  1. What a lovely assortment of colors this year!!! They are all quite stunning!! Can’t wait to see 2016’s colors!

  2. What a happy shade of red! It’s perfect for the cards and crafts I have yet to do for Christmas (is it really only 3 weeks away??!!). I love this shade of Distress ink and look forward to playing with it!! <3

  3. I LIKE it! We needed a bright red in distress ink. This is a must have. All the 2015 colors have been exceptional.

  4. Is this a must have? Heh, what does TH do that isn’t a must have? I’m broke but happy (and inky!). :)

  5. Candied Apple is most definitely a “must-have!” There were a few colors I was not excited about through the year; but, looking at the entire year’s palette together, I was mistaken! Love them all!

  6. It has been a fun and colorful year. What excitement each month as I anticipated the reveal of the new color. It was like Christmas morning without the after Christmas let down. Fabulous color, and GREAT job creating the colors. I really liked that you showed color combinations as it peaked our creativity and opened up the possibilities of the distress line. Thanks for sharing your creativity and thanks to the “behind the scenes” people in your organization.

  7. Love this colour. But ist is not onlay good for all the christmas crafts, would love to use this for all the autumn match and mix things. Great

  8. This is a gorgeous red and complements the rest of the year’s color choices so nicely. It’s my favorite color and one I wear a lot. Being a redhead doesn’t make that easy but as long as it’s the right red, I can do it! Wonder what’s in store for next year? More colors? Different items? Hmmm…

  9. Love the candied apple red. I have all the new colors in Distress Ink but two and will add them soon. Love these brighter new colors and I use them with the older colors all the time. They tend to give a fresher look and I like that!

  10. The palette of new colors are divine! This red is awesome!! Valentines, candy hearts, Christmas baubles, cherries…

  11. I love the new red. I’ve been looking for the perfect red and this likes a keeper. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

  12. Love all the new colours and would love to win the Tim Holtz goodie bag! My favorite colours are the Mermaid Lagoon and now, Candy Apple Red..a definite must have. Thanks for this opportunity.

  13. This years colors are simply outstanding and I am so happy to be the owner of all of them! Thank you Tim and all the others involved in making them, marketing them, etc. It’s been fun.

  14. I just knew it would be
    a red this month! This
    is a wonderful color and
    would be great to use.

  15. This is a must have color. Beautiful shade of red. Just what is needed this time of year and Valentines Day coming up. Thank you. Gotta get mine soon.

  16. A beautiful red. It is bright and luscious! All of the color were a beautiful addition to the Distress Family. Thanks for all that you do for us!!!

  17. Wow! I foresee inking Candied Red on my Chinese New Years cards. Then I will pop my summer cards with poppy images! What a vibrant versatile color! Oh, and Valentine’s Day…..Candied Red will be all over that home decor and cards!
