Dotty For You Paper Packet using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hi all you fantastic bloggers out there.  I am so happy to have time to create something today.  I decided I haven't used my "Dotty For You paper packet" enough and wanted to create something else for you.  This beautiful paper will be available to order April 17 - May 31 for just $5 when you purchase $35 or more in products from our Spring/Summer Idea Book.  Click here to order.  For just $50 in products; you can add the April stamp of the month for just $5.  What fantastic deals!!  My stamp of the month should be on its way now.  I can't wait to use it!

I decided to use a sketch from Sweet stop sketches to create this card.  I love their sketches. They are so much fun.  Here is my card.  I love the "Everyday Life Stamp set" which is included in the Stella On The go Workshop.  This chair and the sentiment are just too cute. 




This is the sketch I chose to use for this card.  There are many sketches at their blog.  There were other options for this challenge if you want to participate.  See their link below.



I used the new CTMH "Dotty For You paper packet: for this card.  I also used Lagoon and Colonial White cardstock.  I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the square and the oval for my stamped chair and sentiment.  The chair and sentiment are from "Everyday Life Stamps" which is part of "Stella Workshop On The Go"; which you will find on page 19 of the Spring/Summer Idea Book.  This is a closer view of the stamp, sentiment and the patterns in the paper.  There is a pattern in the paper with the butterflies.  I love this paper packet.  I have already ordered two of them as I know I will want to use it for a long time.  See how nicely the colors and patterns coordinate with each other. 

Supplies I used for this card:

Patterned Paper - CTMH Dotty For You Paper Pack
Cardstock - CTMH Lagoon cardstock (background) and Colonial White cardstock for square/oval
Chair stamp and sentiment - "Everyday Life Stamps" in the Stella Workshop on the Go
Ink - CTMH Lagoon Exclusive ink
Square & Oval - CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, Oval 2 - 1 1/4 in; Square 1 - 3 in.
