Hampton Art and DCWV Holiday Hop Day 2–Modern!

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, saturated and artsy these ladies have created some beautiful projects to inspire you!

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

-------------------------------------------------------------

Now, today I have for you, two modern cards made with the Hampton Art “Dreams and Wishes” stamp set, Clearsnap Metallic Colorbox Que and Cranberry ink and the DCWV “Heirloom Christmas” stack!

On the first card I used several sentiments and small images from “Dreams and Wishes” to create a holiday subway art panel.  Subway art is not only very popular and trendy, it is also SUPER easy to create using a clear stamp set!

On the second card I used a big, bold flower cut from a sheet of “Heirloom Christmas” cardstock and three large notch-end banners.  The flower draws your eye and the banners create movement from the large image over to the sentiment on the right side.

To me, the word “Modern” means hip, trendy, and bold.  I chose to feature subway art, notch-end banners, and chevron print – some of the most trendy ideas right now. But, new ideas will become popular and those ideas will change the way crafters and designers think of the word.  I love that element of modern design – it’s ever-changing.

---------------------------------------------------

I hope you’ve enjoyed my little corner of the hop! Now, to the part you’ve been waiting for – the PRIZES!!!  We have a total of FIVE prizes up for grabs because these companies are SO AWESOME!
