Hi Friends!

Today’s project is one of my all-time faves! If you immediately assumed it was a shaker card, you’re my people! Because, OF COURSE it is!

Shake, Shake, Shake… Fiesta!

I used the Taco Fiesta stamp set, which is Erica Cerwin‘s 1 Million Dollar Achievement set – and is probably one of my favorites, to date! It’s so fun and so festive! It’s a fiesta in a stamp case!


There are so many layers to this card! My base is Sweet Sorbet and is a 4 1/4″ square card. I layered a piece of Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper between the base and the shaker! My card front is from the Enjoy the Journey DSP pack but looks like chips, right?! I stamped my images and colored them in with Stampin’ Blends. I even stamped the background piece behind the shakey bits – you can see the little peppers and lime slices peeking out!

Sneak Peek

Do you also spy some goodies you haven’t seen yet? The die cut window and shaker bits are from the new online exclusive suite, Irresistible Blooms coming on March 1st! You guys…  it’s AH-mazing! I’m sneaking the Loose Frosted Dots and the Irresistible Blooms dies. You’re going to love this suite!!



I used the Basic White CS that I stamped the peppers and limes on to close up my shaker and before I adhered this whole layer to my card front, I wrapped some Sweet Sorbet bakers’ twine around it twice and tied a bow. I stamped my sentiment onto a label die cut from the Queen Bee dies and then adhered it and all of my colored images to my card. I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere a few of the Loose Frosted Dots to the front also.

If you’re attending my Spring Stamp A Stack this weekend, this is also a peek of one of the cards you’ll be able to make!! I hope you love it as much as I do!
