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. :-)

Good afternoon and yes, it's really me!  I have been so busy with Lasting Impressions' blog and my card classes, here in San Diego, that my own blog has been ignored for quite some time.  Well, no more.  I am "on it," and I hope you will enjoy the cards and projects I will be posting more often.  Please leave a comment if you have time.  I would love to hear from you.

Now then, I just finished a really fun class ... making teapots.   Yes, you heard me right!  This is no ordinary teapot, it an Exploding Teapot.  I first saw the teapot idea on Gerda Steiner's Web Site.  It was an adorable teapot card designed by Larissa from Car-d-elicious using a really cute digital mouse image from Gerda Steiner.   I knew I had to make one!  So, I search the internet to find just the right teapot and I found a download, from a Stampin' Up dealer, for $2.50, to make an Exploding Teapot!  Here is what I am talking about:

Is this not the cutest thing?  This is the front of the teapot and I used cardstock from Lasting Impressions and the little flowers are a stamp and die from Lawn Fawn.  Here is the backside:
And here is the inside:
The Coffee & Tea Stamp Set is from Simon Says and I painted the images using Copic Markers and edges were stained with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I, of course, served tea and warm Scones with Lemon Curd and Strawberry Preserves.  It was a lovely tea party!  :-)


  1. Adorable Donna; would have been fun to attend your tea party! GREAT to see you updating your blog. I look forward to your new posts!

    1. Thanks Barbara. I'm working on it and as soon as it's running smoothly, I want to show off your beehive and the one you sent me. Can you send me another picture of your beehive? Thanks. XO
