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. :-)

Happy 4th of July everyone.  It will certainly be a different one this year.  We are usually in Texas celebrating with family on the LBJ Lake in Kingsland.  Instead, we will be sitting at home, in our patio, watching the fireworks in the distance!  I told Dick I would light a candle, we will watch while having hot chocolate, and then blow the candle out at the end of the display!  Woo-hoo.  That will be our celebration.  :-)  Here are some wonderful 4th of July cards made by the design team that might inspire you for next year's celebration!

Jan's USA with LI Template #L9063.  Doesn't this card truly shout American?  I love it.

Another great card from Jan.  Happy Birthday 4th of July with LI Template #S438.

Jan's Fireworks using LI Templates #L9311 (hat/fireworks) and #S438 (heart).

Donna's In God We Trust using LI Template #L9063 and Colored Impressions' Software.

Donna's God Bless America using LI Template #L9065 and Colored Impressions' Software.

Donna's Celebrate using LI Templates #L9064 (large star), #B227 (small stars) and Colored Impressions' Software.

Last, but certainly not least, here are some very fun ideas from the baby embosser on our team, Karie.  It has been such fun to watch her grow in this craft and if you haven't yet noticed, she loves the gnome template which was a special template released just for the Emboss-a-Lot Classes last year.  Karie makes good use of him!  :-)

Karie's Gnome using LI Template #L9826.  Uncle Sam never looked better!

Karie's Happy 4th Tags using LI Template #L528.

Karie's Fireworks using LI Template #L9311.  This is the front side of Karie's Tri-Fold card.  This is the inside of the card:

Karie's Tri-Fold.  Keep in mind, the front is the Firework's photo above.  When you open her card, you see "Uncle Sam" at the top, then the heart in the middle and the last one with the fireworks and star.  That last one flops down and you see this sentiment:
Karie's Tri-Fold using LI Templates #L9826, #L9064, #L9311, #S472, #S513 and #S503.  Karie says she is making several Tri-Folds to give to her neighbors.  Hmmmm, wish I lived next door!

There's more to come in the month of July so please check back and have a healthy, safe 4th of July.  Happy Embossing, :-)  Donna


  1. Love all the American cards. I am a bit jealous about not having Karie's gnome template. He is just a bit cute isn't he!

  2. Hi again Julie. Yep, I think it's a shame LI didn't make that gnome available because gnomes, for whatever reason (ha, ha), are very popular. Karie loves that little guy. As always, thanks for your comments. XO
