Quickie Mini Monday -- CPS173 Style

Quickie Mini Mondays feature a 10 minute-or-less project -- something fast, fun and easy to reproduce and mass produce.

Hi everyone,

I love repetition on my cards. I think it makes for a very eye-catching layout. It definitely is true of this sketch that I've decided to use from Card Positioning System:

And here's the final product. I decided to flip the layout and to incorporate 5 brads and one stamped image, instead of 6 of the same element.

I just can't get enough of this new Greenhouse Gala DSP and the new Level 2 Hostess Stamp Set, Cute By The Inch -- both products will be available this coming Thursday, July 1st!!! The polka dot elements are actually brads that I've removed the prongs so they sit flat against the Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon. Since this is intended for a very quick card, I kept the layers very simple, opting to use the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Square Punches. The little cupcake is stamped in Basic Brown (retiring June 30th) and colored with a Blender Pen and Classic Real Red Ink. I also added a little cherry on top of the cupcake using a tiny punched circle in Real Red Cardstock. Very easy to do!

Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee
