Paper Pumpkin Possibilities - July 2023 - Fun in the Sun

Welcome to our July 2023 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop.  We are sharing alternative designs for the "Fun in the Sun" kit.   This kit is so fun with the fun fold cards!  My card uses part of one of the card bases as well as the fun Adirondack chair cut outs.  Makes me want to relax for sure!

This kit includes supplies to make 9 fun accordion cold cards - 3 of 3 designs with coordinating envelopes.   It also includes a Daffodil Delight Stampin' Spot, Iridescent Sequins Embellishments as well as summertime ephemera pieces.

I used part of one of the card bases and cut out this fun beach scene and layered it on another piece I cut from the card base.  This is layered on Azure Afternoon with waves blended on using torn paper and layered onto a Daffodil Delight card base!  Don't you wish you were sitting in this lovely Daffodil Delight Chair!


  1. Cut Daffodil Delight cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Azure Afternoon cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Tear a piece of paper about 5" x 1" with a ragged top.  Use to blend Azure Afternoon ink onto Azure Afternoon cardstock using Blending Brush.
  4. Cut sunset background from card base 2" x 4"
  5. Stamp sun in top right corner using Daffodil Delight
  6. Stamp sentiment below on left using Azure Afternoon.
  7. Cut Yellow piece from card base 2 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  8. Adhere sunset piece to yellow piece 
  9. Adhere to card base on left side
  10. Colour chair using Daffodil Delight ink using Blending Brush
  11. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  12. Adhere embellishments
  13. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  14. Stamp sun in top right using Daffodil Delight ink
  15. Stamp sentiment in middle using Azure Afternoon
  16. Adhere to inside of card.
