HAPPY fall for Prickley Pear Stamps

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great weekend! I have a gorgeous Fall card to share with you today to warm you up just in case your weather is still a bit chilly! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I created this pretty acetate front card for Prickley Pear Stamps this past Fall which is a direct CASE of a Fall card I made for another design team using the same leaf stamps and dies but different cardstock, embellishments and border die. Prickley Pear’s owner saw the other card and requested a sample, so I got busy! This card features the Fall Leaves stamp set with coordinating Leaf die set along with the Stitched Scallop Border die set. The main differences on this card are ivory cardstock and gemstones, whereas the original card was created with white cardstock and had wood heart embellishments. The scalloped border dies look basically the same and would be very difficult to tell one brand from the other, but the angle on this card is slightly different.

I cut a standard A2 size card base from CutCardStock Basis Natural cardstock. I cut a section out of the front flap of the card base with a die from the Stitched Scallop Border die set, adhered the acetate to the back side of the flap, and adhered the bottom portion of the front flap to the front of the acetate. I stamped the front and inside sentiments in Memento Espresso Truffle ink. Using the Prickley Pear Stamps Fall Leaves Stamp Set and coordinating Leaf Die Set, I stamped several sets of leaves in brown ink and die cut them, keeping the leaves in the negative spaces by putting small strips of washi tape on the back side of the cardstock. I inked the die cuts with carved pumpkin, fired brick, forest moss, walnut stain distress inks, and once dry, I removed the washi tape from the back side of the cardstock and removed the die cuts. I adhered the die cuts randomly to the inside of the card base being sure to cover all areas visible through the acetate. I adhered several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Topaz Twinkle Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick.

Here’s a shot of the inside panel with all the die cuts in place.

And one more look with the card closed. Such a pretty design that was fairly labor-intensive but definitely worth the time it took to assemble! LOVE this stamp set and coordinating dies!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. This card is really lovely. I have some die sets from Spellbinders that have curves like this. I should try them. I do realize that Ali Express has a lot of pirated dies. I do try to make sure I don’t buy any. I usually can recognize designer’s work and stay away from them. I have seen Stampin’ Up and Mo’s Digital Pencil, also. I have only bought about ten dies then realized I had to stop. I have hundreds and hundreds that I do not use. I got an enormous quantity from a friend that had to go into a nursing home. I have not used but a few of my dies. I need to make a point of using them and giving away the ones I don’t like.

  2. Gorgeous card! I couldn’t figure out how the piece at the bottom was attached until I looked more closely and saw the acetate. The background is amazing. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!
