Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Merlot Thanks

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are having a great start of the week.

Today’s card is one that we made at our quarterly meeting on Sunday. It was designed by one of my amazing team member Tara Carpenter. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Merlot Thanks 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle for my card today.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Night of Navy mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered card front to a Merry Merlot card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock, I cut the mesh die from the Chic Dies. I adhered it to the card front using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using the Chic Dies, I cut 2 of the detailed flowers dies from a panel of Distressed Gold Specialty Paper.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Distressed Gold Flowers to the card front using Glue Dots. I added a few Festive Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the swish image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the swish image. I stamped the outline flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the corners of the panel. I stamped the solid flower image in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, inside the outline image. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Night of Navy mat then to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set on the envelope front in Merry Merlot Ink. I stamped the solid flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, inside the outline image. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 


Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value (cardstock packs excluded) – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
