Winter Distress Inks Giveaway

This candy is now closed

As promised, I'm giving away a set of Tim Holtz' Limited Edition Winter 2011 Distress Inks
Let me tell you, these colours are absolute must-haves. My favourite so far is the Evergreen Bough, and here's a reminder of the birthday card I made for Kath using it...
So what do you have to do to get you sticky mitts on a set for free?
well it's easy peasy, just leave a comment telling me what is top of your crafty wish list for xmas and post a pic of the inks with a link to this post on your sidebar.

The giveaway ends on Friday 25th November at noon GMT and I'll draw a winner in the afternoon.

Fab giveaway Debbi and your card for Kath is gorgeous. I'm going to start an art journal in the new year so I'll be asking Santa for lots of inks, paints and quirky 'arty farty' stamps. Have a great week. xx

Hallo Debbi,

Thanks for this chance; I would love to have these winter distresscolours from Ranger, so I keep my fingers crossed.
I don't have a xmas list, because I'm happy with every little thing for my crafting hobby :-), but some stamps would be very nice too!!

Zezza said...

Super wonderful card!! Umm my top crafty wish...i9t might something as boring as a new cutting mat for my sillhouette...or some new distressers :o)

craftyfoxglove said...

wow what a lovely card! the colours are fantastic, especially the evergreen bough!I adore butterflies too. found you through Kath's blog, thanks for the chance to win some inks. For Christmas this year I want Tim Holtz!!! don't think my hubby would approve tho!!

Paula (PEP) said...

Have added to my sidebar - thanks for the chance of some of these; I must admit I cannot imagine not using Distress Inks now. Top of my wishlist is the new release of FlexMarkers - all 4 12 packs. I'm hoping they will all fall within the budget my husband gave me - we each have a certain sum, choose our own present within that budget & the other squirrels it away until the day.

Ali said...

Thank you for an inspirational blog and a chance to win. for my Xmas I would love love love some Kraft paper. know its quite boring but just increased my stash at the secc so better not be greedy. LOL.

Kimberly said...

Beautiful these inks...hoping santa brings me PAPER!!!yup that's what i's not a's a need...tfs

CraftyLoops said...

Oh my giddy aunt! Debbi, if I told you I screamed when I saw what you were giving away...would you think me a bit mad!!?? Lol. Wow! I would LOVE these. Your card is really beautiful. The colours look perfect. Well, obviously on the top of my Christmas Wish list is, well Tim Holtz himself. But failing that, any of his stamps, distress inks, dies....anything Tim related. His on the edge dies are my next big want I think....or do I want the tattered leaves die.]?! Oh the metallic mixatives look good too! So many goodies..Im happy with any!!! I have your giveaway in my sidebar. In answer to your query about how long it takes to alter the chocolate box, I suppose if you were to sit and do it from start to finish, maybe 1 1/2-2hrs. But I didnt do it in one go Debbi. I came back and forth over a good handful of weeks. Hope that helps. Lee xx

annies place said...

I agree, that green is so pretty, love the card for Kath. It would be so nice to win these as I'm loving experimenting with these inks

Becky Dunham said...

What a beautiful card Debbi! So sweet of you to give away some of these fabulous distress inks! I have only every tried the walnut but I am sure I can figure these out :) Let me see, the top of my wish list? That is a tricky one. Right now the top things on my list are the Tim Holtz Alterations pine cone die and the MS branch punch (which is discontinued of course). I would also love the Cricut Expressions 2 or the Imagine. Uh oh, I got started thinking - better stop now! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Luanne said...

Hi Debbi, I love those colors. I have my first 2 Distress Inks just bought recently in Hong Kong when my family and I went on a vacation and love it! My top crafty wish list for Xmas is Bigshot/Bigkick/Cuttlebug machine and lots of lovely dies and embossers. :D

Thanks for the chance on your lovely giveaway.

M-J said...

Thanks for the chance to win. Since I am relatively new to crafting, top of my wishlist is a cuttlebug, cannot WAIT to try die cutting, think it will take card making to a whole new level! I have never tried Tim Holtz ink before, but so many crafters rave about it so I would love to win some!

Hi Debbie

Lovely candy you are giving away, thanks for the opportunity. I have only dabbled in distressing and have yet to use Tim Holtz distress inks, so these would be my first!

I have posted a link/photo on my blog!


Net said...

Fab card - lucky Kath.

Hmmm? My wish for Christmas? Well it would have to be the Tidy Fairy! She could come and make a start in the craft tip. Though judging by the state of it she might still be hard at it next Christmas, unless she has an industrial strength wand!

paperpapier said...

My top craft wish list is Copic X-press It Marker pad...I can't get it in my country.
Tx for the chance to win this super sweet winter candy.
