Team member Barbara has been busy playing with the new cardstock from Lasting Impressions. And while this bunny with the cute cottontail is an oldie, it is one of my favorites! Look at these cute samples. Which one is your favorite?
Barbara’s Smiling Eggs, L.I. Template #S644.
Let the parade begin! With joy, happy embossing. 🙂 Donna
Easter will be here next month and I’ve started my cards … have you? I have to admit, there are times when I forget how much fun it is to emboss! Then I pick up a stylus, grab a template, and some of the new Lasting Impressions’ paper, and before ya know it, I am in love with embossing all over agaiin!. Here are some cards I made this morning.
Be sure and check the Home Page, under Templates/Spring Time, for some really adorable Easter Templates and look at our brand new cardstock. Now hop along and go make some beautiful Easter cards. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Our weather here in San Diego has been so crazy … crazy enough to turn a simple cold into a whopper … and I do mean a HUGE WHOPPER. As I am healing from this miserable cold (and now my hubby has it), here’s a quick look at one of my very favorite templates from Lasting Impressions. I can’t begin to tell you how many cards I have made using M19, Sketch Frames. First I use the Colored Impressions’ Software to print the basic layout on white cardstock and then I add an embossed image. Here are two examples of this very easy, and very quick, idea:
Let your imagination run wild and see how many L.I. embossed images you can mount on this layout … and make a few whoppers of your own!
Hi everyone. Christmas is behind us; the New Year has begun; and, gosh it’s February already and a great time to make someone’s day by sending them a homemade card to let them know they are loved and appreciated. Have you make any Valentines yet? If you haven’t had a chance to do so, here are some card ideas that I hope will inspire you. So, pick up your stylus, your templates and cardstock and do some embossing. A card filled with love can be sent any time of the year … go spread some love!
Christmas to me is all about family, friends, and sharing the holiday spirit. Here are just a few “oldies but goodies” I would like to share with you and from all of us at Lasting Impressions … we are wishing you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy, Healthy, Crafty New Year! Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Oh my goodness, how time flies! Christmas is around the corner and Fall is upon us everywhere but in San Diego! We are still having lovely summer weather and Christmas shopping is the last thing on my mind. I think I’m in trouble! 🙂 Here’s a look at some Fall ideas before Barbara and I start posting Christmas. And why haven’t we done that already? Because the winter holidays are sneaking up on me while I’m running around in shorts! Yikes. Happy Fall Embossing, 🙂 Donna
Good morning everyone! Halloween continues at our house and I now have my decorations up and I am ready to send my Halloween Cards! Here are a few of my card ideas and I hope they will inspire you!
Don’t forget Kaye’s class, Thursday night, if you live in the Utah neighborhood. Look on the Home Page for further details. If you have any questions about the cards above or you live near me, in San Diego, and care to join me in a class, please e-mail me at Luv2Emboss@aol.com. Happy Halloween Embossing, 🙂 Donna
Good morning everyone. Will you have Trick or Treaters this year at your home? I live in San Diego and the driveway to my house would have the best athlete gasping for air at the top! It’s long and steep. Consequently, we do not have any trick or treaters on Halloween night! The driveway “scares” most people … even little kids! I am not happy, of course, so I decorate my house anyway, and make lots of Halloween cards to make up for the lack of kiddos! 🙂 And do I still buy candy? Of course … just in case someone actually makes it to the top! LOL Here are some adorable over-the-top card ideas from Barbara and look for my Halloween Cards in the next couple of days::
Good morning and guess what’s coming next month? Yep, one of my favorite card holidays … Halloween. I love to make Halloween cards and projects and Barbara and I will be displaying some samples real soon. And Kaye, at Lasting Impressions, in North Salt Lake, Utah, has a Halloween class coming up if you are in the neighborhood. So stayed tune for some Trick or Treat fun. I can’t wait. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
Hi everyone and Happy Labor Day Weekend. I hope most of you had the time off from work and if you did, perhaps you were busy doing what Barbara and I were doing … laboring over these adorable new templates from Lasting Impressions. They are such fun. Take a look at this card Barbara created with the new frog template.
Isn’t he adorable … googly eyes and all. 🙂 Then Barbara made a second card with the new flamingo. Have a look:
And here’s Barbara’s version of the new cactus template (which we both love!):
Now my turn! First I made a frog card and I am so loving this new Gingham paper!
Then I struggled a little with the Flamingo (my mind is a blank, having just come back from vacation), but finally noticed a card on Pinterest that gave me just the right idea for this cute pink bird! The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and I couldn’t have said it better!
Last but certainly not least, here are my last two cards, using the cactus template. The first card is one I did in my classes, over the weekend. I’ve love braided cards and I recently shared that technique while visiting Lasting Impressions. For the second card, the front white cardstock actually flips up for the message inside. The card is flat like a postcard. I used Colored Impressions’ Software for the sentiment inside:
You can find all the wonderful L.I. products both Barbara and I used on these cards by going to the Home Page. Please also take a look a the new Coloring Card Kits! They are so much fun. I recently did the Succulent Kit because I was so enjoying the new cactus template and couldn’t get enough of the cute design. These kits contain 8 cards and matching envelopes … ready for you to color. I will be sharing how I color these Coloring Kits in my next Embossing Chat. In the meantime, have fun shopping.
