Masculine/Nautical Cards- Simon Says Stamp July 2015 card kit

A few weeks ago I finally demolished my July card kit.  I am in need of masculine cards, so this was a perfect opportunity to build up my stash.
 This first set of three were inspired by Yana's card (#5 in the Simon Says Stamp gallery.)  I made my own changes, of course!  The red dot strip was left over from my stash, and actually was not part of the kit.  I fussy cut the life preservers and popped them up.
 These wonderful metal anchors and twine were part of the kit (top two cards.)  They were inspired by Debbie's card (#104 in the SSS kit gallery.)  I loved her life preservers, but I wanted to use those anchors.  The bottom two cards were inspired by scraps and the pretty patterned paper in the corner of one of the 6x6 papers (both white tags.)
 The top left card (actually there are two there) was inspired by that pretty paisley paper and how wonderfully it coordinates with that aqua card stock (also in the kit).  The other three were inspired by scraps.  (The navy paper with stars on the bottom two cards actually came from my Echo Park 6x6 Scoot pad.)
And my final use of scraps…I added these two buttons from my stash.  Fourteen cards in all!

For the past few weeks when I have had time to create I have alternately been playing with the August, September, and October kits.  I have made several cards from each kit so far, but not quite demolished any one kit yet.  Hopefully this post may inspire another Simon Says Stamp card kit fan or someone who owns Authentique's Seaside papers.

Happy Sunday!
