Birdie Stamps:  Artist Joyce A. Meyer

   For three years, I've watched Joyce get excited over paper-piecing!  All the detailed cutting.  Ugh!  Not for me -- until -- Joyce started drawing and paper-piecing birdies.  Wow!  With each paper piece, the birdies took on different styles and personalities.  Then she would add bling and make bookmarks.  OK.  I'm in!  
   Then I started looking at our Texana Designs stamps in a much different light.  I started digging through all my scrap papers and well, the ideas started flying!

The last card, with the Texas Flag and Star Trio, was given to me by friend and Design Team Member Linda McClain.  She made this card for me 2-3 years ago.  Loved it then and love it now.  Thanks, Linda!

Now, paper-piecing is one of my favorite techniques.  Right up there with my Copics!

  1. So pretty! I learned the paper piecing at the first class I took with you and Joyce and I have used it several times! I absolutely love it! People are so impressed when they receive a cute card with a unique and intricate design on the cover! What a sweet (and quick) way to impress even the advanced card crafters!
