RUN FAST… Distress Inks are in!

I am so thrilled.  These are new Distress Inks are delicious.

You can find them all HERE.  They will go fast, I am sure. I am off to get another set of each. (Yes, it is an addiction.  But not a bad addiction, right?)

Here is a color chart I did for you using THIS punch.  Forgive how sloppy they are.  Snow day here – so I had a little one helping me. :)  My faves?  Barn Door, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, Pumice Stone (think metal) and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks(ETA: BTW… if they are sold out, you can also pre-order them each or the whole set at a discount HERE.  They should get any day now, too.)

And I have gotten a lot of questions about the new Hero Hues Chalk Inks HERE. These are delicious, I tell ya.  I reach for them a lot.  They absorb for such intense color… fool-proof and great for beginners and advanced stampers.  Great for tone-on-tone dark backgrounds, too.  My faves?  I like them ALL. :)  The Snow is great on Kraft and dark cardstocks.

And the classy Shadow Inks HERE.  These are soft and pretty… great for tone-on-tone backgrounds on soft papers.  (Much better than Versamark.)  And good for stamping light images.  My faves?  Pool, Apricot, Sand and Leaf.

OK… hope that this helps you pick the inks you need.  I honestly use these inks above more than any other.  (Add in the old Distress Inks, too.)

See you later!

  1. Wow! What an awesome post today–This is exactly what I was needing! Love all those colors–My 2Peas wish list just doubled today! Give your darling little helper a big thank you hug for me. πŸ™‚

    So are Hero Arts chalk inks similar to Colorbox Chalk inks? More or less wet? Will they permanently stain clear stamps? I’ve tried stamping with my colorbox inks and didn’t like it much, but I am addicted to them for other things. While I’m asking, would you say the white chalk ink is your favorite white ink? I’m still searching for a favorite…

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    P.S. On Bachelor news, I also heard Jake picked Vienna, but from the clips on Monday I’m starting to wonder if he actually turned them both away which would be a shocker… I heard speculation they didn’t air some early friction between the girls with Vienna because they wanted to paint her in a better light since he picks her in the end (might explain why all the girls were so mad at her without the audience knowing why). I’m bummed with the whole thing…

  2. WOW Jennifer… great to see them all together… I can’t wait till the Distress inks get to NZ… I’m loving these inks…

  3. Thank you so much for giving us the examples of each color, BUT my husband is not thanking you! πŸ™‚ I want them all now!

  4. The colors are all so delicious looking. Thanks for showing us the colors, it’s always difficult trying to figure out the colors without seeing them on paper. TFS!!! πŸ˜€

  5. Thanks a lot, Jennifer! Seeing those colors one next to another makes it easier to pick out my favorites for my wishlist. Sorry I can’t have them all πŸ˜‰

  6. I’m just so happy that there are more colors!! You make all of the inks look so pretty, and that I just need all of them!! Thanks!

  7. So helpful to see the new ink colors… of course I want them all! So wishing that Michaels would get them in so I could use a coupon to help with costs!

  8. Those “shadow inks” look very interesting. I do have all of the “old” Tim Holtz distress ink colors, and have the new ones on my “wish list” for my birthday next month. I love using distress inks on all of my cardmaking projects, along with Hero Art Stamps!

  9. Ooh la la – I must have those colors. Thanks for sharing both the new distress inks and the Hero Arts inks. Off to shop.

  10. I just want you to know that you are AMAZING! The time you take to share things and teach things to us blows my mind. So I just want to say THANK YOU! For all that you do. It is truly appreciated! πŸ™‚ Your rock my friend! πŸ™‚


  11. I know I want all the Distress Inks. Problem is I still don’t have all the old colors. πŸ™ I have the names written down, and will gather them as I can. I never thought I would be a Distress Ink junkie – but I am. I also like the chalk inks – I want Snow for sure.

  12. Thanks for posting the color samples. It’s so hard to tell what color they are from the packaging. I picked up chipped sapphire tonight and am so excited to use it. I just know more colors will be taking up residence at my home soon! Have a great weekend.

  13. so pretty. *sigh* i think my husband might get jealous over my love of inks. it’s like when meg ryan in You’ve Got Mail blissfully states how she loves autumn, like a bouquet of sharpened pencils. Except for me it is a stack of inks. I love geting my hands dirty playing with them. Thanks for sharing!

  14. I have just started buying and using Copics…..thank you for all of the wonderful information and beautiful samples using these wonderful markers!!
