Double Duty - Taylored Expressions

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! A few months ago Barb invited another friend - Carol - to join us in this adventure.

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 Taylored Expressions. I love Love LOVE Taylored Expressions and have several of their stamp sets. I also had the honor of meeting Taylor many years ago - she came to a Copic class that I took in Des Moines Iowa. She is just as sweet as can be! 

For this month's cards I chose Taylored Expressions' Poinsettia Bouquet stamp/die set.

Card #1

Card #2

I used the same color scheme on both cards as well as some of the same papers. The embellishments and dies are the same, too... so lots of similarities.

Be sure to check out Barb's blogKelly's blog, and Carol's blog to see their Double Duty posts, too.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Hoe pretty are these two cards Jeanette - loving the backgrounds that really let the poinsettia shine, and the simple gems to add that wee bit of sparkle
