Water Lilies


I began today’s card with a Coastal Cabana card base, a layer of Bermuda Bay, and topped it with the gorgeous, brushstroke, Lily Impressions Designer Paper.


First, I cut one large lily pad and two smaller ones from Bermuda Bay Cardstock, using the dies from the Lily Pad Die Set.

Second, I used dies from the same set to cut the water lilies, and used a paper-piecing technique. To accomplish this, I cut the two lilies from Noble Peacock Foil, which gives them a nice shine. Then, I cut the lilies a second time, from a piece of red, Lily Impressions Designer Paper.  Third, I added tiny dots of glue to the open spaces,  placing the petals in the proper space, much like a jigsaw puzzle.

TIP: Using the Take Your Pick Tool simplified filling in the “holes,”because I was able to pick up the tiny petals with the sticky point.


The sentiment, “Sending Hugs,” is from the Perfectly Framed Stamp Set from the Mini Catalog. This set was designed to fit the Ornate Frames Die Set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. How great is that!
