January ATC Swap

The theme for this month's swap on byhandartists Yahoo group is blue and orange or packets. For this first set I used blue and orange with either colour for the first layer and words, then used the other colour for the main layer. I used the Cuttlebug Forever Friends embossing and die set and on the first I used paper flowers and the second has a silk flower.

This set is couragated cardboard run through the Cuttlebug with a Sizzex embossing folder and rubbed with a blue pigment inkpad. The words are a Quietfire Design stamped on orange cardstock.

This last one is my favourite, it uses blue orange and pockets. The bottom layer is blue with a rubberstamped tape measure. The next 2 layers are orange scrapbook patterned paper. The top layer is white cardstock rubberstamped with blue pigment ink and numbers from various stamp sets. The pockets have tags and mini monopaly money. The card is finished with and orange lace ribbon and blue and orange fibres. The blue plastic tag with a number is a tree tag used by tree planters.
