Stampin’ Up! Lots of Pun December Paper Pumpkin….AND Some Blog Candy!

Happy happy Hawwwwmp Day, y’all!  Do you realize this is the LAST HAWWMP Day of 2021!?!?  Next time we invoke the memory of MIKEMIKEMIKEMIKEMIKE…it’s be 2022!

So – yesterday, I got my new December Paper Pumpkin kits – the cutie-patootie called Lots of Pun.  I started to pull it all open and then I changed my mind.  Instead – I decided to…give them BOTH to you guys this week!

A last fun thing for 2021, yes?? 🙂

Here’s a quick look at what you’ll be getting, should you win one of the kits in the random drawing!

Like all Paper Pumpkin kits – it has a fun (and exclusive!) stamp set and an ink spot – as well as all the adhesive and embellishments that you need to complete the kit!

When you open the box, you’re going to find everything (like…EVERYTHING!!) you need to create NINE fun and punny cards…

…three each of three designs! Here’s what you’ll end up with!

Here’s a quick video that Stampin’ Up! put together if you’d like to see how to put it together – and get a little closer look at some of the cute elements.

Okay – so…before we get the wheretofor’s and howtoget’s on these two funny punny kits, let’s talk about the January Kit called Kisses & Hugs!  🙂

We all know that roses are red and violets are blue, but….it’s about time that love-themed cards got an upgrade! The Kisses & Hugs Paper Pumpkin Kit will help you express that forever kind of love with heart-shaped cards that would make Cupid jealous.

The Kisses & Hugs kit isn’t JUST for Valentine’s Day, either, it works for all love occasions year-round like anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, or those “just because” days. Check out the little video below to get a taste of what’s included.

Here’s the deets on the January “Kisses & Hugs” Paper Pumpkin Kit….

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 10 cards—5 each of 2 designs—and 10 coordinating envelopes
  • Kit features an exclusive Two-Step photopolymer stamp set
  • Kit includes a Gray Granite Classic Stampin’ Spot
  • Card size: 4-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ heart-shaped cards; folded
  • Coordinating colors: Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Very Vanilla

AND – there’s a coordinating ADD-ON for you!

Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes 

Item number: 160147   $10.00


  • Contains 20 mini treat boxes and 20 heart tags
  • Gold cord: 10-1/2″ yards
  • Finished size: 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″
  • Printed with gold foil

The Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes (item 160147) are an exciting add-on to the January kit! This is a chance to create stylish treat boxes to match the heart-shaped cards in the kit.  While these boxes are small, they make a big impact that shines with gold foil printing. The Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes are sold separately starting 25 January and only available while supplies last, so don’t wait too long to snag them!

These coordinated treat boxes are not included in this month’s kit and are only available for purchase separately as an add-on online starting 25 January. You must be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber to purchase and they are only available while supplies last!

And – to get THIS kit, you MUST be signed up by 10 January!

Sign up on the 11th ….and you’ll get the February kit.  Which is probably awesome – but…it’s not THIS one!

Finn Fan Fix 

Yesterday, Finn was…scrabbling…yes, that’s the right word…SCRABBLING…under the chair in the kitchen.

With single minded intent.

I asked him WHAT in the WORLD???

To which he responded…there’s something I NEED under there!

Then he just sort of settled in to…stare it out.

He kept his eye on the “thing” until we finally gave in (we’re not as tough as we’d like to think) and moved the chair.

The “thing” was a tiny (I mean…size of my pinky fingernail!) piece of….pecan.

Yes.  We let him have it.  He found it – it was his fair and square!

    Hi Mary, I would love to win one of the “Puns of Fun” Paper Pumpkin kits.
    The first thing I’m going to do next week is prepare for my card making class at the local Senior Center. Usually 10 people participate including one man! We have a lot of fun and the participants are most appreciative.
    What do you plan on doing next week?😉

      I read this incorrectly!🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ The first item I want to purchase is the Rainbow Bundle!

  3. Hahaha…well, when you see something good under the chair, you just have to get it! 🙂 Glad that it was just a pecan and not something living! 😉

  4. Debbie Lindauer

    I am going to order the bundle boughs and blossoms. I love the punch and I feel it will sell out quickly.

  5. Hi Mary! I’m most excited for the Heart and Home suite! Can’t wait! Finn is adorable 😊

  6. Susan Wormley

    I can’t wait to get the Hello Ladybug Bundle.

  7. Oh, there are so many items on my wishlist! But, I think the first one I will NEED to have is the Hello Ladybug Bundle.

  8. Michele Herrick

    Thanks, Mary for the chance to win a paper pumpkin kit. While it’s hard to choose just one set from the new catalog (LOL), I’m looking forward to getting the Flowering Fields Suite. The set looks great & the DSP looks gorgeous. Happy New Year!

  9. Geann K

    What a fun give-away. I want everything with a punch from the new catalog.

  10. Brenda Yaste

    Is there where we post our comments to win the Paper Pumpkin prize? If so, I am excited for Bouquet of Love embossing folder/die.

  11. Kevin K Boyer

    It looks like a fun paper pumpkin. Thanks for the chance to win.

  12. Debra S Anderson

    Be glad Finn “scrabbles”, mine just whines pitifully until we figure out what he wants.
    I’m looking forward to playing with In The Moment and Paradise Palms.
    Have a safe and happy New Years celebration.

  13. Karen I

    My1st Purchase is going to have to be the Ladybug Punch and stamp set! It’s just too darn CUTE!

  15. Angie Latham

    Hmmmm . . . that’s a toughie, as I have a long list! I guess at the top of the list is the ladybug bundle. That Finn! With him around, you don’t really need a housekeeper! LOL

  16. Jeannette

    Hi Mary, what a fun Paper Pumpkin kit! Well, the first thing I’m going to order is the “Crane of Fortune” bundle … and the Soft Succulent Satin Shimmer Ribbon … and the Polished Dots … and the Symbols of Fortune DSP. All SO beautiful!!!
    For the tiniest, eeniest little bit of pecan, my mini dapple, long-hair doxie, Loli, would “scrabble” until there was a hole! She’s a digger! Love Finn’s adventures. Happy New Year!

  17. Kathy Beemer

    I’ve got my eye on the Daffodil Daydream Bundle.

  18. Cindy Otto

    I am most excited to see all the DSP in person. It’s always so much prettier in person, than in the catalog. Love Paper Pumpkin, too! Thank you for sharing! Happy 2022!💗💗💗

  19. Susan Beranek

    My 1st choice would be the Ladybug bundle!

  20. Babe O'Mara

    I can’t wait to get the Ladybug Bundle

  21. Paula Poindexter

    I have a weakness for DSPs and Embossing Folders. Will be hard to choose. I’ll be tossing a coun to figure out where I start.
    Thanks for sharing Finn with me.

  22. Phyllis W.

    Thanks for the chance to win a paper pumpkin kit. There are so many cute sets, but so far my favorite is rainbow of happiness.

  23. stampsnlingers

    From Nicole ( – I am a new follower this year. I always enjoy your creativity in both card design and you word choice. I was looking to respond to your candy blog give away…not sure this is where (I am a bit of a non-techy) but my daughter and I have been enjoying paper pumpkin kits together. From the new mini, I think I am most looking forward to the New Horizon mainly because I LOVE the DSP.

  24. Hi Mary, I am dying to get my hands on the New Horizons Suite, I want it all! Those paper are stunning and do most of the work for you. That Paper Pumpkin kit is adorable, thank you for hosting this awesome giveaway. Wish my pupper was under my table! Happy New Year

  25. Lol , found it!
    I think this PP is so cute!

    The artfully layered I have my eye on, in the new catalog.
