Card Making with Skittles!



Hi everyone!!  I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer for Carri at Double Click Connections :)   Carri is one of the most creative and inspiring designers, always making something whimsical and sweet to make you smile.  I've known Carri in the blogging world for years now and I can tell you ~ she is very talented as well as one of the sweetest, nicest ladies ever!   I'm delighted to showcase the magnificent Skittles that she creates.  You can find them here in her store - take a peek!

Not only are the colors vibrant and rich, but they are so versatile!  You can use these on a variety of projects, including cards and scrap-booking pages.  A little dab of glue and you are good to go!  Carri was so generous and send me these 5 gorgeous colors to work with ~ Latte, Sailboat Blue, Sunset Orange, Wild Plum and Purple Twilight ~ divine!  For my first card, I used every color!  I paired it with this cutie TGF image and added the Skittles to the coordinating colors off to the side.  With the brightness of the MME paper, it gave great allowance to use the rainbow of colors and IRL, the colorful Skittles just make this card burst!  And for Megan, I colored her with prismacolor markers and paper pieced her outfit and hairbow with matching paper to the card.


 (post edited - further deets to follow!) :)

These Skittles were so much fun to work with and Carri is so generous - you will absolutely love to craft with them! There are plenty left to continue this crafting trend :)  Please stop on by her store and take a look at the variety of colors available!  

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
