Embellishments from LaBlanche Stamps!

Hello readers! Happy Sunday! I hope you've had a good start to your Month of March!

I have a fun tutorial for you today from Scraptime Videos at CHA! It's a short one, so I encourage you to watch it because the end product is gorgeous!!


Scrap Time - Ep. 732 – Embellishments from UTEE and LaBlanche Stamps! from Mark Giles on Vimeo.
Supplies to try this technique:



The instructions are really simple too!
  1.  Just ink your stamp with a permanent ink pad in a color you want- and while you're doing that begin melting some Utee Embossing Enamel in your Melting Pot.
  2.  Once you've let the ink dry a little, pour the liquid Utee over the stamp! (Don't worry- I was scared watching the video it would mess up the stamp too! But LaBlanche Stamps are made of a strong silicone so they're good to go!)
  3.  Wait until the Utee is cooled down, and then peel it off! You have yourself a glossy side, and a matte side to choose from! The extra Utee will break away easily, and you can save it to melt again at another time!
These pieces will be great colored in with Copics to make a stained glass effect, or you could keep them clear and place them on colored backgrounds!


Thanks for reading! After seeing all the different LaBlance Stamps- and the new ones from CHA! (see above!)- I can only imagine all the fabulous embellishments people could make! LaBlanche stamps are known for their ability to produce a crisp, clean stamp with a lot of detail.

Today for blog candy I have this fun little gnome called Jerome! He's from the CHA Collection that just was released March 1st! Check out more on Jerome and his other stamp friends on Jennifer McGuire's blog post! To win him, be sure to join our blog following and comment on this post!  Winner to be announced tomorrow, good luck!

-Michelle
