  1. I am a blue person . . . Mermaid Lagoon is getting a lot of use at my house! However, that Carved Pumpkin will stay on the top of my workspace through the fall!

  2. Wow, I LOVE this color! I wish it had come out end of August so we could use it on our autumn cards made before Thanksgiving. Love this color with the ground expresso. Wowser!

  3. WOW, I LOVE this color, I have already started my Halloween cards and this color just makes me smile HUGE. Since Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday, this is definitely my FAVORITE color !!!! Thanks Mr. Holtz, You knocked it out of the park on this one !!!!

  4. What a clear, fresh orange! Perfect for my fall projects!! Can’t wait to use it with my Wilted Violet, Ground Espresso, Fossilized Amber & Twisted Citron to make fall leaves. Yum!!!

  5. Orange is my favorite color and I’m so glad this color is in the distress line! This is just a beautiful color!

  6. Orange has LONG been a favorite color of mine, in all shades. It’s just such a warm comforting color to me. LOVE IT!

  7. No doubt: as a Halloween fan this new vibrant carved pumpkin comes in time! Lovely color – it’s already on my shopping list! :)
    kind regards, Irmgard

  8. I love the monthly release of these colors! – and the colors are so timely! Love the true orange and just in time for Fall!

  9. What a great color, especially for the month of October!!! I just have loved all of the new colors. You can never have too many Distress colors.

  10. It is the perfect color for fall and Thanksgiving, however, I cannot say it is my favorite color which is yellow.

  11. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven with Wilted Violet last month BUT, this is a great orange color to use through the fall, and then some!

  12. LOVE this color! I am a big fan of fall so this color really suits me :) It’s so exciting to see a NEW color every month unveiled every month! Exciting giveaway too! Thanks!

  13. The best ever color for October! My favorites so far are Twisted Citron and Abandon Coral, but this is a really nice Orange.

  14. Great color to release in October! Is it a must have………of course! I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to wanting EVERY color! :)

  15. Ooooo!!!! Orange! and not just any orange! The perfect orange! My favorite color! In Distress Ink! Color me happy!

  16. I think it’s the perfect orange!!! I love several colors, but orange is at the top of my list. I probably buy more orange clothing than any other color. LOL And it’s really not a good color for me, unless it’s more on the true blue orange side, but I’m just so drawn to it in many variations. Thanks!

  17. I love the Carved Pumpkin shade! Of course, I like all the other recent shades also…Espresso, twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and the list goes on…. :)

  18. Orange is actually a colour I usually avoid – but frankly, I love the Fall and you can’t craft Fall foliage or anything without oranges and this one will have to join my collection at some point.

  19. Spiced Marmalade is one of my favorite colors in the Distress line, and I want to compare the two colors myself. It’s hard to actually see the difference in the pics and Tim’s video. Can’t wait to get it!

  20. Carved Pumpkin is DEFINITELY a MUST-HAVE color! It is such a rich and vibrant color and it can be combined so beautifully with many other colors! And of course it is so into the fall! Awesome! <3 <3 <3

  21. OMGosh loVe it!!! I really need this yummy orange color in my collection.
    Crafty hugs,
