Bloomin' Easy

I just loved this layout from Clean and Simple Stamping. It was the Fall-To Layout last week. The flower, from Bloomin' Doodles, is stamped, colored with Copics, cut out, and covered with Glossy Accents. I also used Say It In Script, which is this week's product of the week, and therefore 20% off!
How 'bout that background paper? I love the new digital paper pack made to go with this stamp set. It's called Bloomin' Doodles also. Here's a little peek at how I printed my paper(s). I cropped a quarter of a sheet of each of these four papers and added them all to one document. I use PhotoShop Elements. That way I can get a variety of papers on only one sheet. Because I never use whole sheets anyway. They just end up laying around, making a mess of my stamping desk. You can see how they print with a border, since I don't have a borderless printer. At least not that I know of. LOL. So they work perfectly for layering on 4.25 x 5.5 inch cards.

What's In It?
