CASE Study #179

I absolutely love the soft, flowy look of Danielle Flanders card that is the muse for this week's CASE Study.

Another designer who does similar work is Debby Hughes over at Lime Doodle.  I love her work.  I tried, girls, I tried.

The photo is a little dark. :(  I used a "happy" from PTI, layering it 4 times.  The vellum is colored with Tattered Rose Distress Ink which matched the paper from Pink Paislee perfectly.  I broke out my sewing machine to stitch them on.

I left the ends of the thread to dangle.  The stars are embossed with sparkle ep and popped up.  I'm definitely trying this style again.  And now that I have the tension on my sewing machine right, I may "sew" a couple of other cards before I need to actually sew something like curtains or a quilt.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be happy!


  1. Right, it took me awhile to get the tension right for paper. So frustrating. Love your subtle stars and stripes. I'm so used to seeing them bold and this is a nice change.

  2. Congrats on making Top 3!! Love the stitched vellum banner!

  3. WOW! WTG with the win, Bobby! This is like a dream win!! Woot! Hugs, Darnell

  4. I love this, Bobby!! The stitching is fabulous and the vellum looks terrific! I'm not sure what you mean by "I tried". It looks to me like you tried and succeeded!!

  5. Whoop whoop! Big congrats on your win at CASE Study, Bobby! This is an absolute stunner! I love it all - the sparkly stars, the vellum, the stitching - fabulous!

  6. I think you did more than "try" to capture their style, Bobby, I think you ROCKED it!! Hugs, Darnell

    Oh, wow, I was just sliding my mouse down to click publish when I saw Jen's comment. See? You DID rock it! OMG, I'm so proud of you being with the BIG GUNS on that challenge!! I only dream of being recognized over there! Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!
