Huntington Club Cards

Don't you just love fall? I love the colors, the warm days and crisp nights, and all the scents that accompany this time of year! 

This month at my Cross Lanes club we will be using our Huntington papers to create 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs)! And the warm colors in this paper pack will stir up everything you love about fall as you create your own set!

This first card features our Always Grateful stamp set. I LOVE this stamp set and I know I will use it over and over again!




I also colored the ribbon using our Barn Red Alcohol Marker! LOVE how easy it is to coordinate your ribbon with our papers with our Color Ready Ribbon and any of our markers!

This next card features last month's stamp of the month - Poster Tidings. So easy to paper piece in the different colors! And just for fun I added a row of leaves from our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!



This next card features our Perfect Fit - Thanksgiving stamp set! I love the elegant designs in this stamp set. The card base and the turkey are found on our Artiste Cricut Cartridge. These make adorable holiday cards, but I think I will use mine as place settings at the dinner table! I want to create coordinating napkin rings using our Base & Bling Rings too!



This last set of cards features the same stamp set as above, but is a simple thank you card. The colors and lack of bling make it an appropriate male card (I don't have too many of those since I am so attracted to anything that sparkles!). I used our 1 1/4" circle punch to punch out the sentiment along with our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge to create the shapes under the sentiment!




Would you like to join us to make these cards? We are meeting on Friday, October 25th at two times: 1:00pm and 6:00pm. Contact me if you would like to attend our club as a guest, join the club, or start a club of your own!

Gotta go get some more spiced cider after looking at these cards!

  1. Ooh! My favorite are the last 3 cards. You could totally change out the sentiment area to make these St. Patrick's Day cards! Lovely.

  2. That never occurred to me, but you are right! I'll have to remember that for next year! :o)

  3. Awesome cards! Can you please tell me what technique you used to get the textured look on the leaves of the Poster Tidings card?

    1. Thank you! For the leaves, I crumpled them in my hands then inked them with cocoa ink. That's it! By crumpling them before inking, the ink will stick to the crinkles and creases giving them a genuine distressed look!

      Hope that helps!
