It's been awhile since I have created a card.  Do you find that when you have been away from creating that it takes some time to get focused again?  I sure did.  It felt like I forgot how to create!  But, I do have a card to share with you.

The Kind & Cozy stamp set from Stampin' Up reminds me of a picnic on a warm summer day.  Because the weather has been so nice, I thought that it would be fun to make a card to match the weather.

Although the 4th of July has come and gone, I am still in the mood for patriotic colors.  And, they fit with the "picnic" theme.

Did you notice the strip of homemade washi tape?  I stamped an image from the Tape It stamp set on Cardstock Vellum and cut it out with my Snips.  Look closely and I think you can tell that it is the top banner with the chevron pattern.  

A word of caution.  Be sure to use the  Heat Gun on setting 1 to dry the ink.  If you don't, you might find that your ink will smear.  Ask me how I know!
