Hello everyone! Welcome back! This week, I am showcasing my Million Dollar Sales Achievers stamp set, Taco Fiesta. When you reach a million dollars in sales as a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, Stampin’ Up provides the opportunity to design your own stamp set. So, Taco Fiesta is my set! I designed it with the idea of having a set that is FUN and SILLY that you can use for any occasion, any recipient. I also wanted to be able to use my Stampin’ Blends to color the images, so they are all open black line images. Taco Fiesta is in the upcoming 2023 Stampin’ Up Spring Mini Catalog and will be available beginning Thursday, January 5, 2023.
Today I’m going to share with you one of my cards I created for my On Stage Taco Fiesta presentation last November. It’s a really fun interactive card that used the Give It A Whirl Dies.
First, I stamped my cute little taco in Memento Black ink on Basic White Cardstock and colored him with So Saffron and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. For some reason, I gave this guy no tomatoes- not sure why… Feel free to color some of that “lettuce” as tomatoes using a Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blend. And don’t forget to add the little mustache face in memento Black ink. Also, stamp the sombrero and color it with the same colors. Cut both out with Paper Snips.
Next, using the Give It A Whirl Dies, I cut two of the wheels from Basic White Cardstock. I cut the window in one of them to create a template so my peppers are all centered . I placed this one over the other wheel and stamped the pepper in each section with Memento Black ink. I repeated this in each of the three segments of the wheel. I colored the peppers in Sweet Sorbet, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. Of course if you want to add faces to them with Memento Black ink, do that as well!
I cut a base from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock and cut a window in the top of it as well. I attached the stamped wheel behind the case with a tiny brad.
I stamped the tiny pepper all over the base with Sweet Sorbet ink and attached it to a Sweet Sorbet card base with Dimensionals.
I added a strip of DSP (Tea Boutique), a strip of Sweet Sorbet Glimmer Paper and a strip of Parakeet Party Glimmer paper across the bottom half of the card front. I attached the taco and sombrero with Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black on a Basic White stitched banner and added it with Dimensionals as well. Lastly, I added a Sweet Sorbet Baker’s Twine bow with a Mini Glue Dot.
