Wrist cuffs

Here are two wrist cuffs I made using the Embroidered Border die from Papertrey Ink.

The silver one is faux leather, with a magnetic bracelet clasp.
The dark brown one is made from a leather scrap.  To hide the stitching, I added adhesive felt to the back.

Hot Chocolate Cozy

Here are two animal hot chocolate cozies I made.  I used the Coffee Cozy and Softie Expressions and Ears dies from Papertrey Ink.

The take-away cups in Australia must be a bit smaller, because I had to use two of the small Coffee Cozy dies for each one, instead of a small and large die.  The black felt has silver glitter through it, which doesn't really show up in the photo.

I am linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  This week's theme is felt!

Cactus Pin Cusion

This cactus was made from orange slices!

I cut 12 of the 'Seasonal Stitching Fruit' dies from Papertrey Ink to make 6 cactus leaves. I sewed each of them up and stuffed with wadding.  I laid them in a row and gathered them up with three individual stitching threads:

Graffiti Card

I was inspired by this wonderful card from Kim Singdahlsen

Here is the card I made:

I made the paint cans by cutting up the 'Zappy Birthday' die from Papertrey Ink as shown, and then colouring the pieces:
