PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

Good  morning, this month's PTI Blog Challenge is to show a technique or inspiration.  Fabulous idea!  I choose to CASE a card from Maile Belle. I love her clean style.  She has three favorite techniques that I love:
  • On so many of her cards, she cuts out a shape from within a shape.   I love how she did this on this and this card. 
  • She uses buttons perfectly.  I love how she places them under popped up images on her cards.  Here a couple of my favorites....second one on this post and the first card on this post.
  • My third favorite about her style is how she uses white space so effectively.
So here's my take on her style...it doesn't do her justice, but makes me happy.  Love her blog and so many others for inspiration! 
Ingredients:  Paper:  PTI Kraft, Paper Company, White; SU Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake Ink; PTI Buttons and Twine; SU Baja Breeze Ribbon; PTI Daily Designs and Mega Mixed Messages Stamps
