Card Candy - Travel

I've joined a swap on Splitcoaststampers forSpring and Summer Card Candy. This batch is for the travel category.

Card Candy is a piece you could put straight on a card/scrapbook page without having to do anything to it. An image, a saying, etc. and usually consists of a minimum of 2 layers and possibly an embellishment. There are usually 4/5 pieces of candy in a package.

The first piece is an interstate sign. The die is from ProvoCraft and was cut out of white, blue and red paper and put together. The "66" is cut from white paper using Sizzix's Playground sizzlets.

The next piece uses white and navy paper and the ink is Adirondack Denim. The base layer has little passport stamps - the stamp is an ATC stamp from either Lost Coast Designs or Stamp Camp. I don't recall which - they are generally together at the conventions I go to - and I can't find it on either web page and punched with SU's small oval, large oval and scalloped oval.
The Traveler stamp is from a set of travel words from Impression Obsession.

The round piece is a stamp from Inkadinkado, stamped with Adirondak Cabin Fever on ivory paper from Office ??? and matted on DCWV paper.

The elephant stamp is from SU's Balmy Breezes and stamped with Color Box Antique Pewter on grey paper, cut with Fisker's stamp scissors, matted on white and matted again on the grey, once again cut with the stamp scissors.

The tag is SU's Hiways and Byways background stamp, colored with copics and matted with red paper and punched with SU's tag punches. I left the interstate sign blank so the user can add their favorite highway number.
