DCWV/Hampton Art Holiday Hop Day # 2



Hello and welcome to day two 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.

Day #2 of our hop is all about Modern! If you love trendy, cute and clean, or bold, sturated and artsy these ladies have created some beautiful projects to inspire you!

I loved using the Heirloom Christmas Stack along with the Hampton Art Stamps! They definitely coordinated well with their rustic yet playful feel. I created this little seasonal home decor piece to put on my end table. 


The spools came unfinished and I painted them with acrylic hobby paint. When they were dry I wrapped them with paper strips and added some stamps to the tops. I brushed them all with a little brown ink and sponge as a finishing touch. 


I hot glued the pins inside of each spool which was a very easy process. I spelled out the word "Joyful" on paper pieces and embellished each one. I love how you could take this concept and make one for any season, color scheme and word! Very versatile project that I have already received many compliments on!


{Supplies: Paper/DCWV, Stamps/Hampton Arts, Ink: Stampin' Up, Wood Spools: Maya Road, Memo Pins: Tim Holtz, Alphabet Stickers: Misc. + random fibers, buttons and brads.

I hope you enjoyed my project! Next, hop on over to Nina Yang's blog to keep the inspiration rollin'!
