My favorite thing from Live at CHA

La blanche stamps

La blanche stamps

I just yesterday learned about using La Blanche Silicone stamps with UTEE. I saw it at Live at CHA from Charity Wings. It was awesome, they melted UTEE and poured it all over the inked stamp. I of course immediately dug out my melting pot, which I haven't used since 2008 :-x and got to work. I tried it at first without enough UTEE so I remelted, but that left a bunch of black particles in the design. So I tried again with fresh UTEE and it worked much better. The key is having enough UTEE to pour all over the entire surface of the design, as you can see at the top I started to run out again. This was a really fun project! I am not sure what I'll do with my hedgehogs, but I craft like that, I find a technique I like, I make a few and then it sits, and then one day I will be looking for just the right embellishmet and Voila! I'm ready to use it :)
