You may have seen me mention Eric's birthday last week on Facebook.. we celebrated all weekend long and I thought you'd enjoy one of the cards I gave him!! I love this happy Fiesta Birthday card featuring stamps and paper from the Stampin' UP! catalog!


Festive birthday card with stamped cactus from the Birtthday Fiesta stamp set, and Festive Birthday designer paper.

Stampin' Up! featured products from my online store:

  • Festive Birthday Designer Paper, pg 173 #141630
  • Birthday Fiesta stamp set, pg 11, #141500
  • {Googlie eyes from the craft store}


The idea came from my friend Leonie!  I found THIS CARD when I was scouting Pinterest, and loved it!

I stamped the cactus stamp 3 times, and the streamers several times in various colors, then matted it onto Tempting Turquoise and then onto a Crushed Curry folded card that was covered with one of the Festive Birthday designer paper patterns.

I was thinking … where did she find those cute sombreros, guitars and pinata??  Well.. it's pretty clever.. she cut them out of the Festive Birthday paper package on pg 173 !!  whohooo!

See my tip below and be sure to pin it to your stamping tips board!


Use paper snips to cut out cute images for your Festive birthday card with stamped cactus from the Birtthday Fiesta stamp set, and Festive Birthday designer paper.

Did you notice the cute streamers above the mariachi cactus guys??  That stamp is also in the Birthday Fiesta stamp set (pg 11) and since it's photo polymer, you can bend it to create any shape!

The grass is from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.

On the inside of the card I added some strips of paper from the Festive Birthday paper pack and a stamped image from the Badges & Banners set (pg 89) punched out with the matching Best Badge punch (pg 186, #140633).
