Hello everyone.

Its been a while since i have blogged- a little since we have been on two trips, but mostly because my full time job has become super busy, so evenings leave little energy for creating. But it looks like we might be seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Yippeeee!

I have a video to share today, with copic markers. I am always SO VERY late to jump onto the trendy bandwagon, but never mind. :-) I have been having fun playing around, and love the final blended result. I am still a beginner, so not an expert by any stretch of the imagination- all tips gracefully welcome!

This card is bright, cute, and not overly girly – a perfect one for a boy i think. I didn’t have a polaroid die (although you can buy them) so i simply used the rectangle and square dies i already have to create a similar effect.

The dino stamps are from Woodware and are called Dino Friends, and i uses Milo’s ABCs stamps from Lawn Fawn to create the word Dinomite. For the rest of the greeting i used Double Sayings, Paula Pascual stamps by Personal Impressions.

Here’s the video – enjoy. And please don’t forget to give it a thumbs up if you like it. thaaaaanks!

Hey there y’all!

I shared a sneak peek of this card on instagram and was amazed by the number of likes that people gave it – thank you so much for the love! Sorry its taken a while for the video to be finished- but here it is!

Of course i am using Mama Elephant up and away stamp and die sets, as well as my Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies, as well as the spring showers die set. The background is stamped and inked – but you can see the whole process in the video.

Enjoy the video, and if you have a moment, and like what you have seen, please hit the thumbs up button!

Here are some more photos too:

have a great day!




Baby Bear & Balloons- New Baby Card

by Lesley Oman on 8 June, 2015

Hi there,

We have had an influx of babies recently in my circle of friends, via work, nursery and all sorts. I kinda like it, because i always find baby cards super fun to make!

I made a card for baby Hugo and then realised that i didn’t have the video camera running, so i made another girl version of the card on tape so i could share it with you guys. Good job i did, because not long afterwards my work colleague Jennifer had a beautiful baby girl! Congratulations on your new bundles of fun!

For todays card i used some Lawn Fawn and paper smooches dies, some echo park paper, and a mix and match of stamp images. I hope you enjoy the video.

Thanks for stopping by. I’m off to make some more baby cards for baby Charlie and Felicity. These tiny humans are everywhere!! :-)



Enjoy The Adventure: Bon Voyage Card (video)

by Lesley Oman on 25 May, 2015


I made this card a little while ago for our work colleague, John, who took the brave step of packing his bags and moving to Spain. It all happened so fast, but i know he will do GREAT over there!

Of course, i had to send him off in style with his own bespoke HHC card! I used this super cute fox /wolf critter from the mama elephant up and away stamp set, coloured with some spectrum noir pencils. I also used the paper airplane image from lawn fawn- isn’t it cute how it looks like he is throwing it!!

For the background i wanted to invoke the idyllic hues of a spanish pool, so created a watercolour effect using distress inks.

Enjoy the video, and see you again soon,
