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 Halloween Card using Cut Outs from Lasting Impressions.
Happy Halloween everyone (tomorrow!).  I managed to do a couple of cards to send to family and close friends (using the LI Idea Book for inspiration) and I will say that the late release of LI's Halloween Cut Outs and papers really made it a very easy task but, I did have to hurry to get them done it time!  I really like the one I did above which is layered and distressed with Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.  Here are a couple more I managed to complete and I hope they will inspire you to make some next year! 

Next month's theme is all about Fall and Thanksgiving.  Hmmmmm, guess that means more pumpkins, right?   Embossing joys and candy treats, :-)  Donna.

Donna's Bats!  Isn't this one fun?  I love the LI plaid paper that came out a couple of years ago and I've used it often ... not just for Halloween.  It's perfect for this card and I love the googly eyes on the bigger bats.  I used Ranger Black Stickles Glitter Glue for the smaller bat's eyes.  I'm batty for this card!  :-)

Donna's Bugs & Hisses.  This is the one my daughter Lori liked the best.  Being a cat lover, she loved the whimsey look of this cat and the sentiment.  So cute!

Donna's Pumpkins straight from LI's Idea Book!  The pumpkins are layered and stained with Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.  Of course, I had to add my 3 ink dots!

Donna's Candy Corn using LI Cut Outs.  I love this one!  I used Glossy Accents to make the orange layer pop and added my 3 dots as a final touch.  Easy peasy card!

Donna's Hocus Pocus Halloween card!  Who doesn't love a good witch hat and this card was so easy to do.  I used Ranger Stickles Glue Glitter on the purple band and Glossy Accents on the pumpkin to make them pop.  I also used Stickles Black Glue Glitter for the bat's eyes!  Ohhhhhhh, oh so scary!  :-)


  1. So very cute, I am trying to finish mine this morning, luckily these will all be for the neighbors and are going to be hand delivered with Candy attached!! I liked all of your additions, eyes, glitter, ink and the famous dots!! Happy Halloween!!

    1. Thank you my sweet friend. I hope you had a fun Halloween also. :-)
