Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #96 - Ironman

Welcome to our 96th Challenge, where this week we are featuring the 2 time Oscar nominated 2008 movie: IronMan starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges, and Terence Howard. This movie is based on the Marvel Comic books character Ironman and is about a wealthy industrialist who builds a powerful "ironman" suit and becomes powerful superhero. This movie was hugely successful after its release and Downey was praised for his acting and his role as a superhero, which prompted the release of Ironman 2. For this challenge we thought it would be fun for the challenge to be to use something with Metal in your creations (a little bit of metal or alot of metal: this can be from sheets of aluminum, brads, bling, eyelets, metallic paper or ribbon etc.) Our guest designer this week is Jenny Peterson (Audrey winner from the Sleepy Hollow Cinema Challenge, with this gorgeous card). We can't wait for you to play along with us - here are our cards inspired by IronMan:

Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: Iron Man
I think my favorite part of the Iron Man series is watching the chemistry between Tony and Pepper... Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow or defiantly two of my favorites.. Robert can totally pull off the arrogant wealthy social-light and Gwyneth is so good at playing a strong but elegant women.
The little robot reminds me of Tony Stark's soft side.. He is forever taking Pepper Potts for granted and has to ask for her forgiveness. The 3 hearts are Tony and Peppers of course. The little metallic heart is Tony's Iron Man heart.. Pepper is always trying to keep all of Tony's hearts in check.. The color scheme is Iron Man inspired of course.. All the Silver reminds me of the FIRST Iron Man attempt..

I was "NUTS" about it.


Sankari's Card inspired by the movie: Iron Man
I remember watching this movie and thinking that Robert Downey Jr. totally rocked the role of this Marvel comic book character Ironman - he was so good at the "dry" humor and more than anything, it was good to see him comeback from all the hard things he has gone through in his life. In creating this card, I thought I would make something inspired by Pepper Potts and IronMan - that they both say how they other is "all they have" - and so I thought I would make a little love card inspired by the "heart ring" that he has to wear in his heart. This is what it looks like:
and so I created my card inspired by that design and in the center of the heart I put a little flower inspired by the flowering love between Potts and Tony. The sentiment reads: "It's always been you":

The center of the flower has metal and both the black and gray are metallic sheets. It was fun to create a love card inspired by the movie. Can't wait to see what you create!!

Cinema Saturday Guest Designer Jenny:
Well, this was a hard challenge for me!!!! I am an Iron Man fan, but to make a card using an action film as inspiration..tough! I decided to go with a bit of a love story twist! I thought there was major chemistry between Tony Stark and his assistant, Pepper Potts, so I made a card that I might give to my sweetie ;)
The metal id
ea was fun to base the card design around. I used tinfoil over CS and ran it through my bigshot using a diamond plate embossing folder. I used tons of brads , eyelets and metal stickers along with rhinestones and gold glitter and stickles. The sentiment is supposed to look like dog tags (army influence in the movie). I had initially made the card using more of a burgundy shimmer CS (more the ironman red), but it wasn't working for me, so I went with a brighter red. The robot couple obviously symbolize the robotics in the movie. Well I guess thats about it!!

Thank you so much Jenny for playing along with us this week as our guest designer - please check out her gorgeous creations on her blog and check out all the details for this super awesome creation that she made today!!!
