Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. This week’s challenge, #61, is A Knight’s Tale. …
So I remember going to this movie when it came out. Emma wasn’t 2 yet & Malcolm was a newborn. We rarely went out to the movies or out at all, because I was nursing & we never had any spare money for sitters and the activity out.
Long story short: I picked this movie, probably because of Heath Ledger. My DH loathed it. It was his running joke in our home for the next several months that I was not permitted to chose the movie when we went out. I liked the soundtrack. DH liked the soundtrack, but not with the movie. Make sense? As an example, at the two minute mark in this clip is the reason DH couldn’t suspend his belief & enjoy the movie …
Okay so with our little odd family history, here’s my take on the movie.
A coupon … LOL … that’s what I love about this challenge. You can take anything from it: music, colours, themes, emotions, or in our case, memories. :D
Incase you’re wondering, on the flip side, DH has picked movies that I didn’t like. That’s the good thing about your spouse or friends for that matter , they are always giving you second/third/etc chances. (most recently: funny people. Why wouldn’t that movie just end?)
Cute faux leather technique, eh?
You could put in cash, a gift certificate or a homemade gift certificate (always fun to come up with ideas!)
Used: Creamy Caramel SU CS, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Ranger Distressing Ink (Walnut Stain, Vintage Linen), Versa Mark Ink, Clear EP, SU Create a Coupon Stamp Set, Make a Wish Stamp Set, SU Olive EP, Old Olive Ink, Sewing Machine, SU Circle Punch, Cream CS.
Here’s an inspiration courtesy of Beate! Be Inspired Challenge #33 comes from Martha Stewart & her oh so inviting patio. Wouldn’t you love to have something like this in the back yard? I planted grapes this year, but it’ll be quite a few years before the vines take over. I love the candles in the glass votives as a chandelier. Did I mention it’s been snowing (the heavy wet snow) in Ottawa? Maybe that’s why this image seemed so inviting that I had to have a go at it:
Here’s my card. I used a rather forgotten about stamp set in my collection that I once adored called: Fresh Fruits (S.U. retired). I also used my new friend the Ranger Ink Blending Tool, so much cleaner than sponges. Don’t know why I never used it before. It’s a “good thing”. lol
Thanks for the fun, Beate. See you back on the 2nd of January. Man, can I wait that long, I guess I’ll hafta!
I’m off to check out more fun interpretations at SplitCoastStampers BIC33.
Used: Fresh Fruits (S.U. retired), So Saffron CS, Always Artichoke CS, Always Artichoke PP, Ivory CS, Always Artichoke Ink, Old Olive Ink, Summer Sun Ink, Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink, Ranger blending applicator tool (felt pads), Rectangle nestabilities, Antique Copper Brads, Tejas Lace Company Suede Lace, Dimensionals, Scallop Punch.
Thought I’d try out a technique I saw Beate use on SplitCoastStampers called Sparkly Stain Glass. I’m not very good with glitter, always leaving a trail of sparkle & never really seems to stay put. I tried to follow Beate’s tutorial, but still the glitter gives me problems. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s my go at Sparkly Stain Glass.
There are some amazing examples of this technique on SplitCoastStampers, check out Sparkly Stain Glass.
Used: Ornaments Stamp-Unknown, Punch Pals, Wild Wasabi Ink, Versa Fine Ink, Spring Silhouettes DSP, Martha Stewart Glitter, Velvet (Craft) Ribbon, Square Coluzzle, Acetate, Crystal Effects Glue, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals.
Beate posted her Be Inspired Challenge, BIC32. Woo Hoo. That was Tuesday inspiration photo and I was stuck, which is good for a colour challenge inspiration photo, to challenge you. Thanks, Beate for the challenge!
Here’s the photo:
Here’s my card. I went with the glossy C Stock embossed with a cuttle bug folder & then cut using cuttlebug Die Cuts. The Orange CS really is Tango Tangerine, but it looks more red in the photo. ooops.

Saw Beate’s Be Inspired Challenge #29 & couldn’t help but play along. I loved that wicker sleigh bed. We own nothing wicker. I wanted a wicker chair one time & my DH insisted he will break it the first time he sat on it. Probably so, but it looks nice!
Beate chose the Fiona Bedding from Pottery Barn for the inspiration:
The ‘wicker’ look was achieved by kinda’ crocheting 5 strands of raffia & taping underneath. It took me maybe 4 minutes to crochet it. Here’s the card:

There seems to be quite a bit of Christmas paper in Pinks & Purples this year, so this is what I went with for my card.
The Stars are cut with the Sizzix Die Cuts, spaced with Dimensionals & I used some silver Embossing powder with the Peace on Earth S.U. Stamp set. I used Orchid Opulence with “The Christmas Stack” DCWV PP that I bought at Michaels.

Beate’s Weekly Colour Inspiration comes from a canvas of Elise Remender called “Apple Blossoms”. When I googled Remender I found many images of her print, Apple Blossoms. The image below (poorly tweeked & enlarged) comes from AllPosters:
