Welcome!  One of my favorite colors from Stampin UP® is Merry Merlot.  I think it gets overlooked a lot but it is such a beautiful color so I was glad to see Stampin Up® come out with a Designer Series Paper in the Jan-June 2021 Mini catalog that coordinates with Merry Merlot!  

Todays card I created while designing with the Fine Art Floral suite!  This suite has so many fun products.  One of the coolest is the Gilded Leafing Embellishment.  Watch the video below to watch as I made this card (spoiler alert – I made a ton of mistakes in the video while working with this so please watch with patient. LOL).  I am also including step by step instructions below!


Cut and Card Base – DSP = Designer Series Paper

Card Base – Merry Merlot – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4

Layer 1 – White – 2 1/4 x 4 1/4

Layer 2 – Fine Art Floral DSP – (2) 1 x 4 1/4

Layer 3 – White – 4 x 5 1/4

Layer 4 – White – 4 x 5 1/4


  1. Layer 1 – Using Mossy Meadow ink stamp the sentiment about an inch from the bottom edge. Wrap ribbon around just below the sentiment.  Then adhere to the card front about 1 1/2″ from right edge (this should center it) 
  2. Layer 2 – Adhere one to the left side of Layer 1 and one to the right side of Layer 1 keeping edges flush. 
  3. Layer 3 – Using Merry Merlot Ink stamp the flower image with three flowers then using Flirty Flaming do it again.  
  4.   – Next using the small detailed flower stamp, stamp the image over one of the leaves in each bundle.  Then cover with the Heat and Seal powder.  Dump off any excess powder.
  5.  –  Heat up with Heat Tool Note: Very Important to not overheat or it will loose it stickiness about 3 seconds works great! 
  6.  –  Now grab a piece of the Gilded Leafing Embellishment and lay over the heat and stick.  Press it down and when you fill like it has stuck good.  Use a soft brush to brush off the remaining Gilded Leafing. (Which you can put back into your container) 
  7.  –  Using the Floral Gallery Dies cut out both images then adhere them to the card front onto Layer 1.  I laid down the Flirty Flamingo one on the right side first then overlapped the Merry Merlot as shown. 
  8. –  Tie a bow with the ribbon and using a mini glue dot adhere it to both stems as shown. 
  9. Layer 4 – Stamp flower image in lower right hand corner in Flirty Flamingo ink.  Then using the Approaching Perfection stamp set (this is a Sale A Bration item) stamp sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink in the center.  
  10.  – Adhere to the inside of the card!
Here’s a look at a card  I did with a different Design from the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper!
