No cards for ages then 2 in one day!
Here is my contribution for the challenge at CAS Mix Up which this time is Paper Piecing!

For this I used a chicken stamp from an Inky Doodles set.  I used to  buy from the designer at Craft shows at the NEC, but I don't seem to have been to one of those for a very long time! Although I've had it for years, I think that this is the first time that it has been used.
I stamped the image on to a piece of white card and then on to different areas on a piece of Christmas DP with poinsettias all over it! Even after carefully selecting the areas to stamp and cut out for the body of the hen, I still decided to darken the neck feather section a little more, using a marker. This image seemed quite appropriate for paper piecing as it is in three definite areas.
The sentiment is from Stampendous. A little sticking and die-cutting (I just had to shorten the sentiment cut a tad) and the card was done. I'm now about to set off for the tip to take all the packaging from our new kitchen tables and chairs, plus the old built in fridge from our last kitchen!
CASology Hello



  1. So chose the precise places on your patterned papers to make your chicken pop. Shading the area for the ruff was an excellent idea, adds so much depth to her. Thank you for joining us at CAS Mix Up.

  2. Gosh, who would guess that you used paper piecing and not water coloring for your sweet Hen, Chrissie. Your stitched border for the hen and sentiment were perfect for your very CAS card design, my friend. So pleased you joined us at CAS Mix Up. Love and Hugs....Nancy

  3. Gosh that is some super paper piecing and I do like you added the extra touch of colour, you can see the definition. Love the textured base and the placement of the sentiment-will be a long time before those craft events happen I think! I have only been to one at Alexandra Park once and spent way too much! Thanks for joining CASology-always good to see you here x

  4. WOW! Great job with the paper piecing, your little hen looks fab. Love all the stitched detail too. Thank you for playing along at CAS Mix Up!
