Share Joy Challenge-Taylored Expressions

I have an extra challenge to the usual sketch and color scheme challenge.  I decided to use the Holiday Grumplings stamp set in spite of the Share Joy nature of this challenge.  The expressions on these stamp images are anything but joyful.  I do think that they can’t help but bring a smile to the recipient’s face though, so mission accomplished.  This card is for my co-blogger Sandra who purports (like the Grumplings) to hate Christmas.  This is the same lady who owns a cajillion (spellcheck very unhappy with this word, but hey it is my blog) Christmas stamps INCLUDING this Grumpling one, so I don’t really believe her.

I was shocked that the sentiment stamped so well on the rough glittery paper, but if you try it, use Stazon ink so that the ink will dry sometime before Christmas.






Supplies:  Taylored Expressions Holiday Grumplings stamp set, Bo Bunny 6X6 Candy Cane Lane patterned paper, Mama Elephant Creative Cuts dies, Casual Fridays Fri-dies tags, unknown glitter paper from the bowels of my paper stash, recollection card base and Scor tape.
