Cinema Saturday Titanic

Cinema Saturday Titanic
Heart of the Ocean necklace
My inspiration is the necklace and the song in the movie. It was the lore of necklace in the drawing that brought attention back to the Titanic in the beginning of the movie. The connection of it all to her, Rose. It brought her back to tell her story that was hidden for so many years. When she became Rose Dawson she took the chance to die only to really live her way. She knew that she then could go on with her life. Even without her mother!
I loved the song by Celine. When she wore a real replica of the "Heart of the Ocean" (30 carat diamond and Sri Lankan Sapphire necklace by Asprey and Garrard) at the Oscars it took my breath away. It was said Celine's husband bought that necklace for her but then they donated to museum in the UK.

Turquoise Valentine

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger
I was not going to play, but a weeks reprieve from CHA gets in the way so Cath gives us a extended deadline (yippee!) . So then I am looking thru the papers to make another card then I see this paper...It said that is Tuesday Trigger just add some Turquoise hearts! Easy! I know that really was not much to this but if were not for that little trigger I would have just flipped by this in my paper stack. On inside I will stamp "Happy Valentines Day" and send it off for some newly married friends.

No Place Like Home Cinema Saturday

Cinema Saturday Challenge Australia
So you might think "There's No Place Like Home" the Wizard of Oz; well in the Movie she/ they sing Over the Rainbow and many references of home. They show some tiny snippets of the movie in the movie. So my creation is Faraway Downs Farm. The entire movie was the fight over this property and the struggle to keep it running. I made plain because it was plain, dust bowl of love. Hence the choice of muted colors. When they Drover moved in the trees and grass got greener, when they fought the dust flew back in. In the end boy went to home with Grandfather, Lady Ashley and Drover end up together at Faraway Downs. Hopefully Happy Ever After!!

Night at the Museum Cinema Saturday Challenge

Cinema Saturday Challenge
I loved this movie so much fun. His character had to learn to to make history, keep a steady job, get more informed. I used the time clock to represent the after midnight shenanigans at the museum. I found a variety of characters from stamps and placed them in my museum cut from the circut. I stamped and inked the the museum to add depth. My miniature is the key. The sentiment is computer generated.
This was so much fun to make, so not your usual card !!

So Sweet

Moxie Fab Color Challenge
A what a challenge this was! For getting these color straight was a challenge so after some searching on the web then in stores (who cannot always carry all colors) you go for next closest color. I mean even if see on web you still are second guessing at because computer screen are different and such. I mostly relate to Papertrey Ink for my baseline of stuff. Enough for now. After got my paper and colors straighted out and looking at it all long enough all these color will go great with the latest Basic Grey Sugar Rush... so I am all set:) This week was the Nestabilities release party blog hop...I did not win anything but did pickup so good techniques for cutting things out in different ways, hence my card is cut out with the # 8 label die. It came out so nice.
Paper: Bazzill Festive, Pomegranate, and a Light Grape (the store did not have labeled {going out business} it was just above the grape). [This would not photograph more grape like. ugh!]

Cinema Challenge-Narnia

Cinema Saturday is back posting. I am going for it! I must confess this movie was a little much for me so I never finished the movie. I made a wardrobe with the key and heart to enter with love. The inside opens to the cold mysterious outside (OK no lions jumping) just a sentiment of thought (encouragement). I made tree sparkle with some glitter pens and put a glitter edge around the sentiment.
The sentiment reads:
Continuous effort not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential-Winston Churchill
PTI- Chocolate Remix Card stock, White Card stock
Patterned Paper - Websters
Sentiment- Cornish Heritage Farms, Mona Lisa Moments
Heartwarming Village- Key and Handles

Everyday Joy

Scraptastic-Challenge at Capture the Moment Blog
Using up the left over bits. This was all leftover paper from other projects. I really do not have that much leftover PTI (Shocking). Since the colored/ basics card stock is 8.5 X 11 I make a center cut and use that other half for another card or inking up a design. Since the patterned paper went 8X8 I do have lot less leftover. I do have other scrap from doing my scrapbook projects. I do like hearing about how others just never know It may be the answer I am looking for.
This card used Chocolate Remix on Kraft card stock all from PTI. The button is rustic brown and tied Cream Twine from PTI. The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamped in Memento brown Ink. The lamp post is a die cut piece from leftover from the Paris travel set.
Thanks for Looking and leave a Comment I love hearing from you!
