Hello and welcome to day one of the two-day DCWV/Hampton Art Holiday Hop!

DCWV and Hampton Art are two companies that go above and beyond to provide a wide selection of products from classic, to vintage, to trendy and modern. So, when we decided to team up it was only natural that we would want to show you some variety.

On the first project, I used Hampton Art SC0273 Believe in Christmas Clear Stamp Set as the background of the project, by stamping the same sentiments repeatedly.  As the main focal point, I fussycut the image from DCWV The Heirloom Christmas Stack, CP-002-00878. For the second project, after all the paper layering as the background, I added a little sentiment from hampton Art SC0274 Holiday Dreams & Wishes Clear Stamp set.


Here is the price from Hampton Art for this amazing blog hop! You must be commenting on each blog that you visit to be eligible to win the prize.

Next hop will be Tessa Buys.

Happy Hopping!
