How Designs2 started their other graphic design journey

Overview

I run a couple of websites, each based on different themes. I'm looking for a set of six standard website elements (button/tab bar/image slider/...) that will look great in any theme.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The designed elements are for myself and other bloggers. The key is that the elements will be used with various blog/website designs so they have to look somewhat neutral.

The design should be simple, but elegant (i.e. no "loud" colors, no strong "plastic" looks).

The the buttons and menus of the WordPress admin interface are a good example of what I'm looking for. (See attached image for more designs in that direction.)

Requirements

Attached is a mockup with each of the elements. The actual design does not have to resemble the mockup (e.g. if the mockup has a border, the element does not need one if it does not fit the design).

Button:
* 1 simple, light gray button. Rounded corners. This one should look great no matter where it is placed
* 6 color variations of the button - a few nice colors that will work in most themes.

Horizontal Tabs:
* Consists of the tabs and content area. Needs some indication of selected tab. Will be used to organize content, show steps of an ordering process, etc.

Vertical Tabs:
* List of selectable entries on the left, content area on the right. Does not need to have border around content. Selected element needs to stand out. Used as table of contents, menu/navigation, list of services, etc.

Toggle Box:
* Has a heading, content, and indicator (with open/closed state).

Content Slider:
* Imagine this as a Featured area on a blog. Posts rotate through this. Has a content area and prev/next buttons

Image Slider:
* Needs prev/next buttons, indicator of which image is shown

Outcome:
* Layered PSD file(s) with focus on making it easy to translate into HTML/CSS
* A PNG version of all elements (one for each or all on one large image)

**Please see attached mockup for details**
**Update: Included sample screenshots of designs I like**
