Week 2 - DoubleClick Skittles Monster/Robot Challenge

Welcome to Week 2 of the DoubleClick Skittles Challenge!

Challenge #30 - Use a Monster or Robot

Sept. 2 - Sept. 15

For this Skittles challenge, I wanted to pair R2D2, the fabulous and charming robot from Star Wars, with a sentiment from a stamp kit that I needed to break in.  I've used my Cricut Explore, once again, and uploaded a jpeg image of R2D2 into the online Design Space for the Explore.  I LOVE this feature!  My printer, prints the image with L-shaped markers, then I load my printed image onto a mat and the Explore scans the markers and perfectly cuts the outline of my image.  It's fabulous!

I had this really terrific starry night sky paper that was the perfect backdrop, along with some buttons that were also "out of this world".  I stamped my sentiment on vellum and added some twine, then scattered my Yellow Sunshine and Sailboat Blue Skittles across the sky and placed some Slate Skittles below my sentiment.

I love how this fun card turned out and my Skittles look fabulous, don't you think?  They are so much fun to play with and add such character and playfulness to your craft projects.  Grab some today!

Skittles come in a multitude of fabulous colors and are handmade in batches in Carri's "lab".  There are 25 of these fun, bubble embellishments per bag and you can purchase most 3 pack sets for under $4.00 or individually.  Plus shipping is FREE in the USA and PAYPAL is accepted.

You can purchase Skittles here:

The newest release, "Believe in Magic" is still available.  Perfect for all your Disney themed projects (Mickey, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.)
