You're Vintage! CCMC364 & SSSC277

Happy Thursday fellow stampers!  It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  It's a color challenge week and here they are.....
Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry and Basic Black.  
For my card, I also used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #277.

My main panel was a little too big to put off center, so I chose to put it smack dab in the middle.  
I just love this new set called {That Thing You Did}.  It's got such neat fonts and sayings!  I was immediately drawn to the You're So Vintage sentiment because it feels so 80's and that's the decade  of my childhood and teen years.  I love the nostalgia!  Anyway, remember how it was popular in the 80's for logos to have that repeated, shadowed look?  Well, that's what I was going for here.  I like it!

I used the new Elegant Dots embossing folder, but after the fact I realized I should have used the Tiny Triangles one.  I think it would have fit the 80's vibe better.  There were lots and lots of triangles in the 80's.....remember the Guess Jeans logo anyone?

I did think of using the triangle theme in the DSP though!  
I also used some of the new metallic sequin assortment.  
I hope you enjoyed this trip back to the 80's and I hope you'll be able to play along with the challenge this week!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!


  1. Well aren't you the clever one?! I LOVE how you stamped the sentiment with the shadow look. I do remember that and as a matter of fact, it doesn't seem that long ago. Lol. Awesome 80's card, Jenny.

  2. LOVE this! The first thing I thought of when I saw this was roller skates and a disco ball! Ha! Perfect tribute to the 80's!

  3. What a cool card! Great job creating the shadows on the sentiment, and great combination of papers and texture! Really fun!!

  4. I feel like this could be a trip to the 70's...reminds me of that anyway! Either way, 70's or 80's, this is a fun card! Love how you created the shadows behind the greeting by stamping it several times. Fun card!

  5. Love the retro styling on your card...the shadowing stamping looks groovy baby!!! :)

  6. I retro looking and it works so great with the colors! Very cool! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  7. Fantastic - so wonderfully retro! I love that shadow stamped sentiment Jenny - so very 80's, reminds me of my youth too! Thanks for the trip down memory lane this week.
