G67.
Had to do the “peacock” – cut my tags in half and hooked them over the edge of the border and then matted the bottom tag with the GKD Turquoise Sea base cardstock, dp is stash (you know I love that! and scallop mat is GKD's All Spruced Up. Colored with Copics G00, G21, B18 and gold pen.
Ok, now TAG ! you’re it!
Have fun with this challenge – looking forward to seeing how creative you get with tags and what YOUR FIRST set was… ahhhhhhh the Doc asks...so vot vas your virst taste of the GKD addiction?

Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag stvblastlp8. You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, then your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.
You have until next Wednesday, July 28th, at 8pm CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!

I don't have one yet! I keep hoping I'll win one, but no luck so far. I do have my eye on several, though.
