CTMH Huntington and September SOTM

Good morning blog-world friends! I thought I'd share
a quick card with y'all this morning!
For this card I used the CTMH Huntington Paper pack
and the September stamp of the month that's no longer
available... This is a really fun stamp because there
are so many options to how you can use it.
For this card I used the whole stamp though I am going
to make a card using only half of the stamp...

First I stamped the whole stamp in desert sand ink on colonial 
white carstock. Then I picked the words I wanted to be
different colors and I wrapped my stamp set around a 
2 x 3.5 My Acrylix Block to save ink and paper and only
get inked the word I wanted. I used Redbarn, goldrush and olive
inks for the words I picked out. I then cut the words out and 
popped them up on pop dots over the words stamped 
in desert sand. I then used a leaf embossing folder I had in my
stash to give the background some texture. The card base is
4.5 x 6.25 in Redbarn with a matting layer of desert sand
that I distressed using the CTMH edge distressing tool and then
inked the distressed edges. The little strips at the top
are zip-strips from the top of one of the B&T papers from
the paper pack. I also added a little bling with the 
bronze shimmer trim and a little leaf from the Autumn/Winter
petite perks 4 stamp set only available from a CTMH consultant!
(be looking for a give-away I will be doing for this cute little set!)
I finished up the inside with a stamp from the Count Your Blessings set.
