New Dufex die cut decoupage designs

Dufex has just released some gorgeous new die cut decoupage designs, new in store at Foil Play.

As the sheets are die cut, no scissors or cutting are required - all you have to do is pop out the shapes and layer them up with foam pads or silicone adhesive to create stunning toppers for your card and craft projects.
There is a selection of fantasy designs, some of which also feature on Dufex postcards or toppers, including wolves, unicorns, Native American girls and fairies. There are also four new oriental lady designs.
New to the Dufex range of Freestyle die cut decoupage are the delightful Victorian children design above and an Art Deco ladies sheet.

Each die cut Freestyle sheet comes in a sealed pack, which also contains an instructions and ideas sheet and contains a great selection of pictures, borders, panels and greetings, plus lots of extra embellishments.

You can choose different elements to use together on a project, or combine them with other craft products to create your own distinctive designs.

Kanban Wine concept cards and stock update

Here are a couple of cards that I made using a Kanban die cut concept card sheet (wine cellar). The cardstock for each card was an A4 sheet of moondust card (burgundy and gold), simply folded in half to make A5 cards.
The concept card sheet is pictured below. Rather than using the card part of the sheet as a card, I cut it in half and used it as a matt for the main toppers on both cards, for a co-ordinated look. The toppers were mounted onto toning gold & green / gold & burgundy card cut using nestabilities dies.

I managed to use the border in the middle of the sheet for both cards, a full border for one card and the bits left over put under the cetral topper on the second card. The first card has a greeting from the concept card sheet, the second has a card art greetings banner.
I have stocked up on Kanban goodies over the last week, so many popular items are now back in stock, including Christmas toppers and concept cards.
Whilst the shopping channel QVC has negotiated exclusive deals on many Kanban lines at present, a few new items have been released to other retailers, including the lovely country cottage pyramage stacker sheets pictured above, a selection of foiled card and the gorgeous Diamonds and Pearls self adhesive gems pictured below.

StudioLight has released some lovely new pyramid decoupage designs, some are die cut and some are traditional decoupage sheets.
There is a great selection of designs to choose from, including flower fairies, oriental, floral, babies, wedding, dolphins and cupcakes.
Also newly released is a selection of eight very sparkly holographic Christmas pyramid and twisted pyramid designs for really eye-catching Christmas cards.
Each sheet contains a 3D pyramid project and complementary design elements. Either pop out or cut out all the different sized shapes of the image, then layer them on top of each other with foam pads or silicone adhesive, starting with the largest at the base and the smallest at the top, to create a 3D pyramid effect.
