Stencil Class Day 3 and Merry Mondays

Today is all about using embossing paste. I don't buy any - already enough stuff in my craft room... I make my own. Its super easy, feels soft and velvety when dry and it holds up well. It also dries really fast. For now I only have time to show you one card, but perhaps later today I'll show you more...


The stencil is by TCW called Mini Branches. The recipe for the embossing paste you can find HERE. Just keep in mind - depending on the humidity the amount of water varies, but can be easily adjusted.


The bird is Memory Box - perched Reed Bird. The little birds are by Impression Obsession. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

Challenges: Merry Monday - Red, Vanilla, Kraft and Chocolate with Ribbon 
CHNC - Trees
CHNC extra - anything Christmas
Snippets Playground - use a snippet

My ears shot up when I heard freebie! Thanks for the info on how to make our own freebie paste. Can you just let us English know what the big T and little t stand for though as we have different measurements over here? Would that be tablespoon and teaspoon.
Like your awesome tree using the stencil and paste. Looks super on the kraft backing. Hugs Mrs A.

I had no idea one could make their own embossing paste. I love your card. I like to see the colors red and kraft together. They look so nice.
