Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #35 -Some Like it Hot

Well, it's true...Some like it hot, but boy am I glad it's cooled down around here. I'm getting a little tired of the swollen feet and ankles! :) I do really enjoy this movie though...I think this was the movie that encouraged me to try more black and white classics. It is just hysterical -I just love both Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in this. The requirements for the project this week was to use lace and/or ruffles. Here is what I came up with:

I went with a little take on the "goodie in a garter" that seemed to keep popping up in the movie -be it a flask or something else, and incorporated a modified quote from Josephine/Tony Curtis in regards to Sugar's/Marilyn Monroe story about always getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop.
I gathered 2 kinds/sizes of ribbons with needle and thread, and made some "paper lace" using c/s and punches.
Here is the supply list:
Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red cardstocks, SU! Passing Notes font, White Wide organza ribbon (SU! retired), Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon, punches: Scallop Circle, Scallop Edge, 1.25" circle, 1/8" & 1/16" hand-held, Pop-up glue dots, and lots of Sticky Strip.
Come play -it's fun and rather addicting!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Beautiful Punch made lace edging, looks just like a garter belt from the movie.

  2. Great idea for a card, love the garter look!

  3. Nancy!
    I love the card! What a cute idea.. I love the quote about the fuzzy end of the Lollipop.... What a great place to hide a little sugar in your garter... LOVE IT! Thanks for playing along we LOVE having you....


  4. Nancy, I love it! The garter turned out very cool. Nice job!

  5. Oh, what a great idea to make a garter belt! And it is a fantastic one. Great job!

  6. LOVE how you did the garter belt!! And its true - it was funny how it kept just popping up and showing a conceled whiskey flask - etc.! Beautiful card - great ruffles and great sentiment!!!

    Thank you so much for joining in on the fun and playing along with us over at Cinema Saturday!!! Sending you a basketful of sweet lollipops (with no fuzzies on them :)
    best wishes,
    Sankari :)
