Hero Arts | My Monthly Hero June Blog Hop. Travel Tag. Giveaway!

Hello all and thank you for stopping by today to help celebrate the launch of June My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts (more on that below).

Because my hubby and I enjoy traveling, this kit is probably my favorite one to date. I love the tag die, the journal, the stamp sets – everything! Its perfect for an avid traveler and I can already picture myself using it during our next vacation.

We are not traveling anywhere at the moment, but because I wanted to showcase the kit anyway I’ve created a travel tag. I can see myself using it as a bookmark in a book I’ll take on vacation or even as an embellishment on the journal cover.

It took me about 4 attempts to make this one as the order in which certain things are done (like ink blending, die cutting etc) is important when making it. First I die cut the tag shape out of white cardstock, I only needed one tag, so I only die cut one (made a partial cut). Next I blended 3 colors of ink to create a sunset-type background – Dandelion, Butter Bar and Strawberry. I love this color combo, its great for creating warm backgrounds on small surfaces, if I am working on a card front I would typically add one or two more colors to this combo.

Next I die cut the Paper Layering Palm Tree die (I am loving it this Summer, check out additional inspiration using it HERE and HERE), dried my tag with a heat tool to make sure the ink was completely dry and double heat embossed Hello Adventure sentiment from the kit with the help of my mini MISTI tool. If you first emboss and than die cut, embossing powder tends to come off in the die cut sections and obviously the end result doesn’t look as nice. So its best to first die cut and than heat emboss.

I die cut another tag out of leather paper (this is seriously some awesome stuff – I loved that paper) and adhered my ink blended and die cut tag inside. To complete the travel look and feel I added a bit of airmail twine. I wanted the palm tree branches to expand beyond the tag, so I ink blended one more background and die cut the palm tree die one more time.

Using my scissors I trimmed the branches and adhered them in the center of the palm tree so they would overlap the leather die cut tag. To cover up the ends of the branches I added 3 yellow sequins in the center, they also mimic coconuts here.
