Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop


Woah there Horsey!
Where is this year going...time is just flying by!?
It's Blog Hop time again for the Dream Team of Mo's Digital Pencil and this month Heidy is our hostess with her chosen theme of SHAKER CARDS.

I think most of us had never made a Shaker card before and if any of the others joined me in confession, they would own up to a few mistakes in the making of our cards with quite a lot of the 'shakings' ending up on the floor!
So here's mine, I've used Sophie, coloured with Promarkers (what else!) to create a CAS card. The flowers were cut from some lush Doodlebug paper, the centres punched out with an X-cut retro flower punch, foam pads added around the cut out and yellow glittery dust added to form the 'pollen' shaker part. The punched out flower were then used at the bottom of the card with white card-candy centres added.
I hope you'll join with our hop this month & check out the other 'Shaking' creations that the team have put together, as always there are $5 vouchers up for grabs for 2 lucky peeps who leave comments along the hop to spend in Mo's Digital emporium.
If you're already on the hop then you should have arrived here from the lovely Gretha's blog, after me, head on over to Julie's fabulous blog for some more inspiration. If you'd like to start at the beginning, then Heidy's amazing blog is the place to be.
Have a groovy hop everyone!

OMW, I just LOVE this!! What a brilliant idea to use the flowers themselves for the shaker. The CAS lines really empasise the shaker flowers. If my first shaker card turned out anything like this I would die happy! But not yet please! LOL.

for never making a shaker card before you did a wonderful job. i had to really look to find the shaker part. i would never have thought to put it like that. thanks for the inspiration.

Whimcees said...

Hello!

It took me a moment of "Where is the shaker part?" and then when I saw it I was so inspired, as in Yes! I love that you used the shaker for the 'pollen' - how wonderfully creative! Plus your card is lovely! Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane
