Layering Stamps & Dies

This week's Learn at Lunch features stamps and dies from Concord & 9th.  I love the versatility of these sets - you can make a one layer card; you can make a 3-D card; you can use the negative space to create a frame - the possibilities are truly endless!  Stop in and learn which inks are best for these solid stamps, learn how to create the rounded 3-D petal effect (and which adhesives work best for that) and so much more.  So much information packed into a short span of time - and all FREE!  Stop in any time between 12 & 2 on Tuesday and see what we're up to!

Last Call on Discount Cards

Just a reminder that there are 3 days left to get your annual discount card.  Once January ends, they will no longer be available.  All you need to do to receive one is spend $25 in one purchase in January (on merchandise or classes) and you will receive savings for the rest of the year.  Have your card punched for each month of the year and be entered for a special drawing at the end of the year. Laure R won our $50 gift card last year.  Can't make it to the store over the next few days?  You can always call in to the store and make a purchase or buy a gift card.  One discount card per person. Need an idea for something to buy?  We have lots of new goodies. First, how about the sets of Fine Tec gold paints? We have been seeing more and more projects made with these super-pigmented paints and the results are amazing.  The colors show up on light or dark papers, so the possibilities are endless.   
Are you a fan of cats and/or dogs?  How about the fun papers, stamps, and dies from Photoplay?  They make great cards as well as scrapbook pages:
Laura swears by these gemstones in terms of number of colors, bang for the buck (only $4.50), and ease of storage.  The gemstones come in two sizes and there is even a new rainbow set of pearls.  
  If you would rather take a class , Laura has a 10 in 10 Valentine class next Saturday, February 4th where you will leave with 10 completed cards to tell people how much you care:
Or, do you prefer technique driven classes?  How about Laura's upcoming Distress Oxide class?  She has two dates scheduled in February:

Handy Little Tool!

This Tuesday's FREE Learn at Lunch demo features a handy little tool that you may never think about - the Perforator.  Angela is all about tools (and inks and stamps and .....) that have multiple uses, and the perforating tool is no exception!  We will use it to make a card AND gift rolled into one (a card that has a removable bookmark), but Angela will also show you how to use it to create evenly spaced "stitch marks" to frame your images.  Love it!

The Learn at Lunch demos are from 12 - 2 each Tuesday, so stop in for a few minutes and try something new!

Anticipating the New Ranger Products

Yes, it that time of year again.....  CHA!  The annual Craft and Hobby Association convention is about to start and that means all kinds of new products will be released from your favorite stamp companies.  We will try to keep you informed of what is new because we think you will be just as excited as we are.

Today we are going to talk about Ranger.  In particular, Tim Holtz and his new release.  Tim created a 30 minute sneak peek video to tell you about all the new goodies and how to use them.  If you don't want to watch a video that long, we are including a time stamp chart underneath the video so you can skip to the parts of the video that interest you.

You can also view the video directly on youtube here:

1:40 New colors of Distress Crayons
5:15 Distress Crayon Tin
6:50 New storage jars.  They also fit in the new Crayon Tin
8:30 New size of Collage Medium
11:05 New size of woodgrain cardstock.
12:50 New Designer accessory bag
*** 14:10  New Distress Oxide ink pads.  We anticipate these are going to be popular!

As always, Ranger previews their new products, but they won't start shipping till February.  Of course we are getting everything, so be on the lookout.  Have you seen a new item that you know you want?  Let us know and we will be happy to hold it for you when it comes in.  That way you won't miss the first shipment and have to wait till they ship more.  You can always call the store or email us at angelashappystamper@gmail.com to place your requests.
