Partners: Altenew + A Giveaway!
You've already loved our Partners releases with Concord & 9th, Gina K. Designs, Pinkfresh Studio and Lawn Fawn. It's time for another release, and we are thrilled & honored to have collaborated with our friends at Altenew for the latest Partners stamp set! A special "Partners" Hero Arts + Altenew 6x8 clear stamp set is available on our website starting today, and will be at a retailer near you beginning November 6th! The PR105 HA + Altenew Bloom & Grow stamp set features a gorgeous, gigantic flower bloom and leaves, as well as seven beautiful mixed-font messages.
Jennifer Rzasa from Altenew introduces the stamp set, and shares a wonderful splatter technique, in the video below.

How about some more inspiration? Kelly Rasmussen from our team created an beautiful card to showcase the Bloom & Grow stamp set. Take it away, Kelly!
The gorgeous flower in this set is great for coloring, but I wanted to show how amazing it can be stamped as a simple outline image as well.
First, I created an ink blended background using Hero Arts Reactive Inks. I blended Fruit Punch, Taffy, Creamsicle and Lemon Drop inks with a blending brush to create the smooth gradient of color. Then I spritzed the panel with some gold shimmer spray.
Next, I stamped the flower, leaves and sentiment with Intens-ified Black Ink.
I offset mounted the stamped panel to piece of Pitch Black cardstock, then to a Dove White Folded Card. And for a finishing touch I added a scattering of black Enamel Dots. I love the smaller sizes of these accents -- they are great for clean and simple cards!
