Get Creative with Ranger Inks & Supplies

In the crafting world, there's nothing quite as hot as paper crafts these days. From simple hobby crafts to sophisticated mixed-media artwork, the world of paints, inks, paper and all the embellishments that come with them are a playground for your imagination. 

In our Craft Attitude super store, we carry a wide array of Tim Holtz and Ranger products to add versatility and ease to your paper craft projects. Just take a look at a few of the inspiring projects we found, all created with Ranger Inks products:


Here are some items you can find in our super store to create wonderful projects like these:

Tim Holtz Distress Ink 1-by-1-inch ink pads in a variety of kits


Tim Holtz Distress Ink Re-inkers in a variety of colors


Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder and Ink


If you've ever worked with embossing powders or products that need to be dried quickly and without disturbing your project, you know that a regular blow dryer will never work. We've got Ranger Ink's Inkssentials Heat It Craft Tool, which provides a gentle air flow while keeping everything in place:


Mixed Media Monday: Valentine's Chocolate Box

We love this romantic idea from Anita Houston, made from a recycled cigar box.

1. I created a master board I loved that I can use over and over again. Craft Attitude let's me do that. How to create your master board:

2. You can scan or take a photo of your master board. I took the clearest photo I could.

3. I printed my master board digital image out on Craft Attitude using reverse image mode; as many prints as I wanted to use for lots of projects.

4. I lined the inside of the cigar box with the Craft Attitude print and edged with tissue tape.

5. I wanted texture on the outside of the box, so I dry embossed Tim's Swirls Texture Fade from Sizzix. I silver foil peeking through was wonderful. I love that Craft Attitude is embossable. 

6. I adhered the embossed Craft Attitude to the box, and lined it with Tissue Tape.

7. I used more of the Craft Attitude to make roses! I adhered it to Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art, and then die cut it with the 3D Flowers Bigz Die. I shaped them with my heat tool. These were so addicting! I made so many roses and rosettes. I LOVE this stuff!

8. I added wooden feet, lace and embellishments!
