March thinking outside the box challenge

The March Anything Goes challenge at In Love With Stamping is to think outside the box and turn our stamps into something else eg. stamp a flower using hearts, a bug using petals.

I've used my fruit stamps to create a flower spray:

Stamp sets: Tart & Tangy, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Barely Banana, Old Olive, Whisper White
DSP: Kaleidoscope
Ink: SU Markers (Old Olive, Cameo Coral)
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval, 1/4" Circle
Large Grosgrain Ribbon: Old Olive
Striped Grosgrain Ribbon: Old Olive

Using my markers direct to stamp, I inked just the cherry stem and turned it upside down. I then inked just the inside of the lemon slice stamp and stamped it for the flower heads, using my stamp-a-ma-jig to place them. The ribbon edging uses just a few scraps of ribbon - a great way of using them up.

What can you turn your stamps into?
