FGS Creative Designs Stack-Its and Jasi-Kins sheets

Foil Play has stocked up on Stack-Its pyramid decoupage sheets, which have been very popular recently. Stack-Its, from FGS Creative Designs, are a great new style of decoupage, as seen on Create & Craft TV.

You cut out all the different sized shapes of the image, then layer them on top of each other with foam pads, starting with the largest at the base and the smallest at the top, to create a 3D pyramid effect.

Self adhesive foam pads are recommended rather than silicone adhesive for this particular type of decoupage, as they provide more even spacing between layers.

There are lots of different designs in the range, including animals, floral, oriental, male, religious, Sandra Kuck, Sugar Snips and of course a wide choice of lovely Christmas designs too.

I've also added lots of new Jasi-Kins decoupage sheets. There are three different 3D step by step sheets with co-ordinating backing papers in the range, and a wider choice of sheets with 6 identical fairy images, like the one above, which could be used as individual toppers, as well as for decoupage.

The multi image sheets are for more advanced decoupagers, as you need to identify which elements to omit in the layered design, but of course the designs you produce will be more individual. If you are new to decoupage, you might prefer to start with step by step designs before moving on to these.

Foil Play and ShoppingTelly.com

I am delighted to say that Foil Play has become a ShoppingTelly.com outlet!

ShoppingTelly.com is a great independent forum, packed with excellent advice and up to date news on all aspects of shopping TV channels. There is also a 'sister' forum dedicated to craft shopping on TV, at CraftTelly.com.

If you watch or purchase from QVC, Ideal World, Create & Craft or other shopping TV channels, both forums are very well worth checking out.
