CTMH Austalasian SOTM Blog Hop – ‘It’s the Little Things’


Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Jenny’s blog – The Creative Heart then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you my creations which features the November Stamp of the Month ‘It’s the Little Things’  available exclusively throughout November for $33 or just $5 when you spend $75.


I love this whimsical stamp set as it is so versatile for all sorts of projects and today I have done a card and a box featuring the flowers.

CTMH Artfully Sent Card with Nov. SOTM It's the Little Things

This card has been cut using the Artfully Sent cartridge in the shape of a cage and there is a matching card liner to coordinate featuring a bird so that it looks like the bird is in the cage.  I have stamped the flowers and leaves and fussy cut them all out.  This stamp set is great for those that do not have a Cricut machine to cut shapes to fit the stamps.    There are all sorts of flowers that are great for layering but here I have made them single flowers to create a garland of flowers draping over the bird cage with just a peep of the bird in the cage.  I love tone on tone stamping and have used Thistle ink on Thistle cardstock and Glacier ink on Glacier cardstock.

Here is the inside of the card:

The second project has been inspired by the Annual Inspiration book.  I am really enjoying making three dimensional objects with the Artiste cartridge and the Paper Fundamentals papers combine really well with making boxes.

CTMH Nov SOTM Its the Little Things

I have used the Sorbet  coloured paper fundamentals paper and created the box out of page  44 of the Artiste booklet.  I then used the Artfully Sent cartridge and cut the pocket card from page 20 and then placed flowers and leaves on the front and finished the front with the ‘Just for You’ sentiment.

Materials used:

Cardstock – Glacier, Colonial White, Thistle, Cocoa, White Daisy, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, Canary

Paper – Paper Fundamentals Whimsy pack

Inks – Thistle, Glacier, Canary, Sorbet, Pear, Sweet Leaf,

Embossing Folder – Dots


It’s the Little Things is only available until 30 November from your CTMH consultant. I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop,  Denise’s Blog, Scrap Stamp Share.

Happy Crafting
