Morehead Stamps...shhhhh

Happy Tuesday with Stacy!!  I just got back from spending the weekend at the lake with my kids and boy was it hot!!  108 degrees!  Phew!!  lol  I decided I needed to cool things off a bit so I picked this sweet image from the upcoming Morehead stamp collection.  It has a little cool rain falling on the head of a little cutie pie.  Shhhhh don't tell anyone I'm showing it to you since they don't come out until next week!!  It will be our secret!! ha
I stamped out the image and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I'm still totally loving them and I know you would too if you owned them. 
I found an acetate die cut in my stash that just seemed to fit this project perfectly.  I made the base of my easel card from pearlized card stock.  After layering complementary colored card stock I adhered the acetate die cut over my colored image. 

I pulled out some Washi tape that I purchased recently (and have been dying to use...ha).  I made little flags and stapled them onto the front of my card with my tiny attacher.  And then grabbed a couple of die cut acetate butterflies to glue to the front also.  I folded up their wings to give some depth and dimension.

For the inside of the card, I layered my complementary card stock.  Then I cut out a piece of card stock, glued down my sentiment on it and added some bright blue brads.  I adhered it to the card with some double sided foam adhesive.  This gives dimension and it gives a spot where the top card can rest when it is open. 

Finally, I got that Washi tape out again and added two long strips of it to the top and bottom of the card stock on the inside.  I just wanted to play with the Washi tape some more (hehe) and by doing this it carried the color from the outside of the card to the inside.

I hope you enjoyed your sneak peak.  Thanks for stopping by and looking today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!
