Today’s card is a fun Christmas Card starring the Rocky Horse stamp set.  An Old Fashioned Christmas warms my heart!


Stampin' Up!, Rocky Horse, Merry Bold & Bright, Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Jackie Beers



The Rocky Horse stamp set is a mix of fun, and retro, little Christmas pieces around the larger Rocky Horse.  The sentiment is included in the stamp set and I loved it as soon as I saw it.  It was the reason I purchased the bundle.  And yes, there is a bundle!  I just did not use the dies for this card.

The horse is stamped and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I left Rocky white more for time than for a white horse.  The bow was stamped on scrap Basic White, colored and fussy cut out.  It became my “bling” for this card.


The punch used for the sentiment is a new one in the Online Exclusives.  And I really love the shape.  It can be used for larger sentiments than most of the punches.  This one is the Heartfelt Hexagon Punch.  It pairs with the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set as a bundle. They are available now and will be used for the World Card Making Day that is open to everyone and is FREE!!


The papers I chose for this card were chosen for the “old fashioned” look.  So a Crumb Cake base and a touch of red of course.  The red became Poppy Parade for a little brighter look.  Then the DSP is from the Merry, Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper.  I knew the stars were perfect from the beginning.  And played perfectly for the old fashioned theme.  These colors all are repeated in coloring the horse and the bow.  An addition you do not see is on the inside of the card.  This card was made for my Stamp Club.  After cutting all of the papers I had a couple of small strips of the DSP.  So a narrow strip goes across the bottom of the inside White.
