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. :-)

Kaye's surprise!  Button Flower Vase and May's Challenge Flower Template #L9758,
with Tag Template #L9190, Colored Impressions' Software, colored
pencils, and seed beads.  Faux stitching and 3-D dots.
Good morning everyone.  Where did May go?  Monday will be June 1st and I will post some adorable ideas from the Design Team for June's Template Challenge.  Before I do that, I must mention that Design Team Members Kaye and Barbara both had birthdays in May and here is my funny story about their birthdays:

Kaye has always used a paper towel for dabbing Tim Holtz' Distress Inks, instead of a brush or sponge dauber, on her card images.   I have teased Kaye for years about her doing this and apparently Barbara sent Kaye a set of daubers for her birthday.  Now the challenge is out there for Kaye to use them.  Will she manage without her paper towels?  That is anyone's guess.  LOL

Kaye sent Barbara, for her birthday, her May's Challenge Template Card and an adorable vase of button Flowers and ... I got a surprise also.  Please see photo above for the cute flower vase.and card Kaye sent me.  Here is Kaye's card to Barbara:

Barbara's birthday card from Kaye using May's Challenge Template #L9758,
a birthday embossing folder (with dauber and Tim Holtz' Distress Ink),
Colored Impressions' Software, seed beads, faux stitching, black 3-D dots,
and the square is from LI Cut Out #42.  Great job!

Now I can't leave until I mention that Jan, from the Design Team, also had a May birthday!  And, I sent her this card (and one for Kaye also):

Donna's birthday card to Jan & Kaye using LI Cut Out #53.
and I made this card for Barbara's birthday:

and the new LI birthday cardstock.
Okay that is it for today.  Please come back on Monday to see June's Challenge Template ideas.  They are adorable!  Embossing joys, :-) Donna
