welcome to the HERO ARTS + ALTENEW PARTNERS BLOG HOP. You are arriving from Michelle Short's blog (a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience).
Today, i am so excited to take part of this awesome collaboration, as Hero Arts and Altenew have joined forces to create the new Bloom & Grow stamp and die set as part of the Hero Arts 45th Anniversary.
The large floral image combined with the soft handwritten sentiments are perfect for cards, journals, and in my case Scrapbook pages.
As soon as i open the stamp set, i had the idea of combining color, size and dimension to create a new layout in my family album (Citrus Twist Kits).
Started with a pink cardstock background, and added a center panel to the page. Here, i used the Altenew Black Obsidian Pigment ink to stamp the large floral images at the corners of the page.
Next, i used one of the script font sentiments to create the title by embossing it with Altenew's clear embossing powder. I also extended the embossing detail to the pink area of the stamped flowers, thus making them stand out on the pink background.
For the other side of the page, I used the Bloom & Grow stamp and die set to create a single blossom -from the same pink cardstock as the adjacent page- and a few sets of leaves which i color using Altenew's Artist Markers (set D, set E).
I wanted to take advantage of the size of the blossom, so i printed my pictures to fit within the width of the page. All i needed was a few extra stickers and enamel dots to complete the page.
I love how this turned out, the new Bloom & Grow stamp and die set is beautiful and perfect for creating Scrapbook layouts. Cannot wait how you are going to use the stamp set.
