Hand lettering is very on trend right now, and I LOVE IT! I have been watching some videos from Kristina Werner (@starofmay on instagram) who has an amazing talent when it comes to wielding a brush – her hand lettering and calligraphy is so amazingly beautiful!

I have dabbled around with a brush and some watercolours, but i guess it takes lots of practise. Maybe i will keep trying. I seem to do a little better with a brush marker- so i decided to play around and add some hand lettering to this baby card that i was making.

I wanted to keep the baby card to neutral, muted tones so used grey ink for the most of the design. The bunny is from the Mama Elephant Up and Away stamp set, and the text stamps are from Hero Arts and Personal Impressions. I coloured the bunny using copic markers and added a touch of sparkle with some clear wink of steel brush pen.

I had some real problems trying to find a pink ink in my stash that was ‘jussstt right’, but had to make do with a light pink that is really hard to see on the video. sorry about that. i have just placed an order for some Ranger Dye Pink gum ball ink – hopefully that will fill the pink void in my collection :-)

Here is the video – check it out! Have a great day!


Spotlight Pressure Embossing – Monster Hugs {video}

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! :-)
