Double Duty - Whipper Snapper

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 Whipper Snapper Designs. This is so cool because Barb actually lives very close to the home store of Whipper Snapper Designs - Creative Pals. It is an amazing store with tons of stamps, papers, samples, and more. Yes, I've been there more than once and always manage to leave some money there when I leave. 

I chose to use a cute snowman stamp called Kizzy for my Double Duty cards.

Card #1

Card #2

In addition to using the same stamp, I used the same embellishments on both cards - ribbon and a snowflake brad. 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.

This series will continue in 2022, but with some changes of who is participating - and of course some different stamp companies as well as some stamp companies returning for another year.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
