When is a pineapple not a pineapple?

I bought a papercrafting magazine at the end of last week which had this set of fun stamps,dies and embossing folder free.

It's  strange how the mind works but not only did I see pineapples but I  also saw pine cones. Yesterday evening I spent some time playing around with the set and came up with two completely different cards.

For this card I used the pineapple as a pine cone.  I stamped out the image three times and painted them using SU ink pads.  The foliage stamp is from an SU set called Ornamental Pine, along with the sentiment.  I stamped the backgound in Early Espresso first and then Versamark and gold embossing powder. The pine cones have also got some glitter on for a little Christmas sparkle.  I cut the pine cones out by hand for this one

For my second card I created my own background using the smaller pineapple.  I then stamped one of the larger pineapples and the leaves and then used the dies that came with the set.  I also,played around with the inks to create a little splatter background for the pineapples to be placed on.  I've had great fun with this set.
