Does anybody know how to print these images onto the card? It looks like tis stamped on. Is it stenciling? Or are the pictures drawn on to the card?

These look like they were all screen printed.  And, actually, if you look through the site where you found them, there's a picture of the owner using a Print Gocco (I'm pretty sure, I've never actually seen one before): http://www.sidepony.com/behindthepony.php

If you want to get started with screen printing yourself, check out this tutorial for an easy cheap way to do it: http://www.livejournal.com/community/craftgrrl/3674467.html

If you want to print large quantities (like cards), you may want to invest in a more professional screen and ink or a set.  You can find smallish screens for 10 or 20 bucks, or you can make something sturdier yourself.  I also see basic screen printing kits in art stores for $40-50 usually.

Good luck!

looks like 'clip art' anyone could probably get access to on the internet...
I am an artist, so I could easily 'freehand' those images..
but as you can see...
'sidepony' is making a business out of it..
so you may be infringing on copyright...be careful not to ruffle any feathers..

I have seen some similar stuff as e-mail cards-

try www.mypostcards.com

look for 'retro' stuff..

maybe you will find a bigger selection of images.

also, you could try www.dover.com they sell all sorts of clip art, coloring books, etc..sometimes you find their books in Michaels art stores..

Happy crafting..
