Color: Walnut Stain
No...this ink isn't great for stamping, but when it comes to distressing: WOWOWOWOW. I have used it directly on paper as well as using a cloth to "apply"/rub it on things such as chipboard, etc. Once I've applied the ink, I spray a bit of water on the inked parts and VOILA....the ink will make the paper age MORE-SO by "seeping" a bit. Haven't used the other colors, but I am anxious to work with those, too!

I wouldn't pay the 6.84 on Amazon, though, when locally, it is MUCH cheaper.

Color: Clear For Embossing
I have most of the Distress Ink pads, and I love them and use them almost every day.

This review is about the CLEAR EMBOSSING INK. I never gave it a thought because I thought that it would give a "Distressed" result or something. I went to online forums and brick-and-mortar stores and told them of my embossing woes. No matter what powder I used, what embossing ink, no matter the paper or heat gun, I *always* got bumps, pits, and general uneven embossing. I've always loved the embossing part and how it COULD look. I wanted as close to a glass-like finish as possible and I always got told that it's supposed to be bumpy and uneven. I refused to accept this, I knew it would be possible, and I would find out how. That's where the scrapbook store came in. I shared with them my plight and that the only way I get what I wanted was using Colorbox pigment ink. My local scrapbook store suggested I try this Distress Clear Embossing Ink, and I did, and I wish I had found out about it earlier. By earlier I mean a year ago. My embossed images no longer have pits and bumps in them. When I use them side by side with the Ranger Inkessentials clear/black embossing pens and I amRanger Inkssentials Embossing Pens, 2-Pack, Black And Clear in embossing heaven.

It was SO relieving to know that it was INK that was my problem, not me!

Color: Peeled Paint
Honestly, these distress ink pads have a lot of uses, but the one thing I never use them for even though they are ink pads is stamping. I found that no matter what type of paper I use or what stamps, these will always bleed at some level. I saw a tutorial on google with someone using these inks for stamping and I definitely noticed the same thing. For stamping, I prefer pigment inks all the way. With that being said, I really love these inks to help age paper. The brown tones combined with the blending tool really creates a wonderful vintage effect. All the colors look great blended together and they are really easy to use when it comes to working around a mask for a really fancy effect. Overall, I don't own too many of these, just the colors I need for vintage effects on paper. I really suggest for those wanting to try these to buy only one and try it out to see if it fits your needs. Also I wanted to add that it helps to shop around because some people are selling these for seven bucks which is insanely high because many of these can be purchased on websites other than amazon for three to four dollars which makes all the difference.

Color: Tattered Rose Verified Purchase
I generally make and sell between 150 - 200 greeting cards per year, and I like to emboss the backgrounds, and then color them so that the raised pattern stands out. I tried all sorts of ink pads until I finally found this Distress Ink pad from Jim Holz. It's advertised as creating "an aged look on papers, fibers, photos & more" which wasn't quite what I was looking for. But it also works very well for coloring a raised pattern after I've run my cardstock through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Please see the customer image for a birthday card that I embossed with a graduation-themed folder, then colored with the tattered rose Distress Ink pad (the background to the main image). Tattered Rose is more beige than rose, but I like the color.

The only drawback to using this Distress Ink pad is that it takes a few minutes to dry.

Color: Clear For Embossing Verified Purchase
In July I bought a Uchida 2500 Embossing Heat Tool and, being new to embossing, didn't know which brand of embossing ink was best to use. I got an inexpensive ink pad at a local craft store and it didn't last very long, less that two weeks of moderate use, and the thin little pad dried up. So I came back here and purchased the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad and have been using it for over a month now and it's still loaded with ink. The ink pad is thicker than the cheap one I got and produces a much better result when rubber stamping.

If you're looking for a good value and a high quality product, then this is the ink pad to use. I plan to try some of the colored pads next. Happy Art-Making!!

I generally make and sell between 150 - 200 greeting cards per year, and I like to emboss the backgrounds, and then color them so that the raised pattern stands out. I tried all sorts of ink pads until I finally found this vintage photo Distress Ink pad from Jim Holz. It's advertised as creating "an aged look on papers, fibers, photos & more" which wasn't quite what I was looking for. But it also works very well for coloring a raised pattern after I've run my cardstock through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Please see the customer image for a sympathy card that I embossed with an autumn-themed folder, then colored with the vintage photo Distress Ink pad.

The only drawback to using this Distress Ink pad is that it takes a few minutes to dry. The vintage photo color will appear to be dark brown on almost any color of card stock.
