Craft-a-Flower: Carolina Allspice

For my Calycanthus floridus, I wanted stay true to the burgundy floral color palette. I started with white panels of cardstock. I mixed shades of red and purple from my Altenew Crisp Ink stash to get varying shades of deep red and purple.

I supplemented these ink blends with colors in the Jewel Tones Mini Ink Cube Sets to get more interesting color combinations. I checked my die cut layers frequently to ensure I was getting realistic depth in the flower.

I made similar ink blends on the foliage, using the Jewel Tone Mini Ink Cube Set to supplement my greens. After arranging my flowers, I die cut the coordinating sentiment in Craft-a-Flower: Carolina Allspice. I added pure white ink splatters for a dreamy aura.

  1. Holy cow, this is absolutely gorgeous! The dark background and the bold jewel tones go together so well and the white splatters remind me of a Christmas Card. Thank you.


  2. The flowers are so beautiful. The burgundy color you achieved is amazing. Great that you look at the flower and recreate it’s true beauty!


  3. What a beautiful creation! My grandfather had a bush of these growing at his house when I was growing up – they are so unique as a flower and have the most amazing scent! This is going on my wishlist!


  4. Amazing color Jaycee. Isn’t it funny; it’s called the Carolina Allspice but the scientific name is Calycanthus floridus? I have lived in Florida for 40 years and I don’t think I have ever seen this flower. Google says it has a lovely scent.


  5. Wow!! This is so beautiful ! The colors are so rich and I love that you have multiple colors that all blend together.
    Beautiful !
