Four Cute Cards with Mendi

We are so happy to have Mendi Yoshikawa as our guest blogger today! She will be sharing four amazing cards with you. Take it away, Mendi!

Hello there! My name is Mendi and I’m thrilled to be a guest on the blog today. I’m super excited to share a few of my recent creations using some of the newest Lawn Fawn stamps!

My first card features the adorable “Fintastic Friends” set with the irresistible fish bowl. To start I cut a panel 4.25″ x 4″ from white cardstock and then used a circle die to cut out the semi-circle from the top. I then set to work sponging on Distress inks. When I was done, I took that same color of Distress ink and used the various bubble stamps in the set to stamp on a random background pattern. 
When I was done, I felt like the top of my card was a bit empty so I sponged on some more Distress inks in the corners to give my little fish bowl a bit of a frame. To tie in the sentiment strip, I inked it up using those same colors of ink before stamping “best fishes”. The rest of my images were colored using Copic markers.

For my next card, I wanted to create the look of an aquarium so I die-cut my cardstock and vellum using the negative space created from the Stitched Scalloped Borders. To give my card a bit of dimension, I stamped the reef images as a border on the cardstock layer so that it could peek through the vellum. I wanted to use the Stitched Labels for my sentiment, but they wouldn’t quite fit so I decided to put part of the phrase on the label and spell out the remainder using Finley’s ABCs dies.

Up next is a card featuring the darling “Let’s BBQ” set. All the images are just so cute that I wanted to try to fit as many of them as possible on my card. I decided a grid design was the perfect way to achieve that.  I think the sentiment is perfect for a summer birthday or to hold onto until next Father’s Day.

My last card features more of the same adorable images. I decided to reserve the cute little faces for the mustard and ketchup bottles to reinforce my sentiment. To stamp them it on 2 separate lines and in different colors I ended up cutting the stamp apart. There are ways to get around this, but doing it this way just makes it so nice and easy. 

I hope I’ve inspired you to pull out your stamps and have fun coloring. I took a bunch of these stamped image me on a summer road so that I could color and cut them out while on the go. It was so nice to have them ready to go when I got home!

Thank you so much for sharing your adorable cards with us today, Mendi!
