Dreamweaver Stencils Christmas Challenge and Crackle Tutorial

Today is not only Challenge day again at Dreamweaver Stencils, but I also have a featured tutorial over at Paper Craft Planet  showing you how to use Crackle Embossing Paste.  Be sure to head over for a chance to win a stencil of your choosing!

I used Mittens stencil for my card today along with Crackle and Matte Black embossing pastes.  After both layers of paste were dry I added Tim Holtz distress inks with sponge daubers then  some clear embossing powder.    I used Antique Linen all over and Barn Door on the edges.  I then added my clear EP and heated.

Here is what my final card looks like:

For details on how to achieve this look be sure to visit my tutorial on PCP!  And don't forget to stop by all the Dream Teams' blogs today to see all the Christmas goodness.


  1. Great idea adding embossing powder over crackle paste. Love the added texture and dimension.

  2. You already know that I love this card. I still say it would make a great wall hanging for the holidays.

  3. Very Vintage and very cool! I like the look.

  4. What a great card, love the crackle and I love the paper you chose!

  5. Very cool! I like the crackle paste technique, and I love the way you gave your card a vintage look.
