Rain Or Shine

Hi bloggers!  That last post for day number five and it is continuing the theme that has been running through the dies all shown today.  This post is showcasing the Rain Or Shine die set.  Complete with an adorable open umbrella, sun, wellie boot, closed umbrella, raindrops and a couple of very usable sentiments, this set is certain to be a real go to set.  The elements from the previous two sets shown today will mix and match beautifully to add to your crafty arsenal.  I'm sure you are going to want to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win it!  Day six starts here tomorrow morning at 6am .  All for now, Sue x

Scottydog said...

Very appropriate for today! Love the brollies & wellies (which would also go well on a gardening card). Plenty of ideas for these. Thank you once again Sue for all your inspiration. Really enjoying the launch.

Pam Hartlepool said...

Another pretty die set and card Sue, anither winner. Will go very well with the other sets you have showcased today.
You must be happy that the launch is so successful and you have well and truly tipped us out of our comfort zones. I suspect that was your intention all along.
Oh Elaine, hard luck, guess that means I have to my cards myself lol.

Pawprintx4 said...

Hi Everyone, Unfortunately, I need more "get well" type cards these days...and how happy and uplifting have been the "weather dies" as I think of them. Here is the wonderful stitched sun that Sam identified for me and I love the colorful umbrellas plus there is a closed umbrella for better days? Love this set.
We have sun here and 70 degrees, so nice. I would love a bonfire party though...it will be chilly later.
Have Fun,

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
This Card Is Just Remarkable You’ve Used A Selection Of Cutting Dies
I Really Love The Rain Or Shine Dies From The Necessities Collection
The Fabulous Spots Of Rain, The Tremendous Umbrellas ☔️
The Exceptional Stitched Sunshine ☀️ The Beautiful Stitched Clouds ☁️
I Love The Exquisite Font Of The Sentiments.
I Love The Colour Palette Used On The Umbrellas ☔️ I Think You’ve Used “Tim Holtz”
“Distress Oxide Ink Pads” Which Are Just Tremendous.
I May Be “Totally Wrong” But The Black/White Bar At Top/Bottom Of Your Card Looks
Like The Zipper Edges From The Background In “The Industrial Chic Collection Release” I’m Probably
Wrong But I Had A Good Look If Its Not, This Could Certainly Be Used For This Technique You
Can Also Extend For A Larger Area..........
Sue, Thank You For Another Tremendous Day Your Cards Are First Class Masterpieces Your New Collection
Of Cutting Dies Are Just Phenomenal I’m Truly Looking Forward For Tomorrow Thank You For Sharing Today’s
Exquisite Cards Also For The Tremendous Ideas I For One Definitely Need Your Help (When My Mind Goes Blank!!!!!)
Take Great Care
Sue, Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs 🤗
Love From Sam xxx

Ann said...

Good Afternoon Sue. Well done again Sue (get it ... "well done"... wellie boot ! ! !) ahhh just my little light hearted joke. But very true. Love the umbrellas. Reminds me of a little bar we went to in Turkey. It's an outside bar between two buildings but they have put wires above reaching from one building to the next and then hung all different coloured umbrellas from the wires it looks amazing and of course should there be any rain you are well covered. Someone is going to be very lucky. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

lorraine eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Just how appropriate is this die set for wet and windy Scotland? Its so unbelievably cute though and easily interchangeable with the other die sets featured today, you always give us the maximum versatility so many thanks for that. Adorable card, really made me smile:-)
Pam, i feel naked without my nails on, under dressed and my outfit unfinished:-( , however worse things could happen i suppose, we have to get a wider perspective of things sometimes. I thought you would have to have all your nails polish free for the op, what a bonus that you can still wear it:-) Hope the date comes through soonxxx
Rosemary, lovely to see you back, i’m Being short and sweet with my comments tonight because i have Strictly on standby:-) I think you may be right, Susan or Ruth are in danger tonight but Davood might find himself in the dance off again too....I don’t care as long as my boy Aston gets good marks, i think he’s awesome, his Paso last week was the dance of the night for me, far better than Debbie McGee who i think the judges mark more leniently, perhaps due to her age? Enjoy the show honeyxxx
Yvonne, hope you have an awesome night, Jake has put a lot of effort into it, i bet it will be spectacular....I’ll keep a lookout from my bedroom window for the firework display:-)
Frances, glad Pippin came inside last night, bangers and fireworks are far worse tonight though so hope your babies are safe inside again. Darcey was a good girl last night and went out at her usual time though i think i might struggle with her tonight if there’s no let up in the noise:-(
Donita, i much prefer metric, i still struggle with Sue’s inches measurements, i was brought up with mm and metres, grams and kilograms etc and just cant get used to the more traditional units of measurement.
Sending hugs to all, especially my blog bestiesxxx

Love and crafty hugs

Saba said...

hello Sue,
Another lovely die set and such a cute card to showcase it. Love all the individual elements but the little wellies are my favourites. The sentiments are brilliant too. Thank you Sue.

Laine who are you trying to kid, I'm sure you're old enough to remember pounds shillings and pence. It was a simple system, four farthings or two half pennies to the penny. 12 pennies to a shilling and 20'shillings to the pound. Then we had the three penny piece, the six penny piece, the half a crown - a 2 shillings and six pence piece, the crown, (double of the last one), and not forgetting the Guinea. What's so difficult about that lol.!!!

Love and hugs for all
Saba xxx
