This set called Family works really well with a vintage look. I stamped the image of this lady onto white cardstock. I then teabag dyed it to give it a vintage look. Then I did cracked glass technique. I then embossed the frame part with copper embossing powder. I added quilled roses, lace, a pink satin ribbon that I had painted with white and cream acrylic paint and crackle medium. I also added a page from an old encyclopedia. It has the name Lydia on it. I thought this lady looked like a Lydia. If you would like to see what the other designers for MFP have done with this stamp set, check out the blog hop that is happening HERE.


  1. MariLynn, this is a beauty! Your stamped image is PERFECT for the Cracked Glass technique! I love all the details you added to your card!

  2. OMG this is gorgeous!!!! It really looks like a true vintage keepsake!! What is the edge around the photo? Ribbon?
