March Double Duty with Colorado Craft Company!

It's the 22nd and time for another Double Duty post!  On the 22nd of each month some of us challenge ourselves to create 2 different cards repeating the same image, sentiment, etc on each card.  We have a predetermined list of the stamp company or challenge for each month and then...away we go!

This month we feature Colorado Craft Company.  I chose their "Well Loved" set and matching dies. 

Here are my two cards:

The card with the dry embossed tree, flowers and heart shaped papers was the first card I made with the set. 

The bear is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, and the heart and sentiment are stamped with Cherry Red ink by Gina K Designs.  The flowers are by The Paper Studio and have been in my stash forever

For the second card, I stamped the bear with Memento's Rich Cocoa ink and sponged on Warm Cocoa and Sandy Beach inks by Gina K Designs. The heart was stamped with Gina K's Cherry Red, and both were die cut.

This card features Lost Lagoon card stock by Stampin' Up, black panels and scraps of designer paper that have also been in my stash a very long time!

The red heart gems are by Recollections, and you guessed it...have also been neglected for years in my embellishment box!

I confess to being a bit pleased that I used up so many old scraps and embellishments for this month's challenge.  

This set represents my first purchase from Colorado Crafts Company, and I can see me using this set often for my grandson!

Thanks for stopping by today!
