Trying Something Different with Tea Together, Dies, and DSP

Good Monday morning, friends!  How was your weekend?  Emma came home from college for a week-long spring break.  It's amazing to me how all can feel right in the world when one's little chicks are all under the same roof.  It also makes me happy because someone will be home with me during the day.  14 years ago, you could not have convinced me I would ever say that.  Now it fills my heart with contentment to hear someone else moving around and to be able to eat lunch together!

On to stamping.....every now and then, it's nice to have the freedom to try out an idea floating in your head.  It may not turn out like you thought, but the process of experimenting is fun!  My idea this time was to create a background using the negative die-cut space of the flower in the Tea Time dies.

I stamped the flowers (from Tea Together) on Smoky Slate cardstock, then die-cut them.  The flowers were added to the cardstock, because why waste them?  I stuck the Melon Mambo rhinestones from the Noble Peacock package to the center of each stamped flower.  I love the bit of color!

The Designer Series Paper backing the die-cut panel is from the Parisian Blossoms pack.  There are some seriously GORGEOUS patterns in that pack!  The greeting is from the set Magnolia Blooms.  You'll find that one in the Beginner's Brochure.
