Snowmen n Scallops! oh my.....

This week at Creative Clear Stamps, we've been challenged to do a card with scallops! simple n easy!  but wait, one of our DT Members saw "scallops" in a turkey's tail....feathers! ... ok, the challenge bar was raised....how to think "outside the box" and see some scallops! (of course one DT Member has the cutest turkey with a "fro"...but that's another story!!) back to my scallops! looked at my stamp set...(Let It Snow from Creative Clear Stamps).....and looked....and looked...couldn't see a scallop............

so I just decided that everything I did on this card was going to be done with scallops! AND I wanted to share two different applications for snow...did you know that Puffy Paint would do the exact same thing as Liquid Applique...you did!!!!  wellllll, did you know that Liquid Applique would do the exact same thing then as Puffy Paint...hahahahaha  (hey all... it's like midnight here.. and I worked all day..)  SOOOO, if you did already know this...then stop reading and just scroll down to the finished card  LOL

But if you didn't, then maybe you will find this helpful....here goes!

These are the two items, check out the huge difference in size! hmmmmm, wonder which is the better deal??


here is my scallop card, ready to add the snow..glad I have a picture so you can see there really are scallops


adding the Liquid Applique

next step, is to heat set...you will see the snow rise as you apply the heat! don't get too close, will burn your snow....you don't want yellowed snow :)))))


next, applying the Puffy Paint


application is the same, you can see the Puffy paint is whiter! you can obtain the same thickness with the Liquid App by just applying more...you heat set the Puffy also


now, can you really tell a difference!!! mmmm, maybe - the PP is whiter (I think)

now here is my finished card!  I think they're making snow angels...

added some glitter AND stickles ....n

"Let It Snow"

NOW POP ON OVER TO CREATIVE CLEAR STAMPS and ENTER the SCALLOP CHALLENGE! where can YOU see scallops ... that the rest of the world doesn't .......LOL!!!

hope this was helpful to someone!
Have a blessed day,
