nbus goes us - take 4

More fun with PTI Phrase Play #11 die. Hope you've enjoyed my series. Meet the card that started it.

For a homeschooled grad. Now I don't know how homeshooling works with "graduation", but I saw some photos of her friends with red gowns and I wanted to work rainbow colors into the design. So where are they, you ask?

ROYGB with a layer of white on top. I actually made the stacked die cut first then chose to adhere it to a black cardbase. Maybe not girly (she's not), but definitely striking.

So then, for the boy wearing the blue gown in his family's photos (TG for FB!)...

For Papertrey Make it Monday Neutrals. Did some stamping. And used neutrals including Soft Stone PP to let the die cut pop. Hope that counts.

And finally, waiting in the wings...The "series" started when I started playing with all the fun remnants from the die cuts for the first card above.

Gave it a tilt when adhering and added a few stars for fun. Kinda funny that this card of Ardyth P.'s pushed me over the edge to purchase this die. And I haven't even tried cutting it apart yet!!!

Going to CASology #115 with these

Thanks for looking! Happy weekend.


  1. Perfectly fitting, Maria! And yet another GENIUS and delightful make with this die in all its togetherness!! Love, love, love!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I love how each card is so different! Love that rainbow effect on the first one and so fun to use the bits on the third!

  3. Maria! One of the reasons I love coming here is because there's always that certain je ne sais quoi to see ... today, that's times three! Awesome cards ... cool stripey stamping, love the layering, and oh my, that multicoloured celebration ... completely splendid! Anita :)

  4. You are so clever, Maria! I love how you included a rainbow of colors on your first card, and your 2nd card is perfectly masculine! What a fun way to use your 'remnants' on the last card, too...they are all really fabulous!

  5. Ich bin immer wieder fasziniert von deinen sauberen und modernen Karten Stil und wie vielfältig man so eine Stanze verwenden kann!!
    Liebe Grüße, Rosi

  6. These are all gorgeous, Maria, and you're totally making me want that die! Can't decide whether the first or second is my favourite… Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  7. Maria, not one but three amazing graduation cards! I love the "hidden rainbow" on the first clever and fun! Thanks for joining us at CASology...I love all three cards!

  8. Way to rock the use of die, love the variety in design :)


Go ahead... make my day!
