Hi there! I'm new to Craftster and learning my way around. Smiley I make keepsake embellished greeting cards with stamped images or printed vintage images. Most of my cards are easel-style so they sit on a shelf proudly. I adore crocheted lace and snatch up vintage lace whenever I find it.... then I hoard it and use stuff I found at Joann's. *grin* I'd love to share a few cards if you don't mind.

This is a vintage-inspired card made in November. The printed vintage image was enhanced with Stickles glitter glue and a crackle paint. The crocheted lace is sewn on. (I sew on most -if not all- my cards.)


This is a good representation of my 3D character cards. This little lady is called Tilda, from a popular line of Swedish stamps. I stamp multiple images and layer parts to create a life-like effect.


This is my favorite card. It's made with a triple-printed vintage Pear's Soap ad. I added glitter glue to the butterfly wings - Stickles glitter glue is my BEST friend in the studio. The lace and pearl was inspired by a satin ribbon necklace I saw at the Bead & Button show last year - cool, huh?


So, there you go. I hope this isn't too much.

Cheers,
Susan
