Helen’s Workshop

Yesterday Helen hosted a workshop at Theresa’s and we had a great time.  Theresa is a terrific cook and made monkey bread for us to start on and a marvelous lunch of two kinds of quiche and an apple salad.  Janice brought her lemon fluff dessert which finished off our day perfectly.  I forgot my camera, but managed to take a few pics with my phone!  As always, click on the pic to enlarge it and hit back to return to post.

First up, a coupla monkeys going for the monkey bread!

Helen and her hostess gift.  Instead of candies it was full of ribbons and other little SU goodies.

Here’s our first make and take, made with Bells and Boughs DSP, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke cardstock and Tags Till Christmas stamp set.  We used the decorative label, circle scallop and eyelet border punches, and the Petals a Plenty embossing folder.  Punched out a cherry cobbler decorative label and scalloped circle and after cutting the decorative label in half and trimming off the little points by the cut, layered all three together for a punched up focal point popped up on dimensionals.

Here’s our second make and take using sweet treat cups and Sweet Snowglobe.  Colors of CS are Marina Mist, Whisper White and Bashful Blue.  I think on this sample, I took a q-tip to the trees and house to remove the bashful blue ink from the stamp, then colored on the rubber with red and green markers.  In the class, we just stamped the image with bashful blue and colored right over it.  Worked great.  A glue pen, glitter, fluffy snow and ribbon finished it off.
