Our Design Team has created stunning projects with this inkpad to share with you today, Labor Day! This inkpad has only been available to retailers purchasing inkpads and distinctive accessories direct from Clearsnap, as a “thank you” fortheir support of our company.

Today I am sharing with you how to create this “A” Badge, made using my very own exclusive Made in the USA inkpad. It will be a fun way to reward my daughter for a job well done when we are working on preschool or for any of the kids to wear when they are showing superstar behavior.

Clearsnap – Colorbox Pigment Inkpad – Made In The USA; Jumbo Rollagraph – Doodles, Wordwords; Glue Gloss
Other – Stamps – Hot Off The Press; Cardstock – Bazzill; Chipboard Letter – American Crafts; Adhesive – Therm O Web; Die Cuts – Nestabilities, Sizzix; Scoring Board – Scor-Pal; Other – Ribbon, Felt, Safety Pin
1. Cut 7 pieces of ribbon to equal lengths and stamp white pieces with stars dipped in red and blue ink from the Made In the USA Inkpad. Allow to dry.
2. Die cut felt and cardstock to create the elements of the badge. I used felt as the backing because it is more sturdy and won’t tear when pinning over time.
3. Stamp with Rollagraph on felt and cardstock with red, white and blue inks. Since I used the jumbo size, I had to ink one edge of the Rollagraph wheel then flip it around to ink the other side. The normal size Rollagraph should fit on the multi- colored pads perfectly.
4. Layers your elements together with Glue Gloss and use foam squares to create dimension.
5. Top with chipboard letter “A” and attach pin to the backside of the badge. Give to your own little superstar!

Thanks for stopping by! Next stop on the hop is the lovely and talented Jean.
