Sweet Geisha Charlie


Little Blue Button is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. Our Grand Prize Winner will win a $10 Gift Certificate from Little Blue Button.  Love this sweet Geisha girl image and had to use it for a birthday card for my grand daughter.  I didn't have a die cut for this shape but tried my hand using a banner die cut cutting it part way then turning the point around and cutting the other end.  Surprisingly, it worked.




Little Blue Button Stamps started it's life in December 2012 as free digital stamps company "Digital designs by Olga".
Later in spring 2013 it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started it's work.
In the summer of 2013 we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.
Now I continue to create designs for digital stamps and printables by LBBS and clear stamps for Russian store by Tamara Startseva.
