SOS #189: The Big Screen

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week's title is The Big Screen, and we're to make a project based on or inspired by a movie.

I totally cheated, and used the same image and sentiment I used for a former movie-inspired card. If you go look at that card, you'll see how much my style has morphed in the past 4.5 years.

Anyway, here's my card, then I'll explain:

Can you guess the movie? Why, it's Pride & Prejudice (with the hawt Colin Firth, of course). One thing that hasn't changed is the sound of screeching when Mrs Bennett speaks. Poor, poor Mr Bennett, and poor, suffering Lizzy.

Here's a nice compilation of the whining:

I have this movie on CD/DVD/whatever, and listen to it on road trips. I need to stop at rest stops to clear my head from the screeching.

I feel good about this card, since I'm not sure I've even used that stamp and sentiment since I made the last card, so both totally qualify as stash. And that doily is from a pack of 50 I got centuries ago. I don't think I'll ever use them all.

I colored her dress in grey markers, and the flower got a pop of yellow, which dictated which piece of remnant card stock I pulled from the pile next to my paper cutter.

I followed the current CAS(E) This Sketch! sketch:

And because it's still open, I'm going to also enter this card in the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge:

So, do you have a favorite movie? I think you should come play along with us this week. And make sure to check out all the great movie-inspired cards my fellow teammates made over on the SOS blog!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: Lady image from River City Rubber Works, sentiment from who-knows-where -- it's unmounted, remnant of yellow card stock from the pile next to my trimmer, doily from who-knows-where pack of 50, memento black ink, Copics (Y13, T1, T2, 0, E000, E71), 1/8" corner chomper, foam tape.


  1. Fabulous job with the challenge, great use of the doily in the sketch. I don't think I know this movie but I will look for it on the old movie channel.

  2. Yes, this movie is a favorite of mine. I do find Mrs Bennet to be very vexing! Great image and sentiment. Poor Lizzie with her mother and sisters!

  3. yes, that is still totally my FAVE version of p&p, it might be unbeatable actually b/c YEAH colin firth!!!!!!! :) i love BOTH versions of your card, it's sooooooo cool to see both of them and realize how much your style has changed!

    ps: i've seen some v cool cards on pinterest where you watercolor THROUGH a doily to get the cool lacy pattern but it looks fresh and modern... just sayin'... since you have so many EXTRA ones... :)

  4. Oh, this totally makes me laugh! I love it! Fabulous take on the sketch!

  5. Fab take on the sketch! Would you believe I have never read Pride and Prejudice??? **hangs head in shame** I have loaded it up on my ereader for our trip to Florida next month!
    I love the pretty CAS elegance of your card and of course the doily :D

  6. Now I am back wearing my SoSS hat...ok, true, it's not much of a disguise...
    Thanks coming back again to join the Sisterhood of Snarky stampers for our G is for Grey challenge!! Edna appreciates the love :)

  7. I can't decide if this card is snarky... or just truth. Guess it depends on the family. :D I love the way these two stamps go so well together! And your CAS design. Thanks for joining the fun -- again! -- at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

  8. lololol! Perfect! And in your flashback post, omg the guilt....it's like my family sport. Dang.

  9. That is so true. Love your card. Thanks for joining us at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

  10. Love this card as well as the flash back cards! Yep Colin is totally drool worthy!

    Also, thanks for joining us again at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

  11. Please put in your will that when you kick it I need this greeting stamp. I also need in as a t-shirt and a bumper sticker and possibly a billboard.

    Great card, love how your style has changed from fussy to CAS.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
