Incentive Products


Today we are revealing 5 stamp sets, the coordinating dies, the 3 incentive mini stamp sets, and 1 incentive Couture Mix!

As you can see, the Anemones are the main focus of today’s reveal along with one fabulous sentiments stamp set. I created 3 cards with these beautiful  images, each using different coloring mediums.


Here’s the first card! On this card, I’m featuring our new Anemone Bouquet 4×6 clear stamp set and the Penned Sentiments 4×6 clear stamp set. I didn’t have the Coordinating dies at the time I was creating this card, but it will be available to you on Thursday.


I stamped the Anemone Bouquet image in our Copic marker friendly Caviar Hybrid ink and colored it with the Copic markers. The colors I used are C2, C3, V12, V01, V15, V17, G28, YG67, YG17, YG03, B01, and B0000. I wanted create 2 different hues of purple and I was able to achieve that by using some cool gray markers. I added more depth to the image with color pencils and some white dots using the white gel pen. I originally planned this card to be an one layer card. However, after I was done with all the coloring, I accidentally smudged some bright blue pigments around the image. So… I had no choice but to fussy cut the image and paste it on the white cardstock. It didn’t go as planned, but I think the card turned out just fine! 🙂

The sentiment is from our new Penned Sentiments stamp set. I love love love both the fonts and the sentiments on this set! I know I will be reaching this set very often! I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white. I cut it down with the trimmer to a strip and adhered it on the card.


I used black A2 sized card base for this project and accented with a strip of Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter Paper on the side. I popped up the white main panel with black fun foam. I finished the card by adding some Triple Purple Crown, Lemon Chiffon, and Glass Slippers sequins.




Moving on to the second card! This card features our Anemone Wishes 4×6 clear stamp set and I used sentiment from the Penned Sentiments 4×6 clear stamp set.


I stamped the Anemone cluster image from our new Anemone Wishes stamp set in Versamark in on a watercolor cardstock and heat embossed in white. Then I colored the image with my new favorite watercolor medium, the Color Burst powders. The colors I used are: Fuchsia, Naples Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Sap Green, and Lime Green.


When it was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment from our new Penned Sentiments stamp set in our Noir Dye ink. I used the Mini MISTI to stamp it absolutely straight on the panel. By the way, I think this sentiment is so beautiful as well as the font of it! 🙂

When all the stamping and the coloring was done, I trimmed the panel down to slightly smaller than A2 size and scored few lines using the Mini Scoring Board to create more interest. Then I adhered the panel on a black A2 sized card base and finished the card by adding some Dew Drops (Mix).


Last but not least, the third card for today! I’m featuring our Fresh Cut Anemones Coordinating Outlines 4×6 clear stamp set.


I stamped all the floral images from our new Fresh Cut Anemones Coord. Outlines stamp set on a Bristol Smooth Cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed with our gorgeous Rose Gold Embossing Powder. I colored the images with the Stabilo 68 Pens and blended the colors out with the Clear Sparkle Marker instead of clear water for sparkle and shine! The Stabilo 68 Pen colors I used are: #56, #29, #53, #36, #33. When all the images were good and dry, I fussy cut them out. It would’ve been much easier with the Coordinating dies, but it wasn’t available for me at the time.



I swiped our Bright Emerald Dye ink on the lower right corner of the White A2 card base using the Clarity Stencil Brush. I made a rectangular frame using the 1st and 2nd largest layer of the (Small) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it on the card base. Then I adhered the watercolored images on the card. The largest Anemone was popped up using the foam tape. I finished the card by adding some Dew Drops (Mix), My Tutu sequins, Glass Slippers sequins, and also some sequins from our new Summer Soiree Couture Mix.
