Vintage week: cards

A few vintage cards for you today made by the talented Michelle. 
Hope you like them. Don't forget to let us know what you think... 

This is a really simple card. I just stamped the lase stamp in TH Victorian Velvet ink across the bottom of a piece of cream card.
The topper was made by inking up one of the ladies from the Crafty Individuals stamp with versafine and lowering the stampbord piece on to it to carefully stamp the image. The image was then painted with TH Distress Inks and when dry triple embossed with the UTEE. When this was cool I rubbed a little Rub and Buff around the edge of the tile.
This was mounted onto the card and the sentiment stamped et Voila!

Katzelkraft unmounted rubber stamps Lace
CI-322 - Three ladies (dressmaker)
Crafty Secrets: Card sentiments
Distress Ink pads: Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Weathered Wood
Stampbord domino size
Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (Ranger): clear
Rub 'n Buff: Autumn gold


The Garden Girls stamp was stamped in the corner using the versafine ink pad and was coloured with TH Distress inks. The rest of the card was then inked using an applicator and the lace stamped on the top
The addition of the sentiment and the card was complete.

For this card I used
Crafty Secrets: Garden girls
Katzelkraft unmounted rubber stamps Lace
Versafine ink pad - vintage sepia


The card was first covered with some paper from stash, then I stamped the Crafty Individuals stamp with Versafine and coloured it with TH Distress Inks
After cutting out it was mounted on the card.
The Lace stamp was stamped and embossed on cream card using versamark and white embossing powder, then inked with antique paper and Tea Dye Distress inks.
A few flowers, bows and pearls finished this card of beautifully!

For this card I used:
Katzelkraft unmounted rubber stamps Lace
CI-303 - Dames de Paris
Versafine ink pad - black


  1. Beautiful cards, the first one is so elegant. x

  2. Beautiful cards. I love the Katzelkraft lace stamp and the Crafty Secrets sentiments have a lovely old fashioned look to them.

  3. wouahhh gorgeous card, love the 3x embossing on the first one

  4. Really nice cards but my favourite is the first one - so elegant. Is there a tutorial showing how to do the triple embossing? It looks like its across the whole piece of stampbord rather than just on the ink - really nice effect.

  5. I love the cards and the vintage effects, especially the garden girls one - so beautiful!

  6. They are all very gorgeous !!! I love especially the first one and the technics you use, thanks for the sharing... coco

  7. 3 fantastic vintage cards ! Love the Katzelkraft Lace stamps and the CI stamps you used.

  8. A trio of gorgeous cards Michelle. Love the beautiful stamps you've used and the sepia tones of the second one with white highlights is a fabulous effect.
