Welcome everyone! Mindy here today I’m sharing a box card I made using some March supplies from Pink & Main. The Box Card die that I’m going to use today is already in the store and the rest of the supplies are from the March 2018 release which will be available on March 10th.
I have a video to accompany this card which I absolutely recommend watching if you would like to put one of these together. They are really simple and quick to do once you get the hang of it.
I started with doing all my die cutting first using the Box Card Die. I’m also using some patterned paper from the Celebrate paper pack to decorate my flaps and the outside of my box. I do recommend a nice strong adhesive like double sided tape to put you box together so it doesn’t come apart. For attaching the patterned paper, any adhesive will work.
I’m using the Thin Fishtail Banner Die and some polka dot paper from the Celebrate paper pack for my banner in the background to decorate the back of my box.
I used the new Fired Up stamp set and coordinating elements to decorate the inside of my card. This set has a coordinating die that you can purchase separately and I used it to cut out all my images. I also used it to cut out two more of my dragon shapes from white cardstock to add as a backing once I added the images to my insert strip. This gives it a nice complete look and no one will see all the marker spots on the back.
These box cards are super fun to make and fit perfectly into a envelope for A2 sized cards, as long as nothing is hanging over the edges.
A super fun project to give to anyone!!

Hello P&M Fans,
I have a sweet card to share with you using the new Perfect Blend stamp set from Pink and Main. I used lots of layering on this one to add dimension.
First, I stamped the adorable squirrels using Versafine black ink on Canson Watercolor paper. I use Versafine ink when I’m water-coloring so it doesn’t run. Make sure you heat set the ink with a heat gun for just a few seconds prior to water-coloring. I used my new watercolor marker pens and a paint brush. I love the softness water-coloring gives the images.
The base card is a square card (5.5 x 5.5″). I cut several layers using the P&M dies listed in the supplies list below. The black stitching was achieved by my shakey hand. To finish it off, I used one of our adorable bow dies and some new glossy dots. If you haven’t tried the bow dies you are missing out! They come in three different sizes and are so fun and super easy to put together. A must in my card making supplies. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!!

February release is really awesome and I enjoy playing with all stamp sets, dies and papers. Today I have for you card with cute mouse. The firs layer is white paper, second layer is patterned paper from new Raibow paper pad, I sew those layers together on my sewing machine. Than I die cut tag with new Arch Tag Dies and I stamped on it sentiment from Rain or shine stamp set and I added Rainbow Glossy Dots and strings. I glued tag onto my card base with 3D foam tape. Last step was to stamp image from Rain or shine stamp set, colour it with watercolours, die cut it with Rain or shine dies and glue it onto card base. And card base glue onto no card.
Have a nice day
Good Morning Pink and Main Friends!
Pam M. creating with you today!
It is a beautiful spring day here in South Carolina! So before I go on my walk I thought I would make this card with soft spring colors. I used a sketch from a challenge on Splitcoaststampers and also posted it there. I love these colors and patterns together. It makes a perfect background for that sweet little bunny in the teacup!
- Use an A2 white card base cut a piece of pink checked DP from the Spring Flings 6 x 6 Paper Pad 3 1/2 x 4 1/8 and glue to the top of the white card base.
- Cut a 2 x 4 1/8 piece of green dotted DP from the My Heart Paper Pad and glue to the bottom of the card
- Cut a triangle from the 6 x 6 Shades of Spring paper pad and glue to the right side of the card
- Using the Lacy Border dies cut out a white flower border 1/2 x 4 1/8 and glue between the pink checked paper and the green dotted paper
- Using the Pink and Main Scallop Circle dies cut out the circle and glue to the card as shown
- Stamp the bunny using the Perfect Blend stamp set and color with copics: W1, 2, 3 – RV13, 21, 23 – YG21, 23, 25
- Use the coordinating dies to cut out the bunny
- Stamp the sentiment using the Perfect Blend stamp set and layer onto green dotted paper
As always thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!
Welcome back everyone ! It’s Mindy from Mindy Eggen Design and I have a super cute card to share with you today using the Rain or Shine stamp set. I absolutely love this sentiment too!!
I stamped this little mouse in the rain boots onto Neenah white cardstock using Memento Black Tuxedo Ink. Then I colored with my copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die set. One of the best things about these dies is you don’t have to cut them apart. No wire snippers needed!! It’s fantastic!!
Next, I cut a white tag from the Arched Tag Die set which has lots of great sizes. I prepped my tag by rubbing an anti static powder tool over it. Then, I stamped my sentiment also from the Rain or Shine stamp set onto the bottom of the tag using Versafine ink. Versafine ink is great because it stays wet just a little longer. Next, I added some clear embossing powder and heat set it with my heat gun.
I cut a panel of patterned paper from the Rainbow Paper Pad measuring 4″ x 5 1/4 and adhered to an A2 size card base. Then added a strip of blue cardstock and attached my tag. The adorable mouse that I cut out is added to the card using foam squares to give some dimension to the card. My finishing touches are adding some Rainbow Glossy Dots around my image and Nuvo Glitter to the puddle.
I also have a colouring and card process video that you can down below on this blog post or HERE on my channel.
