Art Philosophy, Roxie and cupcakes

So this morning I decided to play with the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and I had found some old cardstock that is not good for scrapping or making cards so I decided to make some card size templates for myself. I cut some different card shapes at 4 3/4 and 5 1/4 to see exactly how big or small they are. I also cut out the 2 envelopes tht are on the cartridge, I did these at fit to page so that I would get the biggest size. I wrote on each template the size of card and which envelope they would fit into ( envelope 1, envelope 2, or a standard 4 3/8 x 5 3/4), also noted the page # the card could be found on in the Art Philosophy handbook. These first 2 pictue are of my templates, and since I had the Art Philosophy cart out well I had to make some cards.

These first 2 have no sentiment on them because I am not sure yet if want to use for thinking of you or whatever. The cards were cut at 4 3/4 base and layers were cut at 4 1/2, 4, 2 1/2, 2 1/4, 2, 1 3/4, the little dragonflies were cut at 1 3/4. I used stickles on the dagonflies bodies just for a little bling. The envelopes were cut at 5 1/4 which is the fit to page size. hope you like them.

All product is CTMH unless noted:

Z1151 3-D foam tape

Black grosgrain ribbon

These next 2 are also using the AP cart, but with 2 different looks, on the first card, the one on the left, I used the stamp set that comes with the AP cart, the cupcakes were cut at 2 1/2 which is the recommended size listed on the stamp sheet, the one on the right the cupcake is cut at 3 1/2, I used brads to make sprinkles in the icing. The happy birthday is from the AP stamp set. I had no chocolate sparkles so I used a Copic marker to color some clear ones.

Just popped over from FB. I am loving this cartridge and so might have to cave!!!! I am in the process of lining up "crafty peeps" to join me on my 60th BD Blog Hop in November. I have looked yet to see if your email is listed, but is this something you would like to do?
