Hello, hello, hello to you my crafty stamper friends! Welcome to our Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of June! This months theme is "Exclusive Bundles". This is where we are to showcase our 'favorite' bundle with a beautiful creation. eeek! I don't think I'll have a problem creating a beautiful masterpiece (if I do say so myself...*giggle*), but to choose our favorite bundle? Now, that's asking an awful lot, don't you think, because I haven't been able to settle on just ONE bundle. Have I already told you just how much I am in love with our new Annual catalog? Yes, that little gem is AHHH-mazing and is filled with sooo many fun and gorgeous products.

I am sooo excited to share my creation featuring the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle. This bundle includes the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and the complimentary Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies. Both of these items can be viewed in my product list illustrated at the bottom of this post. June is a busy birthday month for my family with the next 3 Thursdays landing a family gathering to celebrate. This coming Thursday is our oldest daughter's 24th birthday. waaaahhh I cannot believe that she is nearing her mid-20's! This means that I am getting OLD-er! So, my share is the birthday mini treat bag card that she will receive with a little moolah and a gift card to her favorite restaurant.
- The really cool thing about the new Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper is that you can showcase either the plain Kraft side; or, do like I did and show off the beauty and shimmer of the Berry Burst stripes. I love the sturdiness of this new paper...perfect for making gift boxes, mini treat bag, or a gift card envelope using our framelits and punch boards.
- Our 5/8" Burlap Ribbon sets the tone for a rustic/country setting tied off with the new 5/8" Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.
- So that the Berry Burst "Happy Birthday" Thinlit did not get hidden among the strong colored stripes of the Foil Designer Paper, die cut several of them and stack them using Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. No mess!!!, and makes it super easy to adhere the thin die cuts together.
I am in love with the Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist In Color combination...bold and vibrant, but in this setting with the Delicate Doilies and Crumb Cake Layering Circles Framelit die, the mood is softened. Pop up the Delicate Doilies focal circle using Dimensionals. I. LOVE. DIMENSION! ;)
The card insert is just a layer of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock topped with Whisper White cardstock. The real fun begins with the punched balloon image that has been glued to the top to use as a pull tab. Stinkin' cute, right?!! The image was inked with Berry Burst and stamped onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.
Love how everything coordinates! Ink colors with cardstock...stamped images with punches...and, ribbons to match the color scheme. All of this can be found under one 'roof', per se! LOVE it!.
Don't forget! If you don't have any of the products I used, you'll want to make sure to submit your order through my online store. I hope you will give it a try.
