Introducing our new DT Members & a fun creation

Hello Everyone and Happy October!

Darlene with you today and before I share my creation using dies from the fabulous Dies R Us store, I have a couple announcements to make.

First of all, we sadly said goodbye to a few of our DT ladies at the end of September.  We can't thank these ladies enough for their dedication and fabulous inspiration through out the Dies R Us DT term.  Thank you so much

But on a happier note, I would like to introduce you to our newest Design Team Members.

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.
