Good afternoon everyone. I have an I Am Roses project to share today. It is a gift box and a card. This was a hostess gift for my friend Thai (YouTube: EvilScrapper). She was kind enough to open up her place for me to stay the night after a birthday crop that we went to.

As you can see the theme I chose was Twilight. Go Team Edward!! LOL. The stamp I used was from The Greeting Farm, a Edward digi stamp. I made him all sparkly with some awesome glitter. The images of the apple, the moon and the word Bitten are all from the stack DCWV Immortal Love, perfect! I thought it was cute to add the Red Semi Open Rose bud to Edward =)

I made the coordinating gift box to go with the card. You can watch my tutorial video here, showing how you can make a similar box with any design paper of your choosing. I added more of the rose buds in front, as well as the 1/2" White Flowers and a Black Rose from a Random Mixed Sizes of Black Tones.
I wanted to personalize the lid, so I used some die cuts to spell out her name. The leaves and the letters were sprayed with a gorgeous black from Lindy's Stamp Gang, Midnight Rendezvous Black. I added some bling and more flowers on the top left corner. For more details you can view my video of this project here. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your short work week (for those in the U.S)!

Merriest Wishes

Hi everyone Happy Thursday evening or Friday! I created this I Am Roses holiday gift box to share with you guys. It was really simple to make using designer paper. You can watch the tutorial here. All the edges were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The sentiment "Merriest Wishes" is from a Hero Arts stamp set. I framed it with the Classic Ovals Small and Labels Four dies from Spellbinders. I then used dimensional pop dots to raise it up and it allows the seam binding to run through the back. Some 1/4" Red & Brown Mini Paper Roses and 1/2" White Paper Roses accent the corners.

I am in love with this new flower to the I Am Roses Site, Big Red Gardenia. I used it as the centerpiece in the floral arrangement on the lid. One word, gorgeous! I first placed some brown seam binding and then laid some Skeleton Leaves as the base. I randomly placed White Cherry Blossoms, 1" White Paper Roses, Brown Paper Roses and some Mini Red Paper Roses all around the base of the red gardenia.

The box is filled with yummy goodies for my friend for a holiday crop party. I can't wait for her to see it =).

I hope you've enjoyed my gift box and tutorial video. Have a fabulous Friday and weekend!

Now on to what I created…

Our challenge for this hop was to create a Fall themed tag using I Am Roses flowers. This is my tag for you guys today. The tag measures 3 1/8" x 6 1/8". I am still trying to use my paper stash and this one is My Mind's Eye Bohemian collection. The stamp set I used is from Inkadinkadoo Autumn Foliage. The sentiment is embossed with gold embossing powder. The two frames are from Tattered Angels, the square frame is sprayed with Dark Chocolate Truffle Starburst from Lindy's Stamp Gang and the ornate frame was colored with some gold glitter nail polish, yes I used nail polish LOL.

I distressed the edges of the tag with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. The orange tangerine cherry blossoms were perfect for my Fall theme.

I layered some green daisy leaves with some gold metal flat leaves from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I just love the white gardenia as the main floral focal point. To finish off the tag I used some fibers in lieu of ribbon. So there is my tag and I hope you enjoyed it. Links of the flowers will be posted below.

Next Design Team member up is Joy! I’m sure she has something AMAZING to share with you!
