Lots of new die cut decoupage treats from G18 - SnapShots, DuoStacks, MiniTriples and DoubleTakes

New in at Foil Play is a delicious selection of new and innovative die cut decoupage treats from G18 (who already produce the very popular die cut DuoTwists and Large Format Pyramage).

All of the new designs are produced on even more luxurious 250gsm silk paper to add that touch of class to any project - and all without the need to reach for those scissors!
Firstly, DuoStacks - oval pyramid decoupage sheets, each with two stunning designs, perfect for A6 and A5 cards. Pop out the numbered images from the sheet, 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.

Designs available include a gorgeous selection of ladies showcasing fashion throughout the 20th century, delightfully detailed monochrome wild animals and some beautiful antique floral arrangements.
'MiniTriples' are pyramid stacking '3 on a sheet' Decoupage sheets from G18. The designs feature air, water, fire and earth signs of the Zodiac.

With MiniTriples you simply pop-out the clearly numbered die-cut pieces and layer using sticky foam pads or silicone glue. Three fantastic designs and co-ordinating design elements on each sheet - great value!
'DoubleTakes' are new and exclusive 'dual purpose' decoupage sheets. Ten of the world’s greatest paintings makes this range just that little special.

From one sheet you can make both a conventional decoupage and an inverted ‘Invertage’ design. Simply pop out the die-cut pieces and use the inner rectangles to layer up the pyramid and the outer frames to complete the unique and stunning inverted 'invertage' design. You also get heaps of matching banners and tags.
'SnapShots' are new exclusive Camera Iris Decoupage designs. The beautiful images are by award winning photographer Istvan Kadar.

With this stunning new design you simply pop-out the clearly numbered die-cut pieces and layer on top of the main background piece using sticky foam pads or silicone glue. The end result is a truly unique and 'postal friendly' Camera Iris effect design.

Complete your crafting masterpiece with thoughtfully co-ordinated design elements, including tags, banners and a charming set of pop-out mini decoupage buttons.
