The Best Day Stamp Set allows you to celebrate the people in your life and wish friends and family a happy birthday. This playful stamp set features fun birthday imagery and greetings that will make everyone feel unique on their special day! Use the birthday cake or the cute little critter sitting in the muffin cup as the focal point of your cards, pair with one of the greetings of the set, then add the swirls or confetti streamers images as you wish to complement your projects—use the little image repeatedly to create a fun background or border, or stamp it inside a card or on an envelope!

Scrappy Weave Technique:

The Scrappy Weave technique is a fun and easy way to add dimension and texture to your handmade cards. It involves weaving strips of patterned paper, cardstock, or both to create a colorful and eye-catching design. Here's how to get started:

  1. Choose your paper: Select two or three coordinating pieces of patterned papers or cardstock. Cut them into 1/2 inch strips.

  2. Weave the paper: Take one strip and weave it through the other strips, alternating over and under each strip until you have a square or rectangle shape.

  3. Adhere the paper: Once you have your woven design, adhere it to a piece of thin paper or cardstock with strong adhesive and then to your card base.

  4. Embellish: Add additional embellishments like ribbon, die cuts, or stickers to further enhance the design.
