I used the Best Day Ever Sale-A-Bration exclusive stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create a happy little flower card to share with you today.
I started by sponging a panel of the Irresistibly Yours DSP (Sale-A-Bration item) with Crisp Cantaloupe ink. Then I adhered the sponged panel to a panel of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock with SNAIL and to a Coastal Cabana card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the flower images (it’s the little group of 4 petals, I just stamped it twice) from the Best Day Ever stamp set (Sale-A-Bration item) on a Whisper White card base in Crisp Cantaloupe ink. Then I stamped the stem images in Pistachio Pudding ink under the flowers and I stamped the little heart image over the stems to look like leaves. I stamped the dot image several times in Coastal Cabana ink above the flowers. Some of the dot images were stamped without reinking, then I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock and to the card front with SNAIL.
I used my Fringe Scissors to snip a strip of Pistachio Pudding card stock along one side to make it look like grass, then adhered it to the card front with SNAIL I colored the sentiment image from the Best Day Ever stamp set with my Daffodil Delight, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I punched the sentiment out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and layered it over a circle cut from Coastal Cabana card stock with a Starburst Framelits Die. I adhered the layered sentiment circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I colored Pearl Basic Jewels with my Medium Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker (Sale-A-Bration Item, also available in the Annual Catalog) and adhered them to the center of the flowers on the card front to finish it.
I stamped the images from the Best Day Ever stamp set in Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding inks on a Whisper White panel inside the card.
***A Quick Note About the 2013-15 In Colors: Since I used some of the 2013-15 In Colors on my card today, I thought that I’d post a little reminder about this color group. This set of In Colors will be retiring at the beginning of June. If you love them as much as I do, right now is a great time to stock up on ink pads, ink refills, card stock, Thick Baker’s Twines and the sequins in those colors. You’ll earn Sale-a-bration benefits for your orders and you won’t need to worry about those items selling out before you can get them when the retiring list is announced later this year. So it’s a double bonus! 🙂 Some of these colors may make their way back into the core colors from Stampin’ Up!, but there are no guarantees that they will. And if they do, you’ll be all stocked up already!
You can find a complete list of supplies, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.

This is, without question, the prettiest “Best Day Ever” card I have seen on Splitcoast or the blogs I follow. I was disinterested in this stamp set but I am rethinking…
Thanks so much Melanie! That made my day. 🙂
So Pretty, Amy….like a burst of fresh spring air! Beautiful colors! Have you ever tried to color with markers on Photopolymer stamps? I noticed that the marker ink just does not give the same appearance as an ink pad. Just wondering about that…
Thanks so much Roberta! I have colored photopolymer images with my markers before and they don’t ink up quite as nicely as the red rubber images do, but I’ve found that if I color the image twice before stamping, it works better for me. Hope that helps! 🙂
I love everything about this card. What a great way to do the sky, love your color combo you have chosen, and I like how you stamped each flower twice. One of my favorites from you! So much like Spring on a bone chilling day.
Thanks so much Terri! Glad that you liked my card, it was definitely a fun one to make!
This is the best…card…ever!! How clever and cool the way you used the stamps to make the leaves on the stem 😉 The flowers are rockin’ too. Nice way to anchor the flowers with the fringe grass. These colors are some of my favorites and I hope that they do come back too. I am going to stock up on paper for sure and all the doodads to match 🙂 Back to your card, I am falling in love with this SAB DSP. I hope it might make a come back in the next catalog. It’s so, so versatile. Love the way you showcased it. Really fantastic card Amy, I love everything about it!!
Thanks Jill! I will be very sad when these colors retire. We can always hope for a color refresh with a few of them included. 🙂 The Irresistibly Yours DSP is awesome!!!! I’d love to see it in the big catalog too!
