Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 29 – Merry Merlot

Today’s card was inspired by Amy Shihinski (in Canada), but I needed to change it up to suit our Metric measurements here in the South Pacific. If you wish to see Amy’s measurements, there will be a link at the end of this post.

I made this card for my hubby’s birthday on Sunday. He accompanied me to Sydney so I could attend OnStage on Saturday with 500 crafty friends, he spent the day wandering around Sydney by himself and had a wonderful time. Not sure why he wouldn’t attend OnStage with me, LOL!

Anyway, I carefully carried this card all the way to Sydney in my luggage to surprise him on Sunday morning.

I have used the Brewed for You Bundle and the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gold Brushed Metallic Foil.

The stamping is all done in Black Memento, Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot inks and die cut using the coordinating Brewed dies. The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint was added to the beer glasses and heated with the Heat Tool to activate.

Here is the real wow of this card when you open it!

You may notice that the sentiments and the beer glass look a little different on the inside, as they were not going to fit on the card. Never fear, I just adapted. The glass wasn’t going to fit as it was too tall, so I cut the top off down to the beer level and added the froth! The sentiments across the centre panels, I had to carefully ink up individual words, covering the ones I didn’t want, covered with some washi tape (remember to remove the tape before stamping onto the card though!).

Here are my measurements (metric):
Merry Merlot A5 card base: 14.8cm x 21cm, scored in half @ 10.5cm
Basic White Card insert: 20cm x 14cm (see image below)
Merry Merlot Matt layers: 4.5cm x 4.5cm (8), 2cm x 3.5cm (4), 4.5cm x 3.5cm (2)
Lights Aglow SDSP layers: 4cm x 4cm (4)
Gold Foil layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 1.5cm x 3cm (4)
Basic White layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 4cm x 3cm (2)

Poinsettia Christmas

Week 27 – Merry Merlot

Tonight we are featuring this gorgeous deep tone, which reminds me so much of a rich glass of red wine!!

Poinsettia Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

My card base and poinsettia flowers are Merry Merlot with Evening Evergreen leaves (these are die cut with the same die). The twigy pieces are cut from the Snowy White Velvet Sheets and the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Papers. I used the White Chalk Marker to add dots to the petals.

The background layer is Shimmery White cardstock (for extra sparkle), dry embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D TIEF in the Cut & Emboss Machine. Two corners rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch.

The Tailor Made Tag dies cut out the sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) and I curled it around a pen before adhering it to the card on dimensionals.

The inside is decorated in a similar way with two corners rounded, a simple sentiment stamped with a poinsettia in the bottom corner.
