Flower paper piecing

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hello all Lost Coast fans. Cathy here with 2 paper piecing projects for you.
 This for one I started out with a oval wood piece. I took scraps of scrapbook paper and glued them all over the wood piece. Then I edged it with black ink. Sit this aside and let it dry. As this was drying I started working on the second card.
After I cut out what I needed for the card I had so much left over so I stamped the sketchy lily on the wood piece. I used the left over scraps from the flowers I stamped for the card and cut out petals for this and edged them with black ink and glued them down.
That is now done. You could add this to a front of a card or what ever you wanted. I don't know what I shall use this for.
 For this I die cut the shape out of the blue scrapbook paper and then stamped the sketchy lily on to it. Then on 5 different scrapbook papers I stamped the flower   and cut out 1 petal from each paper. 1 paper I cut 2 petals. Next I stamped the leaves on some green paper and cut out. Edged them all with blank ink and then glued it all down. I was going to just glue this to the front of the card but it looked to small there so I used my die cut of the same shape and cut it out from the front.

Then I took that blue scrapbook paper and die cut a larger of that shape and attacked it to the front of the card. Then I took the corner swirl and stamped it with some blue ink on the top and that is my card .
I hope to see you join the challenge here


  1. These are lovely Cathy. I love the collaged background and also that you used the wood substrate. I think it makes a lovely piece of art just as it is. The flower is such a pretty image. Hugz
