Time to Hit the Books

Hi!

I have a fun post today!! (For me anyway!)

Jennie the challenge Guru on the A Muse Lounge has come up with a fabulous new challenge this month to stretch our creativity! The challenge is called, "Time to Hit the Books," to make a card inspired in any way by a book.

Since I've been so addicted to the Twilight series lately (yes, I admit it) they were my first thought for inspiration! Lots of ideas floated around in my head, but the love scenes were what ultimately got me!! (beware!)

So, I decided to make a card for each book in the series (minus Midnight Sun). I'll post the first 2 today and the other 2 hopefully tomorrow! Here goes:

Twilight - "S"moo-chas Grass-ias - the Meadow Scene!!

Heehee!! I couldn't resist! I knew I wanted to use the kissing couple even though they're a stretch for Bella and Edward, (the clothes are all wrong), but it's the idea, right? I did add some Stickles to Edward's face to make him sparkle!! The sentiment came later as I was looking through my sentiment stash. I saw the "grass" in it and instantly thought of the meadow and them kissing and decided ""smoo-chas" would work!! I got to use my new, cute, little EK Success scallop border punch too!! (All stamps and papers used here are by A Muse Artstamps)

New Moon - Book Cover - Thinking of You


So, this is the only card of this series that I didn't do a "romance"scene on. I have thought for awhile about the covers of the books and how they'd make cool cards, maybe someday I'll attempt to make some more inspired by the other covers, but this one in particular, I love,with the upside down Tulip:


Since I didn't have a Tulip stamp or punch that would pass as a Tulip. I just used an EK Success 5 petal flower punch and punched it twice, folding it down over itself an layered it. Not exactly a Tulip but still a flower that could pass to represent the cover. Not sure if I needed to add some ribbon across the top of the card or not, but decided not to over do it.

Stay tuned for the next 2, they're silly and maybe a little naughty, but still PG, maybe 13? I don't know you let me know tomorrow, K?? :D

Hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Blessings to you!

Your "smoo-chas grass-ias" card has me cracking up! My little 6 year old said "What are they doing?" :) The flower card is just plain incredible!

Your cards are so clever. I think they should be sent to Stephenie Meyer. She has 4 journals for sale that have the book covers on each one. Your New Moon one would make a great journal cover.
