new open stock mini bottles
New for this CHA Show, Ranger is releasing the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Mini Acrylic Paints and Mini Art Mediums as open stock! 

Now you can purchase your favorite colors and mediums without needing to buy the large jars or an entire set of five mini bottles. 

The portable .5 oz bottles are perfect for sampling new colors, or for travel to classes and crops. Also what I really love about them is you can apply the paints and mediums directly from the needle-nose applicator tip to create dots, squiggles and lines, or use a paintbrush for wider coverage.

Here's a little video I did about the mini paints when they were first released last year in packs of 5, and now you can buy them individually! Hooray!

I'll be at the Ranger booth Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am - 1pm each day with lots of demos and samples and if you are attending the show I hope to see you there!

cha sneak peek - christmas stamps
Another CHA Show sneak peek for you today! I'm excited to share with you the Christmas Stamp set that I designed for Stampers Anonymous. This stamp set along with all my others will be at the Stampers Anonymous/Art Gone Wild booth at the CHA Show next week. So look for them there! 

I really enjoyed getting to doodle and draw all of these elements. My favorite from this set is the car with the presents on top! You can also use the small Christmas tree and put that on top of the car too for a different look.

I like to do a very simple style of stamping by stamping only in black on patterned paper but you could have a blast coloring in all of these images too. I added lots of snow using the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints in blank canvas and dotting it on with the applicator tip from the mini bottles.

If you are attending CHA make sure to stop by the Stampers Anonymous/Art Gone Wild booth!!

new stamp sneak peek - halloween
I'm excited to share a CHA show sneak peek with you!  I have a couple of new stamp sets by Stampers Anonymous which will be released at this show. 

Today I'll share with you the first set ---  Halloween! This is my first time doing seasonal stamps and it was a lot of fun! 

This set coordinates with my other stamp sheets by Stampers Anonymous. I had so much fun drawing these designs and thinking of all things spooky. I love the little silhouette in the frame and especially the old houses. I drew the houses from houses in my neighborhood!  The houses can be made to look spooky or not spooky, so you can get more use out of them than just for Halloween. Simply change up the colors you use and you could have Christmas houses or even Summer 4th of July houses! 

Here are a few samples that I created! I even used purple!! I never use purple  -- so let this day be marked in history! 

This stamp set along with all my others will be at the Stampers Anonymous/Art gone Wild booth at the CHA Show next week. So look for them there!

Tomorrow I'll share my new Christmas stamp set!!
