SP & Co. Sunday Inspiration - Happy Mother's Day!

 Welcome back to another installment of SP & Co. Sunday Inspiration. I came across a blog (my Aunty Sharon sent me the link) last week and I am seriously "addicted." KittieKraft has some wickedly amazing cards on her blog that involve many different techniques and elements, and I decided to give some of her tutorials a try....I did the ink-on-the-embossing-folder technique and also made some flowers using her techniques as well - what do you think:

I don't normally make cards like these, but I found myself staring in "awe" on her blog at all the gorgeous creations and I really love them so I wanted to try my hand at it. I really enjoy the Spellbinders technique too where you layer different "frames" and you can make them 3D or not...I decided to keep my frame flat this time. Maybe next time, I'll pop it up and make something different! So many possibilties! I really will enjoy this type of card for sentiment cards :) This sentiment is the single Mother's Day stamp from SP & Co:


Stamps: Mother's Day Single Stamp (SP & Co.)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Baja Breeze
Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Big Shot, Textiles Embossing Folder, Spellbinders, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, bird punch (leaves), Martha twig punch, pearls, glue dots, glue, stylus, dimensionals

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
