October Blog Hop - Day 4 - Create with Pine Boughs

Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

October Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

 Featured Oct. 28 - Owls

Featured Oct. 29 - Polka Dot Country

 Featured Oct. 30 - Cardinal
Featured Oct. 31 - Create with Pine Boughs
I had some fun with this set creating 4 cards. 
The first one uses a blown alcohol ink background and the baubles from the set stamped and embossed in gold.

The second one uses the bauble image on designer paper to create a 3D effect bauble.
The third card uses the bulb and the greenery to create a garland 

This card is my favourite - coloured with Copics and simply mounted with a gold border.
