A book Tim created using many techniques illustrated in A Compendium of Curiosities, with Grungeboard letters affixed to the cover.
Tim flipped through the book and pointed out that he took every photograph himself as he was crafting — all the better to show a crafter following along exactly what they want to see!
The second hour featured a lot of products that weren’t shown during the first hour, including three collections of Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers! They were available in Lights, Brights, and Basics (metallics plus black and white), with each kit containing 6 dabbers.
Tim demonstrated how to establish flow through the foam dabber top…
…and how to quickly cover large areas with no paintbrush necessary!
He also demonstrated a “pouncing” technique for a slightly heavier application of paint…
Tim also showed off how easy it is to use Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers to layer colors, and yet the dabber top does not become contaminated with the other color of paint! Just swipe the dabber on a scrap piece of paper or on the Non-Stick Craft Mat to quickly re-establish the flow of the original true color. How great is that?

Next up was everyone’s favorite glitter glue: Stickles!
Stickles were offered in three collections: All-Occasion (pictured), Holiday (reds and greens for Christmas plus oranges and purples for Halloween), and Metallics.
Tim showed off some holiday scrapbook layouts that used Stickles as festive accents on Grungeboard letters.
Even some Halloween tags got some bling thanks to Stickles!
Look how easy it is to apply Stickles to Grungeboard accents. It’s so much easier than applying regular glue and sprinkling with loose glitter (and not nearly as messy, either)!
Tim also demonstrated how Stickles self-levels. Even if a slight peak is left after application straight from the bottle, the formula will dry into a smooth dome. Perfect!
Next up was a Stamping Starter Set: a bottle of CleansIt stamp cleaner…
…and even a pad of Jet Black Archival Ink! With this handy kit, beginning stampers would have everything they need to get started on a new addiction.
The final item of Tim’s HSN debut were several sets of his stamps created with Stampers Anonymous. Here, Tim was demonstrating how clear stamps on acrylic blocks allow for perfect placement on your layout.
Congratulations to Tim for an awesome and very successful HSN debut!
Did you watch Tim on HSN? Did you learn anything new about the products shown, even if you already own and use them regularly?
For those of you who were unable to watch the show, fear not: HSN is showing some video clips from Tim’s debut on their website! Here is a list of product pages that feature clips from Tim’s appearance (the link to the video is underneath each product photo)…
Ranger Creative Director Tim Holtz made his debut on HSN yesterday as part of their first-ever 24-hour Craft Day. He did a great job, as evidenced by our Twitter and Facebook fans' claims of maxed-out credit cards during his first hour-long spot Here's a recap of the first hour!
Big news: Ranger's Creative Director Tim Holtz will be making his HSN debut tomorrow!! You can watch Tim demo Ranger products live on HSN on Tuesday, September 14, at 10am EST and again at 4pm EST. It's HSN's first-ever 24-hour Craft Day, and we at Ranger are so pleased that Tim will be a big part of it!
For our international friends and for those who won't have access to a TV at those times, you can also watch a live feed of the show on HSN's website, although sadly their player is not compatible with Apple computers.
Be sure to check out all of the great kits that will be for sale, too!
Today we’ll be shining a spotlight on Ranger’s Inkssentials
Watermark Resist Ink pad, a product that maybe doesn’t always get the attention
it deserves, but is truly awesome nonetheless! We’ve recently received some inquiries regarding techniques for using Watermark Resist, so we thought this would be a fun opportunity to show off all the great things that can be done with this clever little ink pad!
In this video, Ranger’s Marketing Coordinator Patti Behan demonstrates
how you can use Watermark Resist to create many different and interesting
effects. It can be used as a resist ink on gloss paper, or use it to create a watermarked image on dark colored papers. Did you know that Watermark Resist is an excellent ink for embossing as well? You can even use Watermark Resist to make incredibly beautiful multi-colored backgrounds for all your card-making and scrapbooking needs!
And in this video from CHA Summer 2009, Claudine takes her
technique to the next level by fashioning a gorgeous necklace from the resist image! Too clever or what?
If you’re just dying to get your hands inky, Lisa Dixon has
created two project tutorials featuring beautiful cards with sweet sentiments,
both of which employ techniques using the Inkssentials Watermark Resist Pad!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this look at the Watermark Resist pad. It’s simply ir-resist-able, is it not? (Sorry, we just couldn’t resist…. Hee hee!)
Which Ranger product would you like to see featured in our next “Ranger Spotlight” post? Perhaps you’d like to know more about techniques that can be done with an Inky Roller, or with Perfect Pearls, or with Glossy Accents? Let us know in the comments!
It's the first of the month and so we have updated our RangerInk.com homepage with a brand-new slideshow for your viewing pleasure! This month we are featuring two awesome new projects and a new video as well…
