Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge - Day 31

It's Day 31 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  This is week is all about texture.

For this card, I decided to go for a textural 3D style card, using a background die plate and stamping. It's something I've not done for ages and a process I have always enjoyed, so it seemed the ideal time to try it again.

I started by cutting four piece of card to the same size.  

Using a Stamping Platform with the ballet dancer stamp from the Visible Image ""Born to perform" stamp set, I stamped the image on two pieces of card, ensuring the card was tight in the corner of the platform.

I put one of the stamped cards to one side and the other, I lay a Spellbinder die over the top, sorry, I don't know what it is called, I have had it for at least fifteen years, but its got a floral/scroll type design.  I secured the die in position with a piece of tape then popped it through the Big Shot.

With this die, it doesn't have a cut edge, so I pushed the loose pieces out but retained some of the others for added interest.

I used the same procedure with the other two plain pieces of card.  Then stuck these two together.  I then glued the sandwich of card on top of the stamped piece of card put to one side earlier.

Next, very carefully, I glued and positioned the stamped die cut image over the top, ensuring the die cuts were aligned.  I then trimmed it to size, mounted on to a piece of dark blue card and then on to a card blank.

To finish the card, using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, I stamped the Funky Fossil Designs "Congratulations" (from their "Stripped Back Sentiments" stamp set), on to an off cut of card, trimmed to size and then added to the front of the card.


  1. most fav technique using the background dies, love this xx

  2. This is a really pretty silhouette image of a ballet dancer Sam, and perfect for this fun technique, and the floral scroll die cut design works brilliantly over the top and love that you left some of the pieces in which looks fabulous...a beautiful monochrome card. x
