Welcome to the second Artisan Wednesday Wow hop of our team’s last month! It is so hard to believe that this year is almost over. If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.

AWW Jul - Happy Shaker Card

I thought it would be fun to focus on the new Little Letters Thinlits today!  They are great for punching out letters for your projects, of course.  But they are also wonderful when use in the negative version.  Just line them up to create a word and roll through your Big Shot.  For this one, I rolled just one “P” through and then created the rest of the word with a second roll.  I wanted this to be a shaker card with a masculine flair so I kept to the Black/Vanilla colors except for the touch of gold from the sequins.  To create the shaker, I first backed the “HAPPY” piece with a Window Sheet. Then using the edges from my Dimensionals page, I created a rectangle just a bit bigger than the words and put in a bunch of sequins pulled off the Gold Sequin Trim.  I added the Basic Black backing and the shaker is done.  Easy!  I love the numbers print from Typeset DSP and it seemed to be made for a birthday card!  All I needed was a few extra sequins and I think I created a nice masculine card?  What to you think?

Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
