Double Duty 2022 - Pink Fresh Studio

In January of 2021, my stamping comrades Barb and Kelly and I debuted a new series/challenge. Double Duty was Barb's idea... and it is a GREAT idea! I've had so much fun with this series. Thanks for inviting me to play along, Barb!

This is Barb's description of the Double Duty concept...

Each month, we get to pick a stamp set from a predetermined company. Then, we will use that one stamp set and make two cards from the set.  Different images and sentiments from the same set can be used, or use the same image two different ways—Double Duty either way!  But, as an added challenge, one item must be used on both cards—same color cardstock, same ribbon, same stencil, same something.  Double Duty Again!  Post both cards on your blog on the same day—the 22nd of each month.  See-Double Duty again!  Have fun getting doubly inky each month with a different stamp company.  Let’s have fun!

Over the past year, things have changed a bit in who's participating, but not in the instructions. This year's Double Duty crafters are Barb, Carol, Darlene, and me.

This month's company is Pink Fresh Studio. I had a few stamp sets from this company to choose from, thanks to a grab bag I purchased last year. I really love their floral stamps. I chose to use one of those sets for my cards - Just a Little Lovely.

Card #1

Card #2

The things that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are: the sketch/design, the embellishment (Taylored Expressions Drip Drops), and the sentiment die (Altenew Bold Thanks).

Let's check out the other Double Duty cards, too...

Oh my Jeanette what wonderful cards!!! I have never heard of the drip drops I love the look of them. I need to go check them out. I like the colors you chose for each card. Your coloring is awesome. Just beautiful.

Oh. My. Word!! I love your cards...teehee wait until you see mine. Great minds, right down to the drip drops (although mine are from a different company).
I love the layouts and color schemes you've used. The bold "Thanks" is perfect against the background and as a contrast to the style of floral spray. Nice job!!

WOW--a pair of beautiful cards! I love that you are picking the same set each month--we will see what happens with CC Designs in April! I think the colors are so fun and the background papers sure highlight the flowers! Well Done!
