SP and Company PINK POWER!

This month's color is Pink! Join us the 7th through the 10th as we share pink projects using brand new SP and Company stamps that will be released on the 10th. Not only does the Design Team get to play with this color, but YOU do too! After you're done hopping around today, make sure you play along with this month's pink challenge (click here for details) for a chance to win some awesome SP and Company prizes! And don't forget that the random prize patrol is watching so leave a comment on every blog each day to be eligible for the prizes!!

Today I have a sweet card for you that features a new background stamp from SP called Dainty Flourish Background.  It will be released on September 10 at the SP and Company store.  This is really a verstaile stamp.  Today I am showing it's 'dainty-ness,' but tomorrow I will show you how you can use it during the holidays, too!

The Dainty Flourish stamp lines up really easily to cover a large area.  See where I used in on the side of the card? This card's front is cut smaller than the back so the flourish is technically on the inside of the card.  I also used it on the vellum at the top.  I love how soft and muted it looks on the pink vellum.

For the flowers, I heat embossed them and then used a q-tip to add white ink to the centers.  Then I added some darker pink around the edges.  I traced around each flower with a Copic to give them a little depth.

Finally, I used another sentiments from Bold Sentiments I and I stamped it in black so I would show up over the muted flourish on the vellum.

Make sure you check out the SP Blog and see what Samantha did with the new stamps! Also, Emily and Patty have projects for you today, so stop by her blog and check out what she has been up to.  Pop back in here on the 10th for the entire SP and Company Design Team Blog Hop!!!
