Pals Guest Stamper: Maggie Mata



One of my first introductions to the paper crafting talent of Maggie Mata, today’s guest stamper and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community, was in June 2013.  At the time, Maggie was serving our country as well as making cards in Kyrgyzstan and I shared a card I was sending her.  Such an amazing, dedicated woman!


She’s now retired (thank you for your service, Maggie) and taking her talent for stamping and passion for Stampin’ Up! to a new level.  I love this collection of six simple & pretty cards–each with it’s own personality and message!

A HOT TIP FROM MAGGIE:  She used just one sheet of Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper to make ALL six cards.  Head over to her Maggie Made Cards blog to learn how she did it and see more of her beautiful work!

  1. These one sheet wonders are super beautiful. What a fun thing it would be to have a big stash of cards. I make my cards as the birthday is near and personally for the person! But need to have a stash anyway! Sharing your cards is special as you are!

  3. Maggie: First up is a thousand and one thank you’s to you and all the other brave souls out there who have sacrificed for all of us at home in the United States. You are all to be commended and a job well done. Thank you, Thank you.
    Your cards are beautiful and I bet card making is a wonderful healer for all you have seen. I can’t wait to make some of them, but I don’t know if they will be as beautiful as yours. Thank you for sharing. I wish I lived closer to you and I would come to your class, but for now, I will have to try to case them. May God Bless you and all of the brave men and women who have served our country and the others who are still serving.
