IAR "Tis the Season" Blog Hop

WELCOME! to the I Am Roses “Tis the Season” Blog Hop. We have so much holiday inspiration coming to you from our Designers & Guest Hoppers. You have just seen the fabulous project from Patricia!  Thanks Patricia!!!  I am delighted to take part in this years blog hop as a Guest Hopper!

I had the best time creating this "Happy Holidays" card using 2 different sizes Poinsettias.  These flowers go perfect with glitter paper, I used silver glitter paper, but I think gold glitter paper will look just as pretty.  I also used some pearls to embellish the image of the card and red stickles to embellish image.  I love the way this came out!!  The flowers add holiday spirit to the card as well as a bright pop of color.  This  card will also look pretty using one color of flowers or just using 2 colors, I had to use all three because they are just so pretty, the centers also add the right pop of dimension.

Here they are on the I Am Roses website, along with some other Holiday Themed Flowers:

Prima Pastiche Altered Box for I Am Roses

For this altered wooden box I decided to use the 2010 Prima Pastiche collection - this was the "it" paper when it came out!  I thought it would be perfect for this wooden box I had in my "to be altered" bin.  I had already pre-painted the box (I love painting things, its so relaxing, I love getting every nook and cranny and finishing all the sides) with a Black Metallic paint from Folk Art. I just love how this came out.

Here are some close ups:

Here are the I Am Roses products used in this project:

3.00 inch White Roses (Only used leaves for this project)
