Vintage wedding envelopes "Our happiness" from Julia MITRA.

Hello everyone!
It's Julia MITRA here and my duet vintage wedding envelopes.
For the first, I'm happy to create for such a wonderful blog as a designer! And I'm so excited, because this is my first personal post!
For my first creation, I decided to make a project that represents happiness. That's how my wedding envelopes turned out.

For decoration of wedding envelopes I used scrap paper, cutting dies, die-cut with foil and glitter, chipboards and stamped flowers.

Envelopes turned out very similar, but at the same time they are different.

I used some flowers for this envelope:

Under bulk flowers you may notice flat hydrangea - Mini Soft Pink Hydrangea and Taupe Scrapbooking Paper Flowers.

The second envelope is more bright and festive.

Here are the gorgeous flowers that I used:

And finally a few drops of dew with glossy accent and a scattering of pearls.
Cutting Die from Fantasy and AgiArt.

All beautiful flowers you can find in our store HERE
I invite everyone to participate in our flower challenge JULY - you will see it soon!

With ♥, Julia)

Hello, Friends!! 
I'm so excited to be here as one of I Am Roses' newest Design Team Members! And today I will be sharing my first official blog post! 

I am generally a very upbeat and cheerful kind of person! I love to make people laugh and love to make others happy... And what says HAPPY more than RAINBOWS and UNICORNS!!

For this card, I used the following I Am Roses products...

I kept all my flowers in my "happy" rainbow color theme! I especially loved the dual-toned Yellow & Blue Rose that came in the Random Mixed 3 Toned Color Wedding Paper Roses!! It's SUPER ADORBS! And if you check it outline, you'll see lots of cool color variations... including one that resembles a galaxy sky that's absolutely gorgeous!!

My image is a rubber stamp from CC Designs called Unicorn Lucy.
I stamped it on Strathmore Mixed Media Paper with ColorBox Archival Dy Ink in Wicked Black. Then I colored this little cutie using a combination of Zig/ Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Derwent Procolour Pencils.

The frame die I used is designed by Jen Long and made by Sizzix. The border & word dies are by Diamond Press. And my patterned paper is by DCWV and Doodle Bug.

I've always been a big fan of I Am Roses. Their flowers are beyond gorgeous and the quality is outstanding! And I love the fact that most of their flowers are stemmed. So people cut these off. but if you're anything like me you tend to use those stems to pose your flowers and leaves. But did you know that you can also turn them into swirling vines (pictured above)??

Simply bend or wrap the stems around a dowel, pen, stick, or even a piercing tool to create gorgeously round curls! A simple trick to accent those already stunning flowers! Try it! Trust me, you'll wonder why you haven't done it sooner.

And here is my finished card...

It's bright, cheerful, and eagerly awaiting to make a friend HAPPY, just like me!!

Hope you all enjoyed my card for today!
Thank you so much for stopping by and joining us! 

And don't forget to join us for our I Am Roses Blog Challenge! I hear that July's the month to win amazing prizes!! So you don't want to miss out!

We hope to see you all again real soon!!

Image was coloured using Distress ink pads on watercolour paper. I haven't done no-line colouring for some time and I think it really looks good on this image.

We have some New & Familiar faces to WELCOME to the I Am Roses family.

Alexandra Vologdina (KIROV)

Hello everyone! My name is Alexandra and I live in Kirovo-Chepetsk Kirov Region, Russia. My journey in scrapbooking, card and paper crafting started at the end of 2013. It is my favourite hobby that makes me feel happy and inspires me a lot. I love working with beautiful paper and embellishments, creating multi-layered compositions, publishing my creations and sharing my feelings with crafty friends. Tender lovely flowers are my best friends. So I'm in heaven becoming  an IAR family member!

Hello dears! I'm Julia MITRA from Gomel, Belarus. 
Scrapbooking has become my hobby far as 2013. I like beautiful prints and colors, elegant and delicate work with materials, decor and flowers, of course. A scattering of beautiful flowers was my first purchase, along with scrap paper. So flowers have become an important part of my creative works. I like to scrap in different styles: classic, mixed-media, shabby-chic, vintage, eco-style, Americana and clean & simple. And, of course, I like to try new things. I'm happy to be a part of IAR design team and feel a magical time surrounded by flowers and creative people!

Hi, I'm very excited to join IAR Design Team! My name is Marina and I'm from Finland, Helsinki. Amazing nature of Finland is one of my sources of inspiration! All things crafty are just my love! Since I remember I have drawn, painted and sculpted when I was a child. I've been crafting with paper for almost 4 years. Cardmaking, scrapbooking, decoupage and a little bit home decor as well. We have two lovely children with my husband, 17 y.o. son and almost 14 y.o. daughter. 

Mitsyana Wright (USA)

Facebook: Mitsyana Wright

I am a  wife, a mother, and an extreme lover of all things crafty.  Some of my many loves include cardmaking, scrapbooking, mixed media, journal making, home decor, and... pretty much any and all things paper craft!!  I've been crafting professionally for the last 4 years and currently am on several design teams including, Eileen Hull Designs, Xyron, Clearsnap, and  Diamond Press.  I am married to my best friend for almost 14 years and we have 4 beautiful, energetic, crazy-smart, and highly imaginative kids (I think they get it from their mama). They are my crazy and chaotic world that I can't get enough of and wouldn't trade for them for anything! They are what push me and drive me but also keep me grounded. My family is my center and what inspires most of my work and without their love and support, I would not be able to do what I do.

Pam Schumacher (USA)
Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be here!  My name is Pam Schumacher and of course I love all things crafty.  I live in Eau Claire, WI and work full-time as an accountant.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 36 years.  We have three amazing daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren…soon to be 6 (twins are on the way).  I also have two Mini Aussies and a tropical bird. When I am not working, I am either creating something crafty, taking long walks, or I am outside in one my many flowers beds.
Thanks - Pam
