Had a lot of fun with these easel cards for Be Virtuous stamp set.  For my first basic easel I combined an easel card with a shaker card!  so for this card you get two for one!  just felt I had to cut out the bamboo then had all that open space so what do you do with open space ..... add a piece of acetate and create a shaker!  My second card is a new way to do a triple easel card. In the past here you can see another type of triple easel card. This new way is so easy using Spellbinders Nestabilities it's just one, two three you are done.
 
Oh yes, did I mention the theme for this month is easel cards!  regular easels, twisted easels, shape easels and more! Next stop is Janine so please see what she has to show you.

  1. Beautiful easel cards again today! Gorgeous colors! I need to remember that the silhouette stamps don't need to be just stamped in black. The red looks terrific!

  2. I love how you used red to stamp the leaves. It gives a modern look and a great change from green!

  9. I like the 3-D effect of your first card -- the shaker easel. Very clever. And I've been thinking about doing one of those triple easel cards. You may have spurred me on with your second card.

    1. the shaker easel was a spur of the moment happening when I cut out the image. yes, go for it...triple easels are a wow factor card and with all the nestabilities out there it's a snap.
