Double Duty 2024 - Stampin' UP!

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!

The members of the group have changed a bit over time, but the premise of the challenge is the same. 

Oh, and I am a day early this month. Tomorrow is a DT day here on my blog.

This month's company is Stampin' UP!

Card #1

Card #2

The thing/s that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are: the layout, the dies, and the embellishments

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

Simply gorgeous! I love those scalloped rectangles and the color scheme of each card. What a beautiful image to work with!
