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!

Blossom Mixed Media Tag by DT Kriti Mishra

Namaste Friends!!

I am Kriti...back again with an inspiration post for the current challenge
Here is the moodboard of the challenge ( Use minimum of any 3 elements from the board)



Here's what I made




I have selected three colours from the mood board....Yellow, green and brown.
Yellow colour signifies joy, happiness, intellect and energy.
Green colour signifies growth, harmony, freshness and fertility.
Brown colour signifies stability, structure and support.
So, that's why I have selected these colours from the vibrant mood board.

For this tag I have cut three tags from the cardstock.
Yellow- 3.75" x 6.25"
Brown- 3.50" x 6"
Green- 3.25" x 5.75"

Adhered them together one onto the other, after that I mixed the yellow acrylic paint with the texture paste and tapped with the palette knife after that I mixed green acrylic paint with the texture paste and again tapped with the palette knife to give some interesting textures to the surface.
 Put some embellishments like brick chipboard( coloured with brown acrylic paint), gauge, flowers and buds.


Now to add more interest to this, I have added few art stones mixed with gel medium, after drying applied some gesso and then coloured it with brown colour.

In the last I had splattered all the three colours with the help of brush and stamped the sentiment.

Here are few close- ups of the tag







Material used:-
  • Cardstock( Yellow, Green, Brown)
  • Acrylic paints ( Yellow, green and brown)
  • Handmade flowers

Home Layout by DT Anila

Hello Friends!

I am back today with an inspiration post for the current challenge
Here is the mood board of the challenge (Use minimum of any 3 elements from the board)

Image may contain: indoor

My project for the challenge


I wanted to include most of the colours from the mood board. I have tried to incorporate the woody texture with my base paper.

Here's a brief about my process:

I took an 8" x 8" pattern paper. This gives the look of a corrugated sheet but also resembles the woody structure from the mood board. I adhered this on a brown CS. Next, I adhered a Doily in the centre of this paper and mounted my sentiment with a lot of coloured paper matting under it.



Next came in the arrangement of the flowers, leaves and other elements. Once it was decided I adhered them in position. Then, I stuck a House sticker in one corner.
Lastly I added few sequins to add some element to the LO.

Here are some close-up snaps:









The materials used are

  • Pattern paper
  • Coloured CS
  • Flowers, Leaves etc.
  • Coloured sequins
  • Doily

All the above-mentioned materials are available with Rainbow Craftykari and/or can be pre-ordered for you.

Hope I could inspire you enough to participate in the ongoing challenge here.

Looking forward to your participation.

Keep Crafting!!

Art Tiles by DT Khushboo

Good morning crafters!

How are you today? This is Khushboo here, back with another round of Inspiration Post at Rainbow Craftykari.


Often times we strive to create our projects that look different from others. All in an attempt to maintain uniqueness. But with a pre-defined set of embellishments available in the market, our projects end up with similar elements. What fun it would be if we could create our own embellishments?


This post is all about creating your own 'Art Tiles' that are not limited by colours, styles or materials!


Let's take a look at some of the art tiles that I created, and then move on to a brief on how I made them!

 



























Brief Steps for creating 'Art Tiles':

Take your medium weight chipboard and cut it into a square (1x1 inch) and rectangle pieces (1.5x1 inch). Gesso some of the pieces with white and/or black gesso.Cut and stick some pattern paper of the same size as your chipboard pieces - these will be your base before you start stamping.


Collect a variety of intricate stamps and start stamping randomly on your pieces. It could be any motif - butterflies, scripts, flowers, etc. Don't forget to stamp sentiments on some of your tiles too! 


Take some coordinating distress inks and ink up the hell outa these tiles! Throw in some color, make the stamps pop!

To add some mystery and class, distress the sides of the tile with Black Soot Distress Ink or Black Archival Ink. It absolutely brings out the beauty of every element on your tile!


You can leave some tiles plain, or you can add rhinestones, flowers and glitters on some - like I've done.


Now comes the fun part - Glossy Accents! Lay your tile on a flat surface and cover it entirely with Glossy Accents. Don't be a miser! Use the GA luxuriously - coz once it dries, it'll give a glassy/raised/embossed effect to the whole tile.


Let it dry completely for a few hours - and voila! Your tiles are set to be added to your projects!


Materials used:

  • Chipboard
  • Gesso
  • Glossy Accents
  • Acetate
  • Stamps
  • Sentiment stamps
  • Black Archival Ink
  • Distress Ink
  • Rhinestones
  • Flowers
  • Glitter
  • Pattern Paper
  • Chain
  • Glue

Hope you guys enjoyed my creations. Can't wait to see how you add your own twist to this!

Love- Photo Frame by DT Mounika

Hello everyone,

I am Mounika and I am so happy to be on Rainbow Craftykari Blog with my Inspiration Post.


Everyone loves to treasure memories in a special way, and if those memories are with our kids they are all the more special! To treasure such special memories with my son who will turn 3 this August, I  made this frame.



To begin with, using Papericious black gesso I primed the frame. I then traced down the shape of the frame on a piece of pattern papers and cut it. I have used the Aazealian paper stack from Papericious's latest collection. I then stuck down the pattern paper and cut down the extras. To add some texture I used a bubble stencil with texture paste. Once it was dry I took small pattern papers and roughly arranged them. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I glued everything down. For the embellishments, I used a chipboard heart coloured using blue and yellow chalk paint. On the yellow hearts, I added glitter.



The main focal flower was made using Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp and then shaped, the "love" sentiment embellishment was coloured using Prima Art Alchemy waxes. I used the same on the frame as well to highlight the texture at places. 


Here are some close ups:

  • MDF frame
  • Papericious- Black Gesso
