Combine Cheery Lynn Designs Dies to Create a New Die Cut

As if Cheery Lynn Designs weren't already versatile enough, I just wanted to show you today how it is possible to combine Cheery Lynn Designs Dies to create a new die cut for your next papercraft project. I love how combining the dies makes it possible to get a whole new look (which means lots more designing power for your buck ...and you just gotta love that!).

For this project, I paired two newly released dies from Cheery Lynn's Designs to create a floral centerpiece that really stands out. First, I die cut the Fanciful Flourish die from Ripe Avocado cardstock. The die looks like this...

Even on its' own, this die cut is gorgeous... but I really envisioned my project with layers of flowers too, so I chose the newly released Darling Daisies die cut that looks like this...

Then I die cut several pieces of Red Poppy cardstock so that I had a nice little pile of various sizes of red flowers (for this project I chose not to use the stems from the die, because I wanted to add them to the Fanciful Flourish cut). I created double layers with the flower cuts and adhered them together. Then I added a little gem to the center of each flower (with the I-Rock and a few Hot Rocks), so that I could end up with a finished project that looks like this.

Creating this card got me pondering other ways to combine Cheery Lynn Designs dies to create different looks using the same dies... in fact, we'd love to see examples of how you combined your dies to create a new die cut, and when you do, why not leave a comment here with a link to your project so we can visit your blog (or gallery) to see what you created too!
