Hello! On Saturday, I received a few goodies from Erin Lee Creative that I had ordered, and they immediately inspired me. I especially love the Circle Waves die, and I know it’s something I am going to use often. It’s a very “chill” die, and it inspired me to make a “chill” card.

I looked through some of my digital images I had printed recently and found “Namaste” from Stamp Anniething. She was perfect for the kind of vibe I wanted for this card. I colored her with some muted tones of Copic markers and fussy cut her.
I always color before I choose my papers, so after I finished my image, I went through my stash, and fund the perfect colors to use with the Circle Waves die. I die cut the circle once for each color (which is great, because now I have plenty of leftover pieces for other cards) and chose the order I wanted the colors to be. I also cut out a separate circle with white cardstock to mount all the pieces to, so that I could easily move the entire circle around while I worked on my placement for the card.
For my background, I actually used a Gel Press monoprint….part of the same one I used on a card yesterday! There’s no blog post for that card, but I do have a YouTube video, if you’d like to check it out. Click HERE to see it. The background has a completely different feel on this card versus the other one.
I also added a sentiment from Gina K Designs’ “Something Good” stamp set. To finish the card off, I added a bunch of Crystal Clear Bubbles from Doodles Paper Playground to the card, which I adhered with On Point Glue. Everything was put on to an ivory card base.
I really love this card. It came out exactly how I hoped…very relaxed and serene. I adore this color combo too. As much as I love to work in bright, bold colors, these muted tones really speak to me too. That’s it for me today. I’ll have another new project soon. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
