Scrap Online Valentine

valensm1Yess.. it was another Scrap Online tonight with Tiets.. and after a slow start for me.. [had lots of things to sort out] I finally managed to catch up and finish my card.

I was very surprised Tiets was going to hold one tonight.. as some of you maybe know.. she is going for an operation tomorrow, but then again.. it might have taken her mind of it.. as it is a very nervy situation.

I’m sure you want to join me in wishing her all the best and swift recovery!

Tiets, wil je hierbij ontzettend veel sterkte wensen voor morgen!! en tot heel gauw, en heel gezond weer terug in blogland!!! Knuffies van mij *Ü*


For my card I have changed the shape of the image as it was a rectangle with the original project.. I used my heart nesties and roughed up the edges of the outer heart with my distress tool.

Then stamped Tilda while the paper was still in the nestie die, masked her and then stamped the love letter background over it all.. it was a very messy thing to do.. but I love the result 🙂

I then coloured the whole image with my Copic Sketch pens, background included..

Inside peek:


Quite simple on the inside with some tearing of the lush MME Laundry papers and distressing of the card stock.  I used another of my new Tilda’s from the Love collection.. they are all just so adorable!

Other card materials:

  • Stamps: Magnolia love collection, love letter
  • Medium: Copic Sketch markers, SU! white gel pen, Sakura glitter pen
  • Papers: SU! whisper white for stamping on with memento ink,  to decorate the card I used all MME laundry design papers that I picked up from the Range the other day.. couldn’t resist!!!
  • Tools: Heart Nestabilities, SU! scalloped edge punch, Tim Holtz distressing tool
  • Embellishments: Bohemia bling dots, SU! rub-on, Heart ribbon from stash.


Not had such great news in the weekend, my niece in Holland has lost her battle with Cancer and past away much too early in her life journey on Saturday evening..

Rest in Peace, Heleen.. Geen pijn meer voor jou!


Enjoy your evening everyone!

Hugs, Marlene x
