Introducing LaBlanche Stamps and Specialty Paper

When I was at CHA in January, I ran across this new vendor... LaBlanche Stamps. I was mesmerized watching the artist create the most beautiful pieces of art with her wonderfully detailed stamps and distress inks. And I loved how they looked when embossed with UTEE. The stamps are also unusual in that they are made of silicone and mounted on a foam block.

Well, what can I say... I was hooked! And I thought perhaps some of you might like them too...especially if you like the more artsy look, altered art, distress inks and the like. Any Tim Holtz fans out there besides me? I thought so! I hope to stock more Tim Holtz goodies as time goes by, but initially I've stocked a few things that will help you create the look that Blanche is demonstrating in this video...



And, of course, the stamps! Here are a few of what you'll find in stock on Monday...




Plus, I'm stocking some of that wonderful specialty stamping paper Blanche uses in the video. I'm telling you, I've never felt such smooth cardstock in my life! I'm stocking the card size, which is perfect for these images, and will cost less and weigh less for shipping. If there are enough requests, I'll see about stocking the larger full sheets.

As with everything starting out, with no idea of demand, quantities will be limited. However, if you all love the stamps and paper as much as I do, I will certainly reorder and add more images as quickly as possible!

See you tomorrow for more previews of coming attractions!

Loved that video, and the artwork on those stamps is just amazing. The paper sounds yummy and I'm really glad that it comes in the smaller size. It obvious you've put your heart and soul into this and thought of all the details. Thanks Lisa.
