Well – good morning on Friday!! And…is this a long weekend for some of you? Martin Luther King Day – for some will be a day off – if that’s you – hope you’ve got something fun planned. 🙂
If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live – I appreciate you spending part of your week with me. 🙂 If not – and you’d like to have a peek at the replay -here ’tis on YouTube!
Y’all know I like a good easel card. I’ve done SINGLE easels. I’ve done DOUBLE easels. When I ran across a video from Dawn Griffith with a TRIPLE EASEL!! – I jumped on it! I decided to make a pretty popped-up scene using New Horizons DSP and the Grassy Grove stamp set, with its bundled Grove Die Set. Take a look-see:
I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for my card base. Before going further, I stamped the back of the panel with the pretty pine tree image in Evening Evergreen.
On the front, I used Liquid Glue to adhere an Evening Evergreen strip across the bottom of the panel (with the edges lined up).
I created three easel cards – a large, medium and small – in Pale Papaya (you’ll need 12″ x 12″ paper for this card).
Large: 4″ x 12″ – scored at 4″, 6″ and 8″ (folded as Valley – Mountain – Valley)
Medium: 3″ x 9″ – scored at 3″, 4 1/2″ and 6″ (folded as Valley – Mountain – Valley)
Small: 2″ x 6″ – scored at 2″, 3″ and 4″ (folded as Valley – Mountain – Valley)
Each of the easels got Stampin’ Seal on the smaller panel (between the Mountain and second valley folds) to adhere the two parts together and create the easel.
NOTE: it’s a LOT easier to see how to do this on the video. Fast scrub the video to about the 8 minute mark to see how to put the little easels together! 🙂
I used the trees image in the Grassy Grove set to stamp some trees on the largest New Horizons DSP square in Evening Evergreen ink. Then I matted it on Evening Evergreen and adhered it to the “front” of the large easel. I matted and adhered a different pattern of the paper on the base panel of the easel.
I repeated the steps on the medium and small easels.
Using the two deer dies in the Grove Die set, I cut a mama and a baby deer from Early Espresso. I used Liquid Glue to adhere the larger deer to the front of the medium easel and the small one to the smallest easel.
I adhered the large easel to the card base, using Liquid Glue. I butted the bottom of the panel right up against the Evening Evergreen strip.
I adhered the next two easels with Liquid Glue – spacing the medium easel midway on the Evening Evergreen strip and the small easel with the bottom right at the bottom edge of the card base.
The sentiment, from Grassy Grove, is stamped in Evening Evergreen on Basic White and cut with the smallest rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die. I popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals – it’s the easel stop for the smallest easel.
I added some Brushed Brass Butterflies here and there on each of the easels and the card was…done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Grassy Grove trees in Evening Evergreen on the front….
…and more of the New Horizons DSP on the envelope flap.
In the video, I used some Heart & Home woodgrain DSP for the base panels – cuz I was out of the Pale Papaya New Horizons DSP. Check it out!
And – gotta show you…
…I stuck a tiny Brushed Brass Butterfly right on the baby bambi’s schnoozle! 🥰🥰
Et Voila! THREE easels? Yes, please! This is such a cool fun fold! I love how the New Horizons DSP creates a pretty backdrop for the sweet deer silhouettes, don’t you? The Grassy Grove stamp set is lovely – and I haven’t even tapped all the wonderful dies in the bundled Grove Dies!!
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
Yesterday morning we were eating breakfast in the kitchen – in our usual spots..
When all of a sudden – Finn lets out a growl that…Cujo would have been proud of.
Not the I-see-a-figment woof.
Nope. Full-on. Deep in his chest. Blood-curdling. Growl.
I think….Oh my Lordy. What does he see??
An escaped convict?
I get up to look and…it’s worse.
It’s those dastardly deer! TOOCLOSETOOCLOSETOOCLOSE! Considering coming up the STAIRStothebackdoorGETAWAYGETAWAYGETAWAY! He said ALL of this without ever raising his voice – just that long. Menacing. Growl.
And go away they did.
Dastardly – but…not stupid!
