Double Duty 2022 - Whipper Snapper

Please Note: This is my second blog post of the day. If you are here to see my card for this week's SCS Sketch Challenge, please keep scrolling as it is the next blog post, or to go there immediately, click HERE.

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 Whipper Snapper. I chose both an image (Rainy Day Renee) and a sentiment (Friends Are the Umbrella).

My Cards:

The thing/s that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are: Every die I used has stitched edges and the embellishments are the same on both cards, as is the card base.

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