Fairy Galaxy Memorydex Card

Hello, hello! Samantha here to share my newest project with you; a fairy galaxy MemoryDex card. What is a MemoryDex card you ask? Well, it's kind of like a Rolodex card except bigger and better. Today I'm going to be using a punch to create the notches in mine but if you don't have a punch or a die there are many tutorials over on YouTube that show you how to make the notches by hand.

For this project you will need the following supplies:

  • A MemoryDex card punch, die, or some other way to create the notches
  • The Fairy Poem Sentiment Word Art stamp
  • The  Fairy Sitting Fantasy Art Rubber stamp
  • A piece of white cardstock measuring 4" x 4"
  • Inks for blending; yellow, teal, purple, and red violet (I used Distress Oxides in Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord, and Seedless Preserves)
  • White and Black paint
  • An old toothbrush
  • A coloring medium of your choice (I used Spectrum Noir markers)
  • Black pigment ink
  • Clear embossing powder
  • Clear shimmer brush


Stamp and color the fairy. Use your clear shimmer brush on her wings. Fussy cut her out and set aside.


Now we're going to make our galaxy. First apply your yellow ink.


Then your teal ink.


Followed by your red violet ink.


Finish with your purple ink.


If you used Distress Oxide inks spritz your card with water and let dry. Use your preferred method to create the notches in the bottom of your Memorydex card. Round the corners.


Squirt a bit of white paint onto your toothbrush. Rub your thumb across the bristles to get the paint to splatter on your card.



Repeat with your black paint.
Stamp your sentiment in black pigment ink and heat set with clear embossing powder. Adhere your fairy.



That's all for today. I hope that this will inspire you to create something new with your Blank Page Muse stamps. Be sure to head on over to the BPM Facebook fan group and tell us if you've ever made a MemoryDex card before.

Until next time,
Samantha
