Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #66 - Clueless

Good Morning Everyone and welcome to the 66th Cinema Saturday Creative challenge!! We have picked some intense movies lately (or ones where there are alot of teary eyes after watching it) and so we wanted this week's movie pick to be fun and light - so this week's movie challenge is the 1995 movie: Clueless starring Alicia Sliverstone (who won the American Comedy Award for funniest actress for this movie). This movie is loosely based on Jane Austen's novel Emma, set in modern time (you can read more about the comparisons on this site ). Our guest designer for this week Kathy, suggested that for our challenge this week that do a little something with plaid - and when you see the movie - you will see alot of plaid prints in so many different shades - so our challenge requirement is to use a TOUCH of plaid (just a little bit or alot - up to you). There are some fun themes in this movie - and if you are having a hard time getting your creative juices flowing, here is a little inspiration corner with some themes, visual inspiration or color combination choices to help you get started:
Here are some more links for inspiration:
Cast Interviews from Clueless (crazy how they all look so different!)
Movie trailer from the movie Clueless you can see it here or watch it here:

Sankari's Creation Inspired by the Movie: CLueless:
I think one of my most favorite memories from watching this movie was remembering how popular it was to use the phrase "whatever", or "as if.." which kinda came out of this movie :) I always thought that Alicia Sliverstone was just perfect for the role of Cher (which is really the role of Emma from Jane Austen). She has such a sweet heart and I just adored the way that her heart opened and she was able to see the bigger picture. I loved watching this movie again and seeing all of the fashions of '95 and just loved all of Cher's purses and accessories. So my inspiration was to create a gift set for my niece's birthday with a few essential fashion items (some make up, chocolate and lotions :) using the Carolina's purse box template and also made a coordinating card:
And here is the coordinating card:

I had so much fun creating this fun little purse for my niece (who isn't into the "girly" colors, so I had to create something that wasn't too pink - hope she likes this :). And I can't wait to see all of you cinema inspired creations. Please stop by my blog for more details,
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: CLUELESS

So I was totally inspired my Kathy this week . I Just couldn't help my self... I had to do a store front. And I had to make it a totally girlie girl card of course..


This week we are joined by the amazing artistry of Kathy Fronczak, who was our Audrey winner from the movie Titanic with this gorgeous creation. She has created another "wowzer" with this amazing card inspired by Clueless - seriously and uber fabulous:

Kathy's Creation Inspired by the Movie: CLueless:
A big thank you to Brooke and Sankari for the wonderful honor of being a guest designer for this challenge. It was such fun to hang with you gals and play for the past week! I loved rewatching the movie Clueless. It was fun to see what was trends this movie created. I got a real kick at the large cell phones. Of course it is so funny how shallow and "CLUELESS" the main character Cher is. It is fun to watch her struggle with finding what matters in the world. The scene were she gets robbed is hilarious. She was more worried about her designer dress then the fact that she was at gun point.

My design is focused on the character Cher and her LOVE for fashion and shopping. I drew a digital image to look a bit like Cher...paying careful attention to her style in the film. I noticed many outfits with the high socks and close toed heels, so I drew those on her feet with a sprinkle of glitter. I added shopping bags and put a Starbucks cup of coffee in her hand. I noticed several scenes where they were drinking Starbucks, which of course I can relate too...( Single Hazel Nut Latte with low foam and whip, please ). I created a storefront in girly prints and colors so Cher would feel right at home.

I decided to put a little Pup in the just seemed kinda fun and trendy. This is where I used the requirement of "Plaid". I used a fun Plaid print paper for the pups dog bed. I broke out my collection of rhinestones to accent this project with plenty of bling and shine. I also used some Star Dust Stickles to accent her shopping bags and the flowers that I cut out. This card was great fun. It was fun to pull out all the pink and green papers and just keep adding things that sparkle!"

Thank you SO much Kathy for being our wonderful guest designer this week!! Your creation is simply dripping with fabulousness!!! So many lovely details to take in and savor!!!

A big thank you to Brooke and Sankari for the fun challenge! I am so excited to see what you all design around this film. This will be a fun week. I am shocked that the film was guessed. It blows my mind how you gals do that. You guessers must have a "special" power to see into the future!!lol

Sankari, your project is great! Your Niece is a lucky girl..and I LOVE those colors you used, very rich.

Can not wait to see what Brooke has in store!!:)

Erica said...

Great challenge ladies!

Betty J Schaub said...

Love these challenges because I am ALWAYS forced to think outside the box! Hope you like my CLUELESS card.

Tethered2Home said...

Amazing cards, ladies. I'll have some fun with this movie challenge no doubt. In '95 I was in early 20s, graduated university & trying to climb the corporate ladder wearing the short plaid skirt thinking that was "the" look. Oh man ... sigh, fashion looking back sometimes make me cringe at my own choices lol.
