Ranger Blog: Ranger News
We hope everyone had a fun and crafty weekend! Dyan Reavely, Kaz Hall, and Kate Crane spend the weekend demoing Ranger’s latest projects at the Stitches Trade Show in the UK. They managed to find some time in between all of their hard work to snap a few shots to share with everyone! How great do they look?!?
In addition to the new Dylusions Ink Sprays colors, Dyan also has new stamps and stencils that she will be debuting at CHA this year.
When you pickup your new ink sprays be sure to try them out on Dyan’s new Dylusions Stencils! These stencils are available in 3 new stylish silhouettes for endless possibilities.
On the stamping side of things, Dyan’s Rubber Stamp line has 6 new additions – Dy’s Alphabet, Mischievous Malcom, Monster Mash, Ocean Backgrounds, Say It How It Is, and Under The Sea, but that’s not all!
The brand new line of Dylusions Couture Collection Clear Stamps will debut in February. These 9×5 footprint stamps will be available in 3 large sets and 1 mini set that contains all of the images. To make using these new clear stamps even easier, we are also launching the new Dylusions Journal Block. This clear stamp block was designed to perfectly fit the new Couture collection and also features a wavy edge that can be used as a template for creative journaling.

A little over a month ago we announced the 12 Tim Holtz® Distress Inks that were previously released as Seasonal Inks are now permanently available in both ink pads and reinkers. Taking a look at the feedback everyone gave us online, we saw that you LOVED this release, but many of you called for stains.
Since we are in the business of spreading joy, we are excited to announce that now Tim Holtz® Distress Stains™ are also available in these new colors. That means, starting this month, you can buy Distress Stains™ in Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Iced Spruce, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, and, of course, Gathered Twigs!
Just like last time, we are celebrating this release by giving you an opportunity to win some of these new colors. In order to be entered into this contest, simply link to a photo of a project you’ve made that features Distress Stains™ on your blog or on your favorite image hosting service (such as Flickr) and we will select a few random entries to win a grab bag that features some of the new Distress Stain™ colors!
Everyone here at Ranger would like to take a moment to extend our thoughts and support to everyone that was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. As residents of New Jersey ourselves, we personally understand the difficulties and frustrations associated with rebuilding your homes, businesses, and lives.
As you may know, we felt the effects at our NJ headquarters and are happy to report that things are beginning to return to normal. We have resumed production and have started shipping out product again. We hope that these efforts will assist storeowners in returning their business to normal as well. We are even ready to continue with some upcoming product releases we had scheduled, that we know you’ll be excited to hear about in the next week.
