seriously in love

Yes, I have fallen in love - with LaBlanche silicone stamps!!!!!!!!  After seeing Jill Foster's videos this past week, I just knew I wanted some of these beautiful stamps.  Lo and behold, my LSS is carrying them and I was able to purchase three of them today.  Now, believe me, I wanted every stamp she had in stock.  But, I am not independently wealthy.  So, until "my ship comes in", I will have to buy them little by little. 

Here is a card I made when I came home:

A lot of different distress inks went into the coloring of this image on plain white cardstock.  I added just a hint of sparkle on her buttons and flower on her hat and then went around the edge, too, with Stickles platinum glitter glue.  The seam binding was white and I colored it with broken china distress inks.  The piece was then layered to a Bazill tan card base. 

Can't wait to play with this one some more and the other two, also! 

Thanks for visiting.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Joy, this is lovely, you've colored it beautifully - love the background shading in particular! Do you mean by LSS - June? Please tell me yes! Can't wait to see what else you have.....I saw a bird yesterday by LaBlanche that might have to fly here to me, especially if we can get them locally! YAY!!

Just lovely Joy. I too like the La Blanche stamps. I have only two or three so far. They are very vintage looking
