Double Duty 2022 - Unity

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 Unity.

I colored the image with Faber Castelle Polychromo Colored Pencils.

I colored the image with Copic Markers.

I stamped the single flower image from the same stamp set on the inside of each card. 

The thing/s that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are: the dragonfly brad, the overall layout, and the use of gingham designer papers.

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

These are really, really good! Your coloring is so perfect on each card. I think that God knew that I needed to hear the message on your first card. Lovely job on these!

What beautiful cards Jeanette - gorgeous colouring on both cards, and I love the gingham paper on both. The dragonfly brad is the perfect accent
