This year I actually had time to make Christmas presents for a few people and what is even better is, I did it all with a week to spare!
I got some paper mache letters from Spotlight this year and covered them with Ten Second Studio metal that I embossed with a mixture of molds. A few of the letters have Grungeboard Alphabet Soup names that have been inked with Alcohol Ink.
This is the first time I have 'collaged' the molds and it was easier than I thought. When you are rubbing the metal sheet over the mold you sit there and tend to wonder if it is going to turn out but when you burnish the top, it all seems to work and you can't even see the bits you were concerned about!
Here is the video from Cheryl and Megan that I watched before attempting to mix and match molds! It is quite helpful!
I used some Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears for my brother's 'J'.
