More White Beards - Get your Grump On!

I just love visiting Blinkin', Thinkin' and Inkin', Ellen Kemper's Blog, it always has great punch art tutorials

My favorite part ~ Free!

For my "get well basket" project using Grumpy, I decided to include some pain reliever 'for when you are feeling Grumpy'. I picked up a little sample size pack at the drugstore check out and cleverly attached it to a little card like this:

A slot punch and ribbon - a very low tech solution.

Used red sticky strip to secure this flap to the card base

See photo below:

Here is the scoop on making Grumpy...

Click to see the photo larger and read the words
Chocolate Chip - wide oval (not the large oval shown in the photo), HOLE from a large oval punched with a wide oval to get the hat edge

Blush Blossom - 1 inch circle, leaf from Two Step Bird, Small Oval

White - two Scallop Oval, re-punch one of them as shown, smallest heart from Heart to Heart

Black - two standard hole punch, HOLE from narrow heart in Heart to Heart -->> move punch up from the hole and punch to get the narrow sliver for eyebrows, toss the black heart and scrap shown in the photo
Sponge Bravo Burgundy ink around the nose

Place the black of the eye at the TOP of the heart - add white highlight with gel pen

Layer beard parts as shown

Almost assembled but gosh, he doesn't look Grumpy yet! That is because the EYEBROWS are the key to his personality.

NOW he is grumpy!

Nose is popped up on a dimensional.

I like Grumpy - he may be my fave of the punched dwarfs - I just don't want to look or act like him. But I guess keeping those eyebrows plucked would make anyone grumpy. (grin)


  1. I absolutely love what you did. My husband is "Grumpy" he even has a Grumpy Tatoo. I would like to copy your grumpy for a card. Thanks for the idea. Great Blog.
