Double Duty 2023 - My Favorite Things

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. 

Oh, and yes, I am a day late this month, since yesterday was dedicated to a design team post here on my blog.

This month's company is My Favorite Things.

Card #1

Card #2

The thing/s that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are: the Stampin' UP! Exposed Brick Embossing Folder was used for the background and I used pearls as embellishments on both cards.

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