Sweet Strawberry set and Strawberry Builder Punch

 This card uses the retired Sweet Strawberry set, with
Strawberry Builder punch.  They are just a wonderful combination.
 I colored the berries and leaves
with Stampin' Blends.  The retired Berry Delightful DSP
was used as a background layer.

Bird Banter Happier Than Happy Owl

 This card combines the Happier Than Happy set, bundled with
the Happy Forest Dies, layered on to 
retired Beauty of the Earth DSP.  I really like this combination
for a more adult theme.  The sentiment comes from the retired
Bird Banter set, cut out with a die from the Meadows Dies.

Tulip Dies with New Horizons

 For this card, I used the Tulip dies to cut out the
New Horizons DSP.  This save you the trouble of trying
to color the petals and creates a really nice texture.

Paradise Palms with Oceanfront

 This is a fun, clean and simple card using the Palms dies.
I simply masked out a circle and used dies from the
Oceanfront set to stamp the beachy background.
I then cut out a Palm and layered it over the backdrop.
I added the sentiment from the Paradise Palms set.

He's the Man Specialty DSP

 I love the He's the Man Specialty DSP.  It's the best thing
since sliced bread with a slab of butter on it, for making
masculine cards.  I would never have put these colors
together, but they work so well.  The elements that coordinate 
with the DSP reflect the background paper.  Love it!

Amazing Silhouettes with Quiet Meadow

 This card features several In Colors, including Tahitian
Tide, Orchid Oasis and Polished Pink.  I colored the stamp
from Amazing Silhouettes with several colors before stamping.
I then added some speckles from the Quiet Meadow set.
I used the Plenty of Patterns Layering Decorative Mask to 
add a background and then ran the card base through an
embossing folder.  The sentiment comes from the Well
Written Dies.  Finally, I punched the edge of the Polished
Pink layer with the retired Tab Punch.
