Today's Class - I {Heart} Hearts

Afternoon all,

Hope you're having a good weekend and my eariler sneak peeks made you want to come back to see what the ladies have been making in my Stampin' Up! Class earlier today :)

Seeing as next month is February and Valentine's Day, I thought we would start the new year with a "love" themed class and make a couple of cards appropriate for some loved ones.

Both cards christen the stamp set I {Heart} Hearts which is lovely and co-ordinates nicely with three different heart punches. The first card is the easel style card, a technique that I did back in November 09 with the ladies and the second card christens the lovely Poppy Parade In Color products and the Heart Treat Cups along with the much loved Scallop Trim Corner Punch :)

So, without further ado, here are the two cards made today with the ladies:
