Great cards. The B/W really caught my eye.

Jody V

Love your cards. Thanks for sharing with us. Great release.

Sharon Gullikson

I love the tulips. SO pretty. I like how you watercolored them loosely.

Bonnie E.

Beautiful trio of cards - it is amazing how the change in background can change the feel of the card. I love that tulip background, and love the monochromatic look of your graduation card and that bit of black glitter for the Congrats gives it such great presence.

Tricia Bartkey

I love seeing the same congrats die used with such different backgrounds! It opens up the possibilities!

Meghan Kennihan

I love the backgrounds for the CONGRATS! That rainbow one is soooo cool!

Joanne M Hoffmann

Love how you changed up the cards but used the same CONGRATS die...different backgrounds and colors= new card designs!! Awesome Sauce!

Three wonderful grad cards for guys or gals. I love the bright colors of the last card. I feel bad for the seniors missing out on so much this year, but any of these cards will sure make them happy.

Nina Houghton

Perfect example of why I love these blog hops: I would never have thought to use the tulip background stamp with the congrats die. It is gorgeous, and I can think of so many times I could send it! Thank you!

This is such a timely release as I have a grandson graduating in June & then 8 more to follow, so I'd get so much use out of these grad stamps & dies, along with the sentiment strips. Your cards are great! I really like the look of the field of tulips as well. Thanks.
