Hello there and welcome back for the Stamp It Group’s blog hop ~ New Catalog Theme!
Today I’m sharing the bright and playful Festive Birthday Product Suite from the new annual catalog. I love all of the images in this stamp set and the Designer Series Paper is fabulous as well. This stamp set and coordinating Framelits can be used for any occasion from a fiesta, Cinco de Mayo, Diez y Seis, or any other celebration. I choose this piece of DSP because it reminded me of a classic Mexican Serape (blanket). I also stamped on a small piece of the same DSP and cut out the blanket and pieced it by adhering to the Crumb Cake Llama. You can save 10% on the Birthday Fiesta Stamp Set and Fiesta Time Framelits when purchased together, like I did!
Since I used Melon Mambo cardstock and ink, so I decided to make my Llama a girl by adding a flower! Adorable, right? Here’s a tip for adhering the small flower, and I mean it is small. Once you die cut the small flower, take either your Bone Folder or the tip of the Paper Snips and carefully fold a Mini Glue Dot in half and half again, while keeping it on the spool. This will give some dimension as well as adhering it where you want it.
I wanted to stamp in the inside of the card and I created a traditional Mexican papel picado. The banner reminds me of the 2012 Leadership conference that I attended in San Antonio, TX!
