Lighthearted Leaves Square the Pillow Box for PPA 268

PPA 268 Sept. 17The PPA 268 sketch challenge reminded me of the newest square pillow box made from the thinlits on page 41 of the Holiday catalog.  I had not taken the opportunity to actually use this thinlit set until now. And let me tell you…. it was so much fun putting the pillow box together.

Lighthearted Leaves, Square Pillow Box ThinlitsThe square pillow box was made from a sheet from the Farmer’s Market DSP.  The leaves attached to the center of the pillow box were stamped from images in the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set available in our current holiday catalog.  Using the Leaflets Framelits to cut out the individual leaves, they were gathered in the center.  The spider doily which is white on the reverse side, was inked in Crushed Curry. Adding a length of Rich Razzleberry cotton ribbon to secure the leaves provides the center interest of the square pillow box.

The leaves were gold embossed and colored with various Stampin’ Up! alcohol pens.  I love that particular effect!

Come take a look at what other inspiration ideas the PPA Design Team has in store for you. Hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Have fun stamping,

    WOW…this is gorgeous! I love the Fall colors too and you’ve shown them so beautifully here. I don’t have this pillow box, but I may have to change that. I love those new doilies and thought how cool it would be to color the back side too. Perfect!
