Anytime I think of the color combination pink, black and white, I immediately get swept away to a little French café. I don’t know where that image was born, but it works for me. When I received this great little stamp from Frantic Stamper, I just had to team it up with some pinks and blacks. And what a great way to use the 7 Gypsies transparencies too.




  • Cut Black cardstock at 5 ½” x 8 ½” score at 4 ¼”. Set aside

  • Cut white cardstock 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” . Cut 4” x 5 ¼” plaid patterned paper. Adhere to white cardstock.

  • Cut out 1 ½” x 5 3/8” Pink Punch cardstock and 1 3/8” x 5 3/8” Tutu cardstock. Layer then adhere to card front.

  • Cut 7” of fuchsia trim and wrap around dotted cardstock. Adhere to back of card front.

  • Cut 2 ¼” x 3 5/8” black cardstock, 2 1/8” x 3 ½” Tutu cardstock and 2” x 3 3/8” Pink Punch Cardstock. Run Pink Punch piece through Big shot using Swirls embossing folder that has been inked on inside. Layer all three pieces and adhere to card front.

  • Cut out 2 ¼” x 3 5/8” white cardstock. Stamp tower image on slight angle with Memento ink. Stamp swirls on two corners using Memento Ink.

  • Cut transparency to 2 ¼” x 3 5/8”, getting rid of tabs. Using Copic markers, color in flourishes on back side of transparency. Once dry, attach transparency to stamped image using brads.

  • Spray Cherry Blossom vine with Glimmer Mist. Cut apart blossoms and adhere to card front using glue dot strips.

  • Adhere card front to card base using double sided tape.

  • Finish card with Say it in Pearls/Crystals swirls, cut apart to fit where desired.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and sharing a fabulous Frantic Stamper French Café Moment!
