Got a little “monster” in your life? Then you NEED this Make A Monster stamp set before it retires! (see it online) I didn’t realize that I’d never shared this card on my blog, but it’s gotten rave reviews from not only kids, but also teen girls and twenty-somethings. Go figure!
First you stamp the monster, then add eyes, a mouth and any number of goofy appendages. Then color with crayons, pencils, watercolor, or whatever you like.
Supplies for 4 projects — ready to stamp, delivered to your front door.

Early in December my daughter decided that she wanted to make Cake Pops to kick off our holiday season. What says Christmas more than a red & white Santa hat? Plus we had red and white candy melts on hand, which is really why we chose these instead of the Christmas trees. Use what you’ve got, right?
Speaking of using what we’ve got, Stampin’ Up! supplies came in handy for bagging and the tags!
- Gusseted Cello Bags (see them online – 127850) were perfect for packing up 4 of these babies
- Merry & Type stamp set (see it online – 122552) made for sweet Christmas tags
- Decorative Label Punch to shape them (see it online – 120907)
- and Rhinestone Jewels (see them online – 119246) because everything needs bling, right?
- Bake a cake and let it cool (from a box — they crumble nicely)
- Crumble the whole cake into a big bowl (little crumbs are best — try rubbing pieces of cake against each other for even crumbs)
- Mix 3/4 of a regular sized frosting can into the cake crumbs. It should be about like playdough
- Roll the cake pop mix into cones and set them in the fridge for a couple hours or the freezer for 15 minutes to firm them up
- Melt white candy melts or almond bark according to directions (these are designed to harden and will hold your cake pop together better than regular chocolate)
- Grab each hat by the top and dip about 1/3 of it into the white candy melts
- Dip your cake pop stick into the melted candy and stick it into the bottom of the cone
- Set up to dry — we drilled a long board and covered it with foil to make a stand, but you can also use cups with weights in the bottom
- Now melt red candy melts and dip the top 2/3 of the hat. Before the candy dries, add a mini marshmallow at the top. Let them dry again.
- To make the bottom edge of the hat thicker, gently work the stick out of the hat, re-dip in the white candy melt, pour on a little food glitter and reinsert the stick

Once you’ve been “boo’d”, you place a sign in your window so other neighbors know you’ve been visited already for the year.
It’s a fun way to share treats and let the kids go around ringing doorbells and then running away
Here are the treat bags (featuring the Googly Ghouls stamp set – see it online) that we made up to leave on a couple of porches this year:
If you’re looking for a poem to include with your treats, here’s a link to one I found online.
Who doesn’t love chocolate?! And even better, chocolate wrapped in this sweet World Spectacular Designer Series Paper (see it online) and with a tag from the A Cherry On Top stamp set (see it online)?
This is a great hostess stamp set, available when your party reaches $150 or when you place an online order of $150 or more. For Online orders, the benefits are called “Stampin’ Rewards”. Be sure to order through my website so you get these rewards with your order.

Ever try to punch in a specific part of a card, only to find that the punch has moved or you didn’t center the punch as you expected? Here is a GREAT punching trick that will help you line up your punches every time. It’s a great technique for projects like this, where you need your Blossom Punch shape right in the center of each note card layer.
This little note card set and matching Fancy Favor Die gift box are one of the 4 projects from my current Stamps in the Mail Club round! (learn more)
I am in love with these colors! They remind me of rainbow sherbet, which is my absolute favorite Baskin Robbins flavor…oh, and Daiquiri Ice, YUM. Until it’s available this summer, I’ll content myself with stamping in Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Peach Parfait.
- Punch a piece of sticky note so the punched shape includes a sticky edge
- Place this mask over the paper, positioning where you’d like the final hole
- Punch directly over the mask, lining punch with shape. VOILA!

When was the last time you did a card without color? Sometimes a monochromatic card (“one color”) or a black & white card is a refreshing change of pace. Here’s a card featuring the Fresh Vintage stamp set (available as a Sale-A-Bration reward with a $50 order right now).
The card was started on a Note Card & Envelope base (see them online) (yes, I’m addicted to them — here are a whole bunch of ideas on my blog). I cut 1″ off the front of the notecard, then used the Scallop Edge Border Punch (see it online) at the edge of a piece of Basic Black card stock and stamped the Fresh Vintage flourish on the inside of the note card.
Perfect embellishments for this card — Jewels Pearls in three sizes, and the Scallop Polka Dot Ribbon in Basic Black. Yup, it comes in other colors too, but this was perfect for the B&W look. If you’re trying to match the Scallop Circle size, it’s the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. Just add with Dimensionals, and you’re set!
Looking for a fun & quick card using the Sprinkled Expressions Sale-A-Bration stamp set? (learn more about Sale-A-Bration) Here’s a simple one made on a 3 x 6″ finished card. Start with a 12 x 12″ piece of Basic Black card stock, cut it into quarters, then fold each 1/4 in half to make 4 cards.
It’s hard to see in this photo, but the bottom Daffodil Delight part of the card is textured using the Big Shot and the Stripes Textured Impressions Folder (see it online). The stamps are both from the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set (free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration).
Be sure to check out my other Sale-A-Bration project ideas!
The stamp set is Gift Givers from the Holiday Mini Catalog (check it out). There’s one stamp for each holiday. There are a couple of fun techniques on this card:
Check out the little jacket & hat! They’re made from Designer Series Paper. For this Paper Piecing technique, just stamp the image on the DSP and cut out. Apply the little pieces to your stamped image.
Check out the snowflake background! It’s the Reverse Texturz Technique using the Big Shot and a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This one is the Snow Burst folder from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Check the Video Tutorial on this technique for detailed ‘how-to’.
Like the Scallop Circle Punch and the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch here? They’re both on the Clearance Rack, along with nearly 200 other new products, for up to 80% off. Be sure to shop early for best selection.

Are there a few ‘must have’ items that I love? For sure! Okay, probably way more than a few. But high on the list is the new Lace Border Ribbon Punch (see it online).
The border punch is shown here on a simple card (think Express Stamping) along with the Best of Everything stamp set (see another idea here). I love how the frilly punched card stock complements the extra flair of the Decorative Label Punch (another idea) piece for the greeting (included in the stamp set).
