Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge!


It is Papertrey Blog Hop time again!  A favorite time of the month for me!

This month's challenge was to:
 "show off skills that you might have learned from a fellow stamper".


I interpreted this challenge as CASE'ing a fellow stamper that showcased a
particular technique.  Well for me.......ever since I'd seen Maile Belles card using the
letter press technique where she also combined it with dry emboss masking, I wanted to try it!!

Here is my version!


If you follow Maile's directions.....you will come out with a beautiful impressed frame!
Thank you Maile for the wonderful inspiration!




Have a great day blog hopping!  Thanks for stopping by!

So clean and fresh. This is the first time I've been able to participate with the PTI fun being from Wales so the time difference never allowed. I'm also new to PTI products and have only just had my first order so am having loads of fun seeing what others create with the items.
