One More Birthday Fiesta Idea……But This One’s a “Fiesta” Fiesta

I absolutely love this Birthday Fiesta stamp set and I’ll be working on more fun cards as the weeks go by.  I had to try Los Tres Amigos though before putting the set in my cupboard.  After all, there are more new (and returning) stamp sets to play with!


I chose my colors based on those used in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.  Those silly llamas kept saying Los Tres Amigos to me so I had to figure a way to get all three of them on one small card front.    I also wanted them to be different colors so two are Crumb Cake card stock, one stamped with Crumb Cake classic ink and the other stamped with Soft Suede; the third amigo was stamped with Vanilla Craft Ink (retired) and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals under the flag banner, the Soft Suede llama and the greeting.  The greeting was die cut using the banner from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  I used my Paper Trimmer to remove about 1/8″ from each long edge of the banner so it would better fit on my card.

STAMPIN' TRIMMER - FIESTAI placed the bottom of the banner almost on the edge of the cutting trough and carefully removed excess card stock.


The festive olé sombreros were cut from a piece of the Festive Birthday DSP.  Here’s my first incarnation of the card without the sombreros:

2 Birthday Fiesta cards, no sombreros
Hmmmm. Cute but zero points.  Something was missing.


but………….Fiesta x2 cards with sombreros. Much better!

Now it’s time to stop the fiestas and move on to some other fun ideas. I really did have a good time with the llamas, sombreros, banner and fiesta-making though. Try it out.
