Cupcake, Sweet Cupcake

One of my favorite shapes on the new Art Philosophy Cricut® Collection cartridge is the cupcake.  There is even a coordinating cupcake stamp with the Celebration stamp set that is included with the collection.  One of my display boards for Extravaganza featured artwork using the <cupcake> button for cutting, and these are some of the cards.  Of course, every cupcake is topped with a "cherry on top" shiny Sparkle.

This cupcake card was cut from Smoothie cardstock using the Cricut-Art Philosophy cartridge.  A slightly smaller cupcake was cut using Cocoa cardstock and layered inside the front of the card to create a 'frame' for the cupcake window.  Inside of the card has the cupcake stamped image.  The card is then completed with a Sparkle on top, some ribbon, and an embossed 'Happy Birthday' sentiment. 

No stamping on this card, everything is cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge using the new Elemental paper packet.   

With Elemental papers, used the 'Tag' feature of the cartridge along with the 'Font' (for the flowers) and 'Font Layer' (for the border) to create these two birthday tags.  Again, the coordinating cupcake stamp that is included in the Art Philosophy Collection was also used. 

For this cupcake card, papers from the Roxie paper packet were used on the inside of the card to cover the 'window' and decorate the cupcake.

    Thanks for posting so many examples. I love to see how others are using the products to help inspire me. I am overwhelmed with how much is on the cricut cartridge.
    I am excited to get started on my christmas cards...I usually start making them in July. But first, I think I need to play with some cupcakes :)
    Well done!
