New Year - New Creations

After being sick with the flu for over a week, I finally felt well enough to go into my craft room and try some new techniques and equipment.  I think the results were pretty good!

I created this cute little "dresser" for my friend, Phyllis.  This was her Christmas present.  I used the "Matchbox Dresser" tutorial from Lydia Fiedler on SplitCoastStampers.  It took an inordinate amount of time, but the results were pretty awesome.  It is made of 24 little matchboxes (Stampin' Up! Matchbox die - discontinued of course).  Phyllis loves black and red so that was my color inspiration.

The little blue dresser below is a modified version using only six "drawers" cut with the matchbox die.  I think it is particularly sweet.  This one was for Rita whose favorite color is blue.

The roses on this card were made using the Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret stamps and dies.  I used the Stampin' Up! doily die and a Spellbinders die called Fantastic Flourish One.  I also used a WOW! embossing powder called Angel Wings.  With bits of lace and ribbon, it turned out very pretty.
