The Scoop on the La Blanche Stamps--NEW @ Your Maine Stamper


We have a new line of stamps at Your Maine Stamper from the German company La Blanche.  These are high quality stamps that offer easy stamping with minimal pressure.  Their highly detailed images reproduce beautifully!  The unique design of these stamps is that the top of the stamp, the part you hold, is extremely lightweight foam and the stamp itself is heat-resistant silicone.  And the price is right!!!--much less than a wood-mounted stamp of the same size!
This is what the packaging says about these unique stamps:
  • Ensures amazingly exact results
  • Allows for fantastically detailed designs
  • Extremely heat resistant

These stamps work best with Archival Ink, VersaFine Ink, and Staz-on Ink.  Use a really smooth paper or you can stamp on glossy paper using the Staz-on Ink. 
The heat-resistant quality lets you work with hot products like UTEE and beeswax without damaging the stamp.
And cleanup is a breeze!  Just a little water spritzed on and all of the ink wipes off with a paper towel!  Or use your stamp scrubber or regular cleaners. 
Here is what a stamp looks like.

This is the same stamp with the ink applied.
What great detail!

This is a sampling
of the many stamps
available.

Here are more stamps.

Marigold

Key with Script

The Raven

Everybody's favorite:
The Hedgehog



































We can order any stamps you want if we don't have what you are looking for in stock.  Just ask to see the catalog and place an order!  We even have a stamp in the store that you can try out!  Think you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE these stamps!!!

Welcome to a very special week on the Outside the Box blog!  We are participating in a blog hop with Creative Imaginations and will be featuring all kinds of great ideas for using Memory Box products with Twinkling H2O paints.  For those of you who aren't familiar with Twinkling H2O's, they are fantastic metallic watercolor paints that can be used directly on rubber stamps as well used for coloring in your stamped images.  Every day this week, there will be three posts on the Outside the Box blog as well as 2 posts a over on the Creative Imaginations blog site.  Be sure to "hop" on over there frequently!
Now, how about a chance to win some goodies?  Each day this week, you will have a chance on the Outside the Box blog to win one of the Luminate Petite Twinkling H2O kits.  Today's prize is the Basic Rainbow kit.  For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on the Memory Box design team posts.  Suzz, Anne, and Angela are posting samples on the Outside the Box blog today (Monday, April 4th).  Leave a comment on each of their posts, and you will have a total of three entries.  A winner will be selected tonight at 11:59pm EST, so you need to move quick!
