Stampin' Up! I {Heart} Hearts is perfect for Monochromatic Friendship Cards

I have been in the craft room a while today (I have a stockpile of cards to show you) but, these two I thought I'd post together, they are from the same stamp set, and colours, so why not hey?
 
Ok... So, these are made using the I Heart Hearts stamp set, from Stampin' Up! I was given this set from a good friend, and love using it because of this. I have a used monochromatic colour scheme for both, using Real Red and Poppy Parade with Whisper White. The first card was made using masking, and is a one layer card, with a sentiment from Well Scripted (which is retired *sad face*) The second, I have used my circle scissors to cut a circle and mounted it using mounting tape, the hearts have been stamped and fussy cut out to "pop" them. I have used a Real Red ribbon and a retired button.
I am entering both cards into Less Is More Monochromatic Challenge and just the second card into Hand Stamped Sentiments which is Paper Piecing.
I also wanted to share with my blog readers that my sister has had her baby, almost a week ago now. She had a very healthy little girl on Sunday last week. They named her Brianna Regina, and she is absolutely gorgeous!
This is Brianna with her older brother Samuel and their "Grumpy" which is what they call my dad, their grandpa. She weighed in at 8lb 9oz. 
Anyway, I'm sure I'll be back again tomorrow, to share some of the other cards I have been making, until then, Happy Stamping!

Hi Jess, thanks for commenting on my card. So weird, using the same set! It was only up to number 23 when I went to add my link in, and then up popped yours as well! It looks great in the reds. I'll have to give it a go as I love this set.

Thanks
