CTMH Huntington

There is just something I love about the CTMH Huntington paper packet.  I've used it for multiple cards and for a Heritage Layout.  It is vintage, fall and the gray paper mixed with black and white would be perfect for a wedding card.  Today, I used it for its intended purpose...a fall card.

This card is for my upcoming October Crafting in the Country workshop.  It uses the Perfect Fit Thanksgiving stamp set (B1427) for the sentiment and the pumpkins are from last year's September STOM.  We had used that in last years October class.  Each of my classes builds upon a previous class.  We review techniques we've done in the past (in case some one new is joining us), sometimes use stamps from previous classes with new papers and always have a new technique.  Last month, we did the Frosted Workshop on the Go, so I wanted to use one of the sketches we used from that class to show that a sketch works for multiple styles of cards.

This card is done on an A2 base of Barn Red.  The mats are sponged with Cashmere and the pumpkin has been stamped with Archival Black and colored with my CTMH Alcohol Markers.  The card is also embellished with Bitty Pearls and hemp.

So, remember, just because a paper or a sketch has been pictured using it is one set way, doesn't mean you can't change it up and call it your own.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
