Brass Templates from Lasting Impressions and Rubber Stamping.

About Me

My photo
Hi. I'm Donna and the owner of a business called Luv2Emboss. I've been crafting since the moment I could color with a crayon without eating it first! I have been embossing with Lasting Impressions' Brass Templates for 20 years and I am on their Design Team. I also love to craft with rubber stamps and I sell Lawn Fawn products. I hope the cards and projects I display will perk your interest to try a new craft or play with an old one! Enjoy. :-)

is one of the new releases from Stampendous
by designer Laurel Burch. 

My friend Julie from The Stencil Specialist 
is hosting another Aussie Blog Hop in Australia
this week featuring this beautiful stamp.  You must live
in Australia in order to win the challenge, but if you live in
the good old USA like I do (or elsewhere!), I would
still love to hear from you!  So please leave
your comments below.

Here is how the challenge works
for those in Australia:
Leave a comment on this blog and the town you
live in to be in the draw to win this stamp.  An extra entry
is given for each of the designer's blogs that you leave
a comment on (listed below).

My blog = 1 entry
4 blogs = 4 entries

You have until the 31st of March to enter this hop.
Here are the links to the Design Team and
below are the additional ways in which I used
this beautiful stamp.


Before I actually mounted my Butterfly, I tried using it several ways and the last card, I actually photographed the card in black and white.  I am in love with this stamp and I think you will be too.

Fluttering with stamping joys, Donna
