Guest Designer July 2019



Cindy here to introduce you this July’s Guest Designer – Char Kochensparger, one of our former design team member !  I’d bet you’re familiar with her Digi Duel posts in the past, a talented lady indeed!!  Let’s see what she has installed for us.


Hey, friends, so happy to be guesting today at a2z! I love that this month’s challenge is Sparkle & Shine, because I’m all about the glitter!

I decided to make a card with a technique I saw on Jennifer McGuire’s blog and I wanted to try something a little different, so I cut the front off the card edge so my large die cut would jut off the edge. Keep in mind that I tried this technique on the pearl alcohol inks and the original inks. I couldn’t get good results with the pearl inks, though your results might be different. So I stuck with the original alcohol inks. Here’s how I created this one.



Supplies used:

I used Hero Arts Nesting Infinity Heart Dies but if you don’t have it, other dies such as Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Dies works just as well.


You can check out some of my social media for more projects. I’m @chark99 on IG and my blog is Glitter In My Kitchen
