Stand Up Die Cut Heart Cards

by Lesley Oman on 28 February, 2015

hi everyone,

I finally bought myself a set of heart dies – i have been wanting some for ages!
Today’s card is inspired by the awesome Jennifer Maguire who made these cute heart cards on her blog. I have made shaped cards like this before, but had never had heart dies. I wanted to make some similar inspiration cards, but make the cards stand upright.

Enjoy the video, and don’t forget that we still have a giveaway running at the moment – leave a comment on this blog post, or its YouTube video.

Keep on crafting my friends!

Peekaboo Valentine’s Critters

by Lesley Oman on 14 February, 2015

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!

or as I like to call it – Kinder Egg Day! We have a bit of a tradition in our household on 14th February, you can read more about that in this post.

I have two cute critter cards to share today. I wanted to use my Spectrum Noir colouring pencils so i reached for some animal stamps – but to create a card that was a little different i wanted the critters to peek out of a window – thats why i call these peekaboo cards.

I used a square punch to create the rectangle aperture, but also used some lawn fawn and paper smooches dies to created the stitched rectangle, speech bubble and HAPPY die cut.

I wanted to use both the negative and positive of the HAPPY die cut, so i made two cards. Here’s the other one.

I even used the punch out grey square from the first card to create a background for the elephant.

Using the negative of the die cut word HAPPY was a bit tricker- because of those little bits inside the letters. To make life easy i stuck some acetate behind the die cut panel so i had something to adhere the inside bits to. Then i raised the panel up with foam squares.

I think they are super cute!

Thanks for stopping by guys.x

Gelatos On Vellum – And A GIVEAWAY!

by Lesley Oman on 4 February, 2015

WOOHOOOOOO! Look at that! All of a sudden i noticed something – 1500 YouTube subscribers! Oh course, my first thought was ‘Uh? Wah? HUH?’ then i progressed onto “woohoo”! :-)

Thank you guys so much! It means a lot to little old me – and so to celebrate…. it’s GIVEAWAY time!

I have a video to share today, which is all about me playing with gelatos on vellum to create a vellum aperture card, and i have hijacked the video for a minute to say thanks and talk about the giveaway. ( it was definitely a bit weird to have my face in front of the camera instead of just my hands!).

All you have to do is leave a comment on youtube or on this post, by 28 February 2015, and i will pick a winner. It’s open to everyone, regardless of your geographical location. What do you win? well, for starters the above stamp set by Paula Pascual called Big Sentiments – i have used it in my video here, and have used it MANY millions of times, because it is just so versatile. You will LOVE it! I imagine i will add some other bits and pieces from my stash too when the time comes.

So why not watch the video, leave a comment, and have a great day!
