step3a

Create another group for another foreground. Name the new group more foreground. Place the group under the previous foregrounds. We still do almost the stem steps as the previous ones.

step3b

Again, create another group for the last foreground. Name this group another foreground.

step3c

Step 4 (Adding background image)

Open the background stock image to the document. Convert this image into a smart object. Place it under the foreground groups in the layer panel. With the Free Transform Tool, scale the image up. Arrange its position where needed. Please take a look at the screenshot below for your inspiration:

step4a

Give this smart object a smart filter: Custom. Apply the same setting of the previous step 2 for the custom filter. Here is the result will look like:

step4b

Next, give this layer another smart filter: Surface Blur. To achieve this, go to Filter > Blur > Surface Blur.

step5a

Add the cropped part to the main document. Place it above the background layer in the layer panel. Mask some unneeded parts.

Duplicate the fairy house layer (Ctrl+J). Give this duplication layer of the smart object some filters by going to Filter > Filter Gallery

The result should look like this:
