Quad Easel Card by DT Priyanka

Hello Everyone


Today I am at the Blog again with an inspiration post this time.

This time I really wanted to try my hands at something new & different and something which I had never created before, thus I picked "QUAD-EASEL CARD" for my inspiration. I remember, when I saw this style of card for the very first time sometime back I got all itchy to try it but just couldn't work on it & with this inspiration post I knew I had to had to try my hands at this quad easel style.




This style gives you a lot of flexibility to experiment with themes, combinations etc. I chose to go ahead with the love theme...!

For the base, I began with taking a black cardstock in size 11"*11"{ref: Picture(a)} & than cut out 4 strips in size 5"*10" and then folded them into half (scored at 5")  {ref: Picture (b)} I further scored one side of the folded cards diagonally {ref: Picture(c)}. Then I cut out 4 squares in the size 5"*5" {ref: Picture(d)}. I then took patterned papers from Papericious & cut them accordingly to attach to the base of my easel card. For the base I cut the patterned paper into 10.5"*10.5" & the remaining 4 patterned papers in 4.8"*4.8".

I adhered the patterned papers onto the black cardstocks' of the respective sizes & then adhered the 4 cards onto the base {ref: Picture(e)} Our base is now ready to be embellished.

I embellished it flap by flap in a way that each flap coorinates with the other. (tip: it is important to think through how you are going to embellish the flaps because devaiting from the theme can kill the entire look of the card, thus it is very important that all flaps should compliment each other & be in sync)


I embellished my flaps using Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Square die, resins, die cuts, flowers, heat embossed sentiment from Fiskars stamp set, pearls, rhinestones. I didn't want to go overboard with my embellishments thus I kept them simple & light.


Using a double sided foam tape I adhered the small sentiments on the inside of the cards to make an easel panel (with support of these our cards will stand to make an easel structure)

Our Quad Easel Card is ready!

Pop-Up Box Card Tutorial by DT Priyanka


Hello Everyone,

Today I am over again at the Rainbow Craftykari Blog and this time I am here with a step by step tutorial on how to make a Pop-Up Box.
I have been doing a lot of pop-up boxes in the last few months and I have always loved working on these..! Pop Up boxes are a flat card that opens up to a box with popping out elements.

To give you a glimpse of the project:



Let's begin: 

Step1 for the base: I picked up a 10.5*6" cardstock & scored it at 2.5",5",7.5",10". Then I rotated the cardstock & scored at 2.5" which makes my upper part of the card (2.5") and bottom half (3.5").The last flap left in the end will be glued to the inner side to make the box. Following which I cut the scored lines half way through till 2.5" from the top to make the flaps.





Step2: I then cut two strips measuring 3.5*1" and scored them at 0.5" and 3". These go inside the pop-up box to hold the embellishments in the center.





Step3: Now I picked out the patterned papers from my stash and cut them in the sizes same as each section on inside & outside and adhere them to the box.



Step 4:
Then I took Clearly Besotted stamp & stamped the gorgeous little animals & sentiments and colored them using aqua water color pencils & fussy cut them.






Step5:
Now using the acetate sheets (easily available in the local stationary shops) I cut these into thin strips.

These are used to add the elements outside of the box which gives an impression as if the elements are hanging in the air because of the transparency of these acetate sheets.




Step6:
And the final step I added all the fussy cut elements onto the pop-up box and on the acetate sheets using glossy accents.

 


And TADA!!!! the box is ready... :D :D



Isn't it looking very cute???
Enjoy a few more close up pictures.

 






Materials Used: 1. Black Card stock 2. Clearly Besotted Stamp set 3. Versa ink onyx3. Patterned Papers ( from the stash) 4. Tim Holtz Distress inks 
5. Aqua Watercolour pencils
6. Glossy Accent7. Fevicol 
8. Acetate Sheet

Hope you all liked the card & enjoyed the tutorial. Until next time. ;)

DIY Gifts for a friend by DT Ishani

Hello Everyone,

Today I am here on the blog with my first post in this new term. My post is an inspiration for our August challenge, which you can find here.

August is the month for celebrating friendship and so I planned to put some love and make something for my best friend.

To tell her how I cherish our sweet friendship, I decided to make a card for her and a pair of quilled earrings.



I chose to do some hand lettering for the quote on friendship, as the sentiment for the card. For the design, I chose to build a wreath, around the quote. A wreath is circular and symbolic of eternity and I wish our friendship also lasts forever." The quilling done here is not very traditional, I thought of experimenting with different coils and was happy with the texture it gave to the flowers. After arranging my quilled elements for the wreath, it was stuck on a black card base.







I made a pair of quilled quirky earrings for her. The shape here is also a circle, symbolising our everlasting friendship. I chose the violet, indigo, blue and minty green 3mm strips to make this pair.






Hope you were inspired and would join us in our ongoing challenge.

Supplies used:

(a) For the quilled card:-

  • Neenah Classic Crest White cardstock
  • Black cardstock
  • Pentel brush pen (black)
  • 3mm Quilling strips (assorted colours)

(b) For the earrings:-

  • 3mm Quilling strips (assorted colours)
  • Ear hook findings
  • Mod podge matte (as sealant)


All the supplies used are available at Rainbow Craftykari Store or you can pre-order the products by sending email at rainbowcraftykari@gmail.com


Happy Crafting

Quick Card Tutorial by GDT Anila & GDT Khushboo


Hie guys! I'm here today with a very special and a little different post - a Quick tutorial on Quick Cards. And specially for this, we have two GDTs coming together to share with you a detailed tutorial for quick, yet beautiful cards.

Often times than not, we're so busy with life, that we rarely get time to create those special looking cards for the ones we love. Hence, Rainbow Craftykari and Maninder, came up with this super idea of showcasing a tutorial that encompasses some techniques that you can use for making cards in just a few minutes.

There will be a couple of cards with different techniques by me, Khushboo Gandhi, and another very talented GDT, Anila DK. Hope you guys enjoy this post as much as we enjoyed creating it for you. Can't wait to see how you put these techniques to use with your own twist on your projects!"

The following is the introduction for my cards:

"Let's begin with our first segment on quick cards in this series. As some of you must be aware, I LOVE colours! I love vibrancy and magical stuff. And I try to bring some of that spunk in my projects too. Quick cards don't always have to mean CAS style or a minimalistic style. I've come up with a couple of techniques that don't take very long to implement, ans the end result is really distinct and lively. So let's get on with our super pretty tutorial.



Colour Burst Mixed Media Card Tutorial #1










You will need:

White/off-white cardstock
Crackle paste
Ranger's alcohol inks
Vellum
Versafine Black ink pad
Sentiment stamp
Rhinestones


Directions:

  1. Dimensions of the card: 5x4 inches
  2. Take a white or an off-white cardstock, folded into the above dimensions.
  3. Add crackle paste in the background, in whatever way you wish. It should look random and not in a set square or rectangle shape. That way, your card looks edgy and different.
  4. Take alcohol inks in the colours of your choice and start squeezing a drop here and there (in-between spraying with water/alcohol).
  5. Repeat step no. 4 till you are satisfied with the colour combinations and have covered almost the whole of your crackle base.
  6. Take a piece of vellum for the sentiment. Stamp it with your sentiment stamp, and stick the vellum on top of the colourful crackle base. You can use any colour cardstock if you don't want to work with vellum. I've used it because I did not want that beautiful, colourful background to be hidden by the cardstock.
  7. Embellish with rhinestones to add an elegant touch, and voila! your card is ready in just a few minutes

Make your own background and font (card #2)






You will need:

White/off-white cardstock
Colour sprays
Glitter
Butterfly stamp
Black ink pad

Quick Directions:

  1. Fold the cardstock in the same way as for the above card.
  2. Take a few color sprays and spray them on the cardstock. The spray should be concentrated on one point on the cardstock (so that you get the splotchy effect).
  3. Take your card and let it drip out at one end to get rid of the extra spray color on your card. In doing so, you are allowing the colors to mix and get dragged to another end of your card (hence creating a random pattern as seen above).
  4. Stamp a butterfly and add glitter on it. Curve it and stick it on the card.
  5. I was a little bored of the pre-set sentiment stamps and fonts, and so I took my glitter bottle and stylized the sentiments myself for the words 'fly high'.

Hope you liked what I created and I can't wait for you to give these techniques a try.

Hello, Dear Crafters. 
This is Anila Here, I am back again at the Rainbow Craftykari blog.

We come across various occasions for wishing our friends and family. One click on the smartphone and your wishes reach the person. 
In this age of Whatsapp and Facebook, we often forget the joy of sending greeting cards. The emotions you attach to a digital card is not felt as much as when you send out an actual card. This way the recipient feels and knows the love and efforts you have put in making the card and thus your wishes to them also become memorable. I think we all love receiving cards. 
Let us make few cards today and send them out to our family/friends.

Today in this post I am showing you three easy and quick cards, which you can make for your loved ones. The most important part here is that these cards are made with minimal supplies.  

Material list -

White cardstock

Black cardstock

Colourful cardstocks

Sentiment stamps

Foam adhesives

White Embossing powder (Optional)

Embossing folder (Optional)

Colorful sequins

Card 1


Directions:
  1. I took a plain white cardstock of size 2.5" x 5.75".
  2. Dry embossed this card panel through my bigshot using a cupcake embossing folder.
  3. On a textured card base of 4"x6", I stuck a glitter washi tape such that when the embossed panel is mounted over the card base a part of this washi tape is seen from under.
  4. On a white CS strip, I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment. Mounted this on the card base with a little larger black strip underneath. 
(Note: - The embossed panel can easily be replaced by a pattern paper if you do not own an embossing machine or folder)




Card 2

Directions:
  1. I took a white card panel of size 2.75" x 6". 
  2. I mounted few colourful heart die-cuts as balloons on the panel.
  3. With a black marker traced the strings for the heart balloons. 
  4. Adhered this panel on a white card base.
  5. Stamped the sentiment on a white strip and mounted it with foam adhesive.
(Note - The hearts can be easily hand-cut)




Card 3 

Directions:
  1. For this card, I cut colorful strips and arranged them on the 4"x6" card base. 
  2. I tried to maintain the color wheel concept. So first placed the primary colored strips and then overlapped them with the secondary colors. Stuck them in place. Trimmed off the extras. 
  3. Next, I took a white card panel of size 4" x 5.5". Die-cut a heart shape on this panel. 
  4. I mounted the negative panel with foam adhesive on the card base such that the heart cut-out overlooks the colorful strips. 
  5. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a black strip. Adhered it with foam adhesive with a part of it overlapping the heart. 
  6. Lastly, added few colored sequins to add some element to the card. 
(Note - The heart can be traced and cut with a carving knife.)



Wasn't it easy to make these cards? 
We all have these basic supplies lying in our house. And like I mentioned, the embossed panel can be replaced by pattern paper, the die-cuts can be replaced by hand cuts and the stamped sentiments too can be replaced by handwritten sentiments. 
Just imagine the joy of making such cards and sending them to your loved ones. 

Hope to see you start soon.
Thank you.
