DCWV Hampton Arts Blog Hop


Hello! I am hopping with DCWV and Hampton Art today :). If you just happened upon the hop and would like to start from the beginning, please make your way here. If you've been hopping all along, you should have just come from the lovely Linda's blog. If you've managed to lose track, I have the hop listed below. At any rate, welcome! And on to the fun stuff - DCWV's Heirloom Christmas stack and Hampton Art stamps!

I have a group of three friends who are getting special gifts from me this Christmas, so I thought I would coordinate their gift wrap. The Heirloom Christmas stack and these Hampton Art Christmas stamps were a perfect match for some vintage-y tags:


The holly on this tag (and the slate-colored tag) is actually vintage. I love incorporating vintage finds in my papercrafting.


When I think of vintage, I tend to think of doilies (they are so trendy right now - how could you not?). So, each of my tags features a bit of doily that I used as a base for my stamping.


Jingle bells and twine make the tags even merrier. As well as a few splashes of red, white and black mist. I can't help myself :).


You have many more projects to see today, so I'll let you get on your way. Before you go, if you like what you see here, I encourage you to follow my blog. I post often and would love to see you back. Also, be sure to leave comments as you go - those comments could earn you prizes like this:


Comment by midnight, December 16th to enter. And be sure to hop with us again tomorrow as more designers take on the Heirloom Christmas stack and Hampton Art stamps with a modern twist. Have a fantastic day! Tessa
