Hello, friends! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I want to wish everyone a Happy (early) Thanksgiving! My family and I are on a road trip right now, and I’m taking advantage of some down time in our hotel room to write this blog post.

Last month,  Waffle Flower was kind enough to send me some of their new shader PLUS brushes to play with. This month, they are kind enough to allow me to give some brushes away – maybe even to you! This GIVEAWAY will be on my Instagram page, so CLICK HERE to head over there for all the details on how to enter. The prize is a Sampler Pack of the brushes, which contains one of each of the new brushes.

For today’s card, I have a new video to share with you. You can view that below or head directly over to YouTube. I used the new PLUS brushes to show how you can add shading and details to small die cuts. All supplies are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this blog post.


I used Distress Inks for coloring my die cuts on this card. As promised in my video, I am listing the colors that I used below:

  • Leaves – Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough
  • Flowers – Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin
  • Bird – Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber
  • Bird Wing – Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade
  • Bird Details – Spiced Marmalade, Kitsch Flamingo, Carved Pumpkin

I hope this card puts a smile on your face! I think it is really sweet, and I love all of the shading details. Again, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I appreciate all of you so much.

Wishing you all a crafty day,
