For my alternative card I used the cap stamp from the Batters Up Stamp Set from this months kit to create a fun masculine themed designer series paper.  I stamped the caps in primary colors to keep the card very colorful and simple.  I used Night of Navy, Real Red, and Bumblebee Inks for the stamping.  I stamped the sentiment onto a one of the labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies to cut out my sentiment.  I added some of the twine and matte dots from this months kit.  

Play Ball, Batters Up:

For my second project I created a 12" x 12" scrapbook page.  Since there are always team pictures for baseball teams I thought it would be fun to use some of the elements from the kit to create a fun scrapbook page.  I took the inspiration for the background from one of the cards in this month's kit.  I masked off areas and used my Blending Brushes to Ink Blend the Real Red Strips.  I then used the Playful Alphabet Dies to cut out the phrase Play Ball.  I used one of the pinstriped card bases and some Foam Adhesive Sheets to put them up.  I have a place on the spread for three pictures one 4" x 6" and two 3" x 4" photos.
