Your craft booty that is- although you're very welcome to shake any other booty your might have! Yes, it's time for our monthly blog hop at Mo's Dream Team and this month's theme has been chosen by our awesome Heidy, which you have probably guessed by now is to make a Shaker card!
Hopefully, you are hopping along with us and should have arrived here from a no doubt fabulous shaker card on Jane's blog. If not, and you want to hop along ( whilst shaking your booty of course!) go back to the beginning to Heidy's blog, who I'm sure will have an awesome make to share with you. After me the next stop on the hop is Debby 4000, who will also amaze and inspire you, I'm certain!!
I've used this fabulous new image from Mo called Bubbles Boy- I do love him so, and there's also the cutest Bubbles Girl who is going to be next on my list to get!!
Absolutely ages ago I bought these little glass beads from Tiger as I thought they looked just like bubbles but they are a bit big for a shaker card so I kept having to build up the sides of my frame with about four layers of foam tape!! It then looked very untidy so had to make a casing to go round it to hide all the tape! The pic below gives a little side view to give you some idea of the faffing involved!!
I also added in some translucent sequins which also look a little bubble like and shake much better than the beads!! The beads on wire were bought very cheaply ages ago from Hobbycraft, again with a bubble blowing theme in mind - I'm so happy that Mo has given us these bubble blowing beauties!!
I also used an 8x8 card black as I didn't want to make the image too small behind the frame. My papers are a real mixture of Papermania Portabello Road and October Afternoon (Dime Store, I think). Keeping along the bubble theme I've used a MS Punch around the Page Bubble set, whilst the bunting is a Stampin Up punch.
Well, I hope you made it this far - thanks for your patience! Don't forget to leave a comment on each DT blog post as somewhere amongst us are hidden two $5 vouchers to spend in Mo's Digital Pencil!!! Just a reminder here too, that your next stop on the hop is here at Debby 4000.
Happy Hopping and Shaking!!!
