Double Duty 2023 - Taylored Expressions

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!

Things have changed a bit in who's participating, but not in the instructions. The current Double Duty crafters are Barb, Carol, Darlene, and me.

This month's company is Taylored Expressions. I recently purchased Taylored Expressions' newly released colors - no, I'm not using them on my cards - and my purchase was large enough to get the free Berry Sweet stamp/stencil combo. I decided to use it for this month's Double Duty.

Card #1

Card #2

The thing/s that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are: Ink colors, dies, embellishments, even the DP was from the same paper pack.

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