The class is entitled,"Build-A-Robot", and our junior stampers will learn about working with clear acrylic stamps from Stampendous, along with acrylic blocks, ink pads, markers, and adhesives. They will be stamping robot parts, coloring them, cutting them out, and assembling them in various positions and working in various mediums to make cards, pictures, puppets, and storyboards.
The class price is only $15, and your children will have lots of fun learning about stamping, learning how to take care of their supplies, and making fun robots they can use for all types of decorations and make believe. The class is designed for stampers ages 8-12, but if your child is younger than 8, and still interested, a parent must accompany them to the class to help them with cutting and other techniques.
All supplies for this class will be furnished by the instructor, so if you are interested in this SUPER RAD Class for your child, that guarantees to be Fun, Fun, Fun, give us a call at 210-342-6217 and reserve a space today.
I also wanted to mention some of the New merchandise that has come into the store this past week. We received a shipment of Character Construction Acrylic Stamps, and if you are a follower of Catherine Moore's work, you will want to see the new line of stamps we received. We also received the Spring/Easter shipment of new stamps from AMuse, with the cute flop eared bunny in the carrot car, along with the New Snail stamp with the words, "snail mail!" We also got in a few of the Holly Berry House Stamps, that let you create layered medallions in various shapes. We got in two sizes of crosses, and two styles of large decorated eggs for Easter that would make wonderful cards, gifts, or ornaments.
So come on by the store and see what is New for Spring at Stamp Antonio Arts. Hope to see you soon!

Inks that dry slowly for embossing, inks that dry quickly, inks for stamping on paper, inks for stamping on glass, metals, and fabrics. We have them all here at Stamp Antonio. And each one is as unique as it's name. This will be one of our ongoing demonstrations that will be appearing on the class calendar on a regular basis from now on. It is a basis for any type of stamping, and needs to be discussed and talked about, so you will be familiar with all of the types and what they can do. Our basic Rubber Stamping 101 class will also be appearing on a regular basis, so you can learn all of the basics, and feel comfortable when picking up a rubber stamp and ink pad.
Our New Class Calendar for March is up on the web site, and ready for your inspection. The samples are also up at the store, so you can see what we will be making in the classes, before you sign up! We have many "special" classes this month, including our first Kids Class, on Saturday, March 14, 2009 during Spring Break. Jane Smith will be instructing the "Junior Stampers" on how to handle the stamps and inks, and make wonderfully F U N Robots of all kinds in our Robots Galore class from 10:30 to 12:30 pm.
We will also be welcoming Theresa Laurent, from Memory Box Stamp Company. She will be bringing a Trunk Show of Memory Box products, along with teaching 4 fabulous seasonal card classes on the weekend of March 21 & 22, 2009. For information on any of these classes, you can call us at 210-342-6217 weekdays between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. You can also call that number to sign up for any of these wonderful classes, (class space is limited) so call to reserve your space today!

Susan is such a talented and wonderful teacher, if you have never taken one of her classes, you should do so! You will be pleased at the work you walk away with. She takes you through each project step by step, and of course, encourages you to step out side your comfort zone and create a work that you would be proud of. There are many students that follow her from class to class, because she is so patient, and encourages you to continue even when you question your own ability.
She also has another watercolor class coming up on March 28, 2009, which is a little more challenging because of it's size, and it is called "Nana's Cottage." The stamp that is the basis for the piece, is also our Stamp of the Month for March at Stamp Antonio. If you think you might want to take this class from Susan, you might want to stop by the store in advance and pick up this stamp while we have it in stock. To take advantage of our Item of the Month special price, you must come into the store and make a purchase. With the cash register receipt from that sale, you must return to the store on another day, make another purchase of at least $10.00 and then with your coupon at the bottom of your receipt you can recieve the Item of the Month for 40 percent off the regular retail price.
Don't wait until the end of the month to come and get your Item of the Month! We have been know to sell out before the end of the month. We order the same amount of specials each month, and when they are gone. . . they are gone!
Susan also teaches our peg stamp classes from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. Their peg stamps are unique, in that they are one of the only companies that adhere their rubber stamp images to the end of a round peg, similar to a dowel stick. We are the only store in San Antonio that sells Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps, and they are one of our most popular styles of stamps because of their unique shape and size. Come by and see the beautiful sample cards Susan has made for us using these one of a kind stamps.
We hope to see you soon, and as always, if you have any questions or comments about something you see or hear about on our web site or blog, just come by the store, or give us a call. Our store number is 210-342-6217 and we are open daily, Monday through Saturday, 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Wednesday's we are here from 10:00 am till 9:00 pm.
