For my cards, I chose to use the Dream and Imagine die cuts words for my cards. On this card, I used the Dream die and the first thing that came to me was a Dreamcatcher. Somewhere I saw a dreamcatcher that had an owl for the centerpiece and the owl was so similar to this one, I thought this little owl would be perfect. I die cut him out of black and the solid owl version out of white. I also cut another detailed owl out of white paper to place on top of the solid backing so I could see where I wanted to color. After coloring the solid backing, I attached the black owl on top. I used some of the same markers to color a piece of white in bands before I die cut the Dream word. The feathers were stamped, colored and fussy cut. For the dreamcatcher, I die cut a sunflower and backed it with a circle die cut.
The finished card is 4.25 x 7 and these are the Copics I used.

My second card features the Imagine die.
I stamped the Toadstools & Violets, colored them then die cut them using a little bit of my out of the box technique. I had some left over pieces of violet, lavender and rust that coordinated nicely, so I used the closest sizes of matting basic dies to give them a little polish. I die cut the Imagine, corners and top bracket out of white and added them for contrast.

My final card features the Floral Frame and Embellishments along with the larger Floral Dragonfly & Solid Dragonfly dies.
I had some spritzed, water colored background left over from another project with these bright red/orange colors so I die cut the dragonflies and Dream out of it. The larger background behind the floral frame was made by sponging on a variety of pink, red, yellow and orange inks. After I die the floral frame out of white, I used a slightly smaller square die to trim down the left over square center in order to leave some of the red/orange border around it. This card measures 5″ square.
