Elements of Style En Francais

I'm falling in love with Calypso Coral.  And I especially love it paired with Early Espresso!  For the main image of this card I first stamped En Francais in Crumb Cake on scrap paper and then on my Very Vanilla card stock.  I ended up with a light, uneven image - which is exactly what I wanted!  I then stamped the large floral image from Elements of Style in Calypso Coral.  The sentiment is framed with layers of various punches and a few pearls.

  • Stamps: En Francais and Elements of Style
  • Paper: Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock
  • Ink: Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Classic Stampin' pads
  • Accessories: Pearl basic jewels, Crumb Cake 3/8" taffeta ribbon
  • Extras: Large Oval, Scallop Oval and Decorative Label punches

Happy Stampin',


  1. That is so pretty, and I have to agree about the color combo. I love making my own "patterned papers" with cardstock and stamps also. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are two of my most favorite stamps ever! I think you did a great job combining them into a beautiful backdrop. The color combo was so pretty - I'll have to give that a try!

  3. Very pretty! I like the stamped off effect to create the soft background! Great colors too!

  4. I have been wondering what color to match the new incolor with. You made a good choice. These two stamps sets are some of my favorites. Love it.
