Illustrator Blog Hop

Hello, friends:}

Tonight is the Illustrator Blog Hop and the theme is Movie Mania. We were to pick a movie that we like and make a card that was inspired by that movie. Here are a couple of things about me....1) I don't really watch movies 2) I only have two fav movies:: Throw Mama From the Train and Stigmata 3) I haven't seen a movie in a looooooooooong time! So knowing that...I went with Throw Mama From the Train! This is a classic--a crazy guy wants to kill his mom, so he invites his writing teacher in on the deal since the teacher mentions that he would like to kill his ex-wife.....this mother is hilarious by the way! "OWEN!!!!!!!!!!" That is what she yells the whole time! Anyway...this movie is kind of mean since they want to kill the mother...so I turned this inspiration around and I made two cards that were for Mother's day-and there is a scene in the movie where she is drinking from a tea cup [which inspired me to make these cards!]. I used my Nina Brackett Lovely Shelf and Vintage Background stamp sets. I looooove that text stamp! 
Not sure if you can see it--but the flower was made using the houndstooth stamp from Nina's Vintage Background set. Super fun stamp! 

I really like this second card...love the color combo and the paper piecing! Love Nina's stamps!
Not sure if you can see it--but the text was stamped with black ink...however, a couple of lines I stamped with red ink. I love that effect!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Love when I get to share some Nina Brackett  inspired cards with you:} LOOOOOOVE visiting with you! Be blessed!
Until next time~
Love, Sav
