More projects from CHA's show

Here are some more projects we made for the CHA Supershow classes sponsered by Ye Olde Outhouse. This is the alcohol ink vase we made using a clear glass lidded jar. We used three of my fav Ranger alcohol ink colors, Ginger, Red Pepper and Copper Mixative, covered the vase and added CHF's Silhouette Blooms and sentiments to the sides. In the final project, we completed it with brown gingham ribbon tied around the top of the jar. Also, although I don't have pictures of them, we made two double sided, Cricut cut, 6-layer, Cuttlebugged, sanded, textured flowers on floral sticks to add to the vase. Chock full of technique, I tell ya!!

There is always more to teach! I love techniques! The next card is an adapted card from Gina K's Stamp TV gallery. With permission from the woman who designed the Gina K card and using CHF stamps, I put together this project to teach the wood graining technique using a Scor Pal. This little guy from Cornish Heritage Farm's Kim Hughes U R A Hoot set was VERY popular with the class! Remember the post with the grad card I made using the same idea several weeks before CHA? (in my summer of pictures post!)

And finally for today, this set of projects was called County Blues. Deby and I again taught use of alcohol inks on this (originally white) candle holder and on a CASED card from an SCS'er (also with permission) used Nesties for the circles and Core'dination paper to rip layers to make a Mountain and Sea card. The "mountains" were more mountain-y on the actual class model card with a different CHF image! This heat embossed flower image is actually a retired CHF stamp. We used CHF's Nature's Silhouette II stamp set with the Boxwood and Bayleaf stamps on the actual workshop card!
