PORTRAIT GALLERY

SNIFF

Those darlings of the rogue's gallery, From the Herd, will retire after June 2. 

SNIFF

As a final tribute (well, I cannot actually guarantee it will be the FINAL!) to the Herd, I decided to do another card, this time featuring just their heads.

At first, when the Hexagon Punch came out and it DID NOT match the size of the hexagons formed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, I was frustrated and discouraged. Since then though I've discovered just how cool it is that the two hexagons actually complement each other and play really well together, as can be seen in my tribute card:


To color the herd's faces, I used my meager supply of Blendabilities (SNIFF). I then fussy cut the heads and mounted them in place on their own hexagons with either whole or partial Stampin' Dimensionals.

And I TOTALLY love the Happy Birthday sentiment that comes with that set. I am positive I will be grabbing that one over and over forever more.


I love this angle of the card.


This color combination is a sure winner: Melon Mambo and the new In Color Cucumber Crush paired up with the crispness of Whisper White.

How could I possibly say goodbye to these adorable faces?!? Forever in my heart . . .

Please share with us which of the retiring stamp sets you are saddest to see retire in a few days. Anything else you regret having to bid farewell to?
