Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes Sunday, June 11th at 11:59pm, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the  following week.

My hop project focuses on the optional add-on products:
Let’s start at the bottom and work our way up!  The base is a panel from the Foliage Mix Layering Papers.  This card is a smidge smaller than an A2.  I decided to trim it down to 5 inches by 4 inches.  I wanted the tag to really POP.

My second panel is from the Earth Mix Layering Papers pack.  I stamped the Mud Cloth Bold Prints in Soft Brown Shadow Ink.  I used the Tag Infinity Dies on a panel from the Foliage Mix Layering Paper pack and stamped it with the Tribal Stripes Bold Prints in Green Apple Bold Ink.  I layered some linen ‘ribbon’ that I had in my stash and then added the sentiment and luggage from the Go On a Safari stamp set.
The sentiment has been stamped in Mulled Wine Bold Ink.  I’m loving the contrasting patterns and texture on this card.  Perfect for anyone going on a trip or any other type of adventure.  

Need more inspiration?  I had a project up on the Hero Arts Blog over the weekend that featured products from the Main Kit:

I snuck in the Tribal Stripes Bold Prints and some pale blue vellum that I had in my stash.

That’s it from me…next up is the amazing Ilina Crouse.  In case you get lost along the way, here’s the entire hop listing:

  8. Love your two cards but especially the first using that extra texture of the linen! Two great cards and I think I want to play in your "stash"!!! Looks like some fun stuff!!

  9. Love this new kit. I like your cards but esp. the one with the tag with the fabric wrapped around it. Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. Love the kit this month! I am thinking I need that tribal stripes background, and I already ordered the kit~

  11. the tag reminds me of one of the places
    we stayed when we were on safari. It
    was a wonderful experience and these
    cards and the kit are bringing back
    fantastic memories.
    thanks for sharing.

  12. What a great kit! The add-one are wonderful! I love your cards – the luggage is great for a bon voyage card. The elephant is so soon behind that sunset.

  13. This month's kit is great! Really like your tag card. "on the lookout for adventure" is a great sentiment.

  14. Such an amazing kit and I love the optional accessories. Love the linen wrap! Great touch. I find burlap too coarse so it would be a great replacement. You have the best ideas Amy!

  15. What a fabulous kit. I LOVE the cards you created. The backgrounds are so fun and I like the way you used the animal die cut. Great design.

  16. Totally. Love.
    Thanks for presenting another view of this set; sometimes not being bold with color makes a bold statement, too!

  17. Now I'm not terribly big on stencils, but these are most definitely tripping my trigger! I'm madly in love with your first card, Amy!! The colors grabbed me first, then those fabulous stencils wowed me. LOVE those greens!!! Wonderful stamps, too. Your second card is equally wonderful. That stencil really makes this card special. I can see this used for many, many masculine cards! I might have to mosey over to HA and see what's left, lol!! Have a great week, dear friend. Bev

  18. Wow, these cards are so beautiful! I love your color combos and the stenciling is so awesome, really adds great detail and look of dimensin!

  19. You are happy dancing with the two background stamps! I surely do like them, too. The tribal one is my favorite. Aren't you clever to use blue vellum behind the die cut – a great idea.

  20. Excited to see some examples with the add-on items. The color combinations on your cards are also unique…this hop is so inspiring, thanks for sharing.

  21. I love both of your cards. I really like how you used the suitcases on your first card period just makes me want to get up and travel.

  22. Ya know how they say if you snooze you lose? Well I must have been asleep at the switch, either that or the kit sold out in record time and so have a lot of the add on items. So have got my fingers crossed for luck! Thanks for sharing the great cards that you created and teasing me with possibilities!

  23. Great cards. Wow the set already sold out and I can see why. This is an awesome set and your cards are awesome.

  24. Great cards Amy. Thanks for using some of the add one. It's hard to decide to buy them and they haven't been used too much in this hop! Love your style!!

  25. I like your moon! I really need to find a way to get this set, it is so me. Will this be available anywhere else or at any other time?! Please make more, a lot more from what I'm reading on these blogs, so many people were unable to get them.

  26. Love the outdoorsy bamboo feeling from the 1st card! Although I think your moon is tied for 1st with Jennifer McGuire's as my faves!

  27. Great cards! I'm loving that mud cloth background stamp here too!! Wish the kit wasn't already sold out!!

  28. I think your cards are great. I love this kit. I love the background with the elephant. I would love to have this kit. I know I would use it quite a bit.

  35. You've created 2 lovely cards with these wonderful stamps. So sad that this kit sold out so fast – it would make amazing cards for guys. Those are sometimes hard for me to create. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards!

  36. This kit – and all of it's companion products – look wonderful. Wish I could win them all! ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. I always find it amazing when going through the blog hops how different each participants creations are. Lovely cards.

  38. While both cards are good, I really love the Adventure one the best. I have friends who LOVE to travel (and even have their own blog about their trips around the world) and your card suits them perfectly! Plus it is a great way to showcase the items from the Hero Arts kit and the add-on products!

  39. What beautiful cards! Love how you used that tag to reflect the theme of travel and adventure – so creative! And your second card is just stunning! Love the gray with the sunset colors. Thanks so much for sharing!

  40. Yea, just in time for Father's day. The men in my family will live the cards I can created with these new stamps.

  41. Nice cards! I like the addition of the linen and using both of the background stamps on your cards.

  42. I have to win this set. My kids love Lion King, Lion Guard, Chronicles of Narnia, Wild Kratts, etc. Please please pick me!!

  43. Hi Amy ~ I love that your card was a bit different than most with the luggage stamp and the texture you've added with your tag. Just lovely. Your elephant card is just plain fun and reminds me of my Aunt Helen who loved all things elephants. Thanks for the inspiration (& the happy memory!). ~HUGS~

  44. Nicely done on both cards! Now if only I could get my hands on that kit so I could put all this inspiration to use!

  45. I like the tone on tone background that you did for the card with the elephant. I wish this kit was still available! I really wanted it. ๐Ÿ™

  46. I saw your elephant card with the original kit and loved the watercoored background. I really like how you contrasted the two background stamps on the tag card. Striking!

  47. Amy I love the elephant card..thanks for showcasing some of the add-ons too!
    The card with the suitcases reminds me of adventure land at Disneyland! Love it!

  48. These are two lovely cards. That first tag really does pop off the page and I love the cut-out sun die.Thanks for sharing.

  49. So love this kit. Decided to subscribe starting in July. Don't want to miss another great kit. Thanks for sharing!

  50. I would love to win this set since it is already sold out! I hope they will release the animal stamp set to be purchased in the near future. I love love the animal silhouettes.

  51. Both of these cards are beautiful but I am totally blown away by the second one! I love your color burst sunset background and the ๐Ÿ˜is so regal! TFS!

  52. Such an amazing kit. Keeping my fingers crossed I may actually win one.
    I am totally loving your second card!
