Happy Congratulations Coming Your Way!


All of my CLOclub members get a chance at being hostess and therefore harvesting all the Hostess benefits from the club order!  They sometimes also host a separate workshop in their home to add orders and thus more Hostess Dollars!  Susana did just that . . . and ended up with $65 Hostess Dollars to spend on anything and the chance to also purchase one item for 1/2 price!  She was thrilled.  Way to go, Susana!

This card was one we made at her workshop - another Clean-n-Clever card, enjoyed by all her guests.


The ribbon end is looped under and attached to itself with a couple Gluedots, the ends were banner cut, and the whole piece just fastened to the card with Snail adhesive!



I made a few extra for myself in an alternate color scheme . . .






All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

See Ya Later, Alligator!

I liked the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that came out this spring and really wish they had continued into the Annual Catalog.  But such is not the case with SAB sets.  "See Ya Later' was one of my faves - especially since I used to sing the Sunshine song to all of my little ones - even when they weren't so little anymore!

This is a card we made in CLOclub, complete with alligator 'skin'!


We texture embossed the Gumball Green Core'dinations paper with the Decorative Dots folder and then sanded the dots to make it look like alligator skin.  The Baker's Twine is wrapped around the inside of the card, threaded through the button holes, and tied in a bow. The button is secured with a Gluedot and then a Dimensional for height, overlapping the banner attached with Dimensionals.  The stamp was inked up with a Summer Starfruit ink pad and then we used the Gumball Green marker to color portions of the stamp before stamping the whole image.



All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  See Ya Later (SAB '14)
Ink:  Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green marker
Paper:  Baked Brown Sugar, Gumball Green Core'dinations, Sweet Sorbet DSP, Whisper White
Extras:  Summer Starfruit Thick Baker's Twine, Brushed Bronze Designer Buttons, Banners Framelits dies, Dimensionals.
Inspired by:  a lot of Pinterest alligator ideas!
