Karla, I purchased one of the 3 boxes of this style and I was planning on leaving it just as is (because it's beautiful already), but you have made this so much more pretty!! Thank you so much for sharing this project with us.

P.S. Love the new look of your blog.

Now on to what I created…

"Sending Warm Fuzzies" Greeting Farm Card

I wanted to create a card showcasing the new sprays - the short sprays come in four fabulous colors and have an expresso brown stem.  These sprays reminded me of autumn and I was dying to use a mustard/khaki color combo. The white spray and expresso stem worked perfect for the look I was trying to achieve, I love the brown leaves - I can't wait to use the other colors!  I accentuated the autumn look with trim that reminded me of fall sweaters. I finished off the card using small roses in the 0.75 and 1 inch sizes - I love these and how they matched the card perfectly.  Hope you enjoy the completed card!

Here are links to the flowers I used on this project:

Short Paper Flowers Spray SP1 -

1 Inch Brown Paper Flowers -

0.75 Inch Brown Paper Flowers -

Stamp Set by The Greeting Farm Special Autumn, Sentiment Stamp by Hero Arts
Paper - Crate Paper Portrait Collection, Neenah

Decorated Wooden Clothespin Holders for Lace & Trim - I Am Roses Project

The I Am Roses Summer Blog Hop 2011 is only a few days away, the Design Team is super excited to share our projects with you this Friday!!  Mark you calendars for some eye candy (we're using some new I Am Roses products, and make sure you comment for a chance to win two hidden blog candies...Find all the details here on Arlene's blog.

Today, I wanted to share a super fun and easy project using dollar wooden clothespins, some gorgeous lace and trim, and of course some of my favorite I Am Roses flowers.  These would be great to share with friends or to include a little extra goodies in all the different swaps we all participate in, they are almost too pretty to use!! 

The clothespins were lightly painted with some acrylic paint and stamped with some of my favorite stamps, wrap lace around the spools (I like to be color coordinated and themed, for the samples I prepared today, I made a red and black set as well as a super uber cute shabby chic set)  and tuck in some I Am Roses flowers for that finishing touch.

Find I Am Roses here:

Here are the luscious flowers I used on my project:
Tiny Rose Buds -

Small Rose Buds -

Medium Rose Buds White Puffy Semi Open -

Small White Flowers -

Hope you like my project and give it a try! I'll be making alot more of these!
