Watercolor Lilies: Wplus9 New Release

 Hello Crafters! 

 Did you see that Wplus9 has a new release?!

All the flowers make my heart so happy! 
Check em' out!

It's amazing right?!
I couldn't pick which to use because they are all that good!

I finally opted for the big beautiful bouquet from Sympathy Lilies

I really wanted to try something different since I'm always doing one layer watercolor cards. 
I know I'm getting all crazy with die cuts and layers haha. 

I stamped my bouquet down in Fairy Dust ink which is light enough that you won't see it after the painting but because it's a dye it doesn't blend out the lines entirely. 

This is one of my favorite ways to no line watercolor intricate images. 

I used my Daniel Smith watercolors to paint my flowers after stamping them out. Once I painted them up I die cut them out using the coordinating die. I decided I wanted a bit more color on my card front so I pulled out a second piece of watercolor paper and stamped the flowers again in the right and left hand coroners. 

I heat embossed and die cut the sentiment then used a few sequins to finish it off. 
I adore that script font for real!

You can see the whole process in the video below 

Thank you so much for stopping by. 
You can head over to the Wplus9 Blog to see a whole lot more inspiration for this release! 



  1. Beautiful! But I went back four times looking for the video!

  2. Gorgeous! I saw the email and thought two Kelly videos in one day! ☹️ I then thought where do you find the time for as many as you do post! Thank you for sharing.

  3. What an absolutely gorgeous card and coloring..It's such a treat to watch your creative process in creating your cards.. Love the new Wplus9 release ❤

  4. What a fabulous card, Kelly! I always love watching you paint. I enjoyed a 1 hour hot stone massage last week - I can only imagine how wonderful you felt after 2 hours! Love your nail polish! I would love to know what brand and colour you used.

  5. This is utterly gorgeous Kelly. Beautifully done!

  6. Your card is designed and painted so beautifully...and, you're right, this release is wonderful. tfs

  7. Love your beautiful watercolour painted card. I love it that you shows how you colour this, I still have troubles with watercolouring and I learned a lot from you. Thanks for this and your (always) lovely story. I think every mum and dad need occasionally "child free time" so you can reload that is so good for you and your child.
    I love the new release its awesome, especially the Flower stamps.
    Have a nice weekend.

  8. Just simply stunning! I actually love the look of the loose coloring in the background. I can see doing that technique for the primary image. And I love my boy too, but know exactly how giddy those precious moments of "me" time are. He's got three of his own now, and I work at paying forward so that he and his wife (my daughter-in-love) can have some non-parent time. Thanks.

  9. Thank you for such a well written article. It’s full of insightful information and entertaining descriptions. Your point of view is the best among many. Dslr camera price in pakistan
