Welcome to Day 2 of the SP and Company October Hop!

This month's color is Orange! Join us the 7th through the 10th as we share orange 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 orange 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!!

I have two projects for you today.  One highlights the use of the Awareness is Empowering for a card about Breast Cancer.  The other shows the set used for a different project.  This set is pretty versatile - you can use it for other things besides cancer ribbons!

I used some orange stock I had and brushed a little bit of pink paint onto the background.  I also added glitter to the ribbon using my Xyron (easy-peasy!).

I love the look of pink and orange together, so this one was a no-brainer for me!

For my second project, I created a gift card holder with my Silhouette and Awareness is Empowering.

I figured the "Pamper Yourself" sentiment was the perfect saying for a gift card! So, I cut a pocket and a pull out card.

The gift card sits on the little card that has the gem on it.  It pulls out for access to the gift card.

Make sure you check out the SP Blog and see what Samantha did with the new stamps! Also, Patty has a project 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!!!


  1. I love both of your projects, Chrissie! (And I just adore the mix of dots on the 2nd!)

  2. Great projects...I especially like the gift card holder. Very pretty!

  3. I love pink and orange together! Both cards are fantastic!


  4. I like how the orange makes the pink really stand out. Nice job.

  5. Very pretty, love the color combos! :)

  6. love the fun gift card holder

  7. Hmmm, would never have used dotted paper vertically and horizontally on the same card but this looks terrific. Great gift card holder ~ pamper yourself is the perfect sentiment!

  8. So cute. I love the glitter on your ribbon.

  9. LOVE that sparkle on the ribbon!!!! Bring on the bling.
