Partners: Altenew + A Giveaway!

by Hero Arts October 23, 2019 112 Comments

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.

If you are having trouble viewing this video, you can watch it HERE in HD on YouTube.

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!

BLOG HOP! We've put together a collaboration blog hop between our team, the Altenew team and some special friends. There are three wonderful prizes up for grabs:

• One winner will win the Bloom & Grow stamp set

• One winner will receive $25 to spend on the Altenew website

• One winner will receive $25 to spend on the Hero Arts website

The winners will be selected randomly from across comments left on the blogs below. Get your comments in by Sunday, October 27th at 11:59pm PT and we'll announce the winner the following week. We know this hop is going to be completely loaded with floral inspiration!

Love this beautiful bloom and how pretty a card it can make and I love the sayings that are with it. I would love to be able to make beautiful flowers or blooms like this for my cards but as of yet I don’t have the stamps or dies to make them. If I did how mush prettier my cards would.
Thank you for all your ideas and for showing them to us on the internet.
Just beautiful !
