Dies R Us Inspiration Card & new DT Members

Hello Everyone and Happy October!

Before I share my creation using dies from the fabulous Dies R Us store, I would like to introduce you to our newest Design Team Members.

Please extend a warm welcome to:



The card I have created for you today uses just a few dies and came together just the way I wanted it to!  YAY!  Love when that happens!  LOL

The main focus die is this wonderful Poppystamps 'Perched Faerie' 
Poppystamps - Dies - Perched Faerie
the sentiments are also from Poppystamps
'Fairy' Loose Script
Poppystamps - Dies - Fairy Loose Script
'Magic' Loose Script
Poppystamps - Dies - Magic Loose Script
I have die cut the faerie a total of 5 times but the wings only once!
After putting the wings onto one of the faeries, I then glued together the remaining four before adhering them to my main faerie.  A glue pen and Art Deco Glamour Dust was added to the wings for 'magical' sparkle.

Here you can see the dimension & sparkle achieved ...

The star is actually one of the four that popped out of my Sue Wilson Festive Collection 'Frosty Frame' (#CED3122) so I used it to give my faerie a heart.    Unfortunately this particular die is out of the store at the current time but please check back again to see if it reappears and be sure to check out all the other beautiful dies available in the Sue Wilson Festive Collection.  For instance, this beautiful Twinkle Star Frame ... this could be used for a design such as this also.

Wow, your layering of the fairy is so perfect and love that you did the wings only once. How pretty on the SW Frosty Frame, too! Congrats to the new team! DRU sure keeps you hopping!

Great idea to cut the wings only once, makes the wings so nice and delicate and pretty sparkle on them, pretty framing to go with her!
