Using NEW Birthday Fiesta Stamps and Dies by Stampin' Up! With A FREE Mini Sombrero Tutorial!

Hello there,
So, have you ordered yet from the NEW Catalogue?? My first order arrived yesterday and despite having been up extremely early yesterday morning, I just had to have  play last night! And the first set I chose was the Birthday Fiesta. I love, love, love this set!! And it comes with matching framelits too, bonus :-)))) 
Here's my first make (I bumped the post that I was going to do today to show this instead, I was sooo excited to share!). I stamped and die cut this cute little cactus and showed my hubby, he suggested giving it a sombrero hat and eyes and this is the end result...
 These googly eyes are from a few years back, SU! carried them for halloween, they are perfect don't you think?
 So, heres how to make that cute little Sombrero.
Die cut from Sahara Sand card a mini triangle and a strip of the bunting, both dies in the matching set. Then trim the top from the triangle. Glue together and stamp using markers and the little scalloped bunting stamp in the set.
TIP: I found making it perfectly round at the top tricky, with it being so small, so I used my nail file to round it out after cutting!
The colours used were Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Real Red
 The popped up cactus.
Remember, you can choose two FREE stamp sets (of any value) when you join SU! in June ;-)
 And one last pic today!
So, what do you think? Do let me know in the comments :-)

  6. Oh my, I LOVE him. I'd seen this set and liked it but it was low down on my list, now it's right up there. Just looking at this fun little guy I can hear fiesta music and I just want to dance. Thank you so much Sarah-Jane for putting a smile on my face.

  10. This is fantastic - I only just realised you created the hat yourself, must try that - thanks! (I was sulking because there was no hat stamp with the set). And, thanks to your card, I have just ordered 200 goggly eyes from eBay! ;)
