Hello lovely crafty friends,

A very warm good morning to you all.

To continue that chain we are back with our new Guest DT's. Take your Hit Chocolate Drink and Sit Back as here we introducing New faces of Teaching and Learning Program of Feb'17:

Our first Guest DT is Neha Lunia

Hello Crafters, Let me Introduce myself,

My name is Neha Lunia. I am from Nepal. I did my graduation from here itself. For Post graduation I went to Kolkata to continue my studies but due to some personal reasons I had to leave it in between. My craft journey started in 2014 . Back when I started Craftmaniaa(my facebook page), I didn't even knew such profession exists & it's such a large field in itself. It was my aunt who inspired me to turn my time pass hobby to profession so that I can try more new stuffs, little did I knew then it would change my life in this way. I am not sure if Juhi Khanna even knows that she had been my idol. Not only her work inspired me...even she was too kind enough to explain me few bits about crafting and how can I improve my work. I will always be thankful to her.

Currently I teach crafting to kids once a week in a school. I do love making mini albums, cards, treat boxes. I am new to this field & trying hands on new stuffs. The more I get to know it. Crafting amazes me more. I believe "once a crafter, is always a crafter".

Our Fourth Guest DT is Richa Maurya

Hello, I am Richa Maurya hailing from Patna, Bihar. By profession I am a doctor. Have just completed my M.B.B.S. and am waiting for PG counselling. I wasn't much of a crafter before. But last year I came across quilling while making a present for my mom on Mother's Day. And I got really intrigued that just a piece of paper could be turned into something so beautiful and mersmerising. And that's when my journey began. Soon created a blog to showcase my creations.

From quilling moved on to card making and mixed media. And have not looked back since. I love giving handmade cards to my friends and family. The happiness of seeing their reaction is amazing. I am really happy and super-excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari.

Altered Old Clock by GDT Pavitra

Hello my dear friends,

I am back with another inspirational post for you guys and really happy being back with you at this platform.

Today project is about an altered old clock, which was not functional and now reformed as home decor piece.

Have a look!!!

I love to work with different mediums and play with textures and that’s what reflects in my project.

For this project i started with an old alarm clock and covered the entire piece with white sand paste, once dried thoroughly I placed all my embellishments with heavy body gel and left it to dry. Next I further build up the textures with gauge and art stones. Did you notice the heart piece in the center it’s a part of my little one’s broken toy. It was lying in my stash from some time and finally got its place.

Gave few coasts of white gesso to entire piece and sprayed with shades of green, blue and purple from lindy’s spray gang. For highlighting the texture I dry brushed with white gesso.

Painted the back of the bulb embellishment with prima alchemy paint and placed it with heavy body gel.

Hope you enjoyed going through my creation.Below you can find out the list of all supplies

Materials used-
Old clock
Finnabair texture paste- White sand paste
Metal Embellishments
Finnabair heavy white gesso
Prima art stone
Lindy’s spray – drop dead diva
Finnabair art alchemy paint – pink blush
Finnabair heavy body gel

Over to you Afreen,

Hello Friends,
This is Afreen here, am back with the another pictorial on how to make diamond fold card.. here is the picture of card which we are gonna to make.

Lets begin with the tutorial
Step 1: Take a piece of pink cardstock 250gsm at 12x6 inches.

Step 2: Score it at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches.

Step 3: Mark a little dot at 6 inches top and bottom using pencil.. (am using pen just to have a clear look of dot) use pencil so that you can erase them after creasing.

Step 4: Now mark 3inches from the top in 2nd scored line and 3rd score line.

Now mark cross lines using pencil by jointing the points ( 1st score line top to middle 3 inches dot and end the marking at 6 inches dot at the bottom and 1st score line bottom to middle 3 inches dot and end the marking at 6 inches dot at the top) do the same for the other side also as shown in the above picture.

Step 5: Now after marking the lines use your ruler according to the line and fold it then crease it using your bone folder (ref pic below).

(creased lines will look like this)

Step 6: Fold exactly as shown in the pic.

Fold like this… Let the arrow shape creased part will go inside the card, so that u can get the diamond portion alone as 3d look.

Do the same for the other side also 

Step 7: You will get the fancy folds like this 

Step 8: Now decorate them using pattern sheets, I took print from free printable website.. do the same creasing which we did in cardstock, so that it will be easy for you to cut every single piece without any difficulty.

Adhere them to the cardstock and distress all the edges..in this I didn’t sticked the diamond shaped pattern sheet.

Step 9: I used some golden cardstock for the side triangles and center diamond portion and decorated it with doilies at center and border punch out at the left and right edges.

I've just distressed the golden cardstock using my golden gel pen, just applied at the edges and rubbed off using fingers to get the distressed effect.

Added some cut outs and tags
Step 10: Finally I added stamped images in the center and created flowers using heartfelt creations stamp and added glitters. Here are the finished project pictures.
