Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Fun in the Sun

Welcome to our Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop where we share alternative ideas each month to inspire your creativity!

July's kit, Fun in the Sun, is designed with adorable beachy fun fold cards!

I LOVE the designs in this kit and was struggling to see different ways to improvise with it (when you like it, why change it)?  But I finally had an idea...footprints in the sand!

I used the negative from the flip-flip die pieces and sponged them into a walking pattern to show footprints.  I used Crumb Cake Stampin' Pad and a Sponge Dauber to fill in the foot steps.

Please join me to hop to the next blog and creativity from our group:


More cute alternate ideas were shared for this kit on the Paper Pumpkin FaceBook page, see here.
