Uncovering RCS DT Team Day 2

Hello everyone,

We are back with the second part of our DT reveal. Without any adieu let's begin.

First up we have,

Priyanka Thukral

I am Priyanka Thukral, 26 years old, Marketer by profession & a Crafter/Artist by Passion ( a Marketer by the day & crafter by night ;) ). Since my very childhood colours and crafts have always fascinated me. I was one of those who believed in giving a handmade card to people instead of rushing to archies or other stores to buy one. I started with gifting very unique gifts to my friends something that they could connect to instantly & something that would put a smile on their face. Then, I started Happily For You with a simple aim to  make a difference in someone's life & spreading happiness in a way that has a far more impact & what better than something personalized, something they see a reflection of their own in a very unique and creative way.

And here are some of her works:

Next we have,

Khushboo Gandhi

My name is Khushboo Gandhi. I am from Mumbai, India. I absolutely love travelling and food! I've been into crafting since more than a year now and I find myself completely in love with every aspect of it; be it decoupage, mixed media, card-making, scrapbooking, etc. I've always been interested in creative hobbies like painting, photography, writing; and crafting is my new found love. I love experimenting with new techniques, new products, different mediums and creating something unique and fun. I work under the brand ‘Snowflakes and Lilies’ and I love the fact that I can bring about a deep sense of versatility in my creations and that makes me feel really happy about the kind of work that I do.

Priya Mishra

Hello, My name is Priyadarshini Mishra from Odisha, staying in Mumbai. My journey into crafting started in 2012 when I took a break from my job after the birth of my son. It all started with Quilling and now I enjoy mixed media, altered art and different paper crafts. I love learning new techniques  .I am thankful to Maninder for putting her faith in me and bringing me on board. I look forward to join the talented team at Rainbow Craftykari.

Goodbyes and Uncovering RCS DT Team Day 1

Hello Everyone,

Our old term has come to an end which means it's the beginning of a new one. Goodbyes are always hard, especially to a talented team of crafters. However, change is the only thing constant in the world.

Thank you to all our Design Team and Guest Design Team Members who created some amazing projects and provided readers with some great tutorials. You will all be missed.

Welcome to our new team!

Today we will reveal four members of our new team and tomorrow we will be back with the rest.

Without further delay let's introduce our DT Members-

First up


Hello everyone, I am Ishani! Since childhood, I have loved getting my hands smeared with glue and colours. But, the studies as a student and then establishing myself at work, didn't leave me much time to pursue a hobby. Around two years ago, I learnt Quilling which helped me cope with daily stressors.  Subsequently, I started making cards by incorporating quilled elements and gifting them to friends. With the internet full of ideas and inspiration, I ventured into using stamps and colouring with different supplies to make cards. I love to learn and experiment new techniques, my recent obsession being handlettering. From being just a hobby, card making has become a passion for me. The way I was inspired by other's work, I hope my work inspires a few too.

And below are a few of her works

Next, let's welcome back

Kriti Mishra

I am Kriti Mishra from Hyderabad, India. I have done Masters in Information Technology, and was an Astt. Prof. at a reputed engineering college. I left my job after my daughter, Akshada, was born, she is 4.5 years old and now I am a full-time mother. She allows me to do some creative work and I can see a good artist in her also. Right from my childhood, I am into crafting, and I always loved making handmade cards. I am more into Scrapbooking and making mini albums(but now exploring Mixed - media and Flower making) and love to use different kinds of pattern papers and embellishments to enhance my creativity and to share some knowledge with other people around. Previously, I used to make simple handmade cards, just to gift them to my loved ones and friends, but when I joined social media, there I saw a huge world of crafting.

And here are some of her works

Next, we have,

Shylaa Shree

I am Shylaashree from India, very happy to be on the Rainbow Craftykari Design team. I live with a beautiful family in a small industrial town in Tamilnadu.Crafting has always been part of my life, however, having a busy family it's confined to late at night when I steal a few hours to myself. Quilling is how it all began in the blog land in the name of Adhiraacreations and it was a turning point in my craft life from where I started into cardmaking, scrapbooking, alter items, 3D projects, fashion & paper jewellery & etc., I don't think I have a particular style, as it has evolved with time.Thank you Maninder for the opportunity. Look forward to the wonderful journey with Rainbow Craftykari team.

And our last reveal for today, welcoming back,

Mounika Koneru

Hi, I am Mounika from Bangalore, India. I am into handmade things since my childhood. I got into making hand-made gifts for my family and friends. After I got married, I was introduced to paper crafting in Bangalore. I then began my journey in scrapbooks, mixed media, cards and so on. I love to have colours in my projects.

Box Card Tutorial By DT Nikkita Jain

Hello crafty peeps,

Nikkita Here, I am back again with another tutorial and it's a shadow box card.
So here is the project with step by step instructions and pictures.

  • First, take a cardstock of 300 gsm and cut into respective sizes (11"x 6.5" and 6.5" x 8"). 
  • Score the 11" x 6.5" piece at 5" and 6"
  • Score the 6.5" x 8" piece at 1/2" and 1.25". Flip and score the same way on all four sides and sniff off the corners as shown in the picture

  • Create the shadow box using tacky tape or any strong adhesive and keep it aside.

  • To make the base strong add layers of cardstock on both sides measuring 6.25* 4.75 on both sides
  • Add ribbon as shown for the box closure

  • Stick to the shadow box.
  • Decorate the box as per your choice , I have made the box as a baby shower gift for a mom to be and used papericious mom to be collection, I have fussy cut the elements and made embellishments, to give a 3D look to the embellishments I have added double sided foam tape at back of the elements. Complete the box as shown in the picture and the pretty gift box is ready.

  • Note - always take the pattern paper little smaller than the base for example if the box cover is 5*6.5 inches then pattern paper should be 4.75 * 6.25.

Hello Everyone

My mother- Sunila Mahajan and me- Aditi Mahajan, started Dots to Lines and our forte is home decor, mixed media and altered art. I have pursued MSc. in Clinical Psychology and Dip. in Special Education; and too to arts and crafts since school days and also practised art therapy when working with children with special needs. I have completed an art course from School of Visual Arts, New York.

Crafting has been a part of daily activities mostly in the form of various altered projects or making gifts. We run a home decor business by the name of Dots to Lines and we handcraft products using techniques of mixed media and decoupage. We are into paper-crafting, layouts, journaling, album making and scrapbooking. Our style of art and craft is a fusion of techniques and use of vibrant colours.

Under the name of Dots to Lines, I have been officially creating and crafting for two years now. Apart from selling products and blogging, I am a part of various Design Teams.

Today, I am glad to be a part of a team as a Blog Coordinator. This is a prestigious position and I hope to do justice to it. Rainbow Craftykari is a great store and has till date provided a great education programme for fellow crafters. I hope to add to its growth and success.
