December Daily™ 2012 | Day Thirteen + Hero Arts Blog Hop

In addition to sharing today's December Daily™ spread I'm also participating in 2013 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop.

The stamp I'm using from their set of new releases is the Looped Flower Pattern (CG504).

Here's a look at my spread with an embossed vellum page as an insert.

To create the vellum insert page I stamped the background stamp using Versamark on vellum and then dumped some Silver Zing Glitter (embossing glitter) on top before cooking it with the heat gun. I love that silver Zing. Love it.

The heat embossing worked really well on the vellum.

I then cut it to the same size as my photo (about 7.25 x 4.25) and added Hardcover Silver Thickers along the end (and stitched them down for good measure). Those Hardcover Silver Thickers are currently on clearance at Scrapbook.com. I picked these up at JoAnn's yesterday.

"Celebrating December" and "Tis The Season" are part of my December Daily™ stamp set and also got the same embossing treatment.

Here's a look at the back:

Behind the stamped vellum page I added an overlay from Hambly + some of those little silver stars I can't stop using.

I also added a little strip of the stamp (embossed) along the bottom of the journal card. The lines were drawn with a Faber-Castell Silver PITT Artist Pen (awesome).

On top of the photo I drew a line with that same silver pen and added a silver thicker + a cute button from the Studio Calico kit.
