CASology #180

It is so frustrating when you know what you want to use for a challenge and you can't find it.  I have my stamps and dies fairly well organized and labeled but once in a while there's that odd one out that gets put somewhere or with something else and you can't remember where.  After a week of searching, I finally found what I wanted for the challenge at CASology - Open.
See that little window tied in the middle of the card?  Those are cut using the illusive dies from Essentials by Ellen.  I bet you can guess what's hiding behind the windows can't you?
That's right.  It's those darling monsters from YNS, colored with Distress Inks.  I hope this is CAS enough.  I got some purple paint on my card front and did a little splatter to cover it up.  I was wishing for a better way to keep the window closed but twine was the best I could think of.

Thanks for dropping by.

  1. So glad you found that die, Bobby, because this is awesome! I love those little monsters and the purple paint was a winning happy accident. I think the twine is perfect for closing the window - it's like the ribbon on a present. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  9. Oh, so very fun, and I love the surprise when you open the window. I am currently looking for my newest square tag die from PTI, so I know what you mean about supplies disappearing. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology.
