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

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


Ishani


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.
