This project didn't turn out at all as planned - isn't it gorgeous! DT member Jane made this shabby chic confection foiled distressed dot background. More details of how she created this beautiful project are on her blog Onions and Paper. Thank you, Jane!
Here are three cards that I made with sentiment toppers from the Kanban MacKenzie collection, rather more CAS (clean and simple) in style in contrast to all the bows and rosettes on the Cats and Quilts cards!
All are 6 x 6 cream cards, using a sentiment as the focal point, Bouquet Swirls peach printed background card (from the Floral Bloom collection), a band from a Kensington die cut topper sheet and a touch of bling.
Autumn Delights is a delightful selection of five different concept card kits, while Thoughts of Autumn is a beautiful collection of ten die cut topper sheets, with co-ordinating foiled and printed background card.
Both collections have featured very recently on Create & Craft TV. If you didn't fancy the whole kit, or would like to stock up on extras of your favourites, you can now select the individual designs of your choice at Foil Play.
Two gorgeous new kits from Craftwork Cards are now in stock at Foil Play: The Potting Shed and The Magic of Christmas. Each contains a themed selection of papers and co-ordinating embellishments to make beautiful cards.
You may well have seen the kits demonstrated recently on Create & Craft TV - I've also repinned a selection of inspirational samples to Foil Play's Craftwork Cards Pinterest board, here.
I think there's something about leaves and Autumn themes that particularly lend themselves to foiling - check out DT member Jane's lush embossed card with foil highlights. More details of how she created this beautiful project are on her blog Onions and Paper. Thank you, Jane!
If you love using toppers in your card crafting, check out the Kraftyhands range, which is now available at Foil Play.
There's a huge and versatile selection suitable for a wide range of recipients and occasions, including Christmas, children, love & romance, lots of male themed toppers and even some that are a little bit saucy!
I've put together a Pinterest board here with a selection of samples using Kraftyhands toppers for extra inspiration.
You may well have seen Mike and Ian in their previous appearances on Create & Craft TV. They have recently announced that they will be taking part in the British Craft Network - a new internet Craft TV channel which starts on 1 October, so that's something new and exciting to look forward to!
