Travel Cup

Click here for the October Card Chain Challenge sign up

Hello.  Welcome.  Oh my goodness.  I had an idea and I had so much fun making this card.  Here's my travel cup......

I CASEd Ksenija's card, inspired by the cascading coffee cups and the way she coloured her cups.  I started by stamping the small coffee cup from Stamplorations Going Postal set on a piece of card.  I coloured the cups with distress ink.  I used YNS slider die to cut the slider slot.  I used fun foam to raise my stamped panel off the base card and stuck the piece cut out of the slot on the card base.  I used a digi version of the coffee cup for the large sliding cup.  I coloured with the same inks and stamped Born to Roam from Stamplorations Born to Roam set.  I used Stamplorations Crazy Stitched Rectangle dies to cut a kraft frame.  The sentiment 'not all those who wander are lost' is also from the Born to Roam set.  I cut the sentiment panel with the crazy stitched rectangle dies in a crazy sort of way.  Needed some balance so cut out one of the small cups and mounted it on the frame.  Love this.  Hold on.  Made a video.  A real one.  Does this work.......


OK, poor man's video

If you click on the first picture it should get big and then you can flick through them.  I will take technical advice on why blogger wouldn't upload my video.......

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
