Holiday Hop Day 1: Vintage with DCWV & Hampton Art


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 seleciton 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 #1 of our hop is all about vintage! Whether you are talking lace and pearls and soft weathered colors or distressed, grungy and anged, if you love all things vintage we have some beautiful projects to show you today!

If you have come here from Jan Garber's blog then you're on track! If not, you should go back to the DCWV blog and start the hop from there!

Here's today hop list! (Giveaway info at the end of my post!)



I like vintage ... but i'm not good at making anything super vintage! There are some awesome designers out there that do it wonderfuly! But i'm not one! :) My vintage usually includes a vintage (or like) image, vintage paper and distressed edges, what i like think of as light vintage! :)


I started with some DCWV pattern paper and trimmed it to fit my cardbase, then i inked the edges with Mudslide dye ink by Colorbox. Their dye ink makes great ink to distress edges, i love to use Mudslide and Putty.

Next i stamped the ballerina image from Hampton Art/Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet 2 and embossed it with clear powder. Then i colored it with water colors. I trimmed my card stock, then i cut the panel into 3 strips. Next i rounded each corner of the strips, then inked the edges.



I matted the strips on some DSWV green pattern paper. I used pop up dots and let a little bit of the green paper show between each strip.

Next i made a twine fringe to edge the green panel (and i thought it added a nice vintage touch to the card) To do this i used double sided tape on the wrong side of the green panel. I made loops with my twine, once i did one row i went back down for a second and a third.



I stamped the sentiment in Mudslide ink, then inked the edges. But it still needed a little more distressing. To do this i pressed some of the dye ink onto a cleark stamping block. I added a little bit of water to the ink and painted some areas of the scroll. I adhered the sentiment to the stamped panel. And last added the panel to my cardbase with pop up dots.
