Simon Says July Card kits!

Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying the first days of summer! We are heading out for a day of Vintage baseball. Nothing like a day at the ball-field on a summer afternoon!

I played a little more with the Simon Says Stamp July card kit.  The two cards I made are so completely different, you wouldn't think they came from the same kit... but they did, that's how versatile this one is!

This first card is kinda different.  I wanted to make candles... but didn't want to use yellow or orange for the flame... so I used white embossing and stuck hearts on.


I also used a bit of Stickles on the hearts just to bling them up a bit.


Below are the supplies I've used.





My next card is a pocket card.  I'm very attracted to the diagonal design, just haven't tried it out much.  I put a small card in the pocket that can hold party details and such.


It's hard to tell what was stamped and what was paper or wash tape. 



And the supplies for this one are below.




Enjoy your weekend!!! I hear there is supposed to be a SUPER moon on Sunday evening, check it out if you can!
