Welcome to the May edition of the Wednesday Artisan Blog Hop!  Check back every Wednesday to see new projects that 10 Stampin' Up! Artisan's have created.  Did you just come from Heidi's blog?  If you missed her project, go back and check it out.  Her projects always inspire my creativity.

Here is my Stampin' Up! Artisan Facebook post:



This project says everything without saying anything at all.  It’s very rare that I create something that doesn’t have a sentiment on it.  It’s pretty handy to create cards without sentiments because then you can use them for anything.  I am having a little obsession with creating my own envelopes lately.  Have you noticed?  There’s just something so much more personal when you’ve created the envelope to match your card.  To create your own custom envelopes, take any envelope and open it up.  Then trace it on your desired paper and reassemble.  With this envelope, I turned it sideways and left the top open so you could pull the note card out the top.  Where did I get those super cute small hexagons?  We have a sheet in the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper that matches these hexagons but they’re big.  This is what I did:  open up the Tea for Two paper in MDS and shrink the image to 50% of the original size.  Then I printed it out on Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut out the hexagons.  EASY!!  Also, when I put the packing paper on my note card, I used Glue Dots in select locations to hold the paper to the card so the paper is still allowed to puff up and pop off the card without falling off.  It gives the note a lot of dimension that it wouldn’t have otherwise.  LOVE it!!  *note* When you need a color of seam binding that you don’t have, color the Very Vanilla Seam Binding with a Stampin’ Write Marker.  Perfect every time.
