Flowers and polka dots

As I mentioned yesterday, you'll see plenty of cards inspired by the swaps from our last meeting. Here's another one. This is one of the Mother's day cards I made this year. The stamp set is a new stamp set that will be in the new catalog in July. I can't believe it's almost time for a new catalog! The retiring stamp set and accessory list will be out in just a few weeks! The Stampin' Up! year is flying even if my year is dragging on.

Isn't it pretty though? I really like these colors together, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip. I think Chocolate Chip is great with ANY color though.
The card is very simple, I used the big shot polka dot background and the scallop circles die #2. The big shot is amazing and in just seconds you get a beautiful card though it looks like it took a long time!
Stamp Set: Flowers Awash, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Carstock: White, Chocolate Chip, So Saffon
Ink: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, More Mustard, Old Olive, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Sponges, Big Shot, Polka Dot dies embossing folder, Scallop Circles die #2, Chocolate Chip striped ribbon, dimensionals, coluzzle cutter
By the way I've had a couple requests for making the cow card. The card or body itself is cut with the coluzzle cutter-any circle cutter will work. Don't cut a full circle. Leave the seam at the top and cut the rest of the circle around that. The spots are all randomly cut out. And the rest of the cow is done with punches as follows:
Ears: Small and large Oval
Head: 1 3/4 inch circle
Nose: Wide Oval
Eyes: 3/4 and 1/2 inch circle punch
nostrols: 1/4 inch circle punch
Legs and hoofs: Word Window and 1/2 inch circle
Hope that helps!
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!
