Today I am sharing a brand new bundle of products that have stolen my creative heart this week.  The HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK STAMP SET features in the 2021 January - June Mini Catalogue and Stampin' Up! have just released coordinating BIRTHDAY CHICK DIES that really make this set even more fun!  When you purchase the stamps and dies together as a BUNDLE you can save 10% too!

Whenever I get a new stamp set that needs to have colour added to it, I find the best thing to get those creative ideas flowing is to stamp it with black ink and add colour gradually.  I felt quite overwhelmed with the chicken images initially and wasn't sure whether to try and colour them so they look realistic, or go completely the opposite direction.  After adding just a little bit of colour to certain parts of the images, I quite liked the way the images were coming to life so decided to create a monochrome style card!

I have used a layer of the TRUE LOVE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER for my background layer and added a simple circle shape that I have cut using the STITCHED SHAPES DIES.  I love the way that just adding the small colour details makes the images really pop!

The sentiment has been die cut using the coordinating BIRTHDAY CHICK DIES and I have layered 2 together before attaching to my card front. 

Of course I have added some extra details to the inside of the card and I just had to stamp the little chicken again as it really is just so cute!  I have added some more layers and another one of the fun sentiments. 

I created this card design during a recent Facebook Live demonstration which you can watch back by clicking the link below to head over to my YouTube channel.  Whilst you are watching the video feel free to subscribe to my channel; you will receive notifications whenever I add future tutorials too.
