Double Duty - Hero Arts

Barb, Kelly and I have a few different challenge/series going on each month. You're probably familiar with at least some of them - Three Musketeers, Ready Set Go!, Stamp What, Hot Mess Success... and on the 22nd of each month, the Double Duty series. This one was Barb's idea - and it is a lot of fun!

Each month we each choose one stamp set from a pre-determined stamp company and make two cards using it. At least one thing has to be seen on both cards (color, embellishment, stamp, etc.). We post on a double-digit day each month, too - the 22nd. Today is the day!

This month's company is Hero Arts. I have quite a few Hero Arts stamp sets, but since I can only use ONE - the challenge is two cards from the same stamp set - I almost had to go eenie meenie minie mo.  I finally chose the Florals Poppy stamp set.

In keeping with the challenge requirement of at least one thing being the same on both cards, I used the same flower from the stamp/die set, the same color of card base (SU Poppy Parade), and one of the same die sets (SU Scalloped Contour).

WOW WOW WOW Jeanette. I love both of your cards. You did a wonderful job on both. Your coloring is wonderful and I love how you have popped up the flowers. The layouts are perfect to really highlight the beautiful poppies.

Both are so gorgeous - what's not to love here! The color palette and the beautiful scalloped die from SU is a show stopper!
