Stitched Hills & Clouds

Hi bloggers!  I think you are really going to like this set; it's the Stitched Hills and Clouds.  These will go so well so many of the dies in this release too.  I have imagined the clouds with not only things like the hot air balloon and rainbow, but they can be used with new arrival dies and even the Christmas Angel!  The hills are a natural for use with the garden and floral dies as well as the Majestic tree and Garden Cart.  They are also very useful for stencilling clouds and hill lines, don't forget!  This set will be a real go to set to have in your crafty arsenal.  You know the drill by now, leave your comments.  You can't win it if you don't enter it and it is very easy to do, the directions are on the side of the blog.  We have one more post to go to finish off the autumn release and it will be here at 6pm.  I would love it if you can take the time to pop back by the blog then.  All for now, Sue x

Oooh, I've seen this one pictured quite a bit (like on Joanna Sheen's website) and loved the look of it - like what you've done to showcase it too.

Lovely card too.

Pawprintx4 said...

These are neat and so useful. I saw Lisa on Hochanda yesterday using a Gemini die to cut small hills on a baby card...this would give stitches to go with the animals.
That rainbow is so cute once again to tempt us and we must not overlook the sentiment which is both a lovely saying and a beautiful font.
Now, I am really off to the grocery before more rain,
Hugs to all,

Gorgeous, gorgeous card. I knew as soon as I saw this set I just had to have it. So useful for so many different themes. At the moment I'm working on Christmas cards (although I must do an anniversary card for my husband before Friday) so I can picture snowy hills and I love your idea of using the clouds with the Christmas angel. So many uses.

Well this has to go on my wish list. I wasn't sure when I first saw it and crossed it off but it is back on again. Not that anyone looks at my wish list come Christmas and birthday as they all think I have more than enough dies.😟 So rarely get craft stuff. I think this die will have many uses. Thank you Sue. I know someone who I could send this card to right now.

This is such an adorable set of dies and as your card shows makes the most wonderful showcase fir the other dies. I wouldn't wonder if this one proved to be mega popular, it is so useful.
Happy Birthday Myra and Nanny Jo, hope you both have had a wonderful day.
Elaine, I'm so sorryJohn is struggling with his meds. I too think it is a long time to leave him like that till his hospital appointment. You have such a lot to deal with please take care of yourself.
Received a call from Occupational Health today, she was firing off a strong email to my manager ready for our meeting tomorrow, fully supportive for me and she said tomake sure my union rep sees it. I'll ask fir a copy in the morning as my copy has to come out via the post. Feel as if I'm getting somewhere now, I hope so anyway.

Narrowboat girl said...

I will admit that this due set didn’t float my boat when I first saw it but having now seen your fab card I have been converted

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, love this card and these dies. They may not look much in the packet but you bring them to life and as you can see everyone is already having loads of ideas for using them. Simple shapes but so hard to achieve by hand (unless you are an artist like you) and I am sure these dies will become essential for most of us.

Elaine - thank you for my hug, sending some back to you. I'm sorry John is struggling but I do know that some medication can take a while for the body to get used to. December is still a way off so I hope things improve for him very soon.
Pam - great news from the Occupational Health people, everyone is on your side.
