Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 26 Merry Merlot

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 26 Merry Merlot

Welcome to week twenty-six of our 2020-2021 Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase.

Each week various members of our Art With Heart Colour Creations team will be bringing you weekly colour inspiration as we showcase our range of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 26 – Merry Merlot

Hello crafters. This week I’m sharing a Christmas card I’ve made using an entirely neutral colour palette – I really love any combination of neutrals together on a card.

Merry Merlot is our colour for this week and I’ve only used a tiny bit of it on my card because it is a very rich colour. Hopefully I’ve used enough to show you how nicely it pairs with these other neutrals.

If there ever were two bundles just crying out to be used together it’s the Beautiful World bundle on p26 of the annual catalogue and the Peace & Joy bundle on page 18 of the August to December Mini catalogue. I love how Stampin’ Up! co-ordinate their products right through their range.

The “faux embossed” background of my Gray Granite slimline card was easy to make using the globe dies and adhesive sheets. Just remember to attach a sheet to the back of your card stock before you die cut. Next time I make this card I think I’ll add more globes and space them more closely together for even greater impact.

The joy sentiment uses all three joy die cuts from the Peace & Joy bundle. Adding adhesive sheet to the card stock for the thinest joy on the top layer makes it easy to adhere.

Apart from the middle layer of the joy sentiment the other touch of Merry Merlot on the card is the Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I have coloured using my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.

The pine fronds were stamped in Mossy Meadow and fussy cut out using my paper snips.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have created with Merry Merlot today. Click on the links below to see what they’ve made.

Next Tuesday we’ll be showcasing one of the Subtles: Mint Macaron. We hope you can join us all then.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 29 Merry Merlot

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 29 Merry Merlot

Welcome to week 28 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a beautiful new neutral: Merry Merlot.

Because we’re now 1 week until Christmas day I just couldn’t resist making another Christmas Card, one that features Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide glimmer paper and the Joyous Noel DSP.

Isn’t this glimmer paper stunning!

The stamp set I’ve used for my card is called Peaceful Noel and all these products are part of the Joyous Noel Suite.

I love the font of the sentiments in this stamp set and I’ve stamped both the outside and the inside of my card.

Here’s the inside.

My glittery baubles were a cinch to cut out from the glimmer paper using the detailed baubles thinlits and can you guess what I used to make the holly that sits at the top of each bauble?

The little leaves are from the boxwood wreaths with berries made from red rhinestone jewels.
