New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!
It's time for a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time we are inspired by a fantastic photo: 

I loved this photo so much that I made two cards! I try to keep myself busy now while staying in, I feel that trying to stay creative is good for my mind. I'm happy that crafting blogs, IG and Youtube keep providing us relaxing content in the middle of all the worries of the world. I know many of us feel the same so if we have the time and we can, let's keep up crafting and let it lift up our spirits. Stay safe everyone! 

Stamps by Altenew and CASual Fridays (the small all black "flowers" are by CASual Fridays, everything else is by Altenew). 

I used an embossing folder in my second card. Love the two tone look that you get by adding ink to your folder before running it through your die cutting machine! I did this twice to get a really even coverage. The brown card I used was pretty soft and porous, I think that also helped for getting the ink to "sink in". 

The sentiments are heat embossed but otherwise these are just simply stamped cards. Love these stamps by Altenew so much! 

Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you joining us! Lots of more DT inspiration in our challenge blog! 

I'd like to join:
Simon Says Wednesday challenge: Whatever the weather


  1. FYI, I can’t see your cards on the Ink post. The first one is brilliant, a bit Marimekko-ish, it’s such a great reproduction of the wall paper in the photo. The second card is a stunner too, love the two toned embossed panel.

  2. Gorgeous cards here Nonni! great designs and use of colour too ;) Viv xx

  3. These two cards are stunning and I'm glad you were so inspired by the photo...I love that mid-20th -century style and you've really captured it (in a contemporary way!) on your cards.

  4. A duo of crisp, fresh, delightful, contemporary and gorgeous cards! As you can likely tell: I LOVE these!! Hope you're keeping safe and healthy!
