In this first card, Philippa used a picture I had printed off from Yvonne Campbell's blog to follow. It is using Stem Silhouttes stamp (retired), Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip cardstock, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery ink, sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink, Certainly Celery wide grosgrain ribbon, and vintage brads.
This second card was completely Philippa's own creation. She used Baroque Motifs stamp set, Blue Bayou, River Rock and Purely Pomegranite cardstock and ink, as well as brads.
Nice work Philippa!
I made these cards awhile ago (ie before I started my blog), but haven't given them away yet, because I really like them both.
I cased this first card from Sharon Dale's blog: http://digitalcreations.typepad.com:80/creations_from_the_heart/2007/11/scribbles-card.html. Mine is a little different. Sharon's blog is worth checking out, especially if you're a scrapbooker. She is published and has won a number of competitions.
Stamp sets: Scribble This, Linen (for the white edge around the card)
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, White offcuts
Ink: Stazon, Versamark (its hard to see in the photo, but I have used the swirls as a background on the Green Galore cardstock), Whisper White (for the Linen stamp around edge of card)
Accessories: Tempting Turquoise and Green Galore markers, circle punch, button, Whisper White narrow grosgrain, glue dots, dimensionals.
I cased this second card on Yvonne Campbell's blog, but is a little different.
Stamp set: Scribble This, Warm Wishes for greeting (retired hostess set)
Cardstock: Rose Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon, Rose Red, Cameo Coral and Old Olive markers

This is a very quick card I knocked up for my 13 year old nephew. Its great to have some stamps available now, that are suitable for teenage boys. The design is similar to one I watched Yvonne Campbell make. I like the effect of the tearing of the cardstock. Supplies -

Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White offcuts, Yoyo Yellow, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black (greeting)
