Hero Arts + Altenew | Celebrating 45 years + a Giveaway

Hey friends! Guess what? Hero Arts is celebrating 45 years in this wonderful industry and Altenew has teamed up with them to bring you a gorgeous new stamp set - Bloom & Grow.

I created a simple, paper-pieced card using that large, beautiful floral!


I used the Altenew Warp Speed Stencil with some white ink on a kraft background and cut it in half diagonally for an interesting design.


It's really hard to see in the photos, but I added some shine with a Wink of Stella shimmer pen. That large floral is such a great focal point that I didn't have to do much else!

Hero Arts and Altenew are both giving away prizes to celebrate!

There will be 3 prizes, drawn from comments left across the blog hop:
- One winner will receive the stamp set!
- One winner will receive a $25 shopping spree at Altenew
- One winner will receive a $25 shopping spree at Hero Arts

Hoppers have until Sunday, October 27th to leave their comments, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.


Be sure to leave a comment and hop along for more inspiration!
