Thanks for joining me for my week as the Growing in Unity stamper! This is my third year as a GIU stamper if you want to see my other projects, click here.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment to be entered in the drawing for 25 random stamps & come back each day this week for a different creation from me!


I recently went on road trip/vacation for a week to Austin, Amarillo, and then home.  It was great…but, a TON of driving!  A friend watched the house and had to do something so extraordinary that I wanted to get her a REALLY nice gift.  She said no.  :(.

So, I immediately thought of this stamp!

Here is another project I made with this stamp.



  1. Card Base:  Bazzill cardstock – white.
  2. Background:  made with a Gelli plate on photo paper.
  3. Sentiment:  Unity Stamp – That Thing, embossing powder, Bazzill cardstock – blue and green, Distress Ink – Walnut
  4. Stripe: DCWV – Marquee paper stack
  5. Other:  Uniball – White pen

  1. I didn’t know you lived in Texas! Yep you did do a LOT of driving 🙂 Those are pretty extreme locations from one another. This card is gorgeous! I love friends like that! Doing the extraordinary because they love us! Great sentiment! Cool background! Love the colors! The stripe of paper was a nice accent. Thanks for sharing with us this week! I thoroughly enjoyed it 🙂

  2. Amazing colors. I love using my gelli plate when making cards or art journaling. It’s so fun and one can get so creative when using it! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations this week!

  3. Ah another Gelli plate user. I love the background and that card would bring a smile to anyone’s face. Nice following you this week. Thank for the inspiration.

  4. I love the card! Love the blues in the background. That is a great sentiment too. I have never used gelli paste; is it hard to use? Thanks for sharing your art this week!

  5. HA! I remember that dog from seeing your blog a couple of years ago. So cute. Anyway, I like your background. Very artsy.
