taco tuesday…

01.010.2023…..Happy Tuesday, my stampin’ friends! And since it’s Tuesday, what better day to make a “Taco Tuesday” card! I used two of my favorite new products from the new Stampin’ Up! January – June 2023 Mini Catalog……the Taco Fiesta Stamp Set and the Alphabet A La Mode Dies! Hope this card inspires you to create some cards and projects with the some of the wonderful products from this new mini catalog!

Don’t miss out on the SALE-BRATION!!!

This promotion ends on February 28, 2023…and quantities are limited on these exclusive products!


For this card, I used my Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad to stamp the taco (from the Taco Fiesta Stamp Set) several times on Basic White Thick Cardstock. I also stamped the taco again on another piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock, added a little happy face (also from the Taco Fiesta Stamp Set), and cut it out so that I could pop it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals later. The little sombrero was also stamped with my Tuxedo Black Memento Pad on Basic White Thick Cardstock.

To create the background behind the tacos, I stamped the taco once more on a scrap of cardstock, cut it out so that I could use it as a “mask”. I then covered each taco, one by one, and used a Small Blending Brush to color around the tacos with Balmy Blue.

For the speckling, I used my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. (To create the speckling, I “flicked” the thick end of the marker against the inside edge of the marker cap, and “flicked” outward towards the cardstock.) I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the panel to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base.

To color all of the tacos, I used several of my Stampin’ Blends Marker Combo PacksDaffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, and Poppy Parade. The little sombrero was also stamped with my Tuxedo Black Memento Pad on Basic White Thick Cardstock.To color the little sombrero, I also used some of my Stampin’ Blends Marker Combo PacksBermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, and Highland Heather.

To create the “Tuesday”, I adhered some Basic Black Thick Cardstock to an Adhesive Sheet, then cut out the letters with the Alphabet A La Mode Dies. The “taco” sentiment (from the Taco Fiesta Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Basic White Thick Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

For the bow, I used Black & White Gingham Ribbon (cut in half lengthwise) and Linen Thread. I also popped up the “happy face” taco on top of the ribbon that I wrapped around the cardstock. I also added a couple of Round Brads, in the bottom left corner, for just an extra bit of detail. (To give them a rustic look, I sanded them lightly with a nail buffer.)

Wishing you creativity always,
