Piano Pocket

So this is a challenge for this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #92, Napoleon Dynamite.  To be completely honest, I have not seen the movie.  I have seen clips of the movie, where he’s dancing on the stage.  So I guess that’s where I was going with this interpretation … dancing…music…piano?  Bad segway, but there ya go.

My card on the front, probably THE most plain card I have ever made.

Inside, it’s a Piano Pop UP Gift Card Pocket card!  Whew, that was a mouthful.

Gift Card for coffee, baby!

The template is from Extreme Cards!  No special cutters used, just an exacto knife & a ruler.  Straight lines & the template.  I did have some problems (as you can see) with Black Embossing Powder going EVERYWHERE.  What a mess.   I did my best to cover up the mess with brown CS.

You can still see a bit, but it is what it is.

And it POPS UP!  Too much fun!

I did re-drawn Extreme Cards Template again in mirror, so that when I printed it out on the card stock, you wouldn’t see the lines.  (once cut, just flip it over)  Here ya go …

Not Unnoticed

I was checking out this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #91, and the movie was Gandhi.  Ben Kingsley, acting as Gandhi, was completely convincing.   I wasn’t sure what do to with this challenge, so I decided to focus only on the sentiment, to encourage serving & volunteering.

Sometimes the most difficult cards for me to do are the simplest cards, kwim?  I print out this sentiment, then just used a scoring board (my Martha Stewart one, which I find so easy to use), and this is what I came up with.  I think I might use it as an encouragement card for my DD, who has been helping me out with some non-paid chores around the house much more then her younger brothers.  I want her to know it doesn’t go unnoticed.

Trigger Tuesday Halter

Moxie Fab’s Trigger Tuesday Challenge has come up with this Halter Top from Anthropology for a fun challenge this week.

I had some paper from Cosmo Cricket (Hello Sunshine) that reminded me a bit of this fabric, so that’s where I started.

Here’s my go with this trigger challenge:

Groovy Vase

Just having some fun with a Kristina Werner (Reader’s Choice !) Colour Inspiration, #4.  I LOVED the photo that Laura had submitted, what a photographer.  Gorgeous picture of a jelly fish & a fantastic jumping off for a colour inspiration.

The ‘Vase’ is an idea that I first saw from Kim Burmeister that uses, of all things, a Stampin’ Up Christmas ornament punch–just with the bottom point trimmed off.  Clever!  Had to case.

That’s all, thanks for the fun!

The papers:  My Minds Eye:  Just Dreamy Cards, K & Company Berry Sweet, ColorBox:  Friendly Forest.

Punches:  Stampin’ Up!:  Ornament Punch & 3 flower punch

Eggplant Issues

Kristina Werner had a Colour Inspiration this week, Reader’s Choice 3 CI.  I had a few minutes this morning so I put something together quickly & it was a challenge for me.  Eggplant & me don’t see eye to eye.  Anyways, be sure to try it out & give the challenge a go.

Girly Box

Time for a challenge from The Cinema Saturday Creative Folks.  This week, #82 is the 2010 movie of Alice in Wonderland.  I really wanted to make a teapot for this one, but I can’t wrap my head around the template that I have in my brain.  I have a request into a friend who is a template making guru, so I’m hoping she can make it.  IN the mean time, I just made a VERY quick dress favour Box in illustrator & cut out on my small Cricut machine with the help of Sure Cuts a Lot Software.

Nothing fancy, but I think it would be cute for bridal showers or a little girls party.

For now, I just put in a bit of … what else … tea.

Here’s the template, if you want.  2 of my 3 kids think it looks more like a bear or mickey mouse ears, but they’re tough on me at times.  My middle son thought it definitely looked like a dress … Somebody’s getting a raise in their allowance :D

Girl Polish

I really wanted to have some fun with the Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge … using NAIL Polish.  The nail polish I used is my DD’s.  She has started convincing me that there are other polishes besides French Mani’s.

I used some grunge board from Tim Holtz & paper from Cosmo Cricket.  The Sentiment is SU!

Fast Lane

Time for a Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.  This week, #81 is Ferris Bueller’s Day off.

I was playing around with the Cosmo Cricket Get Happy Paper Pack again & some fun in photoshop.  I also tried the imagininsce brad maker, but messed up a bit, but have some grace, it was my first try.

The type is called “Coolvetica” & it was just done up quick in CS3.  Just having some fun with fonts & colours & a line from the movie.
