Vintage Finds

A new favorite of mine is this card created with lots of cute stuff: Paper from MME (a very old paper that I still keep 'cause is one of my favorites!) Vintage image from the New collage Love Letters
Stamps from Papertrey Ink and Layers Of Color, Chipboard heart from Maya Road, lace, seam binding, silk flower, vintage buttons
And now a little bit about the vintage images, these are very easy to use, you just need a color printer, cardstock and of course the file with the images.
Most of the images will fit a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock, once I print them I cut the way I want to use each image
The cardstock I use is white and it can be any type (I like the one that is not textured, I think works better for the images) The one on the photo below is the one that I like the most, I would like to print in fabric, any ideas?

Thank you so much for your sweet comments! I hope you all have a great weekend :)

I think printing on the sticky backed canvas would be BEAUTIFUL with these! Let us know what you try!
Beautiful work as always!

Iron-on stablizer to the back of your fabric (maybe muslin) 8.5x11
and then run through your printer

All good suggestions--one more...maybe iron freezer paper to your fabric, then run through the printer?

When I want to print onto tissue paper (to melt into candles) I just tape the edges of the tissue onto a sheet of copy paper (since it will be trimmed away neatness doesn't matter), making sure it's smooth and run through my printer. Works great. Maybe you could tape thin fabric to paper?

Love your cards.
