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! :-)


hello crafty friends!
i have another card making video tutorial to share today. This was a ‘congratulations on your graduation’ card for my mate Alexia, but for a play on words the greeting says ConGRADs, and used spotlight stamping to make the G-R-A-D really stand out!

The little monster is from the adorable Lawn Fawn Monster Mash stamp set, and i wanted to add some accessories to make the card theme specific – so i simply sketched these, outlined them with a Faber Castell Artist Pitt pen, and coloured them with copics.

Here’s the video so you can see the whole process.

Thanks for stopping by!


I have a real problem with Lawn Fawn stamps! When i see their cuteness, i simply want to throw my bank card at all the stamps and indulge in THEM ALLLLLL! There are plenty that i have been drooling over for a long time, and at the start of the month i placed a few orders – after all, it is my birthday month! :-)

I picked up some of the anniversary sets, and Year 2 features a super cute tortoise and a belated birthday sentiment. This is perfect for me. I make cards, but i am one hundred percent really crappy at remembering to post them. EEeeep!

I needed to make a card for my marvellous and gorgeous mate Alexia, but as it was several months ago, this greeting would be perfect.

Here’s the video walking you through how i made the card. Enjoy!
