Expand your die – Mini Delight: Mini Paintbox

As crafters, we love colour. So this Mini Paintbox from Altenew is perfect for creating a colourful card. This little mini delight comes with an outline die for the paintbox, but most paintboxes come with a lid attached. Therefore in today’s post, I’m showing you how to expand your die to create more! I absolutely loved how this card turned out, it is so simple yet so happy and bright, and will put a smile on anybody’s face!

This is part of an Instagram hop to celebrate the new Altenew Mini delight stamp and die set. See the end of the post for more details. 

The new mini delight is available to buy from 06/15/2021 at 12:01 am EDT.

How to expand your die!

Start by stamping the Mini Paintbox in black ink onto white card. Next, using the small paint pan stamp, stamp each paint pan in the colour of the rainbows. The colours used are:

Next, use the coordinating die to die-cut this out. To create the lid, we need to die-cut the outline die out of the white card, however, we need to partially die-cut it. Align your cutting plates so it does not cut one of the longe edges. 

Along the edge where it has not completely, score along the edge and create a thin tab. Apply adhesive to the thin tab and adhere to the back of the stamped paintbox. To add a few paint swatches on the lid, use a Tombo blender pen to add a little ink on the card, fading this out. 

To create the background, use the same colour of inks to create an ink blended background with the small ink blending tool. Trim this panel down and add it to a white card base.

Foam mount the paintbox onto the front of the card, and finish by stamping a sentiment from the stamp set onto the card.
