Stampin’ Up! Some Make-and-Take 2018 Occasions Sneak Peeks

Good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Sunday and I’m on my way home!!  Or will be soon, depending on where you’re reading this!  Here’s what it looked like out my hotel window yesterday once I’d made it to SLC.

A pretty vast change from the day before…but look how pretty the sun is shining thru the clouds!  I will miss the high desert weather, there’s no doubt!

So – make note of this, y’all!  I’m sorry to disappoint, but there’s no way I can get home today, unpack and have everything ready to do a FB Live Video this evening.  I mean, I’m good, but…that’d just be biting off more than I can chew. 😦  So…we’ll reconvene next Sunday night!

I figured I’d share a couple of the make-and-takes that we did at OnStage – they’ll give you another taste of what’s coming in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

The first goody is from the Petal Passion Suite – using the Petal Passion stamp set…  

We stamped the little bird in Calypso Coral on a Whisper White Circle then popped it over some of the Petal Passion DSP – that we’d added a little Calypso Coral color to with a Blender Pen.  Check out the new Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon underneath!

Our next make-and-take used the Bubble Over stamp set and bundled Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.  

Check out the DSP…that’s from the Sale-A-Bration flyer – and will be available FREE with a $50 purchase.  I love that the SAB goodies – so many of them! – coordinate with sets in the Occasions Catalog.

We decorated one of the new Silver Mini Gable Boxes – which is part of the Sweet Soiree Suite!  This is a cake-decorator’s dream suite – and perfect for wedding, engagement, or birthday celebrations.  It includes – wait for it! – new Embossing Paste in Shimmery White and Silver!  With a new set of Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks to help you “decorate” your card cakes!

Now – I didn’t finish my make-and-take all the way, cuz I need to get it home.  But…here’s what it WILL look like!  I love these little treat/gift holders!  

It’s embellished with Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP and gorgeous new Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon (it’s edged in Silver!). And, with the advent of Dark Pink, Silver and White Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie (think Easter basket grass – but not green!) to put inside to cradle and cushion your treats…you’re going to want bunches of these!

At our last “station” we used the new Tutti Frutti Suite to make a couple of adorable little tags.  We stamped and punched some fruit – using the Fruit Basket stamp set and bundled Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack…

…added a little paper from the Tutti Frutti DSP Stack (this is a 6″x6″ pack)…

…and made these!

Seriously cute set, y’all!

Okay – that’s enough to whet yer appetite for this wonderful new catalog, yes?

I’ll be back tomorrow.  Cleaner (from Finn-Lickings) and ready to rock and roll!  And – guess what?  Got another pretty sneak peek for you…

Stampin’ Up! Not-So-Ugly Christmas Sweaters!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  With any luck I’m toting my suitcases to the car and getting ready to check out and head to the hotel in SLC in preparation for my flight tomorrow morning!  I took two boxes to the post office yesterday to mail home to myself – they were a combined weight of 37 pounds!  And I’m still holding my breath that my two suitcases won’t exceed the weight limit!  Yikes!

You guys all know how much I’m looking forward to the Aussie-mob scene when I get home! A wake up and a flight is all that’s left to get done! 😉

My card today uses the so fun little Christmas Sweater stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  Only thing is – I thought Christmas Sweaters were supposed to be ugly??  The sweaters in this set really aren’t.  Especially this one.  Take a look-see:

I used a couple of designs from the Be Merry DSP – the first one, matted on Cherry Cobbler – forms the card front.  Then I matted a smaller piece and adhered it with Fast Fuse.

Over that smaller piece, I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a silver Foil Snowflake.

For the art, I stamped the Santa Christmas Sweaters image in Cherry Cobbler on a piece of Whisper White card stock and matted it on Cherry Cobbler.  Using my Blender Pens to pick up the color from the lids of my ink pad, I colored the background of the sweater in Garden Green.  His hat is colored the same way in Cherry Cobbler.  For his face, I used the Ivory Stampin’ Blend!  How realistic does that look?!?  I added some Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blend (the darker one) to his nose, and then used the Light Pool Party Blend to color his spectacles.

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the first part of the Christmas Sweaters sentiment in Garden Green on the bottom of the panel.  Then, with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker, I added some ellipses (you know… dot dot dot) after the sentiment and popped it on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Clear Faceted Gem and a holly sprig Stitched Felt Embellishment (with a Glue Dot) and the card front was done!  Hint:  the berries in the Stitched Felt holly are Real Red.  So…I used my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker to color them a little and then popped some Cherry Cobbler heart Enamel shapes on the top of them!

On the inside, I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig again to add the rest of the sentiment (including three more ellipses at the beginning) in Garden Green to a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I stamped the sweater again in Cherry Cobbler.  I inked the stamp and stamped it off three times before stamping the panel! 🙂

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Garden Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another full strength – and fully colored! – Christmas Sweater on the front (don’t forget to slide the plastic sheet from the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig into the envelope before you color with Stampin’ Blends!!)…

..and some more Be Merry DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a fun set of stamps, I think, especially as we head into Christmas!  And I really love the Be Merry DSP (from the Annual Catalog) – Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green is my fave Christmas-y color combination!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek – Flying Home!

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’re ready for a weekend!  I know I am – and I’m ready for this one in particular!  Should be headed to the airport tomorrow to fly home on Sunday!  Whoo-hoo!  

I wanted to share a fun little card I made with the new 2018 Occasions stamp set that I won in a Prize Patrol last week at OnStage!  I was so excited – because I loved this set from the second they showed it on stage!

So I decided to just go ahead and make a card with it – and those absolutely adorable little birds and butterflies sort of said “inchie” to me.  I added a quick sentiment from All Things Thanks and some Night of Navy Gingham ribbon.  Take a look-see:

I started with a simple piece of Whisper White card stock, matted on Basic Black.

I stamped 9 little Flying Home images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on 9 little 7/8″ squares of Whisper White.  Each one of those squares is matted with Liquid Glue on a scalloped edge square – 1″ (hence the name!) – cut from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I let the squares be just the tiniest bit “wonky” on their mats – I kind of liked the whimsical feel of them!

I used my Light Night of Navy and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color each image and added some accents with my Night of Navy and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – creating a grid – but not a too “severe” one.  If you’ll notice, they’re not all perfectly perfect.   

On the bottom of the card front, I stamped the sentiment from All Things Thanks using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I colored just the one word with my Night of Navy Marker – cuz that’s all I wanted!

There’s another little Flying Home butterfly next to the sentiment – stamped and colored identically to the others.

I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape, then used a second piece to tie a “faux bow” – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the butterfly several times on a Whisper White panel, added flutterby tracks with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and colored them with my Blends.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Flying Home butterflies and flutterby trails on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously?!?  How cute are those little guys?!?  They’re just the icing on the cake in this gorgeous Flying Home stamp set!  I hope you like – and I know you’re writing this one down for when this super catalog goes live in January!! 😉

Our colors this week presented a tiny challenge for me…I brought not one sheet or scrap of Emerald Envy card stock.  Odd, since I brought the ink pad and the Stampin’ Write Marker, but…there you have it!

So, I pulled on my thinking cap (nope – it’s not Emerald Envy either!) and decided I could use some paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP and make a little something with the Smitten Mittens bundle.  Take a look-see:

LOL – not a lot of Emerald Envy, but it you squint and look real close…it’s there! 🙂

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I ran thru the Big Shot in the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF and matted on a piece of Real Red with Fast Fuse.

The next layer is from the Christmas Around the World DSP – I cut it larger than I wanted and then cut one edge with the long die in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits set.  I adhered that smack over top of the embossed Whisper White panel with Liquid Glue.

I used some more Liquid Glue to adhere a silver Foil Snowflake to the card front.  

For my mittens, I cut out two of them with the dies in the Many Mittens Framelits from Whisper White card stock and ran them both thru the Big Shot in the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF.  I made little “cuffs” with the cutting die in the set – then embossed them with a second die that made the “ribbing” impression.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the mittens.

Using the snowflake die from Swirly Snowflakes, I cut two snowflakes from Red Glimmer Paper.  For the other two, in an effort to get some Emerald Envy into the mix, I used my Stampin’ Write Marker to color a piece of Whisper White card stock, then I cut two more snowflakes – now in Emerald Envy! 🙂

I adhered the snowflakes together and then to the mittens with Liquid Glue.  For the “mitten string”, I tied a bow with some silver Mini Tinsel Trim and adhered the long tails to the back of each mitten with a Glue Dot.

I made the sentiment by inking the word from the Smitten Mitten set directly with my Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Marker and stamping it on a strip of Whisper White.  I snipped a banner in one end, edged the strip with my Emerald Envy Marker and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The mitten on the right is adhered with Liquid Glue directly to the card front and the left is popped over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I finished the card off with a few silver Metallic Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Smitten Mittens in Pool Party ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added two Real Red mittens and a couple of silver heart-shaped Metallic Enamel Shapes.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two more Real Red Smitten Mittens on the front – along with a couple silver heart-shaped Metallic Enamel Shapes…

…and I added some more of the Christmas Around the World DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – I’m a little smitten with this card!  The Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF just makes the Smitten Mittens so cozy and warm, don’t you think??  And the Swirly Snowflakes tie in perfectly.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Wise Men From Afar

Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  One week from now, we’ll all be making pies and hard boiling eggs and generally getting ready for Thanksgiving. And I’ll.  Be.  Home!!  I’m not sure you can really truly grasp how ready I am to NOT be here.  

Let me clear it up…Very.  Very.  Ready! 🙂

My card for today uses a lovely Christmas set that I haven’t played with before called Wise Men From Afar.  I added some neutral colors and a little embossing and…take a look-see:

The stamped images did all the work on this one. 🙂

I started with a Soft Suede card base and Fast Fuse’d a Basic Black panel to it – at a slight angle.  The next layer is another one of Soft Suede – I embossed it in the Ruffled Dynamic TIEF – to bring to mind sand dunes – and then Fast Fuse’d it over the Black panel.

For my sentiment, I started by heat embossing the three Wise Men From Afar in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on the side of a Very Vanilla panel.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I added the sentiment in Soft Suede.

There are two sizes of palm trees in this stamp set – I used the smaller tree and embossed it twice in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to add “sand” at the bottom of both trees.

On a piece of scrap Very Vanilla, I heat embossed the large tree in Copper and then fussy cut him.

I Fast Fuse’d my sentiment panel to a Basic Black mat and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – plus some smaller cut up pieces – to pop the large tree on as well.

I finished up with a gold star from the Year of Cheer Embellishments, adhered with a Glue Dot, and a bow tied from one length each of Linen Thread, Copper and Gold Metallic Thread.  I stuck a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the middle of the bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Wise Men From Afar in Soft Suede in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  A large tree, heat embossed in Copper, leans next to the sentiment.  I used the “sand” image in Soft Suede at the bottom of the tree and added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Soft Suede card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another of the large Wise Men From Afar trees and sand in Soft Suede on the front…

…and more of the small trees on the envelope flap.  I stamped the image across the flap – stamping twice without re-inking.

Et Voila!  What a lovely stamp set, yes?  Bringing the tale of the Three Wise Men, that so many of us grew up with, to life!  And when it’s rendered in copper and gold…well, I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Hug in a Patterned Pumpkin Patch for the Stamp Ink Paper #125

So – good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Tuesday – almost the last Tuesday I’ll be in Utah.  I’ll actually admit that I’ll miss it here a little – the scenery is ridiculously gorgeous – especially when there’s some weather around!  I’m betting in the middle of July it might not be so appealing to me…

Before we get going, I wanted to share some pretty exciting (and totally and completely unexpected – heck, I wouldn’t have even looked!!) news with you.  I found out yesterday that I am ranked #107 in the US among Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and #227 in the world!  Holy Smokes – can you even believe that?!?  And – I have you guys and my wonderful Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew to thank for it!!  I so very much appreciate my customers and team – thank you thank you thank you!!! 🙂

Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #125 this week is a color challenge – some of my favorites!

So, since my happy-place-colors were conveniently aligned for me to use one of my very favorite bundles in the Holiday Catalog – I indulged my love of collages with the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

 

I started with a piece of Cajun Craze card stock and stamped it all over – in Cajun Craze ink – with the little pumpkin from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set.  Then I embossed it in the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Crushed Curry.

The center panel is a beautiful piece from Wooden Textures DSP, also matted on Crushed Curry, and Fast Fuse’d to the card front.

Then I started cutting and stamping!  I cut three of the large Patterned Pumpkin die cuts – one each in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Copper Foil.  I stamped the sentiment from Hug in a Mug in Cajun Craze on a piece of Very Vanilla and adhered the Crushed Curry pumpkin to it with Liquid Glue.  Hint – you need to snip the middle two “grooves” from the die cut!

I also fussy cut some pumpkins from the Painted Autumn DSP.  A Crushed Curry “starry” Patterned Pumpkin die cut and a Pumpkin Pie-on-Crushed Curry pumpkin rounded out the patch.

I layered up the patch with some Copper Foil and Crushed Curry leaves, berries and tendrils, using Liquid Glue for all but the fussy cut pumpkin on the bottom right and the sentiment pumpkin – those are popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a slew of little Crushed Curry stars (from the die cut pumpkin) here and there among the pumpkins, using Liquid Glue. The final finishing touch was a gold star Metallic Enamel Shape just above the sentiment.

On the inside, I stamped a couple of pumpkins from the Pick A Pumpkin set – one in Pumpkin Pie and one in Cajun Craze – on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the large pumpkin first and then covered him with a sticky note mask before stamping the smaller guy.  I used my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to lightly color their stems.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Pick a Pumpkin pumpkins on the front – but I reversed them…

…and I added some more of the Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This one has just about every one of my favorite things – Fall colors, wood, and piles and gobs of goodies!!  Pick a Pumpkin and the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits – well.  Hope you’ve got them.  If not?  What are you waiting for?!?  Hope you like.

TTFN

Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek!

Well – are you ready to see some pictures of the new goodies coming in January!?  I’m betting you are!

Now – if you see something that you simply can NOT wait to get (I definitely “get” that!), let me know!  You can sign up in December and use the Occasions goodies to fill your Starter Kit!

Okay – here we go!

First – let’s take a look at the catalogs…


…and the Occasions catalog…

A little something new this year for Sale-A-Bration…there’ll be gifts for $50 purchases and for $100 purchases!  AND – there’s a WORD Thinlit set available at the $100 level.  (You’ll get some pictures of that on my Facebook page!) Whoo-hoo!!!

So – we got some free goodies at Onstage…

I’ve got a card to share with you using the pretty Flying Home set – look for that in the next week or so!

As is the norm, there are “suites” of products in this catalog.  Here’s a look-see at a few of them – check out my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page – I’ll be posting a whole slew of pictures there!! 🙂  

One of my favorite suites is Petal Passion…

I always hear we need more options to make Masculine cards – well, check out True Gentleman.  Yes – there‘s a new punch in the set, called Tailored Tag!  

And there are “wooden” buttons and Night of Navy Corduroy ribbon!

 

Perhaps you need cards for kids – and “kids at heart”?  How about the Myths & Magic Suite? Yes – those Framelits cut out unicorns, dragons, mermaids and wizards!  


The Specialty DSP has iridescent glittery designs on one side and colorful all-occasions images on the other!  

And we’re getting some coordinating Glimmer Paper, too!

As Valentine’s Day approaches – you might be interested in the Painted With Love Suite.

Complete with a little box Framelit (which coordinates perfectly with new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes!) and hearts and leaves!  

And there are Gold Vinyl Stickers, Gold Glitter Flakes and Mini Tinsel Trim in Gold and Powder Pink, too!

And – if you like kits…well.  Check out the All-Inclusive Lots of Happy Card Kit- there’s even some Watercolor Pencils in Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry!

So – definitely not all that’s in the new 2018 Occasions catalog – not by a long shot!  And I haven’t even touched on the Sale-A-Bration goodies!  I’ll be loading lots and lots of pictures onto my Facebook page – here’s a link.  Do check it out!!

Stampin’ Up! Feeling of Christmas Cheer

Good Monday, y’all!  Man, was it hard to come back out here yesterday!  Good thing I’d left all my stamping things out at the hotel – if I’d only left clothes…might have sacrificed them and just gone home! 🙂  But, on a brighter note – this is the last Monday post that will come from Utah!  This time next week – I’ll be back where I belong with Wayne and Finn and the kitties and ponies!  Whoo-hoo!

You guys – I’m so sorry about last night!! 😦  Apparently the cable company is doing some work on the fibers and cables that provide internet service out here.  I’d had good internet all afternoon.  Then when I went to try getting set up for the video….nothing.  Nada.  Zilch.  Went to the front desk and was told about this maintenance going on.  Looks like things could be spotty thru the end of the day on Wednesday.  So – I’m going to do my best to have posts uploaded and working, but…I’ll have to ask for your patience, please.  This one’s totally beyond my control.  Grrrr. 😦

Assuming I CAN get internet, then this afternoon I’ll be doing a special post with some sneak peeks from the new 2018 Occasions catalog – I’m pretty sure you’re going to want to see that one!  Y’all keep your fingers crossed, okay?!?  But – read down for a SPECIAL announcement!!  You’ll be happy you did!!

I used some of the pretty (and shiny!!) paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and married it up with the Feeling of Christmas stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The card started with the Year of Cheer DSP, cut to the full size of the front of the Garden Green card base and adhered with Liquid Glue.  I added a second piece to the inside of the card while I was at it! 🙂

The sentiment layer is just a piece of Whisper White – I stamped the wreath image from Feeling of Christmas in Versamark and heat embossed it in Gold.  I edged the panel with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and then matted it on a piece of Champagne Foil.

I used my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color the ribbon.  The leaves were colored with Stampin’ Write Markers in Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Garden Green.  Using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I added the Feeling of Christmas sentiment in Cherry Cobbler in the middle of the wreath.  Then I popped the whole thing on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a bunch of small and larger snowflakes using the dies from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits in Gold and Silver Foil – I adhered them together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue. 

I added some gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to the wreath and silver ones on the snowflakes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Feeling of Christmas in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White panel.

I matted the panel on Champagne Foil and Fast Fuse’d it onto my already-decorated inside of the card, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two of the swag images from Feeling of Christmas heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on the front.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the leaves…

…and then I added some more of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Easy, shiny and beautiful – all with some Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and the lovely images and sentiments from the Feeling of Christmas stamp set.  Hope you like! 🙂

Starter Bundle #1: The Starter Stampin’ Blends Bundle (Clear) – brings the stamp set and Project Kit to you, plus the coordinating Stampin’ Blends – Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette! This bundle is $74 and includes free shipping (I can only ship to the US, folks!), free tax and a couple of free goodies!  Buying it all separately (including shipping, tax and your Free Goody!) would be about $95 (sorta depends on how much you’d give Uncle Sam!!).  Here’s what you’ll get:

  • The Color Me Happy Project Kit
  • The Color Me Happy Stamp Set (Clear mount)
  • Stampin’ Blends (light and dark) in Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette.
  • FREE – Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Refill

Starter Bundle #2: The Starter Stampin’ Blends Bundle (Wood) – same super bundle – but with the Wood Mount Color Me Happy stamp set.  This bundle is $81 and includes free shipping (I can only ship to the US, folks!), free tax and a couple of free goodies!  Buying it all separately (including shipping, tax and your Free Goody!) would be about $103 (sorta depends on how much you’d give Uncle Sam!!).  Here’s what you’ll get:

  • The Color Me Happy Project Kit
  • The Color Me Happy Stamp Set (Wood mount)
  • Stampin’ Blends (light and dark) in Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette.
  • FREE – Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Refill

Don’t forget – with either bundle, you’ll get the November Online Tutorial which uses the beautiful Night in Bethlehem stamp set and bundled Bethlehem Edgelits.  We made some super projects for you this month – just in time for Christmas giving!

Need more enticement?  How about Double Peppermint Points for everyone who orders one of these bundles? So…do the math – that’s 12 peppermints for the Deluxe and 6 for the Basic.  Remember, when you collect 16 peppermints, you’ll get a free $40 gift from me! 🙂
