Paper Pumpkin, January 2019, Animal Outing, Pillow Box
How stinking cute are these Pillow Boxes created from the January 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Paper Pumpkins are our All-Inclusive Kits that you can receive each month.  The content is a complete surprise, which I must say adds to the anticipation.  Unfortunately, I was unable to open my box Live and create on YouTube this month.  That being said, I couldn’t resist showing you what was included in the January Paper Pumpkin Kit and share a few alternatives I created with the kit as well.  As you can see above and below this kit coordinates with the Animal Outing Bundle from the Annual Stampin’Up! Catalog.  The collage above shows the Pillow Boxes assembled per the instructions included in the kit.  The pictures below are a few alternatives I designed myself, playing around with all the stamps and paper supplies included in the kit.

Alternative #1
Melon Mambo was the Ink Spot included in the kit this month and the coordinating colors were Whisper White and Pool Party.  I grabbed the chameleon stamp included in the kit and using Melon Mambo Ink stamped him all over a piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock for a back ground layer.  I chose to use a Pearlized Doilie to place behind the Pool Party stitched heart and added the adorable chameleons and sentiment.  Try as I may, I had a hard time acquiring a great picture but trust me the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon looks beautiful on this card.  The final touch was three of the enamel hearts, scattered over the card front which also came in the kit.

Card Base – Melon Mambo – 11″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″
First Layer – Pool Party – 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
Second Layer – Flirty Flamingo – 5 1/4″ x 4″
Ribbon – Berry Burst Metallic Edge – 9″

Alternative #2
This alternative is actually a note card.  Once again I chose stamps included in the kit and created my own back grown on Pool Party Cardstock.  I cut down one of the pillow boxes and backed it with Whisper White Cardstock cut with my Rectangle Double Stitched Dies.  I used my Blender Pen and my Melon Mambo and Pool Party Stamp Pads to color in the birds.
Card Base – Whisper White Note Card
First Layer – Melon Mambo – 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″
Second Layer – Pool Party – 2 3/4″ x 4″
Third Layer – Whisper White – 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
Fourth Layer – Pillow Box Cut Down – 2″ x 3 3/4″
Scrap Whisper White

Alternative #3
My final alternative uses one of the pillow boxes and one of the sentiments from the kit.  Because this kit coordinates with the Animal Outing Stamp Set, I chose the rhino with the bird on his horn.  Stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him in with my Smoky Slate, Lovely Lipstick and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs.  I used the largest Stitched Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Largest Scalloped Oval as well.
