Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 4 - Grease!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

This week has been so very interesting... just when our daughter was getting better - our son got a sudden high fever and after taking him to the hospital yesterday then waiting to do lab work... we were told that he has strep! The last 2 nights I have been up with him till about 3am - so regardless to say... there was no cardmaking going on... I was able to finish my card for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge this morning, while my DH took care of the kids and breakfast and got our daughter to nap. He has been very sweet about giving me some craft therapy time and so I dedicated this card to him!

The Cinema pick that we choose for this week is the movie GREASE! I was so excited to make a card from this movie and have really enjoyed listening to the songs again and singing along... my husband and I used to karoke to the song "Summer Lovin" and it was fun to get up and sing and entertain the kids with my really bad lip synching abilities... they were kind of speechless (I would like to think it was because I was that good - but I think it was because they just didn't quite know what was suddenly up with mommy :) LOL!

The inspiration for my Cinema Saturday card came from the beginning of the movie where the intro is done cartoon style - it is just so fun and I love the song: "Grease is the Word" by Franki Valli (you can see the intro here) and wanted to make my card kind of cartoonish. I made my card using Taylor's Friday Cupcake challenge #40 and used one of the brand new cupcake stamps that she just released for this card - the reindeer cupcake. I masked the reindeer's face and horns and stamped the image twice and paper pieced the cupcake. I "painted" their hair to be like Sandy and Danny from the movie. 


I was totally cracking up while making these images of  an Olivia Newton John cupcake and a John Travolta cupcake. The car was hand drawn to be like the Grease Lightning car and then embossed with red EP - (very glittery IRL) and then I painted some yellow flames. The wheels were punched out and then buttons were adhered for the hubcaps. The sky was painted and then I added some clouds that I embossed with a bridal EP. The sentiment was written in swing script on the computer and reads: "You're the one that I want!" from the song by the same title towards the end of the movie. 

I had a lot of fun using this stamp (check out Taylor's new set of stamps here) and can't wait to ink up the rest! And also it was so much fun to make a card inspired by the movie Grease for the Cinema Saturday challenge. And one of the best parts was to make a card for my DH, who also loves this movie (or specifically Olivia Newton John ;). I still have all the songs going through my head and have been humming them doing the dishes, the laundry, the cooking etc. - makes everything more fun :) 

I hope you have a chance to try out the movie inspiration for this week over at our Cinema Saturday blog (every week we pick a movie from which to draw inspiration - it can be from the dialogue, the characters, the costumes, the movie jacket, anything really - and you can create anything from this movie: card, layout, altered project, etc!).  

Thanks so much for coming over for a visit!
Hope all of you are happy and healthy!!
Best wishes,
Sankari :)

What a great idea to use a cupcake! You caught the cartoon style perfectly.
I hope your son gets better soon - some antibiotics should be able to help him (and his surely tired Mom) rather quickly...
I'm thinking of you!
Sending a big hug,
Christiane

Cute cute cute!!! Such a fun and as always unique card!

Oh wow, my parents finally left this afternoon. I have my craft room back! It was nice to just be able to sit there :) Now I'll be able to keep up with my blog buddies' creations too! I know I haven't visited here (and many others) in a while.

Hope your son gets better!!! I hope you get lots of rest too. It's always tough when this happens. I am soooo glad M's a healthy girl but when she does get sick, man, she takes the whole house down!

Cute, cute card. I love that you used cupcakes. I hope your son feels better soon. My baby has had an upset tummy for several days now and I can sympathize. When one of my kids gets sick there is usually at least two more sick.
