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. :-)

Donna's Sunshine Square Card using LI's new Summer Camp Cut Outs and an embossed watering can,  Template L9005.  I love the colors!

Good afternoon!  What a fun week and I hated to see Summer Camp - Week 2 end.  I loved it and it was fun to not only duplicate Kerry's projects from her class videos but, I also enjoyed adding some embossing when I thought it fit my card idea.  The above 4 1/2" square card is an example of that.  I loved Kerry's daisy tag but, I wanted to make it my own by adding some embossing and my faux stitching.  I love how it turned out.  Here are some more cards I made from Summer Camp - Week 2:

Donna's Slim Line Card using LI's Lengthy Notes and new Cut Outs.

I really enjoyed the "On the Farm" Cut Outs and I thought LI's Lengthy Notes were the perfect size, enabling me to add all of these cute images without looking too crowded.

Donna's Chicken Soup Card using LI's new Cut Outs and an embossed fence using Template L930.

And here (above) is another chicken idea I could not resist making.  I am so in love with LI's Gingham cardstock and when I first saw this paper, I have to say, I thought it would not work on an A2 card size, much less a 4 1/2" square card.  However, it does!  Yippee.  I added the tree to my card that is a new Cut Out that was not used in Kerry's videos.  I loved the tree so much that I also put it inside this card:

Isn't this tree and heart cute?

Donna's Caught a Bug Card using new LI Cut Outs.

Donna's Daisy Seeds Card using new LI Cut Outs with Template L9035.

The Template I used in the above card is really versatile!  You could put most any embossed image on the front that is "seed-able."  Hmmmmm, is that a word?  Hopefully, you know what I mean.  I love how this card turned out using one of the large Cut Out Daisies, leaves, and ladybug.  I used Tim Holt's Antique Linen to distress it around the edges of my embossing and mounted it all on one of my favorite garden papers ... In The Garden (small).  I added my faux stitching and 3 tiny LI Black Buttons.  :-)  And here is my last card for the week ... and I think my favorite!

Donna's Sunshine Watering Can using LI Cut Outs and Template L9008.

I really love how the above card turned out.  It speaks of summer, doesn't it?  I hope you will give these new Cut Outs a try and add your own embossing to them.  Happy embossing, :-)  Donna.
