Talven ja joulun aikaa

Hauskaa lauantaita, tervetuloa vuoden viimeisen  Allsorts haasteen pariin! Pariviikkoisen haasteen aiheena on "kaikki talvinen käy."
Nämä korttisarjat lähtivät ystäville ja korttikavereille aina ulkomaita myöten. ( kuvissa vain muutama).

Happy Saturday, it's time for the last fortnight this year at Allsorts Challenge!  The theme is " Anything Winter goes", from  DT Lolo.
These cards shown today was my Christmas greetings to my friends ( there were several cards more).

DT Card Info:
Stamp: Pinkfresh Studios, stamped twice, rotated 180 degrees; Distress Inks, White embossing powder.
They all are different, depends on the blue colours.

Muistutan samalla myös, että vielä ehdit osallistumaan We Love Stamping  joulukuun "kaikki käy / cas eli simppelityyli" - haasteeseen.
Aikaisemmin näytin neliökortit samalla leimalla kokonaisena, tässä A6 kokoisena ja leimattu puolet ja kortti käännetty ja leimattu uudelleen.

I'm also reminding you about We Love Stamping  December Challenge "Anything goes / cas style" -
you still got time to make an entry.
Earlier this month I showed square cards with the same stamp, here's A6 size, stamped twice and then rotate the paper and stamp again. I used stamping plate in all these cards.

DT Card Info:
Stamp: Penny Black, Versafine Black ink, clear embossing, coloured with Promarkers.
Sentiment says: "the Christmas light ignites joy in the heart" ( google translate)


Please read the rules and prizes from the challenge blogs, straight links above and visit to see the fabulous samples from my DT mates. Kiitos / Thank you!

This posting is scheduled, there's one posting coming still before Christmas. I will show you some Christmas cards with flowers on. Tervetuloa vielä ensi viikolla katsomaan joulun kukkakortit;-))m

The stamping technique with the fir trees is such a good idea, it frames the sentiment so well! Love your PB card too, the stamp is lovely and I love the way you coloured it, in a CAS style.

Love the card you made for your friends reminds me of being on a ski lift! Your WLS sample is stunning, did not realise it is one stamp used 4 times everything fits together so beautifully. Great work Mervi xx

Ellibelle said...

Such beautiful cards, Mervi! Love the winter sky with the fabulous trees!
And such a pretty Penny Black stamp on your second card. Not sure I've seen that one before!

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

Love the way you have stamped the tree, lovely card all round, xxx

Mervi said...

Thank you Ellie. Merry Christmas 🎄

Pat said...

Very pretty cards Mervi and I love the look of the ring of trees with the sentiment in the middle. I think I might give that a try just by stamping a tree or two all round the edges. I love your beautiful florals too and it works well for cards and tags. x

Fabulous cards Mervi. I am feeling very honoured to be in possession of one of your tree cards. It really is quite stunning in real life. I love the depth you have created by using a dark ink and white heat embossing and your sky is very impressive. You can look at it and just imagine you are in the middle of a wintry forest. Great job. Your second card is impressive too. Wonderful colours and the partial colouring makes it look very stylish xx

Pia S said...

Your tree cards look stunning and so wintery with the blue hues.
And your CAS cards look fantatsic too.
