Tim Holtz Seasonal Distress & Marker UPDATE

Exciting news for all of us who love to get inky....Tim Holtz has added 3 new Spring colors to his distress palette! The Spring Seasonal Distress Inks join Fall and Winter in the Seasonal lineup of color add ons.

The added colors are a delightful thing for us as stampers! In fact, not just stampers, but art journalers, altered artists, scrapbookers - anyone who enjoys getting inky can work and play with these fresh new colors.

It's an exciting addition for me not just because Spring is here, but I have 2 Mother's day, 6 Birthday, 1 New Baby, 1 Wedding and a Graduation card on my "to create" list next week and these colors are going to be a splendid fit for every single theme.

Although Squeezed Lemonade is my favorite (I'm a yellow "junkie"), there have been roars of excitement over the Peacock Feathers. It's a delightful Teal. Shaded Lilac is a beautiful hue of purple that is spot on for the season.

Thank you to Tim and to Ranger industries! We spoke LOUDLY... and they HEARD! Reinkers are here for all of the seasonal distress inks! Not only Spring, but also Fall and Winter.

We only received a portion of our order and suspect that these babies are going to be hard to come by for the time being. If you need these like I need these, please don't hesitate to get them now before they are gone. Disappointed customers make my heart heavy- and the best way to not disappoint is to be able to get these to you pronto!

As of now, we are shipping the Winter and Spring Ink pad Sets.  To celebrate the coming of Spring, the Winter Set of ink pads is on SALE HERE! We also have refills in stock for Fall, Winter, and Spring sold as sets and sold individually. The Fall ink pad set is sold out until further notice.

What's your favorite pick of the new Spring Lineup?

Tim Holtz has a video introducting the new lineup found at  Is it just me, or is he just ALWAYS ALWAYS fun and charismatic to watch :)  The birds chirping is such a cool touch.



We have been stocking our distress marker slots in the warehouse slowly but surely as the Tim Holtz Distress Markers file into the warehouse. Most marker colors are available sold individually right now, and we do have several packs of 6 available. Picket Fence is hot on demand and will probably sell out shortly. However, the set of 37 markers is still in preorder status as we work to fill the orders we have in house on a first come, first shipped basis.

We hope to be able to complete the rest of the preorders over the next few weeks and take the Set of 37 off preorder status.

The Distress Markers are a wonderful double ended marker filled with water based ink in Tim Holtz Distress color palette. They are ideal for stamping, coloring images, blending to watercolor, and many other crafty applications. I personally love their ease of use and affordable price point!

Thanks so much for your patience during this exciting time!

  1. How can I pick a favorit with 3 soo great colors?? I just can´t as I really love them all, they´re soo cool.

  2. Love these new ink colors & I'm thrilled that there are now reinkers available. My fave color this round is peacock feathers.

  3. I can't wait to get the new spring set just love the shaded lilac! *denise*

  4. Love them, great colors, wish I could buy them all :)

  5. I love the peacock feathers best; but the yellow and purple are just beautiful, too!

  7. You are going to be busy this week! lol I'm really into the Peacock!

  8. I'm lovin the Peacock Feathers!

  9. Those new colours are beautiful! And those markers sound great.

  10. I love the new colors but that Peacock Feathers is my fave of the 3.

  11. Cool colours!! Love the peacock feathers.

  12. I am so glad Ranger came out with the re-inkers. I did not buy the last seasonal set because there weren't any re-inkers. Colors look fabulous!!!

  13. I think I would love these! But we really do need a magenta or cerise pink!

  14. Hmm, it's hard to choose between the lemonade and the peacock feathers. But now I'm nervous...I placed an order, but if you're not going to be ablaze to get thm, maybe I should have just gone down to my LSS. Yikes! I don't want to have to wait a long time! I only ordered from ou guys b/c you also had the micro glaze, which I needed. Any idea how long shippings going to be??

  15. Isn't it wonderful to have a product that is so easy to love. Who doesn't love playing with DIs. I must say I'm looking forward to Squeezed Lemonade. A subtler yellow. Sounds scrumptious.

  16. Ordered all today. Can't wait to play.

  17. Gorgeous colours ,,, can't wait for mine to arrive !! I think they will probably be somewhere flying over the pond by now :-) I am looking forward to the distress markers too ,, hopefully they won't be too far behind ,,, :-)
