Happy Sunday ! - Hi, There!

Hello again , from Sunny Singapore ! 

I must share that tools in my papercrafting are such  gamechangers for me! 
I'm NOW having even more fun than before with my Cuttlebug , 
diecutting with our latest , adorable releases.
No project now feels complete unless I add even one little tiny Cottage Cutz diecut ! 
It's that gamechanging for me ! 

For my first card here , I wanted to try out the coordinating Orchid die 
And loving  frames at the moment , I couldn't resist adding half a circle ornate frame 
to "contain" my piecing . ;)  I also glitzed up the Orchid Flower with some Stickles ! 
A little bling is never wrong , huh ?! I also used foam pads to pop up the design as and where I wanted more dimension. 

No matter your cardmaking style , whether it be on the simpler side or otherwise , 
the use of diecuts to me simply gives you a unique finishing  no matter how many times 
you use the same design ! 

For this Thank you card , I have combined the girl silhouette and ribbon diecuts from the Cameo and Oval Frame die  with the ornate circle frame  for a more balanced design with this card orientation. 

I wouldn't say that clean and simple is my go to style usually with cards, 
but it was easy to be inspired to try  to this clean , graphic look for 
a change here ! ;) 

So, don't allow your Cottage Cutz dies to be in cold storage .
Keep them always in sight on your crafting table and the more you use them ,
the more your creative mind 
will find ways to get more out of them ! ;)
