Hey everyone!! Hope you've enjoyed all the teasers that you've seen over the last couple of days. All of the new stamps and dies are now fully released and for sale in the MFT boutique right HERE. If you've just stumbled upon this post, you'll want to start back at the beginning of the hop, back on the MFT blog. If you've come here from Michele's blog then you're on the right track.
I wanted to share a little project I made using the new Pure Innocence Boy Scout stamp. My son is involved in Scouting - here in Canada our terms are a little different. At the present time he's a Cub Scout and so I've coloured his uniform to match his current one (which is why it might look a different from what you're used to). My son is always bringing home badges from Cubs. I'm pretty good at keeping up with the ones that are actually sewed on his uniform, but we get many from different camps and activities that are supposed to go on his camp blanket. And that I'm not so good with. So I took a gift box I had received at a promotional event and repurposed it. I painted it blue and covered the top with Jillibean Soup papers. I stamped out the image on X-Press It blending cardstock and coloured it with my copics. I used some twill and some twine with a button along the bottom and used the Layered Label die for the title. I stamped out "badges" using the Banner Day Alphabet (although now my son tells me that badges go on the uniform and crests go on the blanket - argh!). I thought it would be fun to add a little speech bubble from the Say What stamp set and die (or maybe it's wishful thinking - lol!).
I used some Echo Park Little Boy papers on the inside.
And here's what it looks like filled with all his
badges crests. At least now they'll all be in one place rather than scattered throughout my house. I also can't wait to make some Thank You cards for our Cub Scout leaders for our end of year celebrations because the sentiments in this set are fabulous too. Although I have a little time before I need to get cracking on them!
Don't forget to leave comments along the hop as one of the designers is holding a $15 gift voucher to give away to someone. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning. Thanks so much for stopping by. Your next stop along the hop is the fabulous Jen del Muro.
