Bats Halloween Blog Header

We wanted to share this awesome Retro Halloween Box Candy Colwell made with Tim Holtz Distress Products, Embossing Products, Archival Inks and more. Use it for a centerpiece on your Halloween Party Table, display it on your mantle, or how about using it as a treat holder for those all the little tricksters that visit your home. Another idea suggested by Candy is to pick a favorite side of the box and make a card. Can’t pick a favorite? We understand, you’ll just have to make them all! :)

NEW: Stickles Dry Glitter, Emboss It Dabber and Sticky Embossing Powder

July 10th, 2012

The CHA Summer 2012 show is next week!  It’s high time we start sharing some of the new Ranger products that will make their debut at the show, don’t you think?

Did you ever wish that you could take the same fabulous glitter inside Stickles Glitter Glue and just shake, shake, shake it all over everything you see?  Well, now you can: introducing Stickles Dry Glitter!  Available in 24 of the same Stickles shades you know and love, with all of the bling but none of the glue for the ultimate in sparkly versatility!  Shake it over Inkssentials Wonder Tape or over….

New Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder!  Just stamp out an image with embossing ink, shake Sticky Embossing Powder over top of it, and warm it up with the Heat It Craft Tool.  The powder will create a sticky surface, perfect for adhering Stickles Dry Glitter, foils, flocking, micro beads and more!

And what better way to ink up your stamps with embossing ink than to use the new Ranger Emboss It Dabber?  The convenient dabber top makes it easy to ink large stamps or even to cover entire surfaces!

For more information about Stickles Dry Glitter or the new Ranger embossing products, be sure to check out their official press releases!

"When I decorate my tree my favorite part is remembering the history of the ornaments. I love hanging the ones that my children made and seeing them now as adults and remembering how they were when they created the ornament. Haley will certainly be celebrated for years to come on her Christmas tree! Thanks for the warm fuzzies and for reminding us how special it is to craft with our children! PS I love the ornaments!"

Thanks, Karen!  We couldn't agree more, and we hope you have fun creating memories with the Ranger goodies that we will be sending you.
