missin you

i was totally thrown off guard with the latest color inspiration from the play date cafe! i was like, psh, no WAY i'm going to come up with something with those colors!! ...and then i made two cards!! :) turns out, i'm sort of a fan of that color combination! :)

the cards i made are a set, same stamps, and slight differences. i used the 'across the miles' stamp set from the sweet stamp shop (LOVE that image. i can't say that enough. LOVE!). and i created the sentiment from lawn fawn's 'quinn's abc's'. 

here's the first card:

the image is popped up for dimension, and the heart was glossi-fied.
i cut out the state of Colorado, because that's where the recipient (to be!) of this card lives, and it's 'missing'. he he he.

on the second card, nothing is popped up - what? i know! totally not me. the heart is also glossy. yep, just a bunch of fussy cut stamp images. :) i like it though! :)

like i said - i really had fun making these cards, and stepping out of (what i thought was!) my comfort zone! 



  1. What fun and creative cards! Love the US map and how you highlighted the states of the recipients! Thanks for playing this week at The
    Play Date Cafe!

  2. Oh I love your card, such a fun way to do it with the little heart in the gap! So creative! Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at The Play Date Cafe this week!

  3. I like them, too, Samantha! You're really making me want that stamp set ;). And your glossy heart is such a great touch! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

  4. Such a cute idea!! I knew that set was perfect for you, since you have been coast to coast and inbetween!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
