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.

Windmill Fields on New Horizons


I have several family anniversaries coming up, so I decided
to crank out some cards to send out at the appointed time.
 
This card uses several recently retired products; Windmill
Fields dies, New Horizons DSP and some unnamed DSP
from my stash.  I just love being able to layer die cut
elements on the New Horizons DSP background.  Windmill
Fields has tons of cool elements, some of which cause sticky
fingers as you are trying to glue them down!  You can buy these
dies at a huge discount, because they have retired.
