Friendship Layout by DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,


I'm Priya Mishra and am very excited to share my first DT inspiration post for Rainbow Craftykari blog. I have created a project as an inspiration for our Rainbow Friendship Challenge.

Here's what I made...

The theme is absolutely wonderful and I wanted to make something CAS this time. This has been my weakness and I struggle to leave white space with pastel shades. So this was a challenge I took up!

The base is a 12"*12" white cardstock. As the theme is Friendship, I took the photo and the sentiment from google and printed them. For my layout, I began by brushing multi medium onto the whole paper. This creates a very good base. Then, I created texture using a stencil (Bubbles all over) and texture paste. Next, I began adding colour. I used Distress Inks and a brush to spread the colours. I have incorporated all the colours of Rainbow. The chippies are from Papericious and are brushed with a thick coat of white gesso. After arranging the photo and sentiment on the base I added some butterflies, flowers and a few sequins. I layered a doily under the photo mat. I finished it by sprinkling a few drops of colours with a brush.Here are a few close ups of the layout

Supplies Used:

  • 12"*12" White Cardstock 200gsm
  • Rangers Multi Medium Matte
  • Stamploration "Bubbles All over" Stencil
  • Papericious Chipboard Heart Mesh
  • Papericious Sequins Mixed Bag 
  • Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves, Pink Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feather, Mowed lawn, Mustard seed, Cracked Pistachio)
  • Doily
  • 3D Butterfly Stickers
  • Flowers
  • Photo and sentiment from Google Images

Almost all the above-mentioned products are available at Rainbow Craftykari Store or you can pre-order by sending email at
Hope my project inspires you. Do participate in the challenge and have fun.Hugs,

    Shaker Blooming Explosion Box by GDT Richa Maurya

    Good morning Crafters!!

    Today I am here to bring you some more inspiration for our ongoing challenge “Exploding Surprise”. Do check out the rules and guidelines for the challenge here.

    I created this explosion box using Papericious “If Only” Collection. This explosion box can be a present for anyone you love. I have kept the theme floral and have added lots of flowers and butterflies.

    First I created two layers and added pattern papers with distressed edges according to the color palette of the challenge.

    On the first layer, I have added paper doilies and some simple punched out flowers. Photos can be added later. On the inner layers, I have added Scalloped circles from same paper pack and have stamped some love sentiments. Finally I have decorated these with some roses and leaves.

    For the central 3D piece, I created a bed of handmade roses with butterflies popping out. The butterflies have been stamped on blue colored paper, fuzzy cut and attached using acetate strips. The bed has been created using a used-up tape roll covered with green glittery tape and decorated with leaves and pearls. Finally,I have added some diamond dust to give the blooms some sparkle.

    On the lid, I have added a shaker element over a distressed paper doily and have decorated it with flowers and butterflies.

    Materials Used:
    Black Cardstock
    Papericious If Only Paper Pack
    Large Flower Punch-for making the roses
    Paper Doilies
    Acetate sheet
    Butterfly stamp
    Distress Inks
    Diamond Dust
    Craft scissors
    White Glue
    Double sided tape

    Birthday Double Surprise Explosion Box by DT Aditi Mahajan

    Hello guys,

    Today I'm at the Rainbow Craftykari Blog, with an inspiration for the ongoing challenge. Do check the challenge here.

    Onto the creation. I've created a Birthday Theme Explosion Box for a girl. 

    I've used the Fairy Land Paper Pack by Papericious for this box. 

    The first box, opens to one layer, with triangular pockets (made using pearlescent cardstock and Martha Stewart border punch) in the pack on the four flaps to insert photos. We've decorated these with some flowers. Inside this, is a smaller box, that opens to two layers and a decorated 3 D cake inside. I've decorated the inside with flowers, and some sentiment words like beautiful, love, enjoy, etc die cut using sizzix dies (on cardstock). I've followed the colours of the challenge for this creations. Some embellishments have been fussy cut from the sheet in the paper pack. The patterned paper was distressed before adhering to the base.
