Shaker Hello

Recently I was the demo for my ATC Craft Group.

I demonstrated the Fuse Tool by We R Memory Keepers.

They could make either white or black.

They were about 50 -50.

Which do you like best?

The butterflies and hello were die cut from some Inka Gold smooshed pieces.

Time to smoosh some more!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

The black is more commanding Bonnie but I like/love both of them. Gorgeous dies and sequins are one of my favourite new embellies too Karen x

Love your shaker cards. Bet the girls had fun making them. They are both really beautiful, but you know me ... I'd pick the white. I know, it's a shocker LOL! :) xx

Doris said...

Two beautiful cards! It's amazing how they can have exactly the same elements, but look completely different with just one change in the card base. The black is more dramatic, but I prefer the white. Thanks for showing the contrast.

Both so beautiful but my favourite is the white. Love the fabulous shaker design and the gorgeous pops of colour against both the black and white cards.
Thanks for fluttering by Mrs A's Butterfly challenge - Andrea GDT xx

Too tough to call Bonnie! They are both amazing! The black one is dramatic and I adore the pops of colour from the butterfly, sentiment and sequins. The white one is clean and simple and the added bright colours from the sentiment, butterfly and sequins again pop right out! LOVE them both!! Have a very lovely day! Hazel xx

Normally I'd pick the white card, but I have to say I really like the black one...the colors just really pop more from it! But both are just lovely and who doesn't like a shaker card?! :0)

The black one really caught my eye even before asked to choose. But, both are stunning. Yes, gotta get to more smooshing...even have a grandchild making some really nice pieces!

My Fuse is still a NBUS! (I did find a Teflon holder for it, in one of the box stores recently & could use a coupon!- so maybe I'm moving in the right direction!) Love BOTH of the these pretties, no way could I say which I like best. Sorry...also love that little stitch window for the aperture - I think if you came south and gave me a good demo of the tool, I'd be inspired!!! These are wonderful Bonnie. Good job on both colorways. TFS & Have a great wkend.

Both beautiful shakers, but I think the black is so unusual in it's colour that I will go with that, mmmmm although the white is delicious too!.

Love the butterflies.

I see you got that die - and aren't you just loving it! Love the shakers you made with it. SO pretty.

Susan said...

Fabulous shaker cards! I like them both but have a slight preference for the white one. And I'll have to investigate that peek-a-boo die - love the detailing on it.

Nancy Stislow said...

Bonnie, this card is wonderful! I see people do shaker cards and it's such a struggle for me. Your Fuse Tool sounds intriguing! Love the bright colors against both backgrounds but I favor the white! Love the happy colors on these!

Maxine D said...

Bonnie this design is fabulous - personally I prefer the white based card. :-)

Greta said...

What a neat design, Bonnie--such a fun shaker! I love the white one!

Brenda in IN said...

Both of these are pretty. I love the turquoise pop of color on the black card. I think the white card shows off the sequin colors more. I really like both of them.

TK said...

Lovely! The cards are great and I have to say, the white just barely edges out the black for me!

Colorado Crafter said...

I like the black one better. But, unlike so many people, I'm not afraid of black whether it's in my clothing choices or in my cards. I just love black with beautiful bright gem tones or metallics or just black and white or ivory for eyecatching contrast. Very nice cards.

I really think I like the white one the best. I love shaker cards and think they are always light and whimsical!
