Happy Sunday and hope your weekend is going well. I am back today with a trio of vintage cards. I used the same stamp on each card--Silhouette Portrait from Blockheads. You can purchase this stamp for $1.50 until July 25 during the storewide 75% off sale on the Blockheads Web site!! Take a look at my trio!
I stamped the vintage lady in coordinating ink colors on CS. I dry embossed backgrounds as well.
On the first card, I added some pretty DP from Pink Paislee. The main image is distressed on the edges with Mown Lawn Distress ink.
I added lace, green satin ribbon, and a paper flower on this card.
On the second card, I used a faux linen technique on the stamped part.
- Start with white glossy CS
- Add blue ink and stamp the vintage lady with brown ink
- sand the glossy paper with sandpaper
I dry embossed the stamped piece after doing the faux linen treatment. I layered with dark brown CS and some pretty DP from Authentique.
To embellishment this card, I added paper roses and sheer blue ribbon.
On the third card, I stamped on pink CS with dark rose ink and then dry embossed.
I used sheer ribbon and tulle for the embellishments.
This stamp makes a great girly card. I can use the cards for any occasion--maybe a birthday or thinking of you. Three more nice cards for my card box!!
