The holidays are right around the corner and now is the time to get your shopping done. Why not avoid the crows and shop online with Mark's Finest Papers? There are some great deals to be had!
Today's set is called "Mountain Selections".
This is another 'selections' set where images from previously released sets are brought together in smaller sizes. They are great for those who like to build scenes, or to have many images to choose from. This is what I came up with:
I started by stamping the various sizes of house stamps randomly over the piece of white card stock. Once finished I inked the edges and matted it with some kraft. I chose a piece of patterned paper, inked the edges and wrapped it in twine.
After adhering the panel to the card base I foam taped the image panel over the twine. I added a sentiment from the "Big City" set that was heat embossed on a banner strip of kraft, and added some green rhinestones.
for the centre of the card I adhered an inked piece of white then added a scrap strip that I had punched with a scallop boarder punch on both sides.
This is a really cute set, perfect if you like to build scenes, or if you like smaller images to use on your cards. But this isn't the only amazing set this month, why not go to Mark's Finest Papers store and have a closer look at what is being offered this month.
Oh, and this is a blog hop after all so don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with! And the main blog has lots of inspiration as well. Happy hopping!
