Avery Elle designing!

Woo hoo!

I am so pleased to announce that I'll be joining the Avery Elle design team! I have long since admired their adorable designs, and I am so excited that I'll be using them regularly on the blog now!

That sunburst die is my absolute fave. I want to use it on every card! It is so perfect for highlighting cute images, like Heather's little fairy.  Pixie Dust is an adorable fairy-themed set, with 3 fairies and lots of accessories, like a little tooth wand! I can't even.

I cut a circle into the Burst die, and layed clouds and a subtle patterned paper behind to create a sky.  Then, using 2 sizes of circle dies (also included in the Burst die set,) I created a circle frame, which I colored with copic markers to match the fairy's dress. I love coloring die-cuts with copics, it looks so much less flat than just cutting a colored cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment onto a banner die-cut, and layered everything together.

I hope you like it! Check out the formal announcement on the AE blog this morning - click!
