If she's biting when she plays, you have to say "NO, bad girl, no bite" and refuse to play with her.  If she licks you, say "Yes, lick is good girl" and continue to play.  Keep this up until she realizes that biting means no more play, she'll catch on.

She's likely getting in her adult teeth, so like a human infant cutting teeth, she's chewing on things.  Make sure she has lots of good items to chew, rubbery items for exercising her jaws as well as sturdy stuffed animals with all the eyes and etc. removed.
