Birthday Fiesta Fun

When I received my new catalog one of the first sets I was anxious to get my hands on was the Birthday Fiesta set.

 I designed 5 projects for my June Inspiration Night using this fun suite of products.

 Let's take a closer look.

The Festive Designer Series Paper is so bright and colorful.   I feature it on each of the 5 projects I designed, including this simple birthday card with super fun greeting.  I colored two of the rhinestones with a red sharpie pen to add even more color.

The next project is one of my favorites to create.  It is a card in a bag.  You stamp a postcard and tuck it into one of our new glassine bags, fold the top of the bag, secure with a ribbon and you instantly have a creative way to package a card.

The inside of the card is made by creating a simple one sided postcard and tucking it inside the bag.

 Isn't this Llama stamp fun?   There is plenty of space to write a message and even attach a gift card to the back if you so desire.

The next card is a white note card with a Happy Cactus featured on the front.

The face was drawn on with a Project Life journaling pen and goes perfectly with this sentiment from our new Badges and Banners stamp set and was punched out with our new Best Badge Punch.  

The next project was a clear tiny treat box.  I filled it with candy and added a belly band of Festive DSP.  The flower was created by punching 3 pansy flowers and piercing all three in the center with a piercing tool.  I added a mini brad to hold them together and then scrunched the inside flowers together after spraying them with water.

When the wet scrunched card stock dries it will resemble actual flower petals.  The leaves were made with our new Blossom Builder Punch.

I always save my favorite project for last.  This little punch art Mariachi Man was created using some of our newest punches and framelits.  The mustache and tie were punched using our new Fox Builder punch.  The hat was made with our new Layering Oval Framelets.  The 1 3/8 circle punch created by body and face and the eyes were drawn on with a Project Life Pen.

The word "AMIGO" was stamped using our new Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  This set comes with 101 photopolymer letters that make it easy to create custom sentiments.

This project is a folded glassine bag.  I cut off the edge of the bag and folded it to create a simple gift card holder.

The inside of the bag has an area stamped with another image from the Badges and Banners stamp set.  It is here that you would write your message and then the Emerald Envy card stock tucked inside the open part of the bag is where you would attach a gift card.

I really enjoyed designing these fun Festive projects.  It was fun to share them with my downline at our monthly Inspiration Night and hear their positive response.  

I hope these projects inspire you to plan a Fiesta or at least create some Fun projects with this Fabulous Festive Birthday Suite.  

Until next time, Adios Amigos!
