Tim Holtz Ranger Ink Distress Christmas Mica Stain | Christmas Cards

Christmas is coming and I'm already counting down the days! As a lover of all things Christmas, I'm so excited for the Tim Holtz Christmas product reveals to begin. How about you? Today, Tim revealed his new limited edition Ranger Ink Distress Holiday Collection that is perfect for all our Christmas makes. These products include 2 sets of Distress Mica Stains, (when combined with the Halloween colors we now have a rainbow of colors to play with) a Distress Holiday Sparkle Set, and a Distress Holiday Texture Set.

I was blessed to be gifted these new products a bit early, so I thought it would be fun to share a few cards I created using the brand new Mica Stains. I want to remind you that these are limited edition and once they are gone, they are gone!

Also, as I mentioned when I shared some Halloween cards I created using the Halloween Mica Stains, it is nearly impossible to photograph how gorgeously shiny these Mica Stains are in real life, but I promise you they are absolutely magical!

Merry Christmas Card by Juliana Michaels featuring the Tim Holtz Ranger Ink Distress Christmas Mica Stain

This first card uses the Flourish Layering Stencil with the Peppermint Stick and Winterberry Mica Stains onto a piece of Distress Watercolor. Once the stains were dry, I added some stamping using Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Archival Ink and images from the Yuletide and Vintage Holidays Stamp Sets. I then layered one some die cuts using the Countdown Thinlits cut from black cardstock.


To add a little more shimmer the Merry was die cut from some Mistletoe Green Pearl Cardstock from Sizzix using the Merry and Bright Thinlits. The edges were inked with a bit of Festive Berries Distress Ink and the entire panel was adhered onto a piece of Holly Berry Pearl Cardstock for even more shimmer. I finished off the card with at sentiment from the Tiny Text Christmas Stamp Set.

On this card, I used the Deco Arch Layering Stencil with the Snow Flurries and Frosted Juniper Mica Stains. I added a touch of stamping with Hickory Smoke Archival Ink using a script stamp from the The Poinsettia Stamp Set. Next, I die cut the largest snowflake from the Stunning Snowflakes Thinlits from a Silver Pearl Cardstock by Sizzix. I then layered on a holly die cut from black cardstock using the Mini Holiday Greens Thinlits.


To complete the card, I inked the edges with Salvaged Patina Distress Ink and added a sentiment from the Tiny Text Christmas Stamp Set.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas Card by Juliana Michaels featuring the Tim Holtz Ranger Ink Distress Christmas Mica Stain

For my final card, I used the Holly Bough Layering Stencil with the Holly Branch and Tree Lot Mica Stains. The stamping on this card used images from the Vintage Holiday and The Poinsettia Stamp Sets in Hickory Smoke Archival Ink.


I layered on the number die cuts using the Count Down Thinlits die cut from the Holly Berry Pearl Cardstock and another holly leaf die cut. The edges on this card were inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and once again I used the Tiny Text Christmas Stamp Set for the sentiment.
