God Loves You - Sami Stamps Easter Release!

Hi Everyone!
We have an awesome new release at Sami Stamps and we are starting a fun new challenge!
I am currently on a blogging/crafting break so this post is scheduled.
Hopefully it pops up correctly!!

This fun new release is all about Easter!
I have chosen to use the Tulip Easter Egg image for my card.
This was such a gorgeous image to work with, I knew I had to put a cross on the card somehow.  Little side placements didn't seem to fit the image well, so I figured why not just put the cross right through the middle.  I love how it looks!!

I also decided to do some simple watercoloring on the background in some pale yellows.  Over top of that I stamped some white circles and embossed those with some clear sparkly embossing powder.  It just helps to add a little texture and detail to the card, without too much distraction.

Since our new challenge is paper piecing, I did my best to stick with that for the tulip egg.  I printed the whole thing off onto some blue patterned paper and framed that with a piece of scallop cut vellum.

Then I set to work on the tulips. Those are printed onto some really cool watercolory type purple paper.  I added a little shading at the base of each petal and then cut them all apart so I could add little bits of dimension behind each individual petal.  It was lots of work, but it looks so amazing that it was totally worth it!!

I stamped the sentiment below the flowers, and then went back in later with some black embossing powder to help separate it a little from the image (something my wonderful husband pointed out to me.  Love it when his eye catches something mine doesn't :) ).

So be sure to stop by Sami Stamps to see the rest of this amazing release and what the design team has done with it!!  And then join in our paper piecing challenge!!

Thanks for visiting! <3
