Stampin' Up!® Happy Birthday Chick


Happy Monday!  Did you know that Stampin' Up!'s Hey Birthday Chick stamps & dies are still available?  I haven't seen much about them lately, and since these little chicks are among my favorite stamps, I thought it was time to create a new card with them!  I find coloring this crazy chicken with Stampin' Blends to be incredibly fun.  What off the wall color scheme would you use with this one? 

Card Base ~ Granny Apple Green Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 11", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Pattern Party Designer Series Paper ~ 3/4" x 5-1/2"
Layer 2 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3-1/4" x 5-1/2"
Layer 3 ~ Flirty Flamingo Cardstock ~ 1-1/4" x 2"

Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Stamp the chicken with the cupcake in left-center of Layer 2 with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  • Make a Post-It Note mask of the chick & cupcake with the coordinating die. Place it on the stamped chicken.
  • Create a background around the chicken with Blending Brushes, Granny Apple Green Ink and Pool Party Ink.
  • Remove the mask, and color the chicken & cupcake with Stampin' Blends. 
  • Place Layer 3 on a 1-1/4" x 2" piece of a Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Put the 'Happy Birthday' die on top of that and die cut it.  (I suggest running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine a few times to make sure it cuts all the way through)
  • Adhere Layer 1 to the Card Base, about 1/4" from the bottom. 
  • Use Liquid Glue to attach Layer 2 to the Card Base, slightly layered over Layer 1. 
  • Place 'happy birthday' in the upper-right corner.
  • Add a few Holiday Rhinestones around the sentiment, as shown. 

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the little chick and sentiment on the Inside Layer, as shown.  Mask the chick, then add a touch of Granny Apple Green around it.  After removing the mask, color the chick.  Then, adhere the Inside Layer to the inside of the card. 

I hope this card inspires you to create something fun.  These crazy chicks STILL make me smile every time I pull them off the shelf!  :)

Happy Stamping!
