Recycled Wrapping Paper

I know it doesn't seem like it, as all the images are so different, but the focal images on all these cards are made from offcuts salvaged from the wrapping paper I used for my mum's birthday present.This one uses a 'Friendship' stamp by Stampin' Up!, and a friendship text stamp by Hero Arts, repeat stamped on kraft CS from Elzybells, using Versafine's Vintage Sepia ink. Not sure how I managed to tie that bow upside down, though. Must have been standing on my head at the time.

I don't like this one, so will probably get re-recycled! lol ;o) Uses that lovely Hero Arts text stamp again, with a Stempleglede border from the Grunge Collection. The image is cut with Nestabilities Labels #8 and the ribbon I picked up at Sir Stampalot recently. The metal word plaque says 'friendship'.

Have used my favourite harlequin stamp in the background, and the Stempelglede border makes another appearance. The 'bloom with abandon' stamp is by Cornish Heritage Farms, stamped directly onto the image in black Stazon.

The green background was one of those 'stamping errors' scraps that's been hanging around for years! Looks cool though, don't you think? I glittered the centre of one of the daisies with yellow Stickles. Martha Stewart butterfly.

Think I've covered everything on this card, except the Prima flower and Ash branch punch, which I think is McGill.
