Welcome to week twenty nine of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop!
This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Merry Merlot from the neutrals family.
My Merry Merlot card uses some gorgeous products that are currently on sale during the four day Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Sale.
Until 18 November, these products from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalogue are on sale with the following discounts:
- 10% off all punches
- 15% of all stamps (Host stamp sets are not included in this sale)
- 20% off all dies
- 20% off all embossing folders
- 20% off all non-specialty and non-assortment Designer Series Paper
Here are the three products I’ve used in this card that are on sale right now.
The background pattern on the card front is created using an Artistic Mix Decorative Mask with some Crumb Cake gently sponged over the top. This is such a quick and easy way to customise a background.
All of the flowers and leaves were fussy cut from this sheet of Awash in Beauty DSP – it was easy to fussy cut this DSP design.
I love Merry Merlot at different strengths – it’s a gorgeous shade of pink.
The gold hoop is made using the largest and second largest of the Layering Circle dies. Die cut the largest circle first and then it’s easy to line up the second largest circle die.
I’ve decided to try a new thing with my cards going forward. Wherever possible, I’m going to make a couple of different sentiments for each card and I’m not going to adhere the sentiment until I know what I am using the card for.
Here’s my alternate sentiment for this card.
This sentiment is stamped in Versamark Ink on Crumb Cake card stock, then heat embossed with white Emboss powder before it was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Di Furniss – I can’t wait to see what Di has made this week!
If at any time you find a broken link, you can find the complete list of all participants below.

I hope you can join us then.
