SSINK Blog Hop - My Favorite Bundle

Are you ready to hop with the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration gals? We're excited to bring you some fun inspiration using some of our favorite bundles from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog. Did you know that Stampin' Up! offers a 15% discount if you purchase select products together? Don't miss those as you are browsing the catalog! We'll be showing you some of the bundles that we just can't live without it!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 7 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Kim at Stamping with Kim. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

I have a lot of favorite bundles, but if I had to choose just one to show you today it would be the Flower Patch Stamp Set & coordinating Flower Fair Framelits Dies. This bundle has SO MANY stamps and Framelits to play with!


This is a picture I took of the actual page in the catalog. As you look through the catalog you will see little boxes that say "Bundle and Save 15%" randomly dispersed throughout the catalog. There are quite a few different bundles of assorted products...you just have to be sure you have your eyes open wide to not miss them!


As you might notice, today's card is inspired by the sample as seen in the catalog, as well as online showcasing the bundle. I liked the placement of the three flowers and the leaves behind them, so I took that layout and ran with it. I did make it my own by adding some extra accents and using different colors. I needed a specific sentiment that wasn't in the stamp set, but all of the flowers and leaves you see on the card are in the set! This set is also perfect for two-step stamping and has many opportunities for lots of different looks!

My color scheme (Mint Macaron, Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry, and Pink Pirouette) came from a combination I found on Pinterest. (Quick Tip: When looking for some color combo inspiration...head to Pinterest and type in the color you like with the words "color combo" and "Stampin' Up!" You will definitely have many combinations to choose from!) I added a little bit of Blackberry Bliss and Rose Red for the inside of two of the flowers.


Aren't those pearls so pretty as accents for the middle of the flower? This up-close picture also shows you the dimension of the flowers as I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop them up from the paper. I love adding Dimensionals as a simple way to make a card POP!


I also wanted to add a little sparkle to my card, so I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to add some background and then using the 2-Way Glue Pen I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. It gives it just the right kind of glimmer I was looking for without adding too much!
