Incentive Products


Today we are revealing rest of the products – 3 very unique clear stamp sets, 3 Coordinating Dies, and a gorgeous background cling stamp.

I have 4 cards to share today so let’s get started!


Here is the first card! I used our new City Girls Book Life clear 4×6 stamp set for this projects. OH-MY! I am insanely in love with this set! How unique and lovely are these images?! ❤


I first stamped the girl image few times, the book with the hand, and then 3 different skirt designs in our Copic-safe Caviar Hybrid ink. Then I colored the images with various of Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I didn’t have the Coordinating dies at the moment, but it’s available at the shop now. I also stamped the sentiment (which I absolutely adore!) on a black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a strip and put it aside.


I created the background by stamping Haute Stripes Cling Background stamp in Noir Dye ink several times using the MISTI tool, to make sure I get the clean and crisp stripes. I cut it down and adhered it on a black A2 sized card base. I also made a black frame using the largest and the second largest dies from our (Large) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I popped it up on the card with the foam tape. I adhered the colored image and the sentiment on the card with the foam tape. I finished the card by adding some Glass Slippers and Black Flora sequins.


For the next card, I used our new Sunnies Clear 4×6 clear stamp set. I love these adorable glasses images. They are so fun!!


First of all, this card has no coloring involved! However, I used 3 different glitter embossing powders for each glasses images and fussy cut them out (Coordinating dies are available at the shop now!).


To create the background, I stamped the Minor Stripes Background Cling stamp in Noir Dye ink. On a A2 sized black card base, I adhered a think strip of our Silver Glossy Adhesive Glitter paper on the left edge then adhered the striped background panel bit tilted. I cut the excess with the trimmer and popped up the glasses image on the card with the foam tape.


I stamped the sentiments in Versamark on a black cardstock and heat embossed in white. I cut them down to 2 strips and adhered them on the card also with the foam tape. I added some shimmer on the glasses with the Clear Sparkle Pens and also the Glossy Accents to add more interest. I adhered some sequins from the Black Tie Affair Couture Mix and the Black Flora sequins and the card was done!



For this card, I tried something different and I quite love how it turned out! However, it was bit difficult to capture the shine and sparkle on this card. This Peony Terrace Background cling stamp is so gorgeous and I can’t wait to try different coloring mediums and techniques with this image!


I stamped the Peony Terrace Background on a thick vellum in Versamark and heat embossed with our Rose Gold embossing powder. By the way, Rose Gold embossing powder looks incredibly stunning on vellum.) Then, I added some flicks of pigments with the Zig markers. The Zig colors I used are 026 Light Pink, 033 Persian Green, and 023 Scarlet Red. I added shimmer with the Clear Sparkle Pen and let it dry completely.


To create the background, I adhered our Gold Adhesive Foil paper on a cardstock and die cut it with the largest die from the (Large) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the vellum panel on the gold background by folding over the edge and taping it down on the back of the panel. Then I adhered the panel on a black A2 card base.


For the sentiment, I stamped the images from our new Basic Banners (from Day 2) on the vellum in Versamark, heat embossed in gold, and fussy cut it out. I added some gold thread and then popped up the sentiment banner with the foam tape just on the sides. I finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.


For this last card for today, I created a soft pastel watercolored floral card using our new Watercolor Wreaths 4×6 clear stamp set.


I started the card by stamping the Watercolor Wreaths image on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark. I heat embossed the image in white and colored with Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors. I used the pastel tone pigments and created subtle pink background with lots of water around the image. When it was good and dry, I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye ink several times using the MISTI. I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.5″, and tied the pink tulle in a bow around the panel.


On a white A2 card base, I adhered strips of our Glossy Fine Pink Glitter Paper on the sides and popped up the main panel. I added My Tutu sequins, Silver Holographic sequins, and Dew Drop mix and the card was complete!
