ATU02 Challenge

All Things Unity is a new blog and challenge spot for lovers of Unity Stamps. This card is for their second challenge about going green. You can use green colors, recycle something in your card or use scraps. I did all three in one card! The corrugated cardboard strip and "Caution Darn Hot Coffee" sentiment are from a used restaurant coffee sleeve and I used up some paper scraps too. Check out their blog at:

Picking Up The Pieces Challenge

I love Unity Stamps! This pumpkin came from the Sept. 2009 Kit of the Month. If you haven't discovered Unity yet, go check out their website and see what you think. I am a Kit Club Member because the monthly kits are just so stinkin' cute. If you decide you want to be a Kit Club Member too, tell them I, (Carol Bloomberg), sent you and I'll get a free gift, gotta love free!

Happy Easter

For this fun Easter card I used the emboss resist technique to make the dyed egg, then decorated it with various trims.

Card Patterns Weekly Sketch 57

Just a fun and simple Back To School Card.

Posh Designs Scrapbook Store Sketch Challenge No. 11

For this sketch challenge I made my own strip of "Crazy Quilt" paper. I laid down scraps of paper onto double sided adhesive leaving space between for glittery embossing powder. After heat embossing simply peel off the backing and adhere to card. Now it is hard to throw out even the smallest of scraps!

Cuttlebug Challenge Easter Card

I used the Cuttlebug to dry emboss the card and cut the egg and labels using Nestabilities. I dyed the Easter Egg paper using the shaving cream technique, which is so fun to do. Hope you like it!

A Muse Lounge Challenge

This card was inspired by one of Julie Ebersole's Creations that I saw on Split Coast Stampers. Hers was done in tones of red/pink. I did mine in the colors of my husband's favorite Coffee Shop, can you guess the name????

Here's another entry for the "Sunshiney" Challenge on Although there is no sun on the card I think it has a sunny, Spring feeling to it. Love those fun Unity Stamps!

I love this new cling stamp from Hero Arts, one of my favorite stamp companies. Instead of ink, I used Ranger's Acrylic Paint Dauber in an aqua color called Pool. I then used Stickles for the flower centers. The pattern paper is from K and Company and the sentiment stamp is from Unity. This was my first try using acrylic paint insteaad of ink and I like the result. The paint cleans off the stamp with water, no problem!
