Sunflowers And A Raven (by Asha)

Good morning everybody! Today I have 2 projects to share with you - both made using the new Harlequin Fragments A4 stamp sheet.

For the first project, I lightly inked the background and stamped the large harlequin design with Distress inks. Next I coloured a couple of sunflowers and leaves from the Sunny Sunflowers A4 stamp sheet with alcohol markers. I fussy cut and adhered them with some foam tape. To finish: a couple of flat-back pearls and a greeting from the BirthdayWords A5 stamp sheet. A very quick and easy make.

For my second, project let's fast forward a few months to Halloween. This time I made a misty background with one of the stamps from the Harlequin Fragments A4 sheet. The spooky extras are from the Spookylicious A5 stamp sheet. I heat embossed the raven and moon using black embossing powder and fussy cut them. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and adhered to the card with clear drying glue.

Thank you for stopping by today. Make sure you drop by regularly to see more inspirational work from the rest of the Design Team. In the meantime, start inking your new stamp sets!



  1. Using blue's complementary of orange for the sunflowers makes for a very vibrant & eye catching design & I particularly like the way those flowers extend beyond the perimeters of the card itself. The second sample is very atmospheric & shows how versatile that swirly stamp really is. The use of vellum for the sentiment adds to the sense of swirling mists beautifully.

  2. Great samples Asha , I love them!!!


  3. I love both of these cards. I always like anything with sunflowers on and the background to the spooky card is so unusual.

  4. Two great cards I especially like the sunflowers

  5. Oh these are wonderful - just fabulous xx

  6. Opposites attract and these two colours certainly catch the eye when used together. The sunflowers are just gorgeous and the harlequin fragment is just perfect the way you have placed it with the flowers to either side, and the hint of what looks like a cloudy sky in the background is so pretty. The second card is entirely different but so dramatic with the silhouetted bird image and the moon with the clouds and the bats, and the fragment you have used for the background looks like swirling water, but keeping it neutral with the vellum sentiment over the top makes it perfect for Halloween. Two lovely cards. x

  7. very vibrant sunflowers - love the raven card though. have to admit I did wonder how sunflowers and ravens went together!

  8. Gorgeous cards and loving the sunflowers.
