Hello and welcome aboard our January 2022 Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

Today I would like to share with you my artwork which features Close to My Heart’s January’s Stamp of the Month (SOTM) – Sweet Little Things S2201
As soon as I saw this stamp set, I had so many ideas buzzing around in my head. It is just so sweet, and is so fun to colour in – my favourite relaxation activity.
I decided to make a set of cards to share here, featuring all the images from the set. There are 2 Bunnies, a mouse and a bear. ❤️
I then set about colouring them in. I used Brown Grey Shades Tri Blend Marker and Ice Grey Blend Tri Blend Marker for the creatures and then a variety of my favourite bright colours for the flowers. A perfect activity for a hot summer afternoon.
I then had so much fun creating some pretty bright backgrounds for the stamped images using my Distress oxide inks and bending tools.
I used my go to colours – Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn. Here is a quick time lapse of my process. If you wish to see how to recreate this card in more detail, here is the link to my YouTube Video I made a while ago
I love how they turned out and think they make a great set. I have also used this stamp set on some pages, but as they are for my upcoming workshop I am not able to share here. I promise you they finish off a page beautifully and go really well with the brand new paper suite release of Sawyer.
This stamp set is available all of January for only $9 when you place a qualifying order or free if you are a VIP.
If you do not have a consultant, please contact me or place an order here.
I would love you to leave a comment before heading to your next creative hop with Doreen Watkins
I hope you have fun recreating these cards and share your projects with me.
Happy New Year and Happy Crafting
