"Combining Two Crafting Dies Into One"

Hello Friends, Followers, Visitors and Viewers.
Congrats, you made it to Hump Day!  Let's celebrate by playing with more than one crafting die today.
I'm going to use two Spellbinders dies...Elegant Ovals and Romantic Agenda.  You may use any two dies that you have in your craft room (make sure they can be combined to look like one).
How did I choose these two dies?  The suggestion came from watching a craft show on the TV last week.  The young lady who was demonstrating was asked if it was possible to combine dies to make your own.  She stated how she would cut out patterns from different dies and throw them up in the air and if they landed together she would challenge herself to put them together into one on a greeting card.
Hum-mm...I may want to try this.  I have to admit that I didn't throw anything into the air.  I took out some dies (not all), and started looking at what could be combined (possibly).  I tried my first two selections together and they seem to work fine.
I'm calling this card a prototype for future cards that will be made in the same design:
Thinking of You
Enabler's List:
cardstock: Neenah white, Recollection brown and Designer Paper from Craft Smith paper pad
die: Spellbinders Elegant Ovals #3 cut out three times and overlapped.  Spellbinders Romantic Agenda cut out and placed in the center of the elegant ovals
stamp: Cardmaking for Connoisseurs clear stamps sentiments
ink: black Hampton Art pigment ink
embellishments: three pink Martha Stewart flowers surrounded by greenery cut from Martha Stewart punches


Entry for    Word Art Wednesday Challenge Weeks #224-#225 - Anything Goes 
Worry Ends When Faith In God Begins
Enabler's List:
cardstock: Neenah white, Recollection black, light green and dark green.  Ranger Watercolor paper
pendants made using scrap pieces of Designer Paper
water color: yellow
die: Tattered Lace to cut out the bottom piece on the card with the rose which  was fussy cut from a piece of cardstock.  I  added glossy accent (you can't see in this picture) around the rose.

Thanks for viewing today.   I hope you try the technique of combining some of your dies into one and sharing your projects for us to see.   

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
