Snippets Playground weeks 273/274

I think I missed the last two weeks in the Playground, sorry Miss but according to reports it was very wet and wild and I couldn't find my Wellies.

I have two cards for this fortnights challenge and you will see why.

I have used the Tonic -Floral Blooms Patterned Panels Die,  firstly cut out of a snippet of white card.
Then I cut it out again from the plain side of a 12 x 12 papers no idea of the make but it is called Oui Oui, terrible time getting spell check to let this through.
Inlaid the cut outs into the white card and then put the coloured outline onto cream card which I cut down to fit the panel. The cream card does have a bit of sparkle in it but of course it doesn't show here.
Couple of card candy on the first and a few pearls on the second. Left the second card blank as I am starting to do on a few cards now as I have enough Birthday cards for this year and next year.

Hope all this makes sense as I am totally lost.

Thank for calling

That's one fabulous die Kath and your cards are beautiful! Think I kind of understand your explanation of how they were made... :))

Brilliant work on both these cards. Great looking inlay, and I love both the color combinations! Pretty die too. TFS

Wow all that inlaying must've taken ages! Lovely results & nice colours.

Love these cards Kathleen, it must have taken ages to inlay the white, but well worth it.

Liz said...

Two super cards. You must have a patience of a saint to inlay all those little pieces - but so worth it. xx

Will be back to comment on cards properly tomorrow Kath - but almost wet myself about your comment suggesting am not being old enough to remember Flower Power! I was in the midst of it and lucky enough to spend time in London on a course, stayed in Earls Court, only six weeks but long enough for a Northern lass to find Kings Road, Carnaby Street etc. and totter around in white knee high boots and mini skirts! Happy days - although those darned boots had elasticated tops (made from PVC so elastic needed to keep 'em from doin' a Nora Batty) and almost cut off leg circulation! Travelled to and from course at weekends on trains with those old fashioned compartments - lordy, am so old :) xx

Kathleen said...

Can't stop laughing here, cos if you are almost wetting yourself then you are certainly old enough to remember Flower Power, you brazen hussie.
You are a STAR

Diane said...

Wow Kathleen what pretty designs, die cuts and

Hugs Diane

oh Kath, lovely lovely cards and some dedication there to save an use all those bits.. I nearly always loose some and have to re-cut that section of die again.
Have one tonic die and they are really great, aren't they?
Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration!

Di said...

Right Missus, after my earlier comments - am now wondering just WHO is losing the plot between us two? Did you really inlay all those teeny pieces Kath - absolutely fabulous work and such a lovely result. Am soooo impressed - clever little sausage that you are!

Christine L said...

Gorgeous cards Kath... they perfectly show the die in two ways!

Like you, and Di above, I remember flower power very well....... and remember those white elasticated boots that she was talking about. Only problem was, I was so thin then, that my legs used to wobble about in them.. a woman I worked with used to say my legs looked like two straws in milk bottles!! I've never forgotten that, even though times have changed and I wouldn't be able to get even an ankle in those boots now!!

Hope you're enjoying the sun.. we've just been up to Appletreewick for lunch.. was a nice drive.. but didn't get food as there was a wedding on and the pub was chokablok.. so came back and ate in our local!

Somehow I missed this masterpiece, Kath! I am late catching up at the Playground and just saw that Di had given you a gold star for this and rightly so! I love working puzzles and doing inlaid dies, but this has me bowing to you in awe!! Hugs, Darnell
