The Sound of Cinema Challenge

How excited was I? I get to do a card for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! Everyone there is so talented & sweet & well, I LOVE that site for creative brain stretching! I must admit, I thought for a bit, man, I can’t do the “sneak peek” guessing, ah well, next time. CSCC #9 is drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr: The Sound of Music!

Had a lot of fun with textures on these cards. There are some AMAZING papers out there, soft & fuzzy, wonderful. The Cream flourished velvet paper was in a bundle from Michaels (left overs I guess) for $10, and used the 40% off coupon, so really not that much. On the second card, the Brown Velvet Papers (Three 8.5×11’s for $7 I think) were from Heather’s Stamping Haven. The hand made paper almost has a paper towel spongy-ness to it. I think I got that from the dollar store. Great for texture.

Um okay what is it with people making clothes from curtains? First Gone with the Wind/Carol Burnet & now Maria. This card, I thought I would make around those groovy curtain-fabric play clothes that Fräulein Maria made for the Von Trapp children. When I made the card & was asking myself who on earth would I give a card like this to? Then I hand wrote in “Hang in there” on a tag, for a buddy of mine who is going through the rollercoaster of selling her home to buy another. Coat hangers (dollar store) BARGOON!

The second card is my absolute FAVOURITE scene in the movie, that I watched over & over again. Liesl meeting her beau by the gazebo. {sigh} I wanted that dress & it was so sweet:

Here’s the card, I used Super Sticky Tape to gather the ribbon (it glues the ribbon to ribbon nicely) and the handmade paper at the bottom is just cut in angles and then glued on in pieces:
