Movie Night

Movie Night

Movie NightI made this card as a DT project at C.R.A.F.T. and forgot to blog it!!  The cute image, Rory’s Movie Snacks, is from Lacy Sunshine,

our generous sponsor :) Since our theme is “Inspired By a Film”, this is a perfect image, as it’s inspired by ALL films!  I colored the image up, using a spotlight technique, then cut it out, fussy cutting the parts that didn’t “fit” in the main shape. For the background, I dove into my neglected/forgotten stash of papers that I’ve got as a freebie from various magazines…this particular piece has got to be 8 or 9 years old!! I added a die cut if a film strip, and a few ticket stubs, then looked high, low, and sideways for the little popcorn embellishment, that I KNEW I HAD somewhere!!!! I felt that the card still needed a little something, so I dove into more forgotten corners, and found film strip Rub Ons!!!!! Then, miracle of miracles, they actually rubbed on!!!! I figured that I better quit while I was ahead, and call this project done !!

Zebras

ZebrasI had the idea for this card the other day, and was really excited to get to it, because it was back to some of my old rubber stamping techniques.  I used an old rubber-stamp of a zebra, I don’t know the brand name, but I got it at Michael’s as part of a set of animals.  I used masking to make a row of them to run across the strip of white card stock.  The sentiment stamp is also an oldie…..it’s by Stampology.  I used a Nellie Snellen circle die to cut it out and to mat it in the turquoise.  I’ve had the animal print Cuttlebug embossing folders for a long time, but haven’t used the zebra (or tiger???) one yet.  It was perfect to use with CoreD’inations Black Magic paper :)  After sanding the embossing to expose the white, I matted everything with turquoise and added a few small brads to the corner.  Loving the CAS design of this card :)
