NOT Robins

I've been playing with the lovely Woodware robins stamp set that I won in the Playground this time last year. I thought at the time that it really didn't need to be used just for robins, but I've never quite got round to using it any other way.

However last week I spotted this  pin on Pinterest where the stamps were used for paper piecing, and I thought this would be a great way to use snippets. So here is my CASE of the idea:

I drew the "ground" using the edge of a deckle edged tearing ruler and added a sentiment stamped with a Studio G mini set. Then I stamped a line of "robins" stamping each again onto a snippet of patterned paper and pieced each one onto its image.

I am sharing this with
Pixie's Snippets Playground (of course!)

Great idea to use the edge of deckle scissors for a nice straight line. Looks fantastic!

Squeal! Oh Jane, I absolutely LOVE this card! What a perfect way to use little snippets with those birdies. I might very well have to CASE this in some way, clever you!

Such a sweet card! The paper piecing is darling and gives such a fresh look to your non-robins!!

Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week! I was able to link your card with no issues this end. So sorry it caused you grief. We really don't understand what the problem is!
