Hero Arts + Altenew - Celebrating our Industry!


Today I'm hopping along with Hero Arts as we introduce the latest collaboration stamp set. This time Hero has teamed up with Altenew for - you guessed it - a beautiful floral stamp set! Altenew sure knows how to do amazing florals, don't they? It's called Bloom & Grow, and it's definitely swoon-worthy!


For my card, I decided to emboss the giant flower on some Vellum cardstock using Brass Embossing Powder. I wanted to show that you can create a lovely card without having to be a coloring pro!

I trimmed out the flower with some scissors, then mounted it on Adriatic cardstock I had stamped in Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink using the Hearts & Flowers Bold Prints cling stamp. The entire card is large to compliment the large bloom - 5 1/2 inches square. I used some gold cardstock from my stash for the base layer.


The stamp set is full of lovely mixed-font messages - I embossed "have an amazing day" again in Brass Embossing Powder, this time on Dove White cardstock, and mounted across my flower, also providing a spot to hide some adhesive. I finished the card with Clear Enamel Dots - which, by the way, are now back in stock on the Hero site!

Now it's time to hop! You should have arrived here from my friend Laurie's blog - if not, hop back to Hero Arts to start at the beginning! Next up is Lilith - I can't wait to see what she made! Be sure to visit all of the blogs along the hop, there are some great goodies up for grabs - $25 gift cards from both Hero Arts and Altenew as well as one of these gorgeous stamp sets. Leave your comments by Sunday, October 27th and look for the winners next week on the Hero Arts blog.
