Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

Wow!  The huge CHA trade show just ended, and already boxes are starting to arrive!  It's going to be an exciting time at the Happy Stamper for the next several months as new products trickle in!  Be sure to bookmark our What's New page and check in regularly to see what the Happy Helpers have unpacked! 

New from Ranger!

Distress Markers


Tim Holtz is at it again!  His newest addition to the Distress line of products is Distress Markers.  They are supposed to be shipping sometime later this month (keep your fingers crossed) and will be available individually in 37 colors or in this set with a handy storage tube.  If you'd like for us to pull a set for you, please call us or send us an email. 


What makes these markers unique?  First of all, they match the Distress Ink Pads, Stains, etc.  They are a water-based marker, so they blend beautifully, and you can use them directly on your stamps.  But more importantly, they are translucent so you can color directly over the top of color you've already laid down - blending and shading is a breeze and you don't have to worry about working from light to dark.  Dark to light works, too!  Intrigued?  Stay tuned for a new class by our fabulous Laura featuring these markers.  It will be scheduled soon! 

Magenta Workshops with Nathalie

Alcohol Inks Magenta Style
We are so excited to announce the return of Nathalie Metivier from Magenta!  Nathalie is an incredible teacher (plus, it's just fun to sit and listen to her lilting accent), and she will be sharing her tips and techniques with us in two all new classes.

On Thursday, March 29, Nathalie will be teaching the Alcohol Inks workshop from 10:30 - 1:30 followed by the Creative Coloring Workshop later that evening from 6:00 - 9:00 PM.   

Creative Coloring with Magenta  
In addition to these fabulous workshops, Nathalie will have a selection of Magenta stamps, papers, cork and chipboard elements and more as part of her traveling trunk show.  Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the industry giants, and to shop from their huge selection of merchandise!  You don't have to be registered for the workshops in order to shop the trunk show, however if you take one of the classes, your shopping is 10% off that day, including the trunk show!  Wahoo!

Fred "the Fishboy" Mullett Returns!

Fishboy Returns
If you missed out on Fred's creative chaos the last time he was in town, DO NOT make that mistake again.  His classes are part mad-scientist, part-iron chef (or some strange combination thereof) and will leave you feeling like an artist extraordinaire! 
We've added another class since I first sent the information regarding his workshops, so the schedule is now the following:
Friday, April 27 - The Elegant Mess
Sunday, April 29 - The Rest of the Mess

We're expecting his class samples soon (the photo above may be cute, but it's not informative as to the content of the classes, right???)  As soon as the class samples arrive, we'll put them up in the shop as well as on the web site, so check back soon.  Fred limits his workshops to 12 participants, so don't delay!  These classes will fill quickly!
New from CHA

Faber-Castell wins the award for being the first to ship their newly released CHA product!  Today, we received 15 new colors of Gelatos (water-colors) and a new set of neutral Big Brush markers.  We also received their fabulous pencil sharpener that is portable and works with virtually all sizes of pencils (including the Faber-Castell watercolor pencils which are triangular in shape).  If you've never played with the Big Brush markers or Gelatos, consider taking Angela's Technique Tags workshop featuring these two products.  The class is March 6 and is available both day and evening!  Don't forget to check our What's New page regularly for the latest new product arrivals!
