Ten years ago Catherine Pooler created a place for stampers to gather. This place is a world-wide community that called StampNation. Stampers, scrapbookers, crafters from all over the world gather here to share ideas in a fun, caring and friendly environment. 
To celebrate this fun place and it's 10th Birthday Catherine Pooler Designs has a fun Birthday Release that hits the shop tomorrow but if you're a StampNation member then you get early access to purchase today!

Now for my cards.
I'm sharing two today. One with a 'pile it all on' style and one 'clean & simple' style.
This first one is the 'pile it all on' style.

I made the background using the larger sentiment from the Let's Party Like It's stamp set by stamping it multiple times onto a piece of white card stock. Next I used the large stitched rectangle from the Postage Stamp Die Set to cut the panel and then I ink blended Samba ink over the whole piece. I layered it onto a piece of black card stock slightly larger than the panel and then adhered that to a white card base. I had a little smudge so I used a fine tip black marker and a ruler to draw the lines around the panel and that smudge is now 'gone'.
I used the Birthday Cake Remix Dies and cut out the cake pieces using Black Tie Gala Paper. I added those to the panel with craft foam for dimension. I did some direct to paper with Samba ink and then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and popped those up as well. I added the stars to the top of the cake instead of candles and then added a few around the cake and then stamped a few of the little images and added a few dots with with a marker around the panel.

This next card is very clean and simple.

I cut a panel using the medium sized stitched rectangle from the Postage Stamp Die set then stamped the happy birthday sentiment from the Let's Party Like It's stamp set with Icing on the Cake ink leaving a space to stamp a little fun image. Next I stamped the candles from the Birthday Cake Remix Stamp Set using Tiki Torch, Limoncello, Melon Ice, Lime Rickey and Party Dress inks. I added a few more of the little fun image and then added the panel to a white card base with some craft foam.
