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. :-)

 Good morning!  One thing you may not know about me ... I don't sleep!  I've been like this all my life, but I think as I get older (and I will be 76 this year, yikes), I am sleeping even less.  I'm not a napper so I don't ever "catch up" even if that were possible.  My average is about 4 hours and the first hour or so, I am in a deep sleep and my husband says I snore, but I don't believe him!  LOL

I am hoping to post some spring cards soon and in the meantime, Karie reminded me she made a Mother's Day Step Card last year and I just had to post it again.  I think during this pandemic there are a lot of people who are stuck at home and receiving a homemade card just might brighten their day! And while you are thinking about that, here is Karie's very cute card to inspire us all.  

Happy embossing, :-) Donna

Good morning everyone.  Spring is on its way and my yard is so pretty ... filled with white and purple African Daisies and beautiful Iris.  And while I have 3 remaining Easter Cards I received to show you (see below), I want to mention that L.I. just released some very cute rain boots and umbrella Cut Outs (not templates).  Take a look at the L.I. Home Page when you have a chance.  And, if you happen to have similar brass templates you can create some really nice embossed images to get those spring juices flowing.  Here are a couple of cards from Karie ... and while I'm at it, let me also briefly mention that Karie does all her embossing on a window in her house (she has no light box).  This is one crazy crafter!  LOL

Karie's embossed Umbrellas and L.I. Cut-Out Flowers.

Karie's embossed Rain Boots.  My favorite!

Karie's embossed Umbrella and L.I. Cut Out Flowers.

Thank you sweet friend!

Nice job my friend!  Thank you.

Marian's embossed Chocolate Bunny from L.I.
Really, really cute and yummy looking Marian.
Thank you!

Thank you Karie for always supporting me with your wonderful ideas!  I hope to start my card classes again soon and I look forward to sharing more with you all.  Please stay safe, get vaccinated, and have an amazing day!  Crafting hugs, :-)  Donna

Eggstra Special from Karie!

Happy Easter everyone and leave it to Karie to come up with more cards last night!  For me ... these are some of her best!  I could not pick a favorite.  Take a look and enjoy your "Eggstra Special Day." :-)  Donna

Donna's Embossed Carrots & Bunny

Easter is just around the corner and my daughter and I have been having so much fun, in beautiful San Diego weather, crafting outside.  Hop along and take a look at these cute cards we made and those made by the rest of the Design Team.  First up ... my daughter Lori:

And these are from Karie:

Isn't this Step Card from Karie amazing?

And here is a sweet chocolate Spring bunny from Barbara!

And below are my cards.  I really enjoyed creating this year's Easter Cards with the latest Spring Cut Outs from Lasting Impressions.  
I hope you found some time to make and send a card to someone to make them smile!  Happy crafting.  :-)  Donna
