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. :-)

Good morning once again.  While at Lasting Impressions last week, Kaye had a challenge for me and don't we all love a crafting challenge?  She had 3 images of this watering can (LI Temp #L9005) and she didn't know exactly what to do with them.  This is an older template and one, believe it or not, I did not own!  Yikes.  So, here is what I came up with:

Most often I will double-up the flowers whenever I layer flowers and I love how they look on the first two card samples.  I am also a fan of paper tearing and if you hold your paper and tear towards you, you will get a really nice white edge.  I used LI vellum and ribbons on the handle on the last card  which gave the can a cute whimsy look.  Thanks for the challenge Kaye.  I really enjoyed working with this watering can.  Embossing joys, :-)  Donna

Oh my gosh, where has the time gone?  I've been so busy with my own craft classes and the Lasting Impressions Blog, I've lost track of time and an opportunity to update my own blog just never happened.  Well, that is changing and I hope to be more efficient with my own blog and updates!  I recently returned from LI, in Utah, and I had not only a fabulous time but I enjoyed Kaye's embossing class, an opportunity to visit with two customers from Orange County, CA, and I demonstrated the LI software ... Colored Impressions.  Here are some projects I made during my visit:
