Welcome to the Crazy Crafters' Blog Hop with our Special Guest stamper, Lea Denton - we are thrilled to have Lea join us this month and so excited to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by her . 
 
Whether you are starting the blog hop here at my blog, Stephanie Fischer - The Crafty Thinker, or have come from the person before me, be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.
Lea is such a talented and inspirational card-maker that it was hard to choose which project to CASE!  Eventually, however, I chose this.

I was asked to make a 30th Anniversary card for someone who likes pink.  Since it's the Pearl Anniversary, I made sure to add as many pearls as possible.  I actually made two cards  so that I could send one too - the other one can be seen here (but remember to finish making your way around this amazing blog hop!).

This card mixes retiring, current continuing and brand new products.

A Pearl Anniversary (that's 30!) card featuring retiring, continuing and brand new Stampin' Up products

To the basic Tip Top Taupe card (retiring) I added a panel decorated with more Tip Top Taupe, Powder Pink (new colour), Whisper White and Silver Foil Sheet.  

I cut the scallops with one of the dies in the new Seasonal Layers thinlits set.  Each colour is cut to butt up against its neighbours to give a flat finish.

To the pink section, I added some Silver Foil Sheet cut with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.

The flower is cut with the retiring (sob!) Botanical Builder framelits.  The Powder Pink layer is edged with Rose Red ink and the Whisper White layer is edged with Versamark and heat embossed with Silver.  The centre is a Metal Rimmed Pearl.
The leaves are cut from the new Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with a die from the new Lovely Laurel Thinlits.  The finished flower was adhered with a Stampin' Dimensional to the Rose Red label cut with another die from the new Lovely Laurel Thinlits.

The flower centre piece has some depth to it


The banner and greeting at the top was stamped with Basic Black ink onto Silver Metal Foil.  They're from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and matches the Classic Label Punch. I was worried that the ink may smudge on the shiny surface of the foil sheet but I found it set well with a wave of the heat tool.

I hope you've enjoyed this card and I welcome your comments.
