This is actually the first time I've played along with the Cinema Saturday. I actually made another card inspired by the colors here, but I ended up not liking it much. Funny how you can think how great something will look, but end up disliking the finished product. So.... I decided to try again.
Here it is - CAS (Clean And Simple). It's a little tall (can ya tell?) at 4"x9". I was actually inspired by two different sources - one was the new Go To Sketches from Papercrafts, the other was a card designed on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator site as an example of the new Soft Subtles. I used Rose Red and Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and an old In Color I think it was something Merigold, Mellow Moss and Certainly Celery, and Bashful Blue and another old In Color Buckaroo Blue. Anyway, I searched through my button stash and found coordinating buttons to stitch to the centers. I also used Versamark and stamped each scalloped circle with Polka Dots II from PTI. The sentiment is in Rich Razzelberry.
I promised myself a couple of months ago that I wouldn't buy any more card making idea books. I have a ton, and I've been more impressed with what I can find on SCS and other peoples' blogs. But.... I have seen so many people raving about how great this issue was (and I'm a sucker for sketches - anything to make design a little easier). I indulged yesterday and bought it. I was inspired to make the above card from one sketch, and this card from another:
Another simple card - not a lot of fanfare. But I loved the little houses and trees printed on the paper stack paper. I also stamped polka dots from PTI in Pretty in Pink on my PinP cardstock.
