Bloom Street MemoryDex Cards by Kelly Daye

Friday, June 19, 2020

Hello, hello! Kelly Daye here with another Bloom Street project for Paige’s Silhouette Design Team. I’ve changed things up today and designed MemoryDex cards. If you’re creating a MemoryDex of your own, you already know it’s a super fun way to use up bits of a collection. Also, I must admit, I find mini things so darn cute.
Here are the backs of all the cards so they're pretty on both sides!
I call my first card "Sunshine in a Jar." How handy would that be on a gloomy day? It’s a shaker card made using a plastic page cover because it’s easy to cut and sew. It was cut out using the offset of the  Mason Jar cut file. The palm trees, beach umbrella, and sun are from the Summer Wreath cut file and the rainbow is part of the Rainbow cut file. Gold glitter doubles as a sandy beach.

The assembled sunny scene was sewn into the clear plastic jar using gold thread then sequins were spilled inside before sewing it shut. The colorful Puffy Word Stickers were perfect for adding ‘SHINE’ to the outside. I used the 6x8 Paper Pad for most of the paper backing and all cut files are made with white cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo 3.

My next card was inspired by world events as of late. Paige’s Geometric Peace Sign cut file was backed with another piece of paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad then backed with acetate and popped up with foam tape to create a shaker card. The foiled paper adds a nice sparkle in the background.

As I spin around my MemoryDex, I see both sides of a card so I always like to have a little bit of something on the back side. This is just a personal preference and twice the fun. When the peace sign rolls over, you see HOPE.

The glitter backing was made by layering 1/4” Score Tape on a slightly smaller circle. You start at the top, remove the cover off one row of tape, and sprinkle with glitter. Tap off the excess and move on to the next row. I also machine stitched over the words, leaving the thread ends messy. A phrase from the Cardstock Stickers was popped up over the middle with foam tape. The tiny butterflies are fussy cut from Washi Tape.

The base of my final card was made with a MemoryDex Die by Heidi Swapp and another paper from the MemoryDex. The card is built up by backing Paige’s Stained Glass Heart cut file with vellum then layering floral stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book and butterflies from the Ephemera Die Cuts. The LOVE letters were fussy cut from a tag on Paper 01 and tucked in and on the layers.

When the card turns over the back side reveals a stitched background made with Washi Tape and some extra tapes from my stash. I stitched with four colors of DMC embroidery floss and gold thread, leaving loose ends to add texture. I may add something more, but for now I’m just happy to enjoy all the pretty colors and patterns.

Thanks so much for your visit and hope you can adopt an idea or two for your own pretty cards!
