Just Us Girls #223 Paper Piecing!!

Oh, how I LOVE this technique!!  Thank you so much for offering us the "challenge", Sharyn!  It's so fun to look through my treasures (stamps) with Paper Piecing in mind!  they take on a whole new look!  Please check our blog for loads of inspiration!  JUGS BLOG.  There are some beautiful samples of this technique, I'm tellin' ya!!

My stamp is Standing Chicken from Whipper Snapper Designs.  You can find it HERE!  I think it is drawn by the amazing Anna Wight.  She draws the best chickens, bar none! Love Whipper Snapper!! I've had this one for a few years and this is my favorite card I've made with it~it's actually one of my fav cards ever.  I'm sorry, but I don't know where I got this sentiment.

As I mentioned, I love, love, love this technique so I created a number of cards using it in my efforts to inspire you.  So, without further adieu, her is another!

This one is from Purple Onion Designs.  It's drawn by Stephanie Ackerman and here is the link to her designs for Purple Onion.  Faith the Chicken (and friends!)  Great company to order from-ships really fast!  As you can see, I've used the same papers and similar colors for my companion card! The background is SUs embossing folder-Is it chicken wire or hexagons?  This time I know the 'hey chickie' sentiment is from Purple Onion!!
The dotted Kraft papers is from Papertrey Ink as is the Canyon Clay (rust) card stock.  In additon I've used Rustic Cream, Soft Suede,and Early Espresso.  The flowered paper is from Cosmo Cricket (an 8x8 pad), Honky Tonk, from last year.
Gotta run, after two days off of school (snow, cold days) I have to get some school work done for tomorrow (typing this on Wed. eve)
Please, won't you join us in the challenge for this week!  All our Chicks of the Week are entered in a chance to be chosen as our monthly guest designer! We'd love to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by!  have a great day and weekend!  
And a pic of the two together
I know my friend, Cindy will love these!  Her husband named our little stamping group The Card Cluckers!  We must sound like a bunch of hens when we get together!
