Hello everybody! It’s time for Facebook Friday! I hope you can join me for an hour of distraction and fun stamping!
This week’s Facebook Friday projects feature the Birthday Jubilee bundle! I love this set! It really reminds me of the Fiesta spring event we have here in San Antonio. Couldn’t we all use a big festive party right about now?
In case you’ve never joined me for Facebook Live, I go live every week, (typically on Friday at 2:00 CST) on my Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group page with three projects. Everyone is welcome to join!
If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards.
I was very inspired to use this set because it reminds me of the “paper picado” that are strung across the streets downtown here in San Antonio. These are a Mexical folk art and are usually cut from brightly colored tissue paper. Below, you can see a picture of Market Square, here in my home town.
Aren’t they fun!? I’ve lived in San Antonio for 35 years (almost my whole life) and, to me, these are a symbol of the beautiful culture here. I love them!
My first project is a card I CASED from my friend Cyndi Schuster. She created hers in soft, subtle colors, so I decided to take a bright, bold approach, just like I see downtown. My colors are Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch. Clean Recording Can Be Found Here.
Next up, I’m sticking with the southwestern flair! I created a punch art cactus! What do you think? Does it look like a cactus? It’s layered over a Melon Mambo set of the “paper picador.”
