Crafts & Me DT Card with New Release Images

Hello my lovelies, this should have gone on yestererday but didnt have time to get to my blog, but shall not bore you with details & will push on ;0)

Okie dokie so over at Crafts & Me the lovely Teresa has released some new images...........they are yummy Vintage Photo Images & they are digital..........wow does it get any better!! I love vintage & I love it when I can print them out any size I want & however many times as I want & let me tell you these are all so yummy scrummy.

WARNING PHOTO HEAVY............
This image is called 'Whispers Of Love' & I think this is so sweet & I love the wording on it.
'Murmerings of happy thoughts whisper'd by a shell, deeper than the ocean is the love that they would tell'

The paper is Marianne Design 'Victorian Vintage' perfect for any type of vintage card etc. I distressed the edges & inked them with Walnut DI.

I frantaged the 'Metal Corner' & the 'Chloe Stems' with Shabby White. I added a doily from my stash & punched out little butterflies in the same paper & inked the edges & added pearls.
I also added some gorgeous. 'Tulle Pleat Trim' & some 'Organza Rose Trim' I love these they are so pretty.
The image I printed onto matt photo paper, distressed & inked the edges then embossed with UTEE & cracked in the corners to give an overall old  kinda look.

Now I also made a matching gift tag for a present to go with the card because the paper I was using is A5 the scraps left over were perfect for a tag. For the tag I find Melissa Frances cards are perfect as either a template or just decorate them up.......recycling.....
I always keep the cards that her gorgeous stuff comes on & because she does so many things, the card are all in different sizes........for this tag I used the size that the pleated satin trim is on.
If you want any gorgeous Melissa Frances goodies you can get them here.
This is the tag using that template, I even had a tiny bit of organza rose trim left to go along the bottom.......really need more but its out of stock :0(

I added one of Marianne's gorgeous 'Cream Tassels' to a Marianne clock die.

Now the image on here I printed off onto Stamping Linen, I printed it on an injet printer & on the matt side.....i.e smooth side. I frayed the edges then pinned it, using TH safety pins to some cream burlap, at least the image could be taken off & kept if the tag is thrown. It printed absolutely beautifully onto this linen. Teresa at Crafts & Me will have this in store very soon, us DT girls are trying it & lurving it!!!

If you enlarge this pic you can see the grain on the linen which looks like canvas, its fabulous stuff!!

Here they are together, you would have thought I would have stood them side by side instead of merging 2 photo's after wouldn't you lol. The inside of the card is not decorated as I'm not sure if I'm happy with it yet tbh.........you never know it may grow on me. The tag I like lol.
The flowers as always are from WOC.

Well thats it from me but why not pop on over to Crafts & Me & check out the gorgeous new digital Vintage Photo images, they are all gorgeous!!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'm off to do some catching up while I have 5 lol.

Squishy hugs & groovy love to all xxxxxxxxxxxxx

They're both gorgeous, really like that image. I think I need to pop over and check out the new images, but I'm a bit puzzled by how you can print on linen. How do you make fabric go through the printer??? I don't think my laser printer would approve of that.... So funny that you mentioned the MF cards, I actually used one yesterday for my card.
