Card Making

Spotlight Pressure Embossing – Monster Hugs {video}

by Lesley Oman on 4 October, 2015

Ohhh, today’s card was just SO MUCH FUN! I loved bringing some lumpy, bumpy texture to the card that really brought these cute little monsters to life.

I have been playing a lot with these lawn fawn monster mash stamps lately, i think they are perfect for boys and girls, and for all ages! I like finding ways to bring them to life!

Here is the video…enjoy, and please, please, please gimme a thumbs up or leave a comment :-)


Hippo Birdie Shaker Card {video}

by Lesley Oman on 27 September, 2015

I have said it before and i will say it again… i LOURVE Lawn Fawn Critters! i went on a spending spree a little while ago and treated myself to a few of the Lawn Fawn anniversary stamps. This Hippo Birdie stamp set was to celebrate Lawn Fawn’s second birthday, and i think it is adorable.

Today’s project features this stamp set along with some paperchase, mama elephant and hero arts stamps, and of course my lawn fawn stitched rectangle dies. I have used copic markers to colour the images – i am still learning but i think copics give a beautiful finish to the stamped image. I hope you like the final card – it is a cute shaker card – they are always fun to do!

Here’s the video – check it out! Please give me a thumbs up if you like it.


I have another video for you, my crafty friends! YEAY!

I picked up a clear stamp set from Paperchase when i was on holiday, and it had a really cool diamond stamp in the set – i knew straight away that it would be perfect for engagement cards.

In today’s video, i use two separate stamp sets to create a diamond ring heat embossed image. Then I added a wash of colour using my kuretake gansai tambi watercolour set. I haven’t got to play with them much yet, but i am loving how rich the colours are! WOOHOO!

Of course, i couldn’t get through a card without adding some Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies! :-)


Sending Warm Fuzzies

by Lesley Oman on 9 September, 2015

One day Piper was adamant that she was going to get artsy in the craft room, so whilst keeping an eagle eye on little miss pull-everything-off-the-shelves, i started making a card. I didn’t have the video rolling i’m afraid, so no video today- just some photos to share.

I have been playing more with copic markers. I am loving it, but i can tell that i need to be in a really focused mood in order to get beautiful results. With this little bunny, i was just experimenting, and had all the time in the world. AND, i LOVE how he turned out!

I kept the snout white, and i was playing with my cool grey tones, and i made this little guy a little different by using a Faber Castell artist pitt pen to add a mouth. Nothing too extravagant, but i love the way it turned out. Uber cute! Awwwww!

I pulled out one of my older, but still a favourite, Hero Arts Designer block stamps- the clouds! YAY! I used SSS mint ink on some mint coloured cardstock, and added a white panel die cut using a Mama Elephant landscape border die.

For the text, i pulled out some Hampton Arts Warm Fuzzies stamps, and i also used the SSS ‘Sending’ die, cut out from a piece of card stock which i have embossed using Ranger Liquid platinum embossing powder.

There you have it.

Thanks for stopping by, and i hope to have another video for you soon.
