Here’s a Quick Way to Create For a Fiesta!

Create For a Fiesta

It’s true that Cinco de Mayo festivities have passed, but it’s not the only day we can have a FIESTA!


In fact, I love a good party so I don’t really need an excuse to have one.  There is always one thing that can get me to make up a party and thats beautiful paper.


Every year when I open the new Stampin’ Up! catalog I look at the designer paper and dream about the parties I can have and the ideas of creativity flow depending on the paper that I’m looking at.


I should also add that sometimes the fiesta’s I dream about don’t come to life, but in my head and with paper they do.


Instant Party in My Brain

One look at the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and I was hooked.  Instant fiesta planning went into hyperdrive and I wanted to throw a big ole’ FIESTA.

Fiesta, Stampin' Up!

Make no mistake the party favors I was thinking about were off the charts.

I had to calm myself and speak reality to my big ears- Quick and Simple Kimberly.

Today I have a fun party favor idea for your own Fiesta, and of course you will want to thank your guests for coming to the BIG fiesta.  I have a quick thank you note to share too.

Quick and simple party favors can be created using Stampin’ Up! Kraft 12 x 12 cardstock.

The Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper creates a colorful favor with a few added embellishments.  The treat holder is sealed at the top with a Golden Binder Clip and Whisper White Mini Pom Pom Trim.  This trim screams PARTY.

The inside of the Fiesta favor features Stampin’ Up!’s Gusseted Cellophane Bags filled with festive candies I found at a local candy shop.  The candy’s are just as bright and fun as the outside of the party favor.


Don’t Forget a Thank You!

I kept my thank you very simple using the Birthday Fiesta Photopolymer Bundle from Stampin’ Up!

While simple it is, it’s elegant and packs a punch with the bold colors.  A thank you greeting was stamped using the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.

Let’s Create

Thoughtful Branches, Stampin' Up!,


Today I wanted to share two samples that were simple enough yet elegant.  The greetings in this set are elegant with the beautiful fonts making projects elegant.

I started this card with a fun color combination of Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and dash of Gold.  The hint of Gold on this card was perfect for keeping it elegant and classy.

Quick Creating Tips 

  • Stamp 7 leaves using Mint Macaron ink and 2 leaves using Bermuda Bay ink onto Whisper White cardstock (4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ and die cut using the coordinating framelits.
  • Attach the Mint Macaron leaves using a Mini Glue Dot.  By adhering the leaves with a Mini Glue Dot the leaves have slight dimension on the Whisper White.
  • Attach a strip of Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper (1/2″ x 3-3/4″) over the Mint Macaron leaves.  Attach a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (1/2″ x 4″) over the Designer Series Paper using dimensionals. Attach the two remaining leaves to the Bermuda Bay cardstock using a Mini Glue Dot.
  • Attach a 1/4 piece of a Delicate White Doily, Lace Trim, and a piece of Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon with a piece of Linen Thread wrapped a few times between the layers.  Keep in place using a Handheld Stapler.
  • Stamp the greeting using Basic Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock scrap and die cut using the Tags & Labels Framelits.  Adhere next to the ribbon layers using a dimensional.
  • Attach gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to card front and attach the Whisper White cardstock to the Whisper White Thick cardstock base.  Enjoy!
