I was excited to see that This Birthday Piggy was one of the 6 stamp sets which have new die sets available for purchase during September. I had already purchased the stamp set as I loved it when it came out in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I loved the crisp outline images which are versatile for colouring and paper piecing and I also thought it was a great set for children's birthday cards. It has great sentiments too, in a really nice font. The dies just elevate that versatility even further. In addition to outline dies (and this set would have been tricky to fussy cut imo), the dies include a cute cart, extra gift, flowers, leaves, grass, a banner and the cutest little bandana for the pig!
You can purchase the dies by themselves as I did, or purchase the dies and stamp set together for a 10% discount. Browse all the 6 die sets available during the Perfect Partners promotion HERE.

Here's a card I have made with this bundle.
For this one I have blended some Pool Party ink onto Shimmery White cardstock and then coloured the image with Stampin' Blends. I used S1000 from the Neutrals Collection Stampin Blends for the pig, with some light Flirty Flamingo in the ears and on the nose. I used Mint Macaron for the candle and balloon, and Daffodil Delight for the candle flame. The cake is coloured with both shades of Flirty Flamingo. For the additional die cuts I have used crumb cake for the wagon, Mint Macaron for the gift and Flirty Flamingo for the banner and ribbon on the gift. I love the embossing detail from the dies, especially on the cute banner!
