Don't throw away your left overs!

I don't know about you but I always have left overs from card sessions, extra stamped images, odds and ends of ribbon, die cuts and unwanted punches! 
This evening I decided to try and create some cards just from a box of scraps and leftovers all with a thank you theme. The colours are just left from prepping for a workshop last night, all the unwanted bits after changing my mind so many times on my demonstration.
So here are the cards that I came up with:

Stampin Up quick cards
scribbles die, chocolate chip  & baja breeze cardstock, butterfly embossilts, just believe stamp set, i heart hearts stamp set, designer labels punch, build a bird punch.

Embosslits butterflies, scribbles die, decorative label punch, baja breeze cardstock

vanilla satin ribbon, bird punch, scribbles die, baja breeze cardstock

Just Believe, chocolate chip

I Heart Hearts, decorative label punch, chocolate chip satin ribbon, rhinestones

negative of scribbles die, butterfly embosslits, vanilla satin ribbon

I think this is my favourite, it's a Chocolate Chip negative of the scribbles die matted onto some Baja Breeze cardstock, a few embosslits butterflies dotted around, a rhinestone and a sentiment. I am absolutely addicted to making ribbon roses at the moment, they seem to appear on so many of my recent cards. I love the colour scheme of this card too, for some reason it looks so much more striking than the others, even though they are all using the same left overs!

So, ladies and gentlemen, don't throw away your left overs, you never know what you can create with them.
