Stampin’ Up! Taco Fiesta for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I’m sharing a fun card made with the new Stampin’ Up! Taco Fiesta stamp set. This cute new set from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog is available today! You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a sketch challenge and here is the pretty card sketch we are using this week:

I adhered a panel of Happy Forest Friends designer series paper to a Basic Black mat and adhered it all to the front of a Granny Apple Green card base with liquid glue.

I stamped the cute food from the Stampin’ Up! Taco Fiesta stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. Before stamping, I laid out the stamps on a panel inside the rectangle die so I could figure how to arrange the food items in a tasty way. When I went to stamp the items, I first stamped the larger food items and there was a few larger white spaces, so I filled them in with additional chilis, so my tacos are a bit spicier! I colored the images with Stampin’ Blends – Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Real Red, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral and Petal Pink. I cut the panel with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to Basic Black and Real Red mats before adhering it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Taco Fiesta stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crushed Curry card stock. I cut it out with the smallest long skinny Stitched Rectangle die using the two step method – partially cut one end and move the die before cutting the other end. I adhered the label to the card with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the chips, chilis and lime from the Stampin’ Up! Taco Fiesta stamp set in the corners of a Basic White panel. I colored them the same as the card front with Stampin’ Blends and trimmed the bottom wit a strip of DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Fancy Flora Suite is beautiful and I really love the Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora bundle! The two-step stamping flowers are fun to make and easy to do and they come out beautiful! I love that they all have coordinating dies and the beautiful floral background die is really gorgeus!
