Blending & Bling

Hi everyone and happy Saturday!  It's Jules on the blog today sharing something a little different.  Today, I'd love to share my latest crafting obsession... memorydex cards.  And the stamps in the Quotables Sentiment stamp set are perfect to make a whole set of memorydex cards.  Yep, I'm sure so many of you have used these and had so much fun... but it's all still new for me, so indulge me in my new journey.
I really wanted to use this beautiful quote by Dolly Parton, "If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours."  With all going on, smiles are so needed.  Well, let's get into this fun part:

Step 1:  Die cut your memorydex card or just make one using many referenced measurements.

Step 2:  Blend the background using Oxide inks:  Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick & Seedless Preserves

Step 3:  Stamp the quote using VersaFine Clair.

Step 4:  Splatter a mix of Perfect Pearls and water on the background.  I masked the sentiment a little to avoid have the splatters on the words.

Step 5:  Embellish!  I used some leaf dies, sequins and a dragon fly chipboard that I heat embossed with glittery embossing powder.

Yep, it's just that easy!  How fun would it be to use all of these beautiful sentiments.  These also make for great trading cards.

I hope you enjoyed this quick blog using the "Quotables" stamp set in something other than a card.  If you use Memorydex cards, I'd love for you to share some of your favorites!
