CCC #118

IMG_6786


Happy Tuesday and time for this week's new CASology Cue Card.
This week our cue is:





What I am seeing everywhere are homes all dressed up for trick or treater's. So I broke out my new Simon Says Village dies that I purchased originally to make cute white houses and turned my house to a spooky haunted house. The die easily cuts all those tiny windows so I die cut one is yellow and one in black. Then I carefully slid the yellow house off my Big Shot so that the windows did not come out.  The dies do not cut the bottom of the images giving you options for landscapes.  I chose to cut them off for my design. I put a piece of scotch tape on the back of the yellow house to hold the windows in place. Then after poking out the windows of the black house I glued the two together giving the glow. I die cut my hill and then taped it down to the grey background before die cutting the square, Then I stamped the bats and sentiment before adhering the die cuts with foam tape.

Tracey, first I thought that you had used the inlaid die technique for the windows, but after reading through,I can see the yellow panel, great idea, and a very nice card.
