Mini Distress Sets 10-12

Published by at 8:03 am under Ranger,tim holtz

Woohoo!!! They are here… the completion to these ADORABLE Mini Distress Inks. Sets 10-12.  So happy that they are now available in all 48 colors.

Thanks to Tim Holtz and Ranger, I am able to give one set away! 🙂


For the card I created, I wanted to play with the Ranger Texture Paste since one of the properties I absolutely love-love-love about it is that it is inkable.

I didn’t want my paper to move around when I applied the paste, so I used Tissue Tape to temporarily adhere my black cardstock to the back of the stencil.

I flipped it over and applied the paste to my (current) favorite stencil… Gothic.  I use the back of the palette knife to apply the paste.  Spread it all over like you are frosting a cake. (I hear that’s how you frost a cake anyway… I’m not much help in the kitchen… well, except help EAT the food 🙂 )

 I seriously love the magic that happens when you lift that stencil up to see the gorgeous pattern.BeFunky_2014-08-14 232.jpg

Then, I took Milled Lavender and applied the ink directly onto the paste.  I did the same with the Tattered Rose, Chipped Sapphire and Shabby Shutters.  After the ink was down, I used my mini ink blending tools to blend the colors around the pasted pattern. (I got so excited that I forgot to take a picture of that step)BeFunky_2014-08-15 05

 I stamped one of the quotes from Attic Treasures in Shabby Shutters and lightly “kissed” certain parts of the stamp with the chipped sapphire.BeFunky_2014-08-15 05.jpg

 I love how the two colors go so well together.BeFunky_2014-08-15 06.jpg

 And I HAD TO add perfect pearls to the project… It’s my latest addiction.  My stamp-a-stack girls (or stamp-and-snack as tim thought it was called) can attest to my obsession. 🙂BeFunky_2014-08-15 062.jpg

 It’s hard to capture the pretty pretty shimmer that it adds to the project….BeFunky_2014-08-15 06

I inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy and put it on black cardstock for matting. I attached a hinge clip to the top of the quote.

I applied all of the pieces, as well as the wordband (that is adhered with the linen ribbon)  to Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock.

And here it is all put together.  I loooove the INKED textured paste.
BeFunky_2014-08-15 063.jpg

One thing I loved about making this card is that I stepped out of my comfort zone when it came to color combination.  I seem to always reach of the same colors for most of my projects.  But, it was fun playing with other colors.

Please leave a comment and tell me what your favorite color combos are for a chance to win a set of the new mini distress inks. 🙂  I want to try some of your new color combos.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

      I have never used texture past before and it looks beautiful, but what I REALLY am dying to try are the 2 colors you have used together to stamp your phrase-the SHABBY SHUTTERS and CHIPPED SAPHIRE-I love the combination! We have been fortunate to be blessed with our first grandchild, a little girl-Kinley Grace- July 20th- and I have a picture of her covered in a spearmint colored blanket that I think would be perfect for this project!!!

    Mooie kaart met de pasta en dan de inkt.
    Ik houd van verschillende tinten in een kleur te gebruiken.
    Voor de kleintje meer in primaire kleuren.
    Ik deze inkt ook in Holland te koop, want ik kan hem nergens vinden.
    Met andere inkt soorten gaat het lastig dat mengen.

  24. AKAST says:

    The background colors are excellent!! Iced spruce/Dusty concord/Antique linen color combo. Mini distress inks are the best! They’re so versatile and cute.

  25. Susan Delgado says:

  32. Donna Gibson says:

    Oh, do I love the texture paste on that black background! I need to get me some of that! My favorite color combination that comes to mind is tattered rose and frayed burlap. I’ve used it several times and it results in the perfect vintage pink!

    • Donna Gibson says:

      Correction! The combination is Victorian Velvet and Pumice Stone not the one I listed above. The one listed above is the one that Tim used on the June 2012 tag and I didn’t have those colors so I had to substitute. That’s how I discovered it!

  33. Labelle says:

    Hi Joy – Love the card. Some of my favorites are Milled Lavender, Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw. Thanks for the opportunity to win a set.

  39. Eva says:

    The card is fabulous. I like the white paste on the black paper. I don’t have many distress inks, so I couldn’t try so many color combination, but until now I love the wild honey mini distress ink with some tone of yellow like mustard seed.

  40. SusanK says:

    What an absolutely GORGEOUS card! I love the starkness of the white paste on the black tag. My newest color combo I’ve been trying is peacock feathers, picked raspberry and pine needles. Would love to win some new distress minis…keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

  49. Deb L says:

    Beautifully done Joy! Love the colored texture paste on black! Try antique linen, seedless preserves and shaded lilac.

  50. One of my favorite sayings. So true. Why do I love minis? Why do I love distress inks?
    They are so versatile. You can use them so many ways, There are so many different effects you can’t get with other inks. Their particular way of reacting with water is so inspiring. I have to say I don’t have a single favorite colour. It depends on my mood and the ‘look’ I am trying to achieve. I love minis because I can take ALL of them in such a small space. I love it.
    I am SO happy the last three sets are finally available.

  51. HelenBH says:

    I think all the colors have their place in my creative process. Looking forward to looking at festive berries, bundled sage and chipped sapphire.

  52. Cheryl T. says:

    I love your projects. Texture paste…I must try it out. It looks really fun! Thanks for the inspiration!

  53. Linda Lynn says:

    I like your card. It is always hard for me to work with colors that are not my norm. The perfect pearls is a great touch.

  54. Megan S says:

    Beautiful card! Distress inks are so fun, I can’t remember what crafting was like before they came along! My favorite combo is probably Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves and Scattered Straw. Thank you for the chance to win!

  55. Amante del Papel says:

    is a stunning work, thanks for the opportunity to win, my favorite set was number 12!

    • Vanisa says:

      I am currently fniishing up my BA in Child Development and Family Studies and thus far I have only work with children from 2 weeks to adolescent while helping support their families. The Physician that I would want to work under is an Obstetrics (OB) because they are in direct contact with pregnant women and their children during pregnancy. I would choose this particular specialty for a variety of reason such as having the opportunity to see individuals become parent for the first time, seeing how much love is surrounded in the process, being there to help the mothers while there in a vulnerable state. One of my main reasons is because I think that the whole birthing process is fascinating and to be able to be a part of family’s lives while going through this process, I imagine to be extremely rewarding.A of physician specialty that I would least want to work with would be a psychiatrist. Although I believe that psychiatrist do some spectacular work and help a lot of people through difficult situations I personally believe that this job would be to emotionally draining and overwhelming for me. This makes me question whether or not I would be able to handle it. When I set out to do a job my goal is to do the best that I can and I don’t feel that I could successfully do this job to the best of my ability.

  56. Memoriesbymanda says:

    I’m honestly no good at choosing colours to work together! With the mini packs the colour combos are chosen for you. My favourite of the new ones would be #9 ( sage etc). Thanks for the step by step for your card – it’s lovely.

Let’s see… (looking over there right now)… Broken China, Barn Door and Mowed Lawn catch my eye. 🙂

    I keep my mini sets together because they come in such great color combinations, but you can combine any of the Distress Ink colors and they look amazing. My favorite color is Wild Honey and Chipped Sapphire is probably my second favorite. They make a striking color combo. I think this is a gorgeous combination you have here. Your card is beautiful and I love the shimmer of the perfect pearls.

  141. Viktoriya says:

    wow, very cool! great card!

  142. Linda P says:

    I love the look of tumbled glass, peacock feathers and a little broken china or chipped sapphire. Love your project! I can’t wait to try my stencils with the texture paste.

  143. Linda g says:

    Love how you did the quote, kissing with a 2nd color and then doing the perfect pearls over the top! I must get those out where I can see and remember to use them!
    Thanks for sharing your card!

  144. The white on black is very cool and the mins make it so easy to colorize, love it!

  145. Patty says:

    Beautiful card! My favorite combo is Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, and Picked Raspberriies

  146. Jen Clark says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. That card is stunning!!!! I cannot wait to try this! I’ve used light modeling paste (which I’ve found actually does a really decent job absorbing the color too) and done this exact thing, with the stencils…except it was on *white* card stock, so…it’s a totally different effect. I LOVE it on the black cardstock, because you totally see just the color on the paste, and what a “wow” factor! And I haven’t done the Perfect Pearls technique in a long time…but I used to love doing that…you know how you get your brain so full of techniques that you just forget some of the simplest ones…and they are the ones that often give such a big impact? Love!!

    Oh, and I recently tried Seedless Preserves, Shaded Lilac, with some Tarnished Brass stain thrown in for accent – TOTALLY not my colors – saw it on SSS’s blog – but it turned out GORGEOUS!

  147. Kim C. says:

    Lovely project. Thanks for a chance to win some of the great new minis. They are the best.

  148. LynneZ says:

    Loving your technique. Thanks for sharing.

  149. susan says:

    Love the technique and the inks.

  150. Marilyn L. says:

    All I can say is WOW! The black CS with the Texture Paste is incredible!

  151. {vicki} says:

    I love the blues and oranges

  152. Sue says:

    Vintage photo and festive berries is my fave combo at the moment! Will be trying out that stencil now! Pick me pick me! Sue

  153. Noreen says:

    I love the way you did the background colors! I love the blues and reds.

  154. Miriam Prantner says:

    Loving the inking of the paste, great card! I’m loving gray with anything right now.

  155. Darcy Ekstrom says:

    Tattered Rose, Iced Spruce and Brushed Corduroy are three of my favorite colors of Distress Inks and I can’t wait to try this technique with the Texture Paste out. Thank you so much for sharing!

  156. Cynthia Myers says:

    I don’t have a set color combination that I use over and over again. I like to take several inks from the same color family, say blue, and use them together, with one ink not from that color family for a slight variation.

  157. Lynda says:

    I’m not one to give you advice on color combos because I just don’t have enough experience yet! But I can tell you for sure that I really like your card!

  158. Andrene says:

    Lately I’ve been using a lot of the picked raspberry, spiced marmalade and squeezed lemonade to create ombre card backgrounds. Your background is stunning! I’m going to have to try this!

  159. Gloria L. says:

    My favorite combo? It changes often, but right now it’s scattered straw, rusty hinge, and gathered twigs. Beautiful card!

  160. I really like what you did with the paste and inks! My favorite combo is chocolate and raspberry, but as far as Distress Inks go, I’ve recently stepped out of MY comfort zone and discovered Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and Frayed Burlap to be an appealing combination. I would love to win some of these new great colors in the MINIS!

  161. Linda Tupper says:

    How so beautiful. I so love the colors of the sentiment and the shimmer. Love the background and the colors. Lovely. I love broken china and tea die with a green or mustard seed.

  162. Jessica H. says:

    Oh my. The textured background is gorgeous!! I’m pretty new to distress inks so I don’t have a favorite color combo yet! Right now, I’ve been into using tumbled glass with broken china and faded jeans.

  163. Carol burns says:

    Broken china and spiced marmalade would make a statement.

  164. Rachael Brown (Brat) says:

    I love the fall combo of gathered twigs and concord grape! so rich and delish!

  167. Jessica Bavier says:

    This is so pretty! My absolute favorite color combo is seedless preserves, picked raspberries, and peacock feathers. 🙂

  168. Gail Jenson says:

    Love the texture paste on the black and the color combinations are beautiful. I hope I am one the lucky ones to win some minis so I can try this. Thanks

  169. Gavi Slutzkin says:

    Sooo pretty! Loved the multi colored look on the texture paste. Thanks for the giveaway!

  170. Debbie B says:

    Loving the simplicity of this one. I have yet to experiment with many colors as I have only a few now. Could use a few more. Saving all my change daily to collect all the colors. 🙂

  171. Laura Strack says:

    Joy, What a gorgeous card! I love your color combo on your sentiment. That stencil is so pretty too and the texture paste looks awesome. Thanks so much for the pretty card idea and fab giveaway! I so want the new minis!!

  172. Michele says:

    I love festive berries and squeezed lemonade together, bright summery look.

  173. Joy, this is such a gorgeous card – love your design, all the texture and your beautiful inking! Thanks for the great tutorial and chance to win some beautiful distress inks:) My favorite color combination is blue and green with a bit of white or orange or grey thrown in!

  174. Marianne B in AZ says:

    I like some of the lighter colors. Right now, I am thinking Spun Sugar and Broken China.

    By the way, I am waiting for some texture paste to get here in the mail. I can’t wait to pay with it!

  175. diana says:

  182. Sandra ltb says:

    love using perfect pearls – looks like you have done magic when applied.
    so many colors look great together – Tammy used a beautiful combination on her tag – tattered rose, milled lavender, bundled sage, and squeezed lemonade – lovely soft color. Broken china and peeled paint look good together as well.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
    Sandra ltb

  183. Teri Terrific says:

    • Rosa says:

      A psychiatrist is a pyasicihn who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. I have a bachelor’s degree in the social services field. For several years, I have worked with children who have been diagnosed with mental disorders. It is upsetting to see children victimize at an early age and even more disturbing to see them as predators as early as 5 years of age, however knowing that I am doing my part to assist them in becoming functioning youths and adults is rewarding. The empathy, confidentiality and maturity of a medical assistant are definitely needed in this area. I enjoy establishing a rapport with these clients and helping them to find adequate coping skills to deal with their disorders, therefore I would like to work for a psychiatrist.I would not like to work for an emergency pyasicihn for several reasons. I will explain a few. Patients who come to the emergency center typically have serious injuries or trauma. I would not like to have my mind constantly focused on who is coming thru the door and how sever the prognosis is. Knowing myself, I know that would be my focus and I would not be very productive. Also, in the emergency room the staff has to be prepared for anything, I would prefer an area that focuses on a particular specialty. Most importantly, I do not wish to see excessive amounts of blood loss on a regular basis. Actually, not even a minimal amount of blood loss on a regular basis. Giving my opinion and thoughts about this specialty, I would not be an effective employee.

  185. Michele aka Goat Girl says:

    I’ve been making Xmas cards lately so the combo I’ve been using is festive berries, peeled paint and gathered twigs distress inks! Love them together!

  186. Karen D says:

    Milled lavender, Tattered rose and Bundled sage are a combination that I really like. I love to use, pinks and greens. I really liked the way that you coloured the texture paste in your project.

  187. Pamela Bennett says:

    I love the effect you achieved with the Texture Paste on this gorgeous card! the colours are a wonderful combination, I will have to try that, thank you for sharing this great tutorial.

  189. Judy D. says:

    Beautiful card!!! My favorite color combo is a bit boring, perhaps – deep brown, khaki, cream, mocha, but then I like a splash of color for accent – deep red or dark olive green, for instance, or a medium deep teal blue. Thanks for a chance to win some minis!!

  190. Judy Cantrell says:

  196. Sarah R says:

    Great card. I am loving salty ocean and peacock feathers. These mini distress inks are so awesome. Thanks for sharing.

  197. Barb S says:

    I loved the results when i tried your last project, so looking forward to making this one, too–it’s beautiful! I have a color palette that I myself want to try, because it was inspired by a view I had of Lake Superior last month. Going to put together Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Pine Needles, Rusty Hinge, Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain. This was the sky, the lake, the rocky coast and the pine trees…it was stunning. I find myself analyzing everything I see these days, asking myself what Distress Inks I would use to duplicate it!

  198. Lucy E. says:

    This card is so pretty!
    I just got some texture paste and can’t wait to try this technique!
    My favorite ink combos are Tumbled Glass, Victorian Velvet, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmelade.
    They can be combined to look like a summer sunset.

  199. Rachel Ober says:

    My favorite color combo was one I made using broken china, mowed lawn and vintage photo.
