No Calories Here!

Good Saturday morning all!  Today is the day for Sam's shows and I thought I would show a few more samples that I made for her.  The first one is a bright and fun sample using her new candy shoppe stamps.  I just love it when I have new designs from Sam to play with!  She has been rather busy with her new little one lately though, so this is a real treat!  I love colour and these are a perfect excuse for me to pull out some fun decorative paper and go to town!  I did colour these with markers as I wanted the brightness.
 And don't you just love the ''sweets 1p'' label?  How old would you have to be to actually remember that?!!  The good ole days, huh?
 The second card here was made with the chocolate set and it is yummy!  Like the title says, though, no calories, just good fun! 
Here is a close up of all those candies.  I stamped them using a coffee archival ink pad and embossed them with clear.  It really does look like chocolate too!  Don't forget to tune in today at noon and 5pm to see Sam's other creations.  I know she has some special demos planned too!  All for now, Sue x

Love all the cards Sue, especially the candy-striped one. Sadly I remember my penny sweeties costing 1d - way before decimalisation! Will be making a point of watching both of Sam's shows today to see what else you have come up with.

Sue said...

Love the cards. Both so different, I like the brightness to the first and oh how the pink and chocolate go well together. Love the ribbon, I bought some like that last month when in Orlando found a fab shop there by the Mall.
Hope you are having a great show up at NEC, sad cause I can't get up there. Recording Sam's shows.

Fabulous cards Sue with lovely colours and Sam's stamps are lovely.
'Fraid I do remember when you could get sweets for a penny - in fact you could get 4 fruit salads for 1p from the corner shop!

Dawn said...

Lovely stamps, and great cards, I love bright colours on my cards. I am going to record both the shows as I'm rather busy today Dawn x
ps You don't have to be old to remember 1p sweets, I'm in my thirties and I remember buying two sweets for 1p at our local village shop!!!
