Happy Veteran's Day to those who serve or have served our Country! Many of you know my husband, Paul is a Veteran - Retired from the U.S. Army after serving his 20 years - thanks and love you Man! Also some of you may know that myself and the MOCHA Stamp Group here in New Jersey have donated over 200 cards to Operation Write Home (OWH) in the past and continue to do so. That being said I was extremely pleased to do a couple of cards in the OWH Veteran's Day 11-11-11 Blog Hop that Ranger was participating in. Please check out the OWH Veteran's Day 11-11-11 Blog Hop here to check out all of the participating companies: http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2011/11/111111-veterans-day-bloghop.html You can also go to the Ranger Blog and check out all of the fabulous cards here:

Hey there - For those of you that don't know - I work part-time at Ranger Ink. I help out mostly in the Art Department making kits for some of Tim Holtz and Claudine Hellmuth's classes and help prep for CHA classes and make and take it's. A while back they had some of the Ranger Art and Customer Service employees get together and have a Craft Night. Needless to say Ranger Craft Night was a huge success and they've just let me know that I have a couple of cards up on the Ranger blog. Please check it out! Here's the link: http://blog.rangerink.com/blog/2011/10/more-ranger-craft-night-projects.html Enjoy! Cindy

So I discovered this totally by accident while cleaning up a non-stick craft sheet that had Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy... After the Crackle Paint dries, using the craft scrapper to clean off the sheet and I found it looked a lot like snow!! I used to buy it in the store, but now I can make my own with products I have on hand. I made this cute little Snow Girl by putting Wonder Tape on white cardstock and die cutting with a Sizzlets die. Then using a craft knife and taking off portions of the tape at a time I filled in with micro beads and then my "homemade" snow. I think she turned out pretty cute! Try it yourself and let me know how it works for you!

I have to say I completely LOVE the new Fall Distress Colors by Ranger in Seedless Preserves, Ripe Persimmon and Gathered Twigs!! I have been so motivated to create since these colors came out. So vibrant and beautiful! I used Gathered Twigs on the "wood" part of the Dress form die and then cut a piece of sticky-back canvas and colored it with Seedless Preserves (left) and Ripe Persimmon (right). Then I colored some white cardstock with the 3 colors listed above and Peeled Paint (using DTP and sponge applicator techniques for shade variation) and punched out leaves for the "skirt". I stamped the Inkadinkadoo"fall colors" stamp using Gathered Twigs and mounted everything on TH Holiday series paper from Idea-ology. A small piece of printed mulberry paper and 3 deep purple rhinestones (left) or 3 pearls (right) completes the card. All other products are from Ranger. Enjoy.
This is a simple Kraft Tag stamped with Picket Fence Stain using a Magenta Stamp then lightly colored in places with some Copic markers. This project was done in June 2011 using products from Ranger. I love the watercolor look of stamping with stain!
This was a Melt Art project that I did in June 2011. The flowers patterned paper covered with sticky-back canvas then cut out using a Sizzix die. Then the patterened paper side is dipped into melted UTEE with To Dye For (mixed primary colors to get green). After they were cooled I punched a hole in the middle with a Crop-a-dile so I could use brads to make the flower layers. All products used including the tag are Ranger. Embellishments are from the TH Idea-ology line.
