Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #34 "Oceans 11"

Welcome Everyone to our 34th Cinema Card Creative Challenge, where today we are totally excited to feature the movie Oceans 11 :) This movie was originally made in 1960 with 5 of the famous Rat Pack  (including: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford - what a crew! This same concept was redone in 2001 with the whole new Rat Pack - including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, the late Bernie Mac and Julia Roberts. Since its release in 2001 , the remake has done amazingly well and has gone onto create 2 more sequels - each charming, witty and brilliant. If you haven't seen these movies yet - we are sure you will find them clever and entertaining.

The requirement this week is to use brads 
in your creations (brads for Brad Pitt (lol!).

This week we have 2 wonderful Guest Designers Nellie and Robin- who were our Audrey winners from last week for their beautiful creations (Nellie's creation, Robin's creation) from the movie  Twilight (our 32nd challenge) creations!Thank you so much ladies for being our guest designers - your creations are simply Vegas style beautiful!

Brooke's Card Inspired by the Movie: Oceans 11

This movie is one of my DH's favorite's he looks forward to the new "Oceans" coming out each time.. I have to say I really enjoy them as well... There are a lot of pretty faces to look at in the "Oceans" movies... Another fact I learned while reading up on this movie... It's a re-make... Hello... What planet do I live on... Not sure how that slipped past me...  It is a "Rat Pack" movie.. I am SO going to get my hands on this flick... Here is a link to the original info on I.M.B.D.
What a COOL cast... 


Sankari's Card Inspired by the Movie: Oceans 11
Ever since I first saw this movie (the 2001 version) - I was totally charmed by the Clooney-Pitt duo and the was totally loving what director Steven Soderbergh did with this all-star cast - seriously LOVED the the dynamics between all the characters and the music and the quick witty lines and the uber coolness of it all :)
I went with the charm aspect and how Julia Robert's character is George Clooney's missing link - and that in the end he wasn't just pulling the heist of the century for the sake of the money but also for love - hence the sentiment: You are my Lucky Charm...  

You can check out the card details on my blog
HOpe you all have a chance to play along this week!
Hugs to all,
Sankari :)

Nellie's Card Inspired by the Movie: Oceans 11

Thanks to Sankari and Brooke for selecting my Twilight book for the Audrey, I am completely honored to be a guest designer again this week!! Oceans 11....soooo much eye candy....I LOVE this movie! George Clooney is my favorite. He is soooo sexy. For this card, I decided to find a Las Vegas sign template online. It was really easy, I was able to change the text to make it match my card. (Check out my other card using different text over at my blog) After changing the text, saving image and printing it onto vellum, I just cut it out, and added the brads (he he, BRAD Pitt)....I used some fantastic Hambly clear overlays to give it the 'Vegas' swanky casino look and I used a shimmery gold Hambly screenprint as the base. This was a fun card to make. OOh, and I added some liquid glass for the 'lights' and then sprinkled some glitter! Yay! i [heart] glitter. Enjoy!

Robin's Card Inspired by the Movie: Oceans 11

My inspiration for this card was pulled from many things. First, the suit is similar to what a lot of the Danny’s team wore, the buttons are brads (ala Brad Pitt), the poker chips and cards are from the casino and ‘good luck’ can work towards the gambling and the heist in the movie. Also, the two aces represent eleven.

You can check out more details of Robin's beautiful suited up card on her blog: HERE

Last week's movie was the romantic fantasy Cinderella inspired movie: EVERAFTER. We adored all of your beautiful and elegant entries - and also how you came to your inspiration for your creation. Thank you so much to each of you who participated - there are so many new faces and so many familiar faces :) A big welcome to all of our new players and a big hello to all our returning players :). Here is a little collage of all the beautiful flourished entries - 

 One creation that caught our eye was Elana's beautiful card inspired by Drew Barrymore's dress. The colors, the sentiment were just so perfect and golden flourishes were a beautiful touch! Elana, we hope that you will display your Audrey on the sidebar and that can join us next week as our Guest Designer! 

Don't forget that if you play along with us for creating a creation for this movie 
(Ocean's 11) - that you can be entered to be a guest designer 
for next week's challenge:

So are you ready to play along!!?!!!

We sure hope you join us this week! All you have to do is to make a card or layout or altered project that is inspired by the movie: Oceans 11. The inspiration for your creations can be from the music, the characters, the dialogue, the costumes, etc. This week's requirement is to add some brads to your card (a little or alot) to your card.

All you have to do is to link your creation to our blog by commenting on this post with a link to your direct post with your creation. You can add the direct link of your 
blog post to Mr. Linky - not your whole blog - because it makes finding your card int he future much easier. Kristina Werner has created a wonderful video showing how to do this.

Brooke, Sankari, Nellie and Robin, your cards are just fabulous! Great movie for an inspiration! I was in front of the Bellagio a month ago so I had to do a layout!

Laura E. said...

I actually made a card this week after wanting to play along for about 6 months! I'm trying to get SCS to approve my photo upload so I can link to it. Sorry, I don't have a blog. I made it and uploaded it, then realized I didn't use any brads, so I'm trying to upload my new photo! I hope to get it up by 9PST...

Laura E. said...

Yay! I got it to upload. Finally, I played along with your challenge! I'm so excited.

Carol Dunstan said...

pretty bummed I didn't get a chance to make a card for this, I thought it'd be perfect for my brother's birthday in a few weeks. Maybe I'll get something done tomorrow, we'll have to wait and see, I've just caught up on a whole bunch of stuff and want to plan forward a bit so I shouldn't have to do catch up again any time soon!

This is my first Cinema Saturday Challenge. The movie "Oceans 11" takes place in my hometown, so it was a must to take part. My card is a tribute to the original movie, black and white, with a touch of "Brads." Thanks for the challenge.
