Stamp Ink Paper: A Wedding

What do you give a friend that is an artist and her groom is a painter….LOL?  Is it obvious!?  I collect little charms and make my own chains to boot!  I then the charms when making cards.  On this card I used two cute little kissing love birds.  They are perfect for this wedding card because it has something old and something new and you can see what they are in The Details below.

If you need some inspiration for wedding cards then come on down to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge and you’ll be sure to be inspired by our team designers. 

The Details:

  • New Stamp Set.  The sentiment is embossed with white embossing power to make it standout on the dark wood paper.  Keep a look out for the Colorful Season Photopolymer stamp set (143726). You’re going to love it.
  • New Designer Series Paper.  It’s better than the previous wood textures they had last year.  Stampin’ Up! continues to one-up itself (LOL)…, keep an eye out for the Wood Textures Designer Series stack.
  • Spilled Paint.  I made the spilled paint spots with the soon to retire Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, so get it while you can still buy it on-line.  You’d be surprised how many people will want it after it’s no longer available. It happens with each catalog.
  • Love Birds Bracelet.  I collect charms from all over the place and also buy them on-line.  I use them to make gifts and put on cards (obviously).  These are two love birds because it’s a wedding card.

Congratulations on Your Wedding

Maggie's back in town!  WoW… what a whirlwind of even more travel since my arrival home.  It's been a whirlwind of international travel.  From Kyrgyzstan to California, Pennsylvania, and then Cancun, Mexico… I'm home until the next adventure.

Oh about my back… thank you so much for the well wishes.  I'm a whole lot better now… still a work in progress with continued physical therapy, but I'm 85% recovered.  Can't wait until I can start running again! =)


This beautiful wedding card was made for one of the two weddings I attended since returning from deployment.  Two very great friends were married and I was honored for being asked to witness the union of love.

This card captured that love too… don't you think?  I used the Top Note Stampin' Up! Bigz Die and made the buckle with Silver Glimmer Paper and two square punches.

You can make them too… punch the smaller square first then the larger one around it… you'll have a frame.  Simply cut out a small piece to glue in the middle and slip the ribbon in the middle.  It's that easy!

The heart was made using a small piece of left over Red Glimmer Paper with the Small Heart punch.

Wedding Congrats1

I made this card to celebrate my one year Maggie Made Cards blog anniversary.  A huge THANK YOU is never enough to my younger brother, Frank. My vision for the blog has been to CREATE, SHARE, AND INSPIRE you!  I hope I am doing just that.  My eyes light up and if there’s any stress in my bones, it just withers away when I’m stamping. You too can brush up on your skills, whether you are a beginner or advanced card maker.  My goal right now is to introduce you to your greatest stress reliever! Will you take the Stampin’ Up! TEST DRIVE and get your starter kit before the New Year?  Make it your Christmas gift to yourself or maybe you can hint about receiving a Stampin’ Up! gift certificate. To create the rubies, I took colored in our basic rhinestones with a red Sharpie.  The secret to perfect flames is to place small pieces of Daffodil Delight on the smallest pear shapes on the Sizzlets Large Paper Doily as shown below and run it through your Big Shot.
