Brass Templates from Lasting Impressions and Rubber Stamping.

About Me

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. :-)

Oh my goodness!  I am the worst when it comes to updating my own Blog.  By the time I have my card classes and update Lasting Impressions' Blog, the month has quickly flown by.  If anyone can figure out how to get more hours in a day ... I'm there!  Here are a few recent projects:

Isn't this just the cutest puppy?  The stamp is from Art Impressions and I colored him with my Copic Markers.  The background plaid paper is from Lasting Impressions.

Here's another Art Impressions Stamp.  This adorable Elf was supposed to be a shaker card!  However, I preferred to just mount the top of his present with no Wobble.

Kristina Werner designed this Owl Card that I pinched and after much coloring, again with my Copic Markers (lots of them!), I mounted the Owls on the perfect plaid paper by Lawn Fawn.  The Owl's wings "flutter" when you pull the tab.  I nearly wore out that tab ... pulling it over and over again! :-)  The stamp is from Art Impressions and it comes with the dies.

Yesterday I made this Shaker Card.  L.I. Template #L9538 Apple Cider Jug.  I used Colored Impressions' Software to create the tiny apples to use inside the jug, along with red and green sequins.

And this card  is Plant Kindness, Lasting Impressions Template #L9708.  Shamefully, I have had this template for ages but never used it.  I'm so happy I finally got around to it and I love Lasting Impressions' Gingham paper, don't you?  We can all use a reminder to be kind and I have a feeling I will be using this design over and over again as I find the design so pretty and the message just peaceful and kind!  Embossing joys, :-) Donna


  1. Wonderful cards yet again Donna. It;s too hard to pick a favourite but if I absolutely had to choose I think it would be the dog card. He is just so cute. Onya girlfriend!

    1. Thank you Ms. Julie. I love the dog also. What have you been up to on "The Stencil Specialist?" XO

    2. Nothing for wholesale. Will be closing the doors after Christmas. However, Paper Cutz Online will be selling a lot of left over stock. I am using a lot of Crafters Companion products.

    3. Is it okay to link Paper Cutz on my Blog? Thanks Julie and good luck with your retail business! XO

    4. Of course it is okay. The more people who know who I am the better. Thank you for thinking of doing that.
