It has taken me a couple of days to find the time, but I've finally finished this card. I cut a window from my card front to resemble the 4 inspiration squares from Lawn Fawnatics challenge #5. I also used a couple of the inspiration squares and the colors for the card. I stamped the tree and cat and colored them with Copic Markers. I die cut the tree and fussy cut the cat. I die cut 8 flowers and I cut a piece of light pink twine and colored them with the same Copic Markers to match. After coloring the little flowers I used a stylus to push them into a thick mouse pad to give them dimension. I drew the floor using my checkerboard flooring technique at Splitcoaststampers. I just staggered the horizontal lines to resemble wood floors. I stamped the floor using the Lawn Fawn Woodgrain backdrop stamp. I scored in the baseboard lines then stamped my sentiment using my Misti. The cat is popped up with foam tape and the card front is popped up over the card base to give dimension to the window and make room for the little flowers. I added Wink of Stella to the flower centers and the cat's nose.

I only have one Neat & Tangled stamp set at the moment so I will need to put my thinking cap on until I get a few more sets. I've already used this set twice so we shall see what is next..... This card was easier to design in my head than it was to create.
I created a stencil out of thin card stock using the Cheery Lynn background die.
I trimmed the inside to create the path so I could use as a stencil to sponge just the path. I taped off the other squares and sponged with TH distress ink.
I traced the path and cut a piece of acetate to cover just the path and not the squares. I die cut another background from Neenah card stock and glued the acetate path to it. I die cut another background out of a piece of fun foam to use for dimension and was surprised when I went to adhere it to my card stock that the foam had stretched..... But I worked with it until I got the squares to line up as close as possible. I stamped, colored my mouse and created a curly little tail and let dry. When I went back to get him, he was gone..... No where to be found... So I colored another little mouse with a curly little tail to use. I added Wink of Stella to give me a little sparkle and the tail made from embroidery thread. I combined two different stamps sets to create my sentiment.

Power Poppy: Frame it Up
Simon Says Wed Challenge Blog : Going Dotty. The center of the daisies are like dots.
flower clipart for my inspiration. I arranged the Power Poppy Hellebores digi in three places using my old Printmaster program. After printing it out I took a rectangle die and penciled in the inner rectangle and then used a kraft knife and scissors to cut the frame and around all of the flowers that were inside the frame. My flowers are colored using Copic Markers. I popped up the frame over my printed Power Poppy sentiment and it was all attached to my card base.
This is my first attempt at a frame for the Power Poppy challenge. I had attached it to a card but wasn't very happy with it. I removed it from the card so I will just display it in my craft room as is. I layered the Power Poppy Gerbera Daisies digi to create a background. I die cut several rectangles from the background and popped up two frames. It was colored with Copic Markers and Wink of Stella was added to the orange daisy. The sentiment was computer generated.

This little dragon from SugarPea Designs is so cute. I stamped him with Memento ink and die cut him with the inner circle of the Beautiful Bauble die. Everything is colored with Copic Markers. The circle is popped up using foam tape.
I die cut three celebrates from black card stock and one from black fun foam. I added fun foam to the back of the ce and the ate only, so when I glued the lebr to the circle it was all the same thickness. I added Wink of Stella to the bubbles.
