I'm not an official member of the Blog Hop today, but I do have a couple of projects using today's set, Chrysanthemum, to show you.  The first is an altered Pepperidge Farms Creme-Filled Pirouette Rolled Wafers tin.  I love those things, although my diabetes limits my intake considerably -- I can have two of them as a snack every now and again!  

I stamped the larger of the two flower images onto some white card stock, cut it out with a Circle Nestabilities die, and adhered it to a larger circle of Stampin' Up Really Rust.  (I was sorry to see that color retired!)  I covered the tin with some more Really Rust and some retired DSP to match and added the orange bow.

I also made a card -- using the smaller flower, stamped three times, masking as I went along.  I don't know if you can see the three distinct flowers or not.  One of them is yellow, one is orange, and the third is brown.

Be sure to check out the official Blog Hop and comment often for more chances to win a free stamp set.
