Double Duty 2024 - Altenew

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!

FYI - I am a day early this month, due to another commitment on my blog tomorrow.

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 Altenew.

Card #1

Card #2

The thing/s that are the same on both cards (as per the challenge specifications) are the same color of card base, a green DP strip on both cards, and the same embellishments:

Let's check out the other Double Duty cards, too - but wait until tomorrow (remember, I'm a day early)...




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

These are fabulous! The sentiments really strike a chord with me and your layouts don't detract from their message. Very, very nice!

Two wonderful cards Jeanette - love the variations between the two cards, yet there are the three identical elements, plus the floral stamp.

These are both so pretty. Awesome Colors and the cards make me smile!
