La Blanche Stamps at CHA

Today I have another photo intensive post to share.  One of my favorite discoveries at the Winter CHA in Los Angeles was the La Blanche stamps.  If you missed my first post about this company you can find it HERE and you can visit their website HERE.  These incredibly detailed and elegant stamps have a style that appeals to many people and are becoming very popular.

Crowds would gather around the booth when Jacqueline was demonstrating her technique for coloring and embossing the images.  She often uses a lot of UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) to finish a piece with a hard glossy coating.

There are more step by step photos in the post I linked above.  She uses distress inks and pen nibs to color the images.

The booth was full of incredible examples of art made with these images.  There were lots of fabric flowers and laces added to collages that have a very "old world" style with a twist.

You can click on any of these photos to enlarge the image and see the details more clearly.  Believe it or not, there were even more samples on display - all of them were simply amazing!

I hope you enjoyed this "virtual visit" to the La Blanche booth.  Even if this is not your typical style it is easy to appreciate the talent it took to create these beautiful samples.

While at CHA, I had a chance to meet up with Joan who is an internet friend.  We have emailed back and forth when she needed some help with Design Studio.  Joan is a big fan of the LaBlanche line and sells them in her online store.

Joan was lucky enough to receive this lovely piece as a gift.  You can read about her meeting with Jacqueline HERE and also see the stamps that she will have available for sale soon.

Just a quick reminder - the Creative Memories "FANtastic" sale celebrating their Best Brand win will end tonight (Thursday) at 11:59 p.m. (Central Time).  The discounts are up to 40% with over 150 items on sale.  You can shop on my CM personal website HERE if you do not already have a consultant.  Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

  1. Those stamps are just beautiful. I had never heard of them before and will definitely have to buy some. ;)

  2. I csn't get enough of her stamps!! I have so many of them and silicone stamps are by far the stamps which give me the clearest, most detailed images. They are absolutely wonderful! I hope LeBlanche introduced some new stamps at CHA. I can't say enough about them!!

  3. Wow! Those pictures you took are amazing...they definitely ARE pieces of art! Thank you for introducing me to this line!

  4. I wanted to see Joan's gift more clearly so I clicked on that picture but that comes up with the picture of you and Joan. The picture of you and Joan doesn't get bigger at all.

    Silly me, I thought that kind of thing was automatic, but I guess you must have to code that in each picture!

    It looks like you had a great time!

  5. Thanks for sharing your photos of the stamps--I had not heard of them prior to your pics. They are indeed beautiful!
