Kanban Carnaby Street, Cats & Quilts, Haynes Collection, Gilded Collection & Sweet Shop

All of these gorgeous cards are made from the new April selection of Kanban goodies, which is now in store at Foil Play.
Firstly, Carnaby Street - a fabulous selection of Yvette Jordan glamourous lady foiled & die cut toppers, with a huge choice of co-ordinating cardstock in red, white, blue and black.
The Cats and Quilts collection of die cut topper sheets is so delightful, that I was very sorely tempted to keep them all to myself and not list any! If you like them, be quick as I suspect they will be very popular.
The Gilded Collection is a gorgeous, colourful selection of bird themed die cut toppers, printed on luxurious reflective card.
There's something for men too, lots of Haynes Manual car themed images printed on golden reflective card, available both as die cut toppers and co-ordinating card.
Last but not least, a truly delicious selection of Sweet Shop toppers and co-ordinating card.
As always, at Foil Play you can pick and choose the designs that you like and will actually use, rather than investing in a huge kit and p&p is free if you spend over £5.00. If you already have a kit, you might like to stock up with a few extra of your favourite designs. Alternatively, get a sheet or two from several collections and you'll have lots of variety without it costing you a fortune.

Kanban Text Girl cards

I made these four cards from a single die cut Kanban topper sheet, from the All About Her collection, I still have some of the die cut sentiments from the sheet left over.
The sheet contains two large toppers with additional decoupage layering elements which I've used for the first two cards above, and two smaller toppers. The bigger toppers are suitable for large cards - the first card pictured is 10 x 7 inches.
I've used nesties and Go-Create dies to create mats for the toppers.
I also used a selection of co-ordinating ribbons and a couple of Craftwork Cards button greeting sentiments.

Angie has used the die cuts as they are for her classy card, you could of course colour them in if you prefer, using whichever colouring medium you like.

New baby card with Redhotbed toppers

I made this card using a Redhotbed topper sheet. The toppers are die cut into rectangles, I used more than one and decoupaged individual elements to add a bit of dimension.

I used an 8" x 8" square card as the base card, covered with a sheet of DCWV paper. I added co-ordinating ribbon, embossed & plain mats and a cute Anna Griffin button sticker as the finishing touch. I rounded the corners of the topper & mats with a corner rounder.

Wedding favours using Kanban enamel glazed card

Angie has been a very busy bee again, creating these simply stunning wedding favours, using Kanban sparkle enamel glazed card and Dufex butterfly toppers.
As you can see, for both types of wedding favour, Angie has used small amounts of the card, so a little will go a long way.
The close up above shows how beautiful this particular card is, in stunning detail.
Angie made the butterflies for the first set of favours by decoupaging them from a sheet of die cut waterfall toppers. Dufex have now brought out a range of stunning die cut butterfly toppers, which are now in stock.
The second selection of pillow box favours is accented with beautiful layered flowers, with gem centres.
