Designer Phone Case Inspirations

Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink July countdown. 

Today's group post is focused on the new Phone Case & Phone Case Details die collections.  That Erin! She is so smart for creating such a trendy solution to protecting those valuable smart phones.  I just can't get over how simple and cool these cases are!  This collection is perfect for creating custom phone cases that will make fabulous gifts or even something for your own personal use.

Here's what I've come up with...
This cute little combo features a girly color combo of limeade ice and raspberry fizz/autumn rose.
At the start of my phone case I knew I wanted my pink stitching to really stand out.  So I chose to work with white felt strips and stitched them into place on top of the limeade ice for a nice complimentary combo.  Then finished this case off with a raspberry fizz button.
I own an Iphone 4s. Since it's a bit shorter in size than the current Iphone I found that the width of the felt rolls were exactly the size I needed to work with.  In the photo above you can see exactly how I die cut the phone case panels from a felt roll.
Next, I put one of the phone case details die to use on paper.  Here's a unique faux-stitched pattern using the same die I used on my felt phone case.
After die cutting I used a Copic marker to connect the dots and create the look of stitched embroidery floss.  So much quicker this way!

Well, that's all I've got for you today. Just remember... everything you've seen peek of today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning July 15th

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...

  1. Wonderful, Mailes - how clever adapting the size :)
    Love how you used the dies to decorate the card, too - I really thought the stitching was real until I saw the close up! I used the booties with card to to make decorations for a Baby Shower - worked well, too!

  2. Love how you used the dies on a card. Love all your ideas

  3. Love that faux stitching trick, I'll have to remember that one!

  4. Look at you....using a marker on the card to 'connect the dots'. A woman after my own heart. I like the diagonal look to your coordinating project.

  5. the colors and the faux stitching on the card. Not much of a sewer but I could find tons of uses for those additions.

  6. So fun!! I LOVE your faux stitching on the card!!
