SWEET AUTUMN POP-UP BOX!


I love the changing of the seasons and fall is my favorite time of the year. When I first saw these dies I knew that I wanted to make a pop-up box using them! The, "All seasons Sweet" stamp from Count Your Blessings Cling Set was the perfect sentiment to be used on the front.


Check out the detail on the Picket Fence, isn't that wood grain wonderful?! That's just from the die cut, no embossing! 


This box is packed full of fun dies! The Squirrel Set made this scene come to life, they even have tiny acorns in their mouths! 


The Bushel of Apples is nested in the Small Grass. The Pumpkin Patch has leaves tucked and scattered around it to camouflage the divider in the box.
 I've used the Reading Tree and added leaves to it. There is a rake leaning up against the fence which is from the Oak Leaves and Rake die set.


And now the birds eye view of all the new fantastic fall dies that I've used!
For more details on the hop you can go here!
All the new dies that you are seeing on the blog hop are available now at your local stamp stores and online at the IO Store

Have fun and thanks for looking!

  66. This is totally amazing, I saw this at the shop in Roswell while visiting and drooled. I have done several of these boxes but not that intricate. I'm from IN and was visiting with my sister and son who both live in Atlanta. I love to go to shop when ever I get a chance and now I have found you also design for them. They have so many cards done up and it such an inspiration to buy the stamps and dies. Thanks for sharing your creativity. I already follow Jenny.
