Smirk decoupage and embellishments

The very cute Smirk Naughty but Nice & Love and Friendship die cut decoupage collections (as seen on the Create & Craft TV channel) are now available at Foil Play.
Each die cut decoupage kit contains four die cut projects, one of which is glittered and one of which is foiled, four sheets of co-ordinating backing paper and a pack of self adhesive foam pads.
A delicious selection of Smirk papers, stickers, rub ons, ribbons and brads is also available to produce a co-ordinated look for your cards.
The Smirk Naughty but Nice collection is full of mischievous characters and innocent angels which are perfect for a party princess or a little devil. Colourful characters and funny, good humoured, sentiments make up this cheeky range.

For the one you love or your favourite friend, why not check out the Smirk Love and Friendship collection. Cute characters say ‘I love you’ or simply ‘thanks for being a friend’ in an adorable way. Soft colours and meaningful words mix delightfully in this range of paper craft products.

Anniversary card using Golden Oldies decoupage

I made this card for a ruby wedding anniversary - the recipients are just about speaking to me again now :-)

I used an A5 card, made by folding an A4 sheet of card in half, with a wide ribbon to embellish the edge. The decoupage is made from the Old Romantics sheet from the Paper Laughs range of step by step decoupage.

I layered up the decoupage using silicone adhesive and mounted it onto a backing of embossed hearts, made using a cuttlebug embossing folder and pink pearlescent card. The greeting was stamped using a HOTP stamp and embellished with a few heart gems, adhered using a Sakura Quickie glue pen.

A selection of monochrome cards using Kanban toppers

Here's a selection of mainly monochrome cards that I made using Kanban toppers from the Vintage Adverts - Ladies die cut topper sheet.
6 x 6 inches is one of my favourite card sizes, easily made by trimming an A4 sheet of card. I made four of these in white, then covered them in a selection of different monochrome 6 x 6 papers and toning ribbons, using double sided self adhesive tape.
I then matted each of the Kanban toppers onto black mirror card, using self adhesive foam tape, to add a little dimension and mounted onto the card using self adhesive tape.
As a finishing touch, I added some flowers to embellish each card. The flowers were made from black mirror card and hammered effect white card with Kanban bling or pearl gem centres. I made the large flowers with a Sizzix die and the smaller ones using paper punches.
