Scraps of Darkness (SOD) November Kit "Snow Angels"

Happy Holidays dear friends!  I hope that everyone is enjoying this wonderful time of the year.  I am especially happy this year because we have snow.  We haven't had any for the past 2 years, so depressing. 

I have a layout (lo) to share using the wonderful SOD November kit "Snow Angels".  It is Bo Bunny at its best along with a little Kaisercraft.  Oh my, so filled with goodies galore.  I used the B&W version of this photo.  You would not have believed the color one, the sky and snow is so blue, it looks someone photoshopped it like crazy.  This lo showcases my grandson, Chase 3 years ago.  He so loves the snow!

The background paper is from Kaisercraft's "Frosted Collection" and is included in the Coordinating Paper Add On.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in "Faded Jeans" around the photo to add a little depth and shadows.  Then I used modeling paste and a Prima stencil (previous kit).  On top of the circles I used the Snow Marker that comes with the Main Kit.  It puffs up after you use a heat gun on it, VERY cool.  I added a few die cut snowflakes from Bo Bunny, which come in the Main Kit.

I love the vellum paper included in the Elements Add On from Bo Bunny.  I cut the strip of snowflakes to adhere across and then wrapped silver cord (I got that in this month's Scraps of Elegance kit). 

I used a Tim Holtz stars die on silver metallic paper from my stash and cut two borders to frame my photo.  I used a white cardstock and cut two more borders to shadow the silver ones.  I also used 2 different papers from the Bo Bunny papers included in our Main Kit to mat the photo.  I adhered more snowflakes on top of the star border.  These snowflakes I fussy cut from the Bo Bunny paper in the Main Kit.  I popped in a die cut phrase from the Main Kit.  I added the "Winter Sticker" from the Bo Bunny stickers included in the Elements Add On.

At the top of the photo I used 3 squares which I fussy cut from one of the Bo Bunny images paper in the Main Kit.  I also applied a square at the very bottom of the photo, which you can barely see.

At the bottom left side of the background paper was a framed picture that didn't quite fit the theme of my lo, so I fussy cut the image of the young boy.  It was printed on the images paper from Bo Bunny.  I thought that was pretty clever!

I decided to try my hand for the first time making a flower!!!  I have this beautiful die cut of a poinsettia from my stash.  I cut the top layer in white cardstock and the bottom in matte grey.  I applied silver Stickles to outline the embossing.  I added the "Silver Linings" Prills (comes in this month's Scraps of Elegance kit) to the center.  It's not perfect, but okay for a start.  I placed a silver leaf from my stash under the flower.

These gorgeous gold flowers come in the Main Kit.  I painted them with the silver acrylic paint included in the Color Add On.  I think they fit the lo better.  I tucked in a silver ribbon bow.  I also used a die cut key from Bo Bunny that comes with the Main Kit. 

The title came from my stash.  I used the Snow Marker (Main kit).  All you do is apply it to the chipboard and then use heat to make it puff up.  I really like the affect.
