Hey everyone, welcome back! It’s the first of the month, which means I’m so excited to join Altenew for the brand new October 2021 Build-a-Flower: Laelia (ALT) and Blog Hop! Thanks so much to Lydia Evans at the Altenew Card Blog for relaying you over to my blog.

Build-a-Flower: Laelia

Color Spotlight Card

I happened to get my Logee’s catalog at the same time as this Build-a-Flower: Laelia (ALT) layering stamp set. On the cover of this catalog was the Lc Orchid Fire Island ‘Fiery’ HCC/AOS (Laelia x Cattleya hybrid). I wanted to bring this intense orange bloom with beautifully red lips onto my card project.

I started stamping a draft layer of all the floral elements included in the layering stamp set. I stamped these images with Warm Grey Mini Ink Cube Set (ALT) then die cut the images. This gave me an idea of how to arrange my layers for the more intense colored layers.

After layering the main focal and colorful Laelia, I die cut the cluster and trimmed the image to suit my arrangement. I used the Tropical Forest Mini Cube Set (ALT) for the leaves and stem. The flower consisted of a mix between Warm & Cozy (ALT) and Red Cosmos Mini Cube Set (ALT). I added splatters on top of a panel of Woodgrain White Cardstock (ALT).

  1. I just knew this example had to be a Jaycee Gaspar design! It has the components of value changes, halftone or gray backgrounds with strong, vibrant colors in the foreground, and, of course, splatters! Love the design, Jaycee!

  2. The soft gray foliage behind that stunning color is gorgeous. I learn so much about color, dimension, and design from your work.


  3. I like how you incorporated the gray inks with the bright colors. Great background to highlight the flowers. Thanks for sharing.
