Double Duty 2023 - Pinkfresh 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 Pinkfresh Studio.

Card #1

Card #2

The thing/s that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are: I colored the images on both cards the same way. I used the same embellishments and the same color of card bases, too.

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

I love these, Jeanette! I really like how you colored both images the same, yet made such different cards with them. Both are simply lovely!

Oh my goodness Jeanette, these are stunning cards - love that you kept the image the same, right down to the colours, but made the cards so different with the way you have assembled them, contrasting the black and the white.
