Hola friends!

I am just back from the Emerald Isle! So that means that I have a suitcase full of laundry, a belly full of tea and Irish food, and a very thick Irish accent! :-) At least for a while! I recorded this video before i left for hols but i hope you guys can all understand my Irish-isms in the next few videos that i plan to finish off today! :-)

Today i have a card that has the big reveal on the inside, if you know what i mean!
There was a cute peek-a-boo stamp set in a recent issue of Simply Cards and Papercrafts Magazine, and i simply had to make a card using the cute kitty. I mixed it up with the Sending and Wishing stamp set from simonsaysstamp – it worked a treat! i just love the way the kitty face is so cute and gives a lovely surprise when you turn the front panel to open the card!

And of course i got a little inky with my distress inks ( as always ;-) ! ) mixed with some masking to get some lovely crisp lines. Then i added a little moo cow from the Mama Elephant Lunar animals stamp set too!

Here’s the video so you can see the full process! Enjoy! and have a lovely day!


I LAVA YOU! – a light up LED card

by Lesley Oman on 7 April, 2016

Hey there everyone,

I was looking through my blog and suddenly realised that i had put a video on you tube but must have forgotten to put up the blog post! whoopsie!

It is a card made using the chibitronics paper circuits and LEDs. It is so much fun to add these lights to cards, and they are small, discrete and the good news is that i think i am getting better at using them.

The little volcano was inspired by the short film at the start of the Inside Out DVD….well, you guys know that i am a sucker for a pun! :-)

You may have seen my LED light up foxy card from a few months back (heres a link to the post) but this card focuses on a much simpler design.

Check it out!

Hello everyone!

it’s been a busy few weeks in the Oman household – between Birthdays, Party Prepping, two acting gigs for PrincessPi, and a sick kid! I am very thankful for the Easter holidays being here at last!

Today i am sharing a card i made last week, inspired by a teeny weenie piece of rainbow that i had left over from my previous card ‘Unicorn on a cloud‘. It was too pretty to land in the bin, and i knew i would find a way to incorporate it into a card design.

well, this is the end result. An idea sparked by St Patrick’s day, then a quick sketch and rifle through my die stash…and voila!

Enjoy the video!
